Written by in , , Comments Off on What to Do in Hersonissos Crete Greece

The village of Hersonissos in Crete, Greece is one of those places you won’t want to miss. While here,  you may notice the perfect blue water, streaming sunlight, and beautiful people. However, there is so much more to do here than just enjoy the scenery or sit at one of its beaches. This village is one of the many places to enjoy on the island, and each of these places has its own character. Here’s a look at some of the things you can do while in Hersonissos:

Star Beach Water Park

Instead of just sit at the beach, why not try something different? The most popular tourist option is the Star Beach Water Park, which kids love because of its activities like giant slides and bungee jumping. You decide whether to explore the beach or to use the pools and rides if that is more your thing. For adults, Star Beach hosts parties as well, some with a live DJ and foam! Star Beach has a variety of restaurants in the area, so there’s no danger of going hungry.

Explore the Labyrinth Theme Park

The Minoan Civilization left its mark on Crete, and Hersonissos is on of those places where you can explore it. In the hills above Hersonissos, you’ll find The Labyrinth Theme Park, which celebrates Crete’s Minoan culture. Spend an hour or two getting lost in the labyrinth itself, and then choose from a variety of other activities: mini-golf, quad bikes, interactive videos, and eating at the café!

Visit the Aquaworld Aquarium

Do you love to learn about marine life? If so, you’ll want to visit Crete’s first aquarium – the Aquaworld Aquarium. Here, you can explore the marine life most commonly found in the area as well as the Reptile Rescue. This is something that will be good for people of all ages, but if you have children this is especially ideal. You can see and learn about a variety of sea life and reptiles, and even feed and touch some of them! Since many of the reptiles have been rescued, a visit to the aquarium also supports a good cause.

Take a Bike Tour of Crete and Hersonissos

Do you want to tour the area but would rather do something a little more active? Consider taking a bicycle tour of the coast of Hersonissos with a guided tour from Cycling Creta. You can choose from Level 1, which is recommended for younger children and those who rarely bike, to Level 4, which is only for serious mountain bikers. The guides will make plenty of stops, allowing you to take photos, eat, and maybe even swim! The tours take around four hours and Cycling Creta offers a shuttle service.

Explore the Nightlife

A multitude of pubs and night clubs light up the bustling town of Hersonissos every evening. Options range from low-key Irish pubs like Shenanigans, to house music-blasting dance clubs like the New York Club or the Palm Beach Club–almost all located within walking distance of each other. Start your nightlife journey by walking along the eastern coast of Hersonissos and then see where the night takes you!

With so many exciting options on Hersonissos, it can be hard to know where to begin! We hope this guide helps you find the activities that are right for you.
