Location

Superbly situated in a distance of just four (4) km away from the Falassarna beach. The distance to the closest beach the “Kolpos of Kissamos” is only 3,5 km and in a distance of 2,5 km is Kalyviani Gramvousa, full of well-known traditional taverns of the area. Moreover one will find in the close area the renowned beaches of Balos and Elafonisi.

Kastelli, officially Kissamos or Kastelli Kissamou (Kastelli of Kissamos), is the major town of the Kissamos County and has developed into a fairly large place with plenty of conveniences. This development is due to the fruit and juice canning industry, the vineyards, the well-selling olive oil as well as other agricultural products.

It is also due to the many tourists it attracts without even having sights or beaches. The reason for this is its harbour and the boat lines to and from Githio and Kalamata at the south end of the Peloponnese. Most foreign tourists, who arrive from their countries to the port of Patras, and especially the German bikers, find it very convenient that they can board a ship in the Peloponnese and get off in Crete. In this way they do not only avoid the unpleasant journey to Piraeus and the jungle of Athens, but they also get to explore Crete without having to go back and forth, because the ship docks at the westernmost port of the island.

The town has a history of at least 2.500 years behind it. In antiquity it was called Kissamos and it served as the seaport of ancient Polirrinia. It flourished from the classical times till the Roman period and was a close ally of the Romans, which is why they did not only spare it when they conquered other Greek towns but they even adorned it with many public buildings. These included a large theatre, public baths, and a large aqueduct which provides the town with water to this day! In addition, the Romans built many luxurious villas.

Today, foundations of Roman villas are quite frequently discovered in the townĘs building sites, and many of the finest floor mosaics have come to light, dating from the 2nd and 3rd century AD. One of these is in the archaeological site right behind the Health Centre of the town.

Kissamos has been well fortified throughout its history, because its close proximity to the sea and its considerable wealth invited many attacks.

Those who built the strongest walls, though, are the Venetians, who were masters in the art of fortifying a town. The Venetian Rule spanned the period between 1204 and 1664 AD, and the Castelo, built from the very first days of it, became a landmark of the town, which was thence called Kastelli. (They also named it Kastelli Kissamou in an effort to distinguish it from the dozens of other Kastellis all over Crete). During its long history the town was besieged countless times, so the famous Castelo was often destroyed and rebuilt. What survives of it today is a jumble of parts built at different historical times. These can be seen just about anywhere and unfortunately they have been left to their fate without the least provision for maintenance.

The port of Kastelli is situated about 3km to the west of the town. As you get off the ship and walk on the pier toward the shore, you will see the Rodopos peninsula to your left (west) and the Gramvoussa peninsula to your right (east), where you can also distinguish the country road that runs along the east side of it. People tend to get off the ship and immediately start their exploration of Crete, which is why Kastelli has very few hotels and even fewer restaurants! On the other hand, there are plenty of grocery stores, since everyone buys supplies before leaving for the big journey.

Camping is another interesting option you have. A few kilometres to the east of Kastelli you will find two good camping grounds, so avoid the Kastelli camping, which is noisy, neglected and situated at the...backyard of a factory! Take the new road to Chania and after 5km you will see an intersection. The sign at the intersection points you to the Mithymna Camping, a rather primitive establishment with few luxuries, but with beautiful trees, lots of shade, peace and quiet, and a large sandy beach in front of it with a very nice restaurant. In fact, this business was recently expanded to include... a newly built apartment complex, so if you change your mind about camping you can always rent an apartment instead! The second option is Nopigia Camping, which is about 1,5km further to the east. It, too, has peace and quiet and nice trees for shade. It also has flowers, common areas that are well looked after, and a large swimming pool. As you may guess, however, the swimming pool exists because the beach in front of the hotel is covered with fairly large stones and is rather uninviting.

If you are not particularly fond of organised camping we have still another suggestion. Continue to the east on the dirt road going along the beach, and right after you pass Nopigia Camping you will run into a fenced pastureland that blocks your way. Open the door, get in, shut it behind you, and keep going. After a while you will see a chapel with a covered yard and a small pebbly beach in front of it. This entire area is ideal for camping; itĘs full of trees, it has a drinking fountain next to the chapel with cool, refreshing water, and the ground is quite level allowing you to set up your tent comfortably. For your camp fire try to use the same spot as the people who were there before you. Finally, collect your garbage in a plastic bag and take it with you when you leave, because there are no barrels around.
