Kissamos – a road to Western Crete

Roll between the rugged gorges of the Rodopou Peninsula and the whole bay of Kolpos Kissamou will open up in front of you. That's where little Kissamos hides, hugging the end of a huge headland of scrub-topped mountains, fringed with beige-hued sands, lined with promenades where whitewashed tavernas sizzle up the catch of the day. Sleepy and oozing Cretan charm, it's also a great gateway to the shimmering lagoon of Balos and the rustic hill villages of the White Mountains. And it's peppered with Kissamos holiday rentals of all sorts, from pool-ready villas to beachside apartments for two.

Activities

Sleepy Cretan living in Kissamos

With surrounding coves of rocky pebbles and yellow sand, fig tree-shaded squares and locals clinking Greek coffees in the seaside tavernas, it's going to be hard not to become just a little bit Cretan while staying in Kissamos holiday rentals. And when you're not lazing on a sunbed sipping rakija, you can always hop to the hill towns to see ancient olive trees, mystical caves and rustic chestnut farms. Or make for the pink-flecked sands of beaches like Elafonisi and Falasarna.

Weather

A summer that starts early in Kissamos

Kissamos – and the whole of Crete generally – is one of the luckiest spots in all of Greece. Being so far south means summers that start early and last long into the autumn months. You can usually expect pleasant temperatures in the 20s and oodles of sun from as early as April and May in springtime. Months like June, July and August mean scorching heat and high mercury levels, and winds that can bring strong heatwaves – you might want a Kissamos holiday rental with a pool or access to a beach to help you weather those.

Natural features

Concealed by headlands in Kissamos

Kissamos hides in the depths of its own bay, between 2 of western Crete's most iconic headlands. On one side are the untrodden reaches of the Rodopou Peninsula, a place undeveloped, where high cliffs drop to empty pebble coves. The better-known Gramvousa Peninsula is where the coastal mountains rise to mark the end of the island. On the far side is the sandy beach of Falasarna, with its rolling waves and coastal tomato farms. At its tip is the iconic Balos Lagoon. Take the camera to snap the turquoise waters and pink-flecked sands – just watch out for the mountain goats.
