The gorge leading to Lissos
Lissos is located near Sougia, on the south coast of Crete, and can be reached from Sougia through a path that climbs between the hills, or by a small boat from Sougia.
The path to Lissos starts from the harbour of Sougia and is well-marked. The walk is very pleasant and after 20 minutes in a small gorge it climbs left and the next bay that becomes visible is Agios, the ancient harbour of Lissos. The walk is not difficult or long (1hr. 30 min.) but take water with you as there are no facilities in Lissos. To go by boat you will have to make your own arrangements in the village. In Lissos there are remains from the Greek and Roman eras, as well as interesting Byzantine churches.
