Anissaras (the older locals call it Agisaras) is a tourist resort with big hotels, very close to Hersonissos and 26km from Heraklion city.

Small sandy beaches with beach umbrellas and chaise longues (provided by the hotels) can be seen one after the other. The sea bottom is rocky, so don't forget to bring your mask and snorkels with you in order to explore it.

For a bite to eat, head to one of the tavernas in Hersonissos.
