If you are walking to Lissos, it's better to start early as the walk over the hill is open to the sun, with no shade. Lissos is interesting, with plenty to see and explore. Probably best to do a little research into the place first

“Worth the rocky scramble but best take a boat in the Summer heat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

A lovely 1.5hour hike through a little gorge from Sougia harbour, and then over a rocky plateau to a great aerial view of Lissos Bay. Just a couple of people camping on the beach overnight, and a few walkers on the E4 footpath. Ruins are generally self-explanatory but take the guidebook (and binoculars)
