Sissi on the northern coast of Crete is one of the smallest resorts on the island and provides a haven for visitors looking for a bit of rest and relaxation. Even though this tiny fishing village welcomes guests every summer, Sissi has managed to hold on to its traditional values, friendly culture and most of all the beautiful quiet and scenic atmosphere that brings people back here year after year.
Although Sissi is a small and quiet resort, there is a varied choice of tavernas located around the harbour. Remezzo has fresh Greek food and provides a great view of the ocean – ideal if you’re looking for that perfect spot to watch the sunset. Nightlife in Sissi is very laidback, more for those wanting to enjoy a relaxed cocktail or beer by the beach rather than drinking games in a late night club.
Days in Sissi revolve around relaxing, enjoying the sun and eating delicious food at one of the tavernas. This slow pace of life is a huge appeal for those holidaying here, but for a bit of variety, you can take a walk through the village to admire the mountainous scenery. Alternatively, spending time down by the harbour or on the silky soft sand of the beach is a great way to enjoy the warm weather.
Sissi is a great hub for exploring other areas of Crete. The public transport is reliable and frequent meaning you can visit Malia for a wild night out or spend the day in Agios Nikolaos which has a more contemporary atmosphere. If you’re here with the family, head to Star Beach Water Park where there are plenty of rides as well as water sports and bungee jumping for those looking for an adrenalin rush!
