Awesome Anissaras holidays 2020

Anissaras is a beautiful, hilly cape located next to the big, buzzing resort of Hersonissos. It is dotted with lots of hotels, including lots of luxurious, all-inclusive options, which provide peace, seclusion and relaxation just a few minutes’ drive from the bars and clubs of Hersonissos. It’s a great choice if you want to enjoy a peaceful holiday in the sun, with access to great shopping and nightlife right on the doorstep. This stunning, craggy coastline is dotted with tiny beaches and coves, most with good facilities such as parasols and sun loungers for rent despite their diminutive size. There are lots of wonderful excursions nearby, from the perfectly preserved villages of the Lassithi Plateau to the spectacular archaeological site of Knossos and the vibrant, modern capital of Heraklion.

One of the loveliest beaches is Sarandaris Cape beach, which is accessed via a steep staircase down the cliff, and has lots of facilities, including sun loungers and parasols for rent. Beyond it is a naturist beach, one of few to be found on the north coast of Crete. The best beach for families is Sarandaris, which has golden sand, shallow waters, sun beds for rent and a small beach bar. Giofyri is one of the most popular beaches with locals, thanks to its white sands and good facilities.
