Holidays to Kissamos (Chania)
On Crete's north-western coast, Kissamos is a relatively undiscovered resort that offers a peaceful break. With secluded sandy coves like Balos Lagoon and a wonderfully diverse countryside for hiking, a holiday here is a breath of fresh air for nature lovers. But there's plenty for culture vultures too. Ancient Roman relics and an archaeological museum make for excellent cultural conversation over some Cretan cuisine at the end of the day.
The main seafront promenade and pebbly beach in Kissamos is the hub of the resort in the busy and hot summer months.
A central beach in Kissamos, this sandy stretch has shallow waters and some good tavernas and cafes serving local food.
Housed in an old government building in Kissamos, the museum contains antiquities dating back to the prehistoric period.
Relics showing the resort's ancient past are evident in sites like Roman baths and ornate mosaic floors in grand villas.
With dozens of unspoilt and marked tracks and trails to choose from, the Cretan countryside is a trekker's paradise.
Kissamos has good organized diving clubs so whether you're a novice or a pro, you can explore marine life under the sea.
Settle in at one of the tavernas or snack bars on the beach front to enjoy the stunning sea views and European menus.
There's nothing like fresh fish when you're by the sea. Here it's usually served grilled with a squeeze of lemon.
