Travel with Children
Numerous kid-friendly activities are concentrated on the northern coast east of Iraklio, in Gournes and Hersonisos and surrounds. You can get as wet and wild as you like at water theme parks, including Water City, Acqua Plus and Star Beach. Or, in Gournes, get in touch with your inner brontosaurus at Dinosauria. Horsy folk can canter about with Arion Stables. For something more cultural but equally fun, the Lychnostatis Open Air Museum will appeal to young minds not so keen on archaeological ruins.
