Luxury Sissi Holidays
This former fishing village is a calm spot on Crete's northern coast that gives a glimpse into Greek life. With a laid-back, traditional feel, Sissi centres around a beautiful port filled with bobbing boats, with a small but perfectly formed sandy beach. The water stays nice and calm, so it's a good spot for swimming and safe for tots to paddle in, not to mention fantastic for snorkelling. The heart of Sissi keeps true to its traditions, with a handful of locally run shops, Greek tavernas and kafenions (Greek coffee houses) where you can sample the local fare. As for day trip potential, you're only seven kilometres from the archaeological site at Malia, which features a Minoan palace dating back to 1900 BC.† For a change of pace, island capital Heraklion is a pleasant 40-minute drive along the coast.
