KISSAMOS tourist attractions

+5 attractions

Kissamos is a holiday resort in Crete. There is a port from which you can reach many islands in the area and to Piraeus, and there are several beautiful sandy beaches in the area.

The place is calm, a bit sleepy and life dies after the season. There are many pensions, hotels and apartments here. The area is extremely picturesque because Kissamos is sandwiched between two peninsulas, Rodopos and Gramvousa.

The beaches in Kissamos and the surrounding area are mostly sandy. Elafonisi Beach is located on a small island connected to Crete with a shallow lagoon. There is a layer of crushed shells on the sand, which gives the sand a pinkish color. Other known beaches in the area include Sfinari Beach and Drapanias Beach.

Thanks to its location, the season in Kissamos lasts from May to October. In summer, temperatures here reach 30 degrees, while the water in the lagoon reaches 26 degrees.

The coast around Kissamos is conducive to walks and admiring the views. The kilometer-long Balos Route is popular - a vantage point from which you can see the bay and the shallow lagoon. Another route leads to the Kissamos viewpoint.
