With three days in Heraklion (aka Iraklio), you can discover the area’s 4,000 years of history, savor the local cuisine, wander landscapes like the Samaria Gorge—and even visit another island.
Star Beach Water Park
Themistokleous 3, Chersonisos, Greece
Visitors who want to relax and unwind can chill out as they float along the rolling lazy river; intrepid adventurers can test the laws of gravity on the thrilling Trampolino, four giant slides, and even a bungee jumping platform. Wading pools, water mushrooms, and mini slides mean globetrotters traveling with the younger set will have plenty of kid-friendly options, too. The park also offers daily age-specific kids’ activities, an afternoon foam party, and direct access to the beach.
Things to know before you go
- Entrance to the water park is free of charge, but there are supplementary fees for a number of services and activities. There are a variety of areas fitted out with sun loungers and umbrellas as well as sunbeds, so you can choose between paved areas, a lawn, and a sandy beach.
- Visitors can relax over drinks, snacks, and light meals at snack bars and eateries inside the resort.
- Much of the park is accessible to wheelchairs, but some slides and other activities are not accessible to visitors with limited mobility. Request information at the entrance. There are lifeguards stationed on the beach and near the pools.
How to get there
The Treaty Stone is situated opposite King John’s Castle in the heart of Limerick. Walking to the Treaty Stone from the castle via Thomond Bridge will take about 5 minutes. Buses (302 and 303) depart from Henry Street and stop beside the stone.
When to get there
The water park closes in winter, and in the summer months, it can be very crowded on weekends and holidays. Enjoy the slides before the lines get too long and claim the best spot on the beach or poolside by arriving early.
