Lassithi Sissi

General information

Sissi is a lovely tourist resort located 29 km northwest of Agios Nikolaos and 43 km east of Heraklion Town. It is a traditional fishing village with picturesque narrow alleys and great fish taverns, while its greatest attraction is its natural port, which looks like a small lagoon.  

Though the coasts of Sisi are rocky, there are many beautiful beaches in the wider region, such as the sandy Mpoufos, the pebbled Avlaki and other more secluded coves. You will also find many delicious seaside taverns and some lounge cafeterias to relax.

In terms of sightseeing, there is the archaeological site of Malia at a distance of just 5 km from Sissi, the monastery of Agios Georgios Selinaris, whose icon is said to be miraculous, and the historic cave of Milatos, about 5 km to the east.

    Delicious taverns
    Sissi is just like the other villages of Crete, just less crowded. It doesn't have anything special, but I can tell you that this is where I ate the best tsipoura dish in all Crete! The cook didn't tell me the secret but it was so soft and so delicious, mmmm... great!!
