Beaches Museums Shopping
A quiet port town situated on Crete's western tip, Kissamos attracts mostly domestic tourists and possesses more of the quintessential Greek feel than livelier resorts strung along the island's coastline. Successfully managing mass tourism, the town serves regular ferries from the Peloponnese and boasts a cluster of sandy beaches, tranquil spots for long swims and sunset picnics. Begin your tour at the central square, which provides quick and easy access to town's seafront promenade. From there, walk to Kissamos' eastern beaches, which are lined with a string of cozy taverns where you can buy a cold drink and grab a free umbrella. Plan your holiday in Kissamos and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Greece trip builder.

Where to stay in Kissamos

Stay close to Crete's sandy beaches by booking a room at a seafront hotel in Kissamos. Although pricey, rooms with sea views fill up early in the season, so if you arrive late or without reservations, look for one of the area's family-run guesthouses. If you need more space and privacy for the entire family, consider the town's self-catering apartments, which provide air-conditioned bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens, and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the premises.
