Hersonissos ©
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: Agios Nikolaos (Lake Voulismeni & Panagias Keras Church), Margarites Gorge (in Margarites) and Elounda (Ieros Naos Agios Konstandinou kai Elenis & Fortress Spinalonga). There's lots more to do: observe the fascinating underwater world at Aquaworld Aquarium & Reptile Rescue Centre, get a new perspective on nature at The Natural History Museum of Crete, get engrossed in the history at Historical and Folklore Museum of Rethymno, and wander the streets of Rethymnon Old Town.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Hersonissos trip planning app.

Surat Thani, Thailand to Hersonissos is an approximately 26-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone difference moving from Indochina Time (ICT) to Eastern European Standard Time (EET) is minus 5 hours. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Surat Thani in May: high temperatures in Hersonissos hover around °C and lows are around °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
