Crete

Getting around

A national highway skirts the north coast from Kissamos in the west to Agios Nikolaos in the east, and is slowly being extended east to Sitia. Buses link the major northern towns from Kissamos to Sitia.

Less-frequent buses operate between the north-coast towns and resorts and the south coast, via the inland mountain villages.

The south coast is spliced by mountains and gorges and many parts have no roads at all. Paleohora and the southwest coastal towns are connected to Hora Sfakion by boat.
