The beaches of the Port of Hersonissos
Starting from the east, there is the sandy beach "Drepanos" of the hotel "NANA", which has received the "blue flag" award for its clean waters.
Next to it, there is a smaller sandy beach with cool waters due to the existence of spring waters in the area.
A bit further to the west, in the region of the museum "Lychnostatis", there are some small pebble beaches.
The next beach is the one of the "Star Beach" water park.
In the region of the hotel Silva Maris there are many small beaches awarded with the "blue flag".
A bit further to the east, there is the beach east from the portside, right in front the bar "New York".
The central and largest beach of Hersonissos extends from the hotel Creta Maris and features water sports clubs.
A bit further to the east there is a network of sandy beaches, known as "limanakia" (which means "the small ports").
The nudist beach follows, partly sandy and partly covered by rocks.
A bit further to the west, in the region of the church "Aghios Georgios", there are three beaches awarded with the "blue flag": the beach of the hotel "Annabelle village", the beach of the hotel "Knossos Royal village" and the beach of the hotels "Royal Mare village" and "Cretan village".
