Sissi is located 40 km from Iraklion and 25 km from Agios Nikolaos, near to all the places you should see but yet quiet and calm.
The landscape is well balanced between sea and mountains. The sea is warm and calm and there are small, clean and romantic beaches.
There are paths for people who love biking and for those who prefer walking there are the beautiful roads of the village and the wonderful lanscape around Sisi where they can enjoy the contact with nature. The visitor can enjoy the Cretan way of life, as Sisi is small, hospitable and quiet, but full of life. It offers accommodation that serves all tastes, with hotels of every category (rooms, studios, apartments) with 3500 available beds, and a camping. In Sisi there are many small hotels with family character, who are characterized by the warm relationships between the personnel and the guests. There are also various stores and services that cover every need and suit to every pocket.

The small and picturesque port of Sisi looks like a big natural swimming pool and is ideal for walks by the sea. In the port there is the picturesque anchorage of the amateur fishermen where they moor their boats, as Sisi has lots of fishing places.
On the east side of the village there is the sandy beach of Boufos, with the international award of the Golden Starfish.

After the beach of Bufos, there is the small, romantic beach of Avlaki, that gives the feeling of a private beach.
From Sisi there is regular transportation to two traditional Cretan villages, Vrahasi and Epano Sisi.
