A few words about Hersonissos:


Hersonissos (ΧΕΡΣΟΝΗΣΟΣ  in Greek) or Chersonissos  is a town in the north of Crete, on the Mediterranean. This community is about 25 kilometers east of Heraklion and west of Agios Nikolaos. What is usually called Hersonissos is in fact its harbour. It is part of the Heraklion Prefecture.

Hersonissos is oriented towards tourism. At the entrance of it there are small sport fields on which there is also a lot to do for children. In the main street there are lots of souvenir shops, as well as other shops and restaurants, some of which are near the sea. Night life is also important, and feature discos. One can take a sight-seeing train that runs down the main street along the sea, and provides access to the surroundings of Hersonissos.

People who like to rest and sun bathe on their holidays can have a good time at Hersonissos, for it has a beautiful beach, but of course excursions to other places on the island can be made from here as well, or even to other islands.

Like many communities on Crete, the local economy is not only based on tourism, but also on agriculture. In the fall, when most of the tourists have left, many people normally employed in the tourism industry earn money helping with the harvest.
