For years I spent my vacations mainly on the Greek islands, Skiathos, Alonissos, Lesbos, Kalymnos, Kos and Ikaria are the
islands I visited. I’ve been working for 25 years a an ambulance driver, but since my retirement, there is more time to go to
Crete. On one of my journeys I visited the small town of Kastelli-Kissamos. Kastelli-Kissamos is a village with around 5000
inhabitants. Kastelli-Kissamos is also named only Kissamos, its main industry is agricultural, besides it hasn’t been
discovered by mass-tourism yet. The sandy beaches Balos, Elafonisi and Falasarna, are located near Kissamos, these are
counted among the most beautiful beaches on Crete. These beautiful beaches can be easily reached from Kissamos by
public transport. One can take the car (over a poor road) to Balos beach. Upon returning by boat from Balos, the bus is
already waiting to take you back to Kissamos or Chania. Ktel is the bus company delivering the bus service on Crete, the
schedule for the bus, you can find it on the page LINKS. From the bus station in Chania you can take the bus wich is going
to Kissamos, you can buy the ticket at the bus station in Chania, but also on the bus itself. The area around Kissamos is
great for long walks. Walking tours can be booked at the Strata tourist office in Kissamos, which is opposite to the museum
at the plateia Tzanakaki.
