The Municipality of Hersonissos is an area that truly has something to keep everyone happy! Beaches, history, sports, nightlife and tradition. Malia town offers a small maze of traditional streets in the old village to explore, with hidden gems in terms of taverns, bars and shops. As one walks towards the lush sandy beaches of the area, the nightlife scene emerges with chic cocktail bars and the occasional nightclub for those wanting to catch the next sunrise. From a historical aspect, Malia’s many little churches offer insight into recent history while the famous Minoan Palace of Sarpidon, is one of the most important archaeological sites in Crete and home to the ‘bee’ pendant. Stalis has almost joined its borders with Malia but is the more calming sibling. A long stretch of shops, restaurants and bars running alongside the beachfront offer the perfect setting for those evening strolls.
Hersonissos is home to the Lychnostatis museum for those interested in taking a peak into local culture and the traditional lifestyle. In the vicinity, one can also find extreme sports available and large rave parties organised at different times throughout the summer season. The majority of Hersonissos town is modern with a wide variety of shops all along the long stretch of the main road. Walking along the seafront can be preferable and at the end, one finds the port with a minuscule white church overlooking the fishing boats. During Greek Orthodox Easter is a great time to see the port come to life with locals attending to pay their respects. The more traditional feel of a village can be found just above Hersonissos, in Piskopiano and Koutouloufari villages. These are both just a short – yet, uphill – walk from the main street.

If you are looking for a smaller village and a more traditional vibe, the two closest places to drive and pay a visit to are Krasi and Mohos. Mohos has a spacious square surrounded by restaurants and cafes, overlooked upon by the village’s main (and very large) church. Wonder around the streets and don’t be surprised if some of the villagers invite you in to offer you a drink or show you what they are up to. This is most common during certain activities such as the wine/raki making period, when they are harvesting the olives and so on. Krasi village, at an altitude of 600m above sea level, is a much smaller village and home to an ancient plane tree which is estimated to be over 2000 years old. During the winter, the restaurants offer a cosy refuge from the cold and snow while in the summer months, a cool breeze offers great relief from the over-imposing sun. Many famous writers and philosophers such as Kazantzakis himself, have been known to rest in the little square between the running waters of Megali Vryssi and the giant plane tree.
