TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Elafonisi as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Elafonisi is located 76km west of Chania and 5km south of Chrysoskalitisa Monastery, in the southwestern-most tip of Crete. Elafonisi is such a wonderful and beautiful place that even if you are there, standing at the beach, you cannot believe its unique beauty.
Elafonisi consists of a small islet and a lot of beaches with white and pink sand, so astonishing that you feel like they jumped from a well-montaged photo. The Island is a protected nature reserve and it is not allowed to take any plants, shells or even sand. You can get to the islet on foot because the waters are shallow, sometimes without even getting your toes wet, and therefore is ideal for families with small children, although it gets very busy during summertime. It is named after the word "Elafi", which means deer in Greek because people years ago discovered that you can get easily to the islet on foot like a deer that walked to it.
The island is full of sandbanks with sea daffodils and junipers. The rare loggerhead sea turtle and several rarer animals and plants find shelter on the island. Exotic beaches with white sand and turquoise water, reminding of the Caribbean, are formed on either side of the peninsula. Some beach bars work next to the beach and you can also find umbrellas and sunbeds. The sand is pinkish in many places, taking its colour from millions of crushed shells. Near the breaking point of the peninsula, the sea water does not exceed 1m in depth, creating a small lagoon.
Its beauty will get you astonished and as many visitors say, it feels like a lost paradise on earth.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Heraklion Port as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Heraklion port is situated at the center of Heraklion Prefecture’s northern coast and adjacent to island’s capital.
The modern Heraklion port was firstly established in the 20th century and expanded eastwards of its older predecessor, the 700-year-old Venetian port that now serves as an attraction and a place of pleasure. Heraklion port is the second largest and busiest harbour in Greece after Piraeus.
The port is conveniently located along the middle part of the Cretan highway that serves the northern part of the island. The highway offers an easy getaway to the towns of Agios Nikolaos, Sitia, Kissamos, Rethymnon, Chania and Heraklion. It is busy all-year-round with an approximate number of 2 million visitors annually. The port services very popular routes such as Piraeus-Athens, Thessaloniki and a number of Aegean islands. Itineraries are regular and for other major ports, ships depart daily.
The Harbour hosts visitors for both touristic purposes and commercial activities. It possesses an array of facilities for the convenience of all travellers. In close proximity to the port, one can find in abundance shops, cafes and restaurants within a short walking distance.
The port is an 'umbrella' term covering both the new Heraklion Ferry Port and the old Venetian Harbour. The 'Castello a Mare' more widely known as Koules is a significant walled structure marking the entrance to the old Venetian port. The fortress dates back to the 16th century and is presumed that Cretan rebels were tortured in its underground chambers by mercenaries of the Ottoman Empire during the times of Crete's occupation. The Heraklion old town is located nearby, thus after a visit to the Fortress travellers can enjoy a walk through the vibrant streets of the city or taste some delicacies prepared by the friendly and hospitable locals.
