About the village

Sissi is a picturesque fishing village built on the foot of a mountain. The village is located 24km west of the cosmopolitan town of Agios Nikolaos and 40km east of Heraklion the busy capital of Crete. Just as you enter the village you will come to a small winding road with olive groves on both sides which leads to the small natural harbor of Sissi.

Right after you arrive in Sissi you will feel the tranquility that this serene village has to offer. Sissi is completely different than its cosmopolitan neighbors Malia, Hersonissos and Agios Nikolaos. Here you will have the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing holiday, away from all the commotion caused by the thousands of tourists that are flooding all the nearby neighboring villages.

The heart and soul of Sissi is the village's natural harbor just a five minutes walk from the Castello Boutique Resort & Spa. Traditional fish taverns and bars are built around the harbour were you can taste local delications while enjoying the marvelous view.
