Sissi village

The village of Sissi is located 45 km from Heraklion and 25 km from Agios Nikolaos, near to all the places you should see but yet quiet and calm.
The landscape is well balanced between sea and mountains. The sea is warm and calm and there are small, clean and romantic beaches.
There are paths for people who love biking and for those who prefer walking there are the beautiful roads of the village and the wonderful lanscape around Sisi where they can enjoy the contact with nature. The visitors can enjoy the Cretan way of life, as Sissi village is small, hospitable and quiet, but full of life.

Sissi’s main road reveals none of its particular beauty and character.The real Sissi, its inner soul, becomes apparent when you reach the end of that road and come face-to-face with the lovely little port in the rich, blue sea. You immediately want to stop and fill yourself with this idyllic vision, and well you should. The harbourage, which is literally a work of art by Mother Nature, was created by the sea burrowing deep far into the land, forming a long and narrow bay, protected by a small stone wave-breaker. This bay is so deep that it’s easy for someone to think it’s an estuary of some mysterious river, which, of course, it isn’t.
