The modern town of Hersonissos was built on the site of an ancient Roman harbour. Today, it is a bustling port town that enjoys huge popularity as a tourist destination. With ancient ruins, heavenly beaches and a range of activities for kids, the town offers an ideal base for families and couples alike to explore and soak up the Cretan sun.

A string of beautiful coves stretches from the harbour at Hersonissos all the way out to the sandy beach at Cape Sarandaris, a tranquil oasis with shallow waters of vivid blue. Wandering along from cove to cove in the late afternoon sun gives you the perfect chance to take in the views of the chapel of St. George in Sarandaris, as well as a look back at glorious Hersonissos Bay. From the port, the old lighthouse and nearby church of Agia Paraskevi are also within strolling distance. Ancient mosaics can still be found in the ruins of an early Christian basilica on Kastri Hill.

Or if you fancy spending some time in the crystal-clear water, there is always the option to jump in for a swim, as well as a range of other activities such as snorkelling or scuba diving. On land, Hersonissos boasts a modern golf course with breathtaking views, suitable for players of all levels. In the evenings, take a walk along the busy seafront before stopping off at a local restaurant or taverna on the town’s old square for dinner.

Further afield, there’s plenty to see and do in Heraklion, the capital city of Crete. For history enthusiasts, the Palace of Knossos can be found a short distance outside the city. This impressive archaeological site dates as far back as the Minoan civilization and gives visitors the opportunity to see ancient baths and frescoes. There is also a vast collection of Minoan art to be admired at the city’s Archaeological Museum.  For a taste of the island’s history at home, visit the city’s central market, where traditional produce like olive oil, honey and herbs can be found alongside handmade goods made from olive wood. A quick stop for coffee and a snack at a local cafe is a great way to round off a morning spent exploring Heraklion’s colourful market.
Aside from its ancient sites, the city is also famous for its quality restaurants, speciality shops and lively nightlife.

Away from the hustle and bustle, the charming village of Koutouloufari is within walking distance of Hersonissos. With winding cobblestone alleyways, authentic tavernas and picturesque views, this village is a serene spot for an afternoon walk or a romantic meal. Nearby Piskopiano is another traditional hamlet where you can spend a relaxing afternoon, while the pretty coastal villages of Analipsi and Stalida are always well worth a visit for those in search of more stunning beaches and a warm, relaxed ambience.

With a beautiful pool on your doorstep, as well as satellite TV and WiFi, it may be hard to convince younger visitors to leave the villa at all. However, the numerous beaches and attractions along the coastline are made for a family day out.

For a day at the beach, pack a picnic and lots of water and head for one of the many wonderful coves near Hersonissos. The shallow waters of the beach at Cape Sarandaris are perfect for little ones who like to paddle, while older children and teenagers can enjoy an afternoon of water sports or even a boat excursion around the bay.

Many beaches along the coastline provide rental sun loungers and parasols for a much-needed rest after a day spent dipping in and out of the water. Later on, the family can wander into town for an ice cream or a big lunch at a cosy taverna.

Though beach days are at the top of the agenda for many, there are also theme parks and water parks to keep everyone entertained! Visit the lazy river at Acqua Plus for summer fun, or make your way to Water City, located near the mountain village of Anopolis, for more amazing views of the island. At the Palace of Knossos, you can download the mobile app Kids Love Knossos for a fascinating series of audio stories, so the children can listen while you roam around the amazing site. The nearby Labyrinth Park also provides a great opportunity for kids to learn a little more about the ancient history and mythology of the local landscape, while taking part in a variety of exciting interactive activities.

There are also plenty of opportunities for adventure at the Natural History Museum of Crete, where a large dinosaur exhibition awaits. The whole family can marvel at the wonders of the sea floor on a visit to the Crete Aquarium, located around 15km west of Heraklion. Heading outside again, adventure-seekers who wish to explore the rugged coastline from new heights also have a choice of hiking trails to explore in the surrounding areas.

From peaceful beaches to enchanting ancient sites, this popular part of Crete has something for everyone. Visitors young and old will also enjoy a trip to the Lychnostatis Open Air Museum, a fantastic little museum that seeks to immerse visitors in the traditional ways of life on the island, from the chance to look around an old Cretan house to a traditional olive oil press and beeswax workshop.
