Information about Sissi

Beaches and swimming

Sissi has a small sandy beach just across from the harbour which can be effected affected by the winds.

You may also swim in the sheltered inner harbour which looks like a large natural swimming pool.

Boufos beach, another sandy beach is closeby to the east of Sisi. It has been awarded the international Golden Starfish award. Bufos has facilities for swimming and sunbathing. During high winds the waves here can become very large so swimmers should exercise caution if it is windy.
