Sissi Beach Guide

All Beaches in or near Sissi

The beach within the port of Sissi: a small sandy beach protected by a wave-breaker. Not the best, but the most central.

Boufos Beach, 500 metres east, is small, but sandy, and has umbrellas available during the season. There’s one taverna for food and drink.

Avlaki Beach is a narrow opening between the rock formations, with a rocky surface. It is used mostly as an access to the excellent neighbouring beach of the Kalimera Kriti Hotel.

Kalimera Kriti Beach is a lovely, well maintained area perfect for swimming and sunbathing. Park your car in Avlaki and walk about 100 metres over an easy path on the beach rocks until you come to an oasis of smooth sand on the shores of a man-made bay. This beach is protected by a stone jetty, which provides for a smooth sea for swimming safely. Beach umbrellas are available, as well as sea sports, diving and the convenient hotel beach bar. If you want more seclusion, spread your beach towel under the shade of the sea pines at the very beginning of the beach.

beach in Sissi Crete

About 1.5 kilometres west of Sissi there is a lovely sandy beach next to the Hellenic Palace Hotel. This beach has a little island just off-shore and is ideal for those who like to explore the “deep” with mask and snorkel.

The beach at Malia’s archaeological site is about 4 kilometres west of Sissi, but drive slowly or you may miss the small sign indicating the turn-off for the site. About 200 metres after the site itself is a nice sandy beach with umbrellas and a cantina for snacks. It’s a large beach, usually not too crowded. Read more: Malia Beach Guide
