Kastelli Kissamou (Kissamos) is surrounded by a beautiful landscape with a gorgeous and calm beach that consists of golden soft sand and nice pebbles. The town keeps its authentic character and is built on the ancient city of Kissamos which used to be the commercial centre of western Crete.

Due to this fact, Kissamos was always well-protected by the strong fortification walls that Venetians built. Today remains of the castle can still be seen in Kissamos. The Venetian fortress called Castello is actually the landmark of Kissamos and is built at the top of the settlement. Churches, monasteries and beautiful mansions are also part of the ancient Kissamos which are worth admiring in the town.

Various accommodations of all categories can be found in Kissamos as well as camping sites, excellent taverns and traditional cafes. Regular local buses connect Kissamos to Chania town while ferries depart from the port of Kissamos to Gythion, the Peloponnese, and the island of Kythira.

From Kastelli Kissamou one has access to the interesting archaeological sites of Polyrenia and Falassarna, the impressive gorges of Topolia, the isles Gramvoussa, also called Pirate Isles, the idyllic lagoon of Balos, the wonderful sandy beaches and their crystalline waters, and the numerous enchanting medieval villages.
