Holidays in Sissi offer relaxation for families and travellers in a picturesque fishing village in eastern Crete. A much quieter spot than its crowded neighbour, the party town of Malia, you will find in Sissi an idyllic setting on the Mediterranean which still provides an exciting variety of water activities and charming local restaurants.
Perfect for an inexpensive holiday getaway for the whole family, cheap flights to Heraklion International Airport in Crete can be found from various parts of Europe. A bus takes visitors to other parts of the island to visit sites of cultural value and interest. This resort can be visited all year round as its weather is stable although vistors wishing to avoid the big crowds in summer may find it convenient to book their holidays before July. The time zone is GMT+2.
While Sissi's main feature is the white sandy beach where travellers can engage in popular watersports like jet skiing, windsurfing, paragliding and snorkelling, the town is also surrounded by scenic countryside ideal for peaceful walks. There are many tavernas nearby offering delicious local cuisine in the evening. For the more adventurous a bus can be taken to various attractions on the island such as the Malia archeological site and museum which displays artefacts from the Minoan place that once stood there. A few kilometres east of Sissi, Milatos Cave contains a small church built in 1935 to commemorate a 19th century massacre. A little further afield Crete is home to a number of historic monasteries which are notable for their frescos and icons.If you want more excitement you can easily get a bus to the local town of Heraklion to shop in its boutiques or to Malia for a night out.
