TransferPlan will transfer you from Heraklion airport to Kissamos - Kastellion 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 Kissamos as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Kissamos is a town and municipality in the west of the island of Crete and part of the Chania regional unit. The city of Kissamos is also known as Kastelli Kissamou and often known simply as Kastelli after the Venetian castle that was there.
Visitors to Kissamos can experience the immense cultural heritage and immerse themselves in the local lifestyle. The best season for this purpose is in the Summer where an array of cultural events and festivals take place. The region is also a haven for alternative backpackers, nature lovers and those interested in eco-tourism.
The town also provides all essential facilities to make your visit as comfortable as possible. There you can find bank branches and ATMs, a post office, internet cafes, health centres, supermarkets, restaurants and bars. The waterfront is also lined with tavernas, cafes and bars open at flexible hours. Kissamos harbour is also well-connected with the ports of Kithira, Peloponnese and Piraeus, where ships depart daily along these routes. There are also daily cruises to Gramvousa and Balos, two of the most beautiful and remote islets in Crete.
From the centre of Kissamos town, 2 km away lies a scenic fishing port. From there visitors can spot the little 10th-century church of St. John Damiali built in a rocky hillside and opposite a tunnel leading to Damiali beach, an enchanting pebble cove with crystal-clear, emerald water.
One should not miss the sandy beach of Falassarna located 16 km west of Kastelli. The beach is a very popular destination renowned for its crystal-clear waters. Yet, despite its popularity, only a few tavernas and small hotels retain their business at Falassarna. There you can also find the ancient remnants of a small 6th BC century town. The town was initially built by the seaside but nowadays the ruins lie about 300m from the water due to rising tides in western Crete that have steadily increased the past 2,000 years.
Further south of Kastelli one can find the Ennia Horia or Nine Villages, an enchanting mountainous region known for its chestnut trees. Most people traverse through the region in order to visit Elafonisi, but visitors are advised to allocate some time in exploring what is possibly the lushest area of Crete. The area is compromised by the villages of Topolia, Koutsomados, Vlatos, Elos, Pervolia, Papadiana, Amidagakofelli, Kambos and the most renowned village of Milia, which has been reconstructed to resemble a more traditional outlook.
Kissamos is definitely one of the most worthwhile destinations in Crete. It is conveniently located between Chania town and some of the most beautiful beaches of whole Greece. Visitors to Crete should not miss an opportunity to visit this unique and enchanting place.
