Hersonissos beach, Heraklion Crete

Limanakia beach
Situated some 28 kilometres far from Heraklion at the East and close to Limenas Chersonissou, Limankia are some tiny sandy beaches open to the North and affected by the northern winds.

The beaches are not organised at all; accommodation food and drink can be found at the nearby tourist resort of Limenas Chersonissou. No facilities for swimming or sunbathing are available; here you will enjoy only the natural environment and the crystal clear sea. The small size of the beaches and the lack of facilities are the reason for being quiet enough, as few people choose them; only the one closer to Limenas may be more crowded.

Access from Heraklion is possible by bus, with frequent service, taxi  and rented and private cars and motorbikes.

Open to the Cretan Sea, the beach, however,  is not affected by the northern winds. The beach has a seabed of slippery stones and the water is of unusually low temperature, due to the springs of fresh cold water found in the area.

The beach lacks any kind of facilities, apart from a tavern near the beach, but as it is close to Limenas Chersonissou this is not a big problem.

Access from Heraklion is possible by public bus, taxi and rented and private car and mortorbikes. To get to the beach take the small cemented road leading to the sea, just after the Lychnostatis Museum.
