Wholeheartedly dedicated to tourism, Hersonissos remains best known for its vibrant nightlife, its bars and clubs attracting partygoers from around the world.
Venture out of the city with trips to Heraklion Archaeological Museum (in Heraklion), Fortress Spinalonga (in Elounda) and Rethymnon (Symbol of Rethymnon City, Rethymnon Old Town, & more). Spend a day of island exploring on the 10th (Sat) at Chrissi Island. There's still lots to do: make a splash at Star Beach, observe the fascinating underwater world at Cretaquarium - Thalassocosmos, tee off at The Crete Golf Club, and steep yourself in history at The Palace of Knossos.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Hersonissos trip simple and quick.

October in Hersonissos sees daily highs of 26°C and lows of 17°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
