Development land in East Crete. 50.000m² land for sale, just a 300m walk away from the Cretan Sea, close to an established big hotel, and 6km from the other well-known tourist resort of Hersonissos…
Hersonissos is 26 kilometres east of Heraklion, between Anissaras and Stalis.
Hersonissos has developed due to tourism and, in just a few decades, has grown into the largest tourist resort in Crete.
Hersonissos has about 3,000 permanent inhabitants (2,981 in the 2001 census), but this number increases exponentially each summer, with the thousands of seasonal workers in tourism, and of course the hundreds of thousands of tourists who come to Hersonissos on holiday.
Hersonissos means fun and mass tourism, lovely but busy beaches, a modern town with dozens of shops selling tourist goods, clothes and jewellery, restaurants offering all kinds of food, cafeterias, bars and nightclubs to suit every taste.
Hersonissos also means conference tourism in the large luxury hotels, the only golf course in Crete, and all-inclusive holidays for tourists of all ages who are mostly entertained in their hotel and rarely leave it to get to know the beautiful sights of Crete. This is a shame, because Hersonissos is ideally placed for easy travel across the whole island, either by rented car or by bus.
