The eponymous resort of Limenas Chersonisou, also known as Chersonissos or Hersonissos belongs to the big holiday resort of Chersonisou-Stalis-Malia which is considered to be the liveliest and most popular holiday resort of Crete. Except the big number of various accommodation places, shops, tavernas or music clubs the resort offers its visitors long sandy and pebbly beaches.

In the whole region of Hersonissos, we can count around 10 beaches. Most of them have crystal-clear water and gradual entry into the sea what makes the place an ideal holiday destination for families with children or older people with moving limitations. The Hersonissos Beach is a beautiful, well-organized and equipped sandy beach with many sunbeds and umbrellas available. The beach service as well as the water sports possibilities are a matter of course. Those who like sweet water more than the salty one may like to visit the Star Beach Water Park right at the sea while the fans of fishes will probably appreciate the Aqua World Aquarium not far away from the coast.
