Summer Holidays to Hersonissos
Hersonissos Sun Holidays Review and Guide
People who like to sunbathe and rest will enjoy a summer holiday to Hersonissos. This little town hides its port under an acropolis that used to be home to a roman era Christian basilica and the economy now relies more on tourists than on fish. Visitors are no longer prey to pirates and potential conquerors but friendly Cretans wanting to share a glass of ouzo or two.
Beach lovers are spoilt on a Hersonissos summer holiday with a choice of three excellent sandy stretches as well a great variety of water sports and if these aren’t wet enough for you and the kids you can always scream your heads off on the Kamikaze Run at Star Beach Waterpark. Only the bravest people on a Hersonissos summer holiday will attempt the Bungee Tower.
Traditional Crete is firmly in evidence among the eateries of the waterfront where tavernas are interspersed with modern bars and restaurants that provide your nightly Hersonissos summer holiday entertainment.
Both days and nights can be pretty lively due to the size of the town, its beaches and numerous attractions but it’s possible to escape the hustle and bustle of a Hersonissos summer holiday by heading into the peaceful hills to enjoy gorgeously fresh mountain air and stunning views or by wandering around some of the quieter villages scattered in the immediate vicinity.
A summer holiday to Hersonissos has mass appeal to all ages and is a delightful mix of the old and the new delivered with a flair that is distinctively Crete in flavour.
