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 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.
