Welcome to Nissaki

Nissaki

Nissaki is a small resort; on the main road there are a handful of family run establishments that cater well for holiday-makers. It is an unusual resort in that it is in two parts, the amenities that line either side of the main road  and the down below, the beach with its tavernas, water-sports and the Nissaki Beach Hotel grounds.

Nissaki is really for those holiday-makers who are seeking a relaxing holiday amid inspiring scenery.
