Restaurants, bars and tavernas provide relaxing venues for dining and drinking under the stars, while larger hotels provide their own evening entertainment.
The island has many interesting archaeological sites and towns with Ottoman and Venetian architecture as well as traditional villages that appear barely touched by tourism. Tourist attractions include the Acquaplus Water Park. Set in beautiful gardens, it offers fun and excitement for all the family. If you are feeling energetic there is a seven kilometre walk through the Aposelemis Gorge where the scenery is stunning. There is also a golf course in the vicinity.
Analipsi nightlife is as relaxed as it is by day, reflecting the resort's popularity with families and couples. There are many tavernas and bars where you can enjoy an evening under the stars, but there isn't a club in sight. Those seeking livelier evenings can take a taxi to neighbouring Hersonissos where its numerous bars and clubs party until dawn.
Analipsi shopping is fairly limited with mini-markets for essentials and gifts and souvenirs. Ardent shoppers need not worry as five minutes along the road is Hersonissos where there are enough shops and boutiques to satisfy most shoppers. Since many of the shops have air conditioning they also offer respite from the heat. There are some excellent leather shops in Hersonissos containing high quality goods at bargain prices. There are the usual numbers of gift and souvenir shops where you can purchase your holiday mementoes as well as some rather fancy jewellers. Among the local crafts are ceramics, leather goods and embroidered linens, all of which make very popular gifts.
Analipsi has restaurants and tavernas serving a diverse cuisine, including international fare, that caters for all tastes. Eating in Greece is something to be enjoyed in a leisurely fashion so don’t expect quick service. Instead sit back and enjoy the aromas of your meal being freshly cooked while sipping a glass of your favourite beverage. The local cuisine relies heavily on fish which is fresh from the morning catch and cooked simply. Moussaka is another firm favourite. The Greek ‘Mezedes’, the equivalent of the Spanish ‘Tapas’, makes an ideal lunch. Children are warmly welcomed in restaurants and their tastes and portion size are usually accommodated.
