Located just 25 km east of Heraklion, Hersonissos is one of Crete's most popular holiday destinations. It's one of the liveliest places on the island, with restaurants, bars and clubs in the centre of the town and along the waterfront. But what makes Hersonissos so popular is its three sandy long beaches with sunbeds and upbeat beach bars. Hersonissos is your place to be if you are a fan of watersports; parasailing, jet-skiing, snorkelling, skiing, windsurfing and waterparks for sun, sea and adventure experiences.
