TransferPlan will transfer you from Heraklion airport to Malia 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 Malia as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Malia is a coastal town and a former municipality in the northeast corner of the Heraklion regional unit. It lies 35 kilometres east of Heraklion, the Cretan capital city.
Malia is considered the 'Party Mecca' of Crete or the Cretan equivalent of Koh Phangan and Magaluf. In the area, one can find flocks of British tourists going there for their gap year, stag and hen parties or simply go there to rock it. Travelling to Malia is advised against as its cultural impact and natural beauty is minimal and other than crazy nightlife has not much to offer.
Malia is mostly ideal for the young, the party-goers, and the heavy drinkers. Every second place in Malia seems to be a facility dedicated to night-time entertainment. Standard establishments such as hotels and restaurants can be found all around. Also, if you would like to see a place retaining some of its authenticity, you could visit an old village located south of the main coastal road.
The two main roads of Malia are conjoined in the centre of the town, in front of the Church of Saint Nektarios. One of the roads is turned into a pedestrian zone and is considered the 'party lane' of Malia, where young tourists patron one of the many bars and clubs until the early hours of the morning. The second road crosses vertically the pedestrian zone and is full of cafes, shops, supermarkets and banks. This road tends to be calmer as well.
Malia is also home to the third largest Minoan palace in Crete. The ancient Palace of Malia belonged to legendary King Sarpedon, who according to the myth he was the son of Zeus and goddess Europa and brother of King Minos. Excavations around the area have also brought to the surface many burial places full of treasures and golden ornaments. One of the most famous discoveries is the jewel decorated with bees, that is exhibited in the archaeological museum of Heraklion. Unfortunately, many of the tombs were looted prior to excavation from the archaeologists and the number and nature of objects lost remain unknown to this day.
Fifteen minutes ride north from Malia is the traditional village of Krasi. The route will take you across a gorge lined with carob and oak trees. Krasi's most famous attraction is the huge plane tree, which cannot be circled even by ten people lined up. In the central village, you can have a coffee or eat in one of the traditional taverns and sample the local delicacies which are renowned for their quality all over Crete. You can conclude your visit by taking a walk along the alleyways and narrow streets of the village.
