In Sissi you can find just about anything you may need to complement your vacation: small supermarkets, internet cafes, souvenir shops, car and bike rentals, bank and ATM machines and pharmacy. If you’re wondering about the nightlife, there are two bars which are quite lively and stay open very late. However, if you’re in an extreme all-night partying mood, neighbouring Malia and Hersonissos have many bars and clubs – but be prepared for a “wild” scene. Taxi fare to Malia is about 12 euros, while Hersonissos is around 20 euros. There is a bus service also, but it doesn’t run very late and is not convenient.
The beach within the port of Sissi: a small sandy beach protected by a wave-breaker. Not the best, but the most central.
Boufos Beach, 500 metres east, is small, but sandy, and has umbrellas available during the season. There’s one taverna for food and drink.
Avlaki Beach is a narrow opening between the rock formations, with a rocky surface. It is used mostly as an access to the excellent neighbouring beach of the Kalimera Kriti Hotel.
