About the Location
Paradise Island Villas are situated in the coastal town of Anissaras, just 2km from the cosmopolitan town of Hersonissos and 23km from Heraklion’s airport.
Starting from the west side of the coastal road of the area, you’ll come upon the Cape of Sarantari with the church of Agios Georgios, which is worth visiting. From there, wander through the continuous bays of Hersonissos and Limanakia, with their lacy beaches, cafes, and restaurants. East of Limanakia you will find the Kastri hill, on which ruins of an early Christian basilica with several mosaics have been found. A very good opportunity for a leisurely walk, is the picturesque Church of Agia Paraskevi, part of which is built into the rock. From there, the view of the whole port of Hersonissos and the emblematic lighthouse will leave you in awe.
