A quiet port town situated on Crete's western tip, Kissamos attracts mostly domestic tourists and possesses more of the quintessential Greek feel than livelier resorts strung along the island's coastline.
Venture out of the city with trips to Elafonissi Beach (in Elafonissi), Botanical Park & Gardens Of Crete (in Fournes) and Sfakia (Samaria Gorge National Park & Ilingas). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Falassarna Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Balos Lagoon, explore the ancient world of Ancient Aptera, and learn about winemaking at Manousakis Winery.

To see ratings, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Kissamos journey planner.

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airports are Chania International Airport, Heraklion International Nikos Kazantzakis Airport and Santorini Airport. In September, daytime highs in Kissamos are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 23°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
