Located just 25 km east of Heraklion and the international airport, Hersonissos is one of Crete's most popular summer 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. 

What makes Hersonissos so popular is its three long sandy beaches with upbeat beach bars and sun loungers and umbrellas.

Hersonissos is the perfect place for watersports – there's parasailing, jet skiing, snorkelling, skiing and windsurfing, and there's even a waterpark. It's the perfect sun, sand and sea destination.
