Who books Hersonissos at his local travel agency might however find himself or herself at Anissaras. That is another tiny peninsula by the northern tip of this section of the coast, which means North of the port peninsula where the church of Sta. Paraskevi is standing.
There, some 3 kilometers North-West of Limenas Hersonisou there are many large new hotels, because on the north side of this small peninsula there is a very long sandy beach. And from there you can also watch the charter airplanes very well which come to land at the airport of Heraklion.
There are more big new hotels above the coast in the neighbourhood of the tiny villages of Piskopiano
, and further on eastward until short before Stalida
for details), and all of them are listed in the tour operators' catalogues under Hersonissos
. Distances to the beach and to Limenas Hersonisou can easily be several kilometers.
In case that you do not intend to spend your holidays in "Hersonissos" only by your hotel swimming pool, it will be a good idea to hire a rental car
e.g. at Eurocars Rent-a-Car
