It can get crowded on weekends with visitors from Apollonia and Kamares as well as people on sailboats and yachts. Cheronissos means peninsula, and derives etymologically from hersos, meaning untitled land, and nessos, meaning island.
Cheronissos has a small fishing harbour. It’s also a great place to try fresh fish. Take are. Fish is not cheap in Greece! Always ask what’s fresh, or ask to go and see the fish in the kitchen.
