The village of Sissi is situated on the North coast, approx. 40km from Heraklion. It is home to an enchanting bay surrounded by palm trees, decorated by little fishing boats and offers the most magical of sunsets. An ideal place to relax and enjoy a cocktail in the evening before or after a delicious meal of fresh fish in one of the many restaurants you have to choose from.
Across from the port, there is a tiny sandy beach for swimmers and a promenade for a lovely stroll and stargazing at night. For those feeling a little more like exploring, the nearby Boufos Beach has an active archaeological digging site and the Milatos Cave holds a chilling history from the time that Turks occupied the island. Sissi was actually a strategic point for the Cretans during those times, an excellent location for loading and unloading weaponry without being discovered by the enemy.
If you have rented a car in Crete, and drive a little further, the archaeological site of Malia is worth a visit. Home to King Sarpidon, it is the location where the famous golden bee was found.
If looking for spirituality, near Sissi one finds the Monastery of Selinari (St. George’s) which was allegedly gradually built by moonlight only, by a monk, during the occupation time. This is a popular area for bird watching too as the enormous cliffs hanging over the 16th century church and (newer) monastery, are home to vultures.
