The town of Limin Hersonisou is easily seen from the sea. There is a great number of hotels along the shore east and west of the harbour. There is a small white church on a hill on the west side of the harbour wall.

Facilities: During the tourist season Limin Hersonisou is fully open and water, provisions and fuel are in the town. There are no port authorities here. Hersonisos has doctors, dentists, and pharmacies as well as banks, post, and telephone offices. Few repair facilities are here. Hotel rooms during full season are impossible to find.

Comments: Stern-to or bow-to moorings or anchoring of in the harbour mole provides good shelter in north and north west winds. The harbour is open to the east. There is one light for the harbour. A night approach should not be attempted and care should be taken in the day. There are many submerged reefs around the harbour and along the coast.
