The village is very pretty and quaint with a rustic feel, locals sit on the village seats at night for a gossip and to watch the world go by. It can get busy with cars and quad bikes at night when people come up from the town to eat at the superior restaurants up there.
The only entertainment we saw were four local fellows who toured around the bars singing. They were great fun!!!
The beach is quite a walk, around 15mins walk. There are little bays and a larger one to the left of the resort looking from land down to the sea.
There is also a water park although we did not go, that is in walking distance.
There are a few ...
small shops catering for the self-catering brigade and a few gift type shops in the villages. But where it excels is the quality of the many restaurants.We recommend Galini in Koutalafari and the first restaurant on the right as you enter the square of Old Hersonnisos village on the corner.Read More
And yes we will definately be going back to this charming friendly quiet little corner of Crete where everyone welcomes you with a smile.
