Crete Greece

Why Hersonissos?

Just 25 km east of the Heraklion, Hersonissos is the most cosmopolitan place of Crete. It is 24 km away from the airport of N. Kazantzakis [Airport / city code: HER] and 26 km from the port of Heraklion.

The seaside town Port of Hersonissos is quite busy all year round. Half of the shops and hotels are open throughout the year, in contrast to the rest of Crete where many hotels and restaurants are open only during the tourist season of April-October.

Hersonissos city consists of several small villages and the main tourist destinations of Port Hersonissos, Anissaras and Old Hersonissos. These villages are Koutouloufari, Piscopiano, Anissaras, Potamies, Avdou, Gonies and Kera.

The variety and extent of Hersonissos coastline make it possible for bathers to enjoy an infinite number of different places to swim, all of them lapped by warm, crystal clear water.

The harbor of Hersonissos is famous for its night life as there are many bars, restaurants and taverns next to the beach.
