Instructions: The bus departs from the center of Kissamos, opposite the archaeological museum of Kissamos. Our office is also located there. Make sure to confirm your reservation with our office 10 minutes before departure. The bus takes you out of town on the asphalt road and from there the bus follows the dirt road towards the lagoon parking lot. At the beginning of the dirt road is the city hall kiosk where you will be charged with the administration fee of 1 euro (for people over 13 years of age). From this place the lagoon parking lot is approximately 30 minutes away. Once the bus reaches the parking lot you will follow a path that takes you down to the lagoon for approximately 30 minutes. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available for a fee while on the beach. Also, you will find a canteen and toilets both at the parking lot and down at the beach. There is also horse/donkey service that can take you up or down the path again for a fee.
Important notice: In order to be back to the parking lot in time to take the bus to Kissamos it is advisable to start walking 30 minutes before the bus departure time. This way you will have time to use the restroom and have a drink/snack at the top before the bus departs.
