Wholeheartedly dedicated to tourism, Hersonissos remains best known for its vibrant nightlife, its bars and clubs attracting partygoers from around the world.
Step off the beaten path and head to The Natural History Museum of Crete and Stalis Beach. Get outdoors at Red Sand Beach (Kokkini Ammos) and Fortress Spinalonga. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Hersonissos: Palace of Faistos (in Sivas), Kazantzakis Museum (in Myrtia) and Heraklion (Heraklion Archaeological Museum, Inspira, & more).
