Wholeheartedly dedicated to tourism, Hersonissos remains best known for its vibrant nightlife, its bars and clubs attracting partygoers from around the world.
Change things up with these side-trips from Hersonissos: Heraklion (Domaine Paterianakis- Κτήμα Πατεριανάκη, The Natural History Museum of Crete, & more) and Matala beach (in Matala). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 4th (Sat) at Star Beach. There's lots more to do: meet the residents at Aquaworld Aquarium & Reptile Rescue Centre, take in the waterfront activity at Old Venetian Harbor, explore the ancient world of Malia Minoan Palace, and steep yourself in history at The Palace of Knossos.
