If you want a relaxing break on which you can get away from the stresses and strains of everyday life, a Sissi holiday could be the perfect choice for you. This village on the Greek island of Crete is quiet, peaceful and provides a blissful retreat from the party city of Malia for which Crete is most famous.
When you arrive in Sissi, you’ll be greeted by a beautiful port full of rich blue waters and little fishing boats bobbing around on their moorings as their owners hose down their vessel after a day out at sea. On one side of the port there is a pier where local women sit cleaning the catch, while there are plenty of Greek tavernas where locals enjoy delicious food made from the freshest possible ingredients. These are some of the best places to eat in the village and you won’t pay a fortune either.
After strolling around the village in the morning, you can spend the afternoon relaxing in the sun on the little beach near the port, or take a dip in the warm waters of the Mediterranean. In total there are four beaches in Sissi, while there are plenty of opportunities for snorkelling.
If you’re taking your family on a Sissi holiday, the happy train tour of the village is an entertaining way to get a feel for the area, while there is also a tour that takes you over the hills into the nearby coastal village of Milatos. The local bakeries are excellent if you want to pick up some lunch, while you can hire a bike to cycle your way around the village.
A Sissi holiday is truly an idyllic break and it reveals the true culture and charm of the Greek island for those who want to discover more than just bars and the usual tourist sports on their trip.
