TransferPlan will transfer you from Heraklion airport to Karteros as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Heraklion International Airport, "Nikos Kazantzakis" is the primary airport on the island of Crete and the country’s second busiest airport after Athens International Airport. It is located about 5 km east of the main city center of Heraklion, near the municipality of Nea Alikarnassos. It is a shared civil/military facility.
The airport took its name after the Cretan native and most famous Heraklion resident Nikos Kazantzakis, who left his mark in Greek history as a novelist and philosopher. Heraklion Airport is Crete's largest and busiest airport, also serving as a connection between Agios Nikolaos, Malia, Hersonissos, Stalida, Elounda and other resort towns. The airport has been operating since the late 30s and its annual number of passengers is approximately 5 million. The airport serves both domestic and international flights.
Heraklion Airport is operating in a renovated and modern space since 1971. The airport complex has been expanded in order to accommodate increased traffic and serve an ever-increasing flight network. Especially during peak season, the airport gets really busy, thus some sporadic delays are expected.
The proximity of the airport to the Heraklion town allows the visitor some spare time to explore or simply wind out and have a nice lunch or drink in the local eateries. Furthermore, around the airport, one can find some excellent hotels and resorts in case an overnight stay is required. The historical site of Knossos Palace and the Archaeological Museum are also located nearby and can be easily reached from the airport with our help. Navigating through the airport can be a daunting task, airport staff will be readily available to assist you.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Karteros as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Karteros is a resort village, 7km east of the Heraklion airport. The bay of Karteros is 3,5km long. On this long bay there are two settlements, Karteros and Amnissos, but because of the rapid tourism development, the two villages are now merged to one.
In this beautiful beachfront, with the golden sand, you will find many hotels, restaurants, coffee shops and beach bars. Unfortunately, Karteros Bay is open to north winds, that’s why the sea is sometimes wavy. There are no rocks here and the waters are shallow, making ideal for families with small children. The less crowded side of the beach is located just next to the Heraklion airport and it is called Florida. In Florida ends up the river of Karteros which during summertime is dry. Around the area, there are two churches, St John and St Nikon, which are built inside a cave. The main beach of Karteros is very well organized and you can find all touristic amenities. The next beach east of Karteros beach is named Xenia, after a local abandoned hotel. East of Xenia beach is the hill of Paleohora. The archaeologists believe that this is where the ancient town of Amnisos was built. The excavations have revealed several buildings, a large temple and a Minoan harbour. To the east, you will find the famous Minoan Lilies villa. This villa is considered to be the resort house of King Minos. East of the villa is the last part of Karteros bay which is called Tobruk. Here you will find a lot of restaurants, hotels and fish taverns. The beachfront is also very well organized with a nice sandy beach.
Karteros is ideal for family holidays or it can be used as a base for exploring Crete. It is a little bit noisy though as the aeroplanes approach the landing airway of Nikos Kazantzakis airport from this part of the island.
