Wholeheartedly dedicated to tourism, Hersonissos remains best known for its vibrant nightlife, its bars and clubs attracting partygoers from around the world.
Get out of town with these interesting Hersonissos side-trips: Kazantzakis Museum (in Myrtia), Rethymnon (Old Venetian Harbour of Rethymno, Rethymnon Old Town, &more) and Heraklion (Nerium Oleander, Heraklion Archaeological Museum, &more). And it doesn't end there: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Aquaworld Aquarium & Reptile Rescue Centre, tee off at The Crete Golf Club, head off the coast to Fortress Spinalonga, and meet the residents at Cretaquarium - Thalassocosmos.

Great Island
The largest of the Greek islands, Crete offers travelers more than just sun, sea, and sand. Famed for its warm hospitality, outstanding infrastructure, and contrasting landscapes, the island represents one of the world's richest areas in terms of history and culture. Crete burst onto the world scene over 4,000 years ago, when it served as the center of the Minoan civilization, one of Europe's earliest organized societies. Despite the island's wealth of developed beaches, the traces of the mysterious and enchanting Minoan empire remain Crete's top attraction, drawing visitors fromĀ all over the world. The island capital Heraklion provides an ideal base for exploring a renowned Minoan palace complex, the site of Europe's oldest city.
