Your guide to Koutouloufari holidays
Knossos, named as Europes oldest city, is just 37 minutes away from Koutouloufari. Here you can visit the historical palace and archaeological site which was once residence to the mythological King Minos. Explore these impressive ruins which date back to around 6000 B.C. This attraction is ideal for anyone interested in ancient history.
Labyrinth Park is an exciting and adventurous place to go if you have young children. Here they are taken on an interactive journey which teaches them all about the history of Crete and its mythological creatures. The puzzle-solving ‘Escape Atlantis’ gives players just 50 minutes to escape before you are lost in the ruins forever. Ride an electric quad bike or have a go in the brand new laser maze which first opened to guests in May 2021.
The closest beach lies less than a mile down the hill in Hersonissos and here you will find beaches within a beach! One of the most popular is Star Beach which is located near a water park, perfect for families holidaying with children.
There are plenty of water activities to divulge in including paragliding, bungee jumping and jet skiing. You can even take a trip on a banana boat or shoot into the sea off a giant slide. Hersonissos has plenty of lively beach bars to stop off for a cold drink or a bite to eat in between paddling in the warm turquoise waters.
If you’re looking for somewhere a bit quieter, you can always travel to Anissaris to the west or Stalis to the east of Hersonissos. While these long stretches of gorgeous golden sand may be quieter, they are a great spot to lie back on a lounger and read a book.
