Along the seafront is a broad pedestrian promenade. There
are lots of beaches around Hersonissos, and those in the
town itself get extraordinarily crowded in summer. You’ll
fid the usual assortment of restaurants, bars, nightclubs
and souvenir shops along the seafront. There’s a small,
romantic port which houses yachts and fishing boats.
100-200m inland, the busy national road runs parallel to
the sea, providing easy access to
Nikolaos. You’ll find a lot of cafés and ships here, too.
Eating in Hersonissos: Prices here are a little higher than average, and a lot of places offer German or English dishes. Fast food is also in evidence here, with McDonalds and other famous chains present – Dutch chain Friet Van Piet chose to open its only Greek branch here! A good, relatively cheap option for Greek food along the waterfront is Taverna Agropolis.
Nightlife in Hersonissos: The nightclubs are concentrated
along the sea in the town centre. There’s also some Irish
pubs and cocktail bars. The party gets going around
midnight, and goes on until 6am most nights in summer.
Boat trips from Hersonissos: Some companies offer daily boat trips from the port of Hersonissos. The most popular trips are those going to the small fishing village of Sissi (about €15), and fishing tours on a glass bottomed boat (about €30)
