TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Chania Port in Souda as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Souda is located 6.5 km east of the town of Chania on the road to Rethymnon. The town stretches along the southern coast of the Gulf of Souda. Suda is the largest natural harbour in the Mediterranean and it is formed by the main body of Crete and the Cape Meleha, called also Akrotiri.
The geophysical location and positioning of Souda, alongside with the size and suitable depth, makes it a safe harbour during the whole year. Its location in the centre of the eastern Mediterranean on the ancient sea routes gives a special strategic importance, accordingly causing the strong interest from ancient times until today. Souda Bay is one of the strategically important anchors of NATO in the Mediterranean. The port occupies the entire southwestern part of the bay and offers a modern commercial and passenger port and the main ferry link of west Crete with Piraeus.
Suda Bay has always been a large natural harbour and a strategic point of the eastern Mediterranean Sea through time for both commercial and military purposes. Consequently, most of the attractions located near Souda Bay, are directly related to the natural harbour. This port is much bigger than needed for ferries, so you won’t have any delays or get overcrowded.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Malia as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Malia is a coastal town and a former municipality in the northeast corner of the Heraklion regional unit. It lies 35 kilometres east of Heraklion, the Cretan capital city.
Malia is considered the 'Party Mecca' of Crete or the Cretan equivalent of Koh Phangan and Magaluf. In the area, one can find flocks of British tourists going there for their gap year, stag and hen parties or simply go there to rock it. Travelling to Malia is advised against as its cultural impact and natural beauty is minimal and other than crazy nightlife has not much to offer.
Malia is mostly ideal for the young, the party-goers, and the heavy drinkers. Every second place in Malia seems to be a facility dedicated to night-time entertainment. Standard establishments such as hotels and restaurants can be found all around. Also, if you would like to see a place retaining some of its authenticity, you could visit an old village located south of the main coastal road.
The two main roads of Malia are conjoined in the centre of the town, in front of the Church of Saint Nektarios. One of the roads is turned into a pedestrian zone and is considered the 'party lane' of Malia, where young tourists patron one of the many bars and clubs until the early hours of the morning. The second road crosses vertically the pedestrian zone and is full of cafes, shops, supermarkets and banks. This road tends to be calmer as well.
Malia is also home to the third largest Minoan palace in Crete. The ancient Palace of Malia belonged to legendary King Sarpedon, who according to the myth he was the son of Zeus and goddess Europa and brother of King Minos. Excavations around the area have also brought to the surface many burial places full of treasures and golden ornaments. One of the most famous discoveries is the jewel decorated with bees, that is exhibited in the archaeological museum of Heraklion. Unfortunately, many of the tombs were looted prior to excavation from the archaeologists and the number and nature of objects lost remain unknown to this day.
Fifteen minutes ride north from Malia is the traditional village of Krasi. The route will take you across a gorge lined with carob and oak trees. Krasi's most famous attraction is the huge plane tree, which cannot be circled even by ten people lined up. In the central village, you can have a coffee or eat in one of the traditional taverns and sample the local delicacies which are renowned for their quality all over Crete. You can conclude your visit by taking a walk along the alleyways and narrow streets of the village.
