Analipsis is roughly 20 kilometres east of Heraklion, shortly after Gouves and before Hersonissos. It is also known as Analipsis Hersonissou, as it is very close to the seaside resort of Hersonissos.
Analipsis is built along a long road, running over a kilometre from the old Heraklion – Agios Nikolaos National Road down to the beach.
Analipsis differs from the neighbouring seaside resorts in that tourist development began much later here. analipsis creteThis gives you the impression, on entering Analipsis, that you are in a verdant Cretan village with houses and pretty gardens alternating with fields and olive groves.
On reaching the beach of Analipsis, the first thing you see is the tiny church with the waves almost lapping at its foot. It is a very picturesque church and every tourist who passes through Analipsis stops here for a commemorative photo.
East of the church stretches the main beach of Analipsis, a large sandy beach with umbrellas and loungers
West of the church the coast is rocky. Few people go swimming there, unless they want to enjoy the peace and quiet or a pleasant walk under the tamarisk trees. If you like fishing from the shore, the rocks are the best place for your sport.At the end of the road is yet another sandy beach, at the mouth of the River Aposelemis, with a few ducks waddling about and attracting the attention of visitors.
Also ten minutes from here, that is six kilometers there is the “Thalassocosmos” one of the greatest aquarium.
