Kissamos Things to Do

  • the beach

    there is a little piece of sand beach in Kissamos, at the east side, there is also a taverna with nice meals. On the other beach at the side of the town is a rocky beach.

  • to Gramvousa and Balos

    From the port of Kissamos every day a boat is leaving for a day trip to Gramvousa and Balos. A very nice day.

  • Very Special Architecture

    Well, it's normal in Greece to build a two-storey house and then complete only first or second floor. I found this one special - building site on ground and top floor and completely finished middle floor. Keeps me astonished... ;-)

Kissamos Restaurants

  • General Dining Tip

    First of all please remember one important rule related to eating out in Greece - select restaurants with a character, those where locals dine. The presence of local people in a tavern constitutes the best recommendation for a place! Don't pay much attention ot places lacking local character.

  • Good meal at good price

    Taverna Petra is locatedin the main square by the bus station so you won't miss it. It serves good local food at decent prices. You can take a nice table in the center of the square's roundabout. There is a small and miserable fountain there. God, I don't know what my favourite dish was :) I'm a semivegetarian so I had to compose my meals from...

  • Fantastic!!!

    Definetely worth a warm recommendation is this nice fish tavern run by the Papadakis family. You'll find in on western end of seaside promenade of Kastelli. Enjoy its friendly atmosphere, wide variety of local specials and perfect sea view. The host tends to speak at least a few words in all languages of the world. Unless he's very busy, he'll do...

    Kissamos is not different from the rest of Greece as far as disposal of toilet paper is concerned :-) You need to remember that Greece has been facing sewage problems for years so used toilet paper should be put in waste bins.

Kissamos Off The Beaten Path

  • Elafonisi

    Elafonisi is one of the best beaches I have visited in Europe. It has a very exotic scent compared to other Mediterranean beaches and in my opinion it is a very worthwhile place to visit. Situated in the south-western corner of Crete Elafonisi has no permanent residents and it is famous for being the last stop from Europe to Africa for the...

  • old ancient town of Polirrinia

    Around of the town of Kissamos you can find many archeological sights, as the ancient town of Polirrinia. It's 7 kilometers inland from Kissamos. At the archeologic museum of Kissamos you'll find mozaic floors from this town.

  • Off The Beaten Path? That's Kissamos!

    Stroll around the town, visit small local shops and bakeries. Have a small cup of Greek coffee in the central square or a glass of Mythos, local beer in one of numerous taverns along the seaside.


Kissamos Favorites

  • Walk to the Port

    If you wish to see the surroundings of Kastelli Kissamou take a nice walk to the port. You can go along main road West, pass road sign saying "Well come to Kissamos" (yes!!!) and continue your way till you reach marina. There you can have your lunch or walk on to the port. The port itself is nothing special so you won't lose much if you end your...

  • Archaeological Site

    Whenever I'm in Kastelli I watch this site with the most of my interest. I'm not an expert on archaeology but the slowliness of works keeps me amazed... Maybe that's because two of those guys keep drinking frappe and the only the third one is working.

  • Flowers

    Should you be visiting Kastelli in spring or summer, you're going to see those beautiful flowers and fresh green plants. It's great to see large old used oil cans filled with growing flowers.
