TransferPlan will transfer you from Heraklion airport to Makry Gialos 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 Makri Gialos as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Makry Gialos is a famous seaside resort in southeast Crete, in Lassithi Prefecture, 58km southeast of Agios Nikolaos and 23km east of Ierapetra.
Starting as a humble harbour disconnected by any road network until the 50s, Makrigialos has faced such development that now stands as one of the largest and most popular destinations of South-east Crete. Numerous businesses operate in the village, so the visitors can choose from an array and variety of hotels, taverns, restaurants, bars, cafes, supermarkets and bakeries. Also, ATMs are widely available.
The key asset that drove up Makrigilos' popularity is the beautiful and shallow beaches in and around the surrounding area and the magnificent mountain range of Thripti that ascends in the horizon north of the village. The main beach of Makrigialos lies in front of Analipsi and its 1km long. The official name of the beach is 'Makrigialos' but some locals refer to it as 'Hani' or simply 'Long Beach'. The beach is adorned by thick layers of golden sand and is well-organized. Here you can find a selection of cafes and restaurants, umbrellas and sunbeds, shower facilities, water sports and shady tamarisk trees. The temperature of the water is quite high even in winter times and the waters are shallow and calm, thus making the beach of Analipsi ideal for families with children.
West of the village and behind the harbour, lies a little-known beach named Kalamokanias, paved with coarse sand. North of the port, in Katovigli, you can find a small sandy beach, which is considered the extension of Makrigialos beach. Katovigli is also well organized and free umbrellas and sunbeds are installed for beach-goers.
Apart from the gorgeous coastline, visitors should not miss the ancient ruins of the Roman villa, dating back to the 2nd century. This site is quite unique from an architectural perspective and visitors can admire the remnants of some elaborate Roman baths and mosaics.
The village location is also exquisite as it faces an impressive mountain backdrop. Visitors can visit some of the local gorges which are equally as rewarding as the more famous Samaria Gorge. After a hike, visitors can enjoy time at the village harbour, sit in a cafe and just watch the world go by. Makry Gialos is an ideal place for relaxing holidays away from the mass tourism.
