Limenas Hersonissou (famous Hersonissos), 27km east of the Cretan capital, is one of the most popular choices among the younger crowd and among visitors on the island. In this tourist resort you will find hotels, restaurants, tavernas, bars and, of course, beach bars.
Limanakia Hersonissos consist of consecutive bays, from Cape Sarandaris all the way to Hersonissos port. There are many options for enjoying a refreshing swim, as there are beaches with steep rocks, pebbles, or sand and turquoise, crystal clear waters.
In some beaches you will find beach umbrellas and beach bars, while others (such as the nudist one) are still intact regardless of the tourism development.
