How to Get to Aquaworld

By Bus:  From either direction, ask for bus stop number 20. This will put you within a minute's walk of Aquaworld. For final directions, follow the map and read "On Foot" below.

By Taxi:  Most taxi drivers know where Aquaworld is nowadays, but to be sure tell them that it is in Hersonissos, behind the Spar (Halkiathaki) Supermarket. This last translates to "piso apo to supermarket Halkiathaki" for those who wish to show off their proficiency in Greek.

On Foot:  For those already in Hersonissos, or who find themselves a little confused, the best bet is to find the petrol station (Greek: venzinathiko) - there's only one in town! With your back to the pumps and facing the main road, turn to your left. Walk on about 100m until you reach the Spar supermarket. Turn left at the corner and carry on about 50m up this road and we're there, again on the left.
