TransferPlan will transfer you from Heraklion airport to Ligaria 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 Ligaria as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Ligaria is a small seaside village 20 km west of Heraklion town and 1km east of Agia Pelagia. The bay of Ligaria is well protected from the north winds and the sea is always calm here. That’s why it is famous amongst Cretans and a perfect place for families with small children.
The beach in Ligaria is wonderful with sand and turquoise calm water, while the small fishing boats create a magic picture. In general, you should avoid the east part of the beach which is less protected from the waves. Instead, if you head to the west side the water is always calm and cleaner. This side is also better organized with sunbeds, umbrellas, beach bars, restaurants and water sports. You should keep in mind that Lygaria is very famous amongst locals, as it is very close to Heraklion town, so on weekends is very hard to find a parking place. Behind the beach and on the rocks on the sides of the bay are a few houses owned by locals. That's about the whole village, tiny and beautiful. If you want you can walk till Agia Pelagia where you can find more restaurants and more choices in general or just for a change. It is a walk of about 20 minutes, up and down the hill.
Ligaria is a picturesque place ideal for family holidays or used as a base for exploring Crete, as it is pretty close to Heraklion town.
