TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Anissaras as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Anissaras is located 25 km to the east of Heraklion town.
The area possess a big complex of large hotels and all-inclusive resorts. The hotels face the waterfront and the small sandy beaches with the rocky seabed. The beaches are equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas, free of charge for people staying at the local hotels.
The beaches are naturally picturesque and scenic, nevertheless, the patch is rough and rocky in many places. This makes it a good location for snorkelling but divers must always be cautious of the waves when it's windy. The beach in Analipsi has a smoother surface than the other ones and is a better option for families. From there you can find the main coastal road of Annisaras which leads to a complex of hotels. The road continues south and hotels can be found all the way to Cape Sarandis. Visitors can walk along the coast and find a stretch they like since the beach is separated by the hotels in smaller pieces.
Cape Sarandis stands on the easternmost point of Annisaras, there you can find the small chapel of St. George, which is very candid and offers splendid views of the coves on the western part of Hersonissos. You can reach Sarandis both on foot and by car either by walking eastwards or by the road connecting Anissaras and Hersonissos. In close proximity to the cape, you will find the stone-paved footpath leading to the church.
Anissaras might not stand out compared to other villages of Crete, but it makes a good base for exploring the west side of the island and the surrounding traditional villages.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Heraklion town as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Heraklion boasts the title of the largest urban entity in Crete and is also the administrative capital of the island. Heraklion has an immense historical and cultural heritage, as in close proximity to the city visitors can find the Palace of Knossos, which has served as the centre of Minoan civilisation. Throughout the city, you can also find a number of constructions dating back to the Venetian occupation such as Koules Fortress in the old port.
Heraklion is home to some world class monuments and cultural landmarks. Among the most outstanding man-made structures is the Heraklion Fortress that contains the 'old town'. Originally built by Arab merchants and later on reinforced by Venetians, the Fortress included seven bastions, of which only the Martinego bastion survives the passing of time. Moreover, visitors will be delighted to find one of the gates to the city, named Chanioporta, which is ornate with the winged lion of Saint Marc. Visitors can also pay pilgrimage to the grave of one of Greece's most important writers and Nobel recipient, N. Kazantzakis. The sight that marks his resting place also offers some mesmerising views of the city.
Throughout the city, one can spot statues and monuments commemorating prolific figures that have been important for Greece's course through history and have contributed to Crete's immense cultural heritage. Some of the names include renaissance painter El Greco, Poet Vicenzo Kornaros and Politician Eleftherios Venizelos.
Moreover, the Archaeological museum should be on the top of every visitor's list; a splendid space that boasts a massive collection of ancient artefacts from all over the island and covers more than 5,500 years of history. Special emphasis is given to the spoils of Minoan civilisation, which has been one of the first to spring in the Southern European cost and was almost entirely wiped out by a volcanic eruption and a subsequent tsunami. The museum is home to the most important collection of surviving Minoan antiquities in the world and awaits its visitors to explore the mysteries of this extinguished civilisation.
Nowadays, Heraklion represents a beacon of Greek modernization and has been subjected to an extensive urban sprawl, that gives it a truly unique character. Despite the expansion of concrete residential blocs and the immense traffic, a short walk through the bustling streets and alleys will travel you through thousand years of history and will reveal to you the hip side of Greece with its rich coffee culture and culinary delights that can be found in every corner.
