    Laidback luxury in Kissamos

    Kissamos strikes a rare balance of local and luxurious. While the town has emerged as one of Crete's most coveted beach resorts, it hasn't lost sight of its fishing village roots. This makes it an ideal destination for sun seekers in search of a laidback Mediterranean getaway. It also ticks the budget box, with some of Crete's most affordable oceanfront condos. As well as gorgeous beaches, Kissamos serves up some of the island's tastiest fare. Save your appetite for a smorgasbord of olives, cheese and syrupy red wine.

    Beach hopping in Kissamos

    Stay local and you can take your pick of 2 local beaches, both within walking distance of the Old Town. Mavros Molos is fringed by golden sand and colorful beach umbrellas, while pebbly Telonio champions a quieter scene. Kissamos vacation rentals are also a great base for beach hopping around Crete. Head north and you'll hit Balos Beach, a sparkling lagoon fringed by sugar-white sand and turquoise water. If you're snorkeling, keep an eye out for loggerhead sea turtles. Wash down a day in the sun with dinner at a waterfront seafood taverna.

    Admire ancient treasures in Kissamos

    Dive into Crete's ancient past at the Archaeological Museum of Kissamos. It's housed in a handsome historic building and is filled with treasures. Inside, you'll find gleaming Hellenistic jewelry, Roman coins, brightly painted mosaics and more. For a change of scene, jump aboard a boat and sail to Gramvousa, an uninhabited island dotted with the ruins of a Venetian fortress. Of course, if R&R is a priority, you can always spend the day basking on the terrace of your Kissamos vacation rental villa.

    Sun-drenched summers in Kissamos

    Most crowds arrive in the summer, when Crete enjoys clear skies, sultry temperatures and crystal-clear water. The season technically spans from May to September, though Kissamos receives most sun seekers from June to August. Planning a spell in the Mediterranean? With spacious living areas, private pools and stunning ocean views, Kissamos vacation rentals provide an ideal setting for family holidays, group getaways and wedding parties alike. For quiet beaches and a local vibe, consider visiting from October onwards. Crowds taper off and temperatures rarely drop below the 70s.

    Fiery sunsets in Kissamos

    Set on a natural harbor, Kissamos is hemmed in by the Gramvousa and Rodopou peninsulas. It sits on the west coast of Crete, around 20 miles from Chania. You'll find yourself surrounded by a patchwork of rolling hills, olive groves and vineyards. Hop over to the other side of the peninsula and you'll find west-facing beaches, such as Falasarna Bay. At sunset, its fine white sand and glassy water acquire a golden glow. Keep an eye out for playful monk seals, loggerhead sea turtles and Eleonora's falcons soaring overhead.
