What to Know Before Visiting Hersonissos

Apartments and hotels in Hersonissos from Crete Island

Hersonissos (Limenas Chersonisou), renowned as a vibrant tourist hotspot in Crete, captivates visitors with its stunning beaches, remarkable landscapes, and a diverse range of facilities catering to all tastes and ages. Alongside its reputation as a lively gathering place for youthful crowds, much like Malia, Hersonissos also houses three quaint, traditional villages – Piskopiano, Koutouloufari, and Old Hersonissos. These locales provide a snapshot of Crete’s authentic lifestyle.

A quintessential seaside holiday resort, Hersonissos boasts a wealth of beautiful beaches, delectable eateries, an assortment of shops, children’s video game arcades, and a thriving nightlife.

Indeed, if you’re seeking a vacation packed with entertainment, and non-stop activities each evening, Hersonissos is one of Crete’s top choices. From bustling discos and beach bars to Irish pubs, cozy cafes, and elusive speakeasy venues, the nightlife caters to a range of preferences.

A mere stone’s throw from Hersonissos, a plethora of beautiful beaches awaits exploration, with the Sarandari Coves being a particular highlight near the Hersonissos port. Their defining feature is the exceptionally clear, and at times shallow, sea, making it a safe playground for younger explorers.

Moreover, thanks to Cape Sarandaris, the coves are shielded from the northern winds, ensuring a calm, wave-free beach experience. A lineup of restaurants and bars dot the coast, perfect for a relaxed beach day without the need for a packed lunch.

For a tranquil escape close to Hersonissos’ hub, consider a stroll through the charming village of Koutouloufari. Traditional eateries, enchanting alleys, and picturesque views provide an idyllic backdrop for an afternoon walk or a sampling of local drinks and delectable Cretan cuisine.

Koutouloufari is also reputed for its stunning hotels offering panoramic views of Hersonissos Bay. It’s an ideal place to stay if you desire proximity to the sea, yet wish to avoid the town centre’s hustle and bustle.

Not far from Koutouloufari lies another treasure, Piskopiano, easily reachable by car. This traditional hamlet, crowned with a nineteenth-century church dedicated to the Holy Virgin, is another must-visit spot in Crete. Be sure to explore its main square.
