4km west of the port of Kissamos, we reach the thorp of
Trahila of Gramvoussa. There you find one of the most beautiful
beaches of the area. The locals call it "Pahia Ammos" (thick sand).
It is not very organized, yet it has sun beds and you may be served
by the hotel bar. On the beach of Kissamos, Kissamos Youth (Νεολαία
Κισσάμου) organizes a beach party (usually on August
16th) where plenty of people gather from Kissamos and
other nearby areas. If you head1 km due west, you find the beach of
Vigglia at the end of which the promontory of Gramvoussa and the
road to the lagoon of Balos begins.
