Anissaras is a hilly region located west of Hersonissos. Thanks to its beautiful surroundings, the resort town has rapidly evolved over the past fifteen years. Anissaras lies along the Cretan coastline and stretches all the way from Malia to Kokkini Hani. Apart from the majestic blue of the sea, visitors can also enjoy numerous man-made beaches to soak in the golden rays of the sun.
To reach Anissaras from Heraklion visitors can take a bus to Hersonissos. Public buses ferry guests from Heraklion International Airport east of the main city to the blissful beaches at the Anissaras. The old national road is usually the quickest route to take when heading for a beach holiday at Anissaras. The best time to explore this scenic region is either April to June or September to October for warm, sunny days. Anissaras is in the GMT+2 time zone.
While most of the Anissara coast is made up of pebble beaches, there are a few sandy beaches to visit in the area. An Italian resort called Club Blu is commonly frequented by holiday-makers looking to have a peaceful moment next to the ocean. A nudist beach is also included in the Anissaras holidays for those who enjoy nude sunbathing. Piskopiano traditional villages are ideal for discovering authentic Greek culture, while exploring the region's deep historical roots. The archeological site of Malia is another destination rich in history for those who want to learn about the Minoan civilization. For more historical background on the region, a visit to the Lychnostatis Museum illuminates rich Cretan traditions. Eating fresh fish and Greek specialties along the coast are the perfect way to finish off a package holiday to this idyllic coastal resort.
