Lassithi Sissi Village
Crete Sissi Lassithi: Sissi is a lovely tourist village located 26 km north west of Agios Nikolaos town and 41 km east of Heraklion.
Over the last years, Sissi has become quite popular as a summer holiday destination and one of the busiest ports of Lassithi. Although it has partly kept its authentic character, the village of Ano Sissi (Upper Sissi) is totally untouched by tourism and it is worth visiting.
In the wider region there are many beautiful beaches to swim, such as the sandy beach of Boufos, the pebbled beach of Avlaki and other less organized coves. You will also find many delicious taverns by the sea and some lounge cafeterias to relax.
For sightseeing, there is the archaeological site of Malia at a distance of 5 km from Sissi and the monastery of Saint George of Selinary on the way to Agios Nikolaos, whose icon is said to be miracle-working, and the cave of Milatos, about 5km to the east.
