Hersonissos is well known as one of Crete's liveliest resorts, and there is a wide range of tavernas, shops, cafes, discos and other tourist amenities. Its sand and shingle beach offers a wide variety of water sports. Nearby on the hillside the villages of Koutouloufari and Piskopiano are quieter and offer visitors a much more relaxed and lower key style of holiday. The neighbouring coastal resort of Stalis has beautiful sandy beaches and a rather laid back atmosphere. There is a wide choice of nightlife in Heronissos and Stalis.
