Situated 8 kilometres far from Heraklion at the West within the open bay of Heraklion, very close to Amoudara, Linoperamata is a well developed tourist settlement with some 160 permanent residents. It is worth seeing the ruins of the Venetian castle at Palaeokastro, at a distance of 3 kilometres far from the settlement, at the North. It is also worth visiting the small villages of Ano Kalessia, within an area full of vineyards, and Kato Kalessia, with the church of Panaghia going back to the 14th century. Both are found at a distance of 11-12 kilometres far from Linoperamata at the South. It is in these villages that takes place the feast of the sultana raisin, organised every year by the Cultural Centre of the villages, in early August. Lodging is plenty in Linoperamata. A lot of hotels of all categories and for all budgets, rooms to let, studios and houses are available for tourists. Swimming and sea sport facilities are offered at the beaches of the settlement as well as at the nearby Amoudara and Palaeokastro. Eating is an easy thing: a wide range of taverns and restaurants, cafes and bars are ready to offer their delicacies. Access from Herkleio is very easy by public buses with frequent service and taxi, as well as by private or rented car and motorbikes.
