About Hersonissos, Crete

An area of great touristic development, Hersonissos is busy during the summer months with visitors enjoying the beaches, restaurants and the more general holiday vibe.  In the town of Hersonissos, you can find pretty much any kind of shop, restaurant or bar you are looking for. Most of the shops run along the main road through the town while the road running along the beach is predominantly pedestrian in the evenings. This stretch also leads to the Hersonissos port with its picturesque little church and a mixture of commercial and fishing boats.

It is said that the best beaches in Hersonissos are those found just on the outskirts and called ‘Limanakia, which means ‘little ports’. Essentially, they are small bays rather than long stretches of beach. Of course, other larger beaches can be found all along the coastline of the town, some more barren and others with cafes and hotels providing services. For those looking for beach, swimming pool and other fun activities, Star Beach is the place to visit with bungee jumping, foam parties and kart car racing.

For those interested in history and local culture, the Lychnostatis folklore museum is a ‘must’. The museum comprises of many separate buildings which exhibit various workshops (ceramic, bees wax etc), a distillery for raki and olive oil press among other features, a library and theatre, a traditional farmer’s house and the gardens filled with local herbs and fruit trees.

If you are feeling a little more adventurous, nearby villages such as Koutouloufari and Piskopiano offer beautiful views and a more traditional atmosphere and Malia town which is approx. a 10min drive from Hersonissos can add some variety to your holiday. All these places and many more can be easily reached when you have a car booked with Apex Rent a Car service – reliable and hassle-free service wherever you are on Crete at competitive prices.
