The Kastri beach of the Creta Maris Beach Resort in Hersonissos, on the island of Crete, has been awarded with the “Blue Flag” for the sixth consecutive year.
A world-renowned voluntary eco-label, Blue Flag is awarded to beaches, marinas, and sustainable boating tourism operators.

‘It is the ideal summer destination for the local community and Creta Maris’ guests,” Vlassiadis underlined.
