Crete Discovery
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, Elafonissi 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, from the port in Kissamos there is also a boat heading to Gramvousa fortress and 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 on the left side of this page. From the bus station in Chania a bus 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. On this website some of the walking tours are described, which start from Kissamos.
