During the summer times, Hersonissos tends to be packed with young tourists, coming from all around the world to enjoy a carefree and exciting vacation.
Over the course of time Hersonissos transpassed its humble origins and from a small fishing village, it eloped into a small town and a popular tourist resort. Yet, despite its rapid development natural beauty and local authenticity can still be found in and around the area. On the west side of the coastal road, 1km west of the harbour lies the Cape of Sarandis. There you can find the picturesque chapel of St. George, which definitely deserves some of your time and some space in your camera memo.
East of the coves you will find the Hill of Kastri. On your way up to the hill, you should not miss the ruins of the old basilica of Agia Paraskevi, boasting some beautiful mosaics. The east side of the picturesque chapel is built within a rock and it offers mesmerising views of the scenic port of Hersonissos.
Hersonissos, despite its reputation as a party hotspot, it is also perfectly enjoyable for children. Families can spend time in the two Water Parks, visit the Hersonissos Aquarium or the massive CretAquarium, do a trip on the 'happy train' or let them enjoy themselves in one of the play areas provided by the local restaurants.
Hersonissos has the best tourism infrastructure in Crete and is home to high-end hotels and a beautiful coast. It combines a vibrant and cosmopolitan environment, with a rich history, culture and natural beauty.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Heraklion town as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Heraklion boasts the title of the largest urban entity in Crete and is also the administrative capital of the island. Heraklion has an immense historical and cultural heritage, as in close proximity to the city visitors can find the Palace of Knossos, which has served as the centre of Minoan civilisation. Throughout the city, you can also find a number of constructions dating back to the Venetian occupation such as Koules Fortress in the old port.
Heraklion is home to some world class monuments and cultural landmarks. Among the most outstanding man-made structures is the Heraklion Fortress that contains the 'old town'. Originally built by Arab merchants and later on reinforced by Venetians, the Fortress included seven bastions, of which only the Martinego bastion survives the passing of time. Moreover, visitors will be delighted to find one of the gates to the city, named Chanioporta, which is ornate with the winged lion of Saint Marc. Visitors can also pay pilgrimage to the grave of one of Greece's most important writers and Nobel recipient, N. Kazantzakis. The sight that marks his resting place also offers some mesmerising views of the city.
Throughout the city, one can spot statues and monuments commemorating prolific figures that have been important for Greece's course through history and have contributed to Crete's immense cultural heritage. Some of the names include renaissance painter El Greco, Poet Vicenzo Kornaros and Politician Eleftherios Venizelos.
Moreover, the Archaeological museum should be on the top of every visitor's list; a splendid space that boasts a massive collection of ancient artefacts from all over the island and covers more than 5,500 years of history. Special emphasis is given to the spoils of Minoan civilisation, which has been one of the first to spring in the Southern European cost and was almost entirely wiped out by a volcanic eruption and a subsequent tsunami. The museum is home to the most important collection of surviving Minoan antiquities in the world and awaits its visitors to explore the mysteries of this extinguished civilisation.
Nowadays, Heraklion represents a beacon of Greek modernization and has been subjected to an extensive urban sprawl, that gives it a truly unique character. Despite the expansion of concrete residential blocs and the immense traffic, a short walk through the bustling streets and alleys will travel you through thousand years of history and will reveal to you the hip side of Greece with its rich coffee culture and culinary delights that can be found in every corner.
