Two of the well known tourist resorts of Heraklion that attract thousands of visitors.

Hersonisos & Malia are very popular tourist resorts, which are situated over well-organized sandy beaches and offer besides any possible facilities, the ability to party throughout the day and night.

Heading east from Heraklion, on the National Road to Agios Nikolaos, Limin Hersonisos is a tourist resort with extended tourist development. Here the Stalis Beach attracted the attention of many businessmen who saw the opportunity to develop a tourist resort. Large and luxurious hotels, restaurants with international and local cuisine, many bars and also water parks exist in the area, selected by a large number of tourists. The sea however can be rough when windy. The well-organized beach is sandy and the waters are shallow and warm during summer. All possible water sports are available.
Further to the east and still on the main National Road, you reach another tourist resort, Malia. Here the beach is also sandy and remains one of the areas that young people prefer to spend their holiday due to the countless bars and the loud music. There are 6 km of a well-organised sandy beach, so there is enough space for everyone to enjoy the sun and the sea. For a more quiet option, just drive a little to the east towards Potamos beach.
