TransferPlan will transfer you from Heraklion airport to Skaleta 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 Skaleta as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Skaleta is about 12 km east of Rethymno on Crete's north-central coast and 65km west of Heraklion. Skaleta was a small seaside village, but with the rapid touristic development nowadays is more like a resort area. That means is full of hotels and resorts and generally, the town is built to please the visitors. Its proximity to Rethymnon town makes it an ideal destination for tourists.
Skaleta Beach is very long, with mixed sand and pebbles and well organized. Being so long gives you the advantage that you will never feel overcrowded. All the facilities that you would expect at a large sandy beach such as plenty of taverns, beach bars and water sports are to be found here. If you are looking for exciting nightlife and partying, then this is not your place. Skaleta is a quiet place for those looking for relaxation on their holidays. Skaleta beachfront starts 11km east of Rethymno and stretches 3km to the east. It is the last part of the long beach of the Bay of Rethymno. The first beach after Pighianos Kampos is Sfakaki, a very well organised resort. Following, after 1km you'll meet Stavromenos, named after the specific settlement of the region. The beaches are generally sandy and very well organized, with some parts that have pebbles and small rocks. As you head to the east, the sand strip gets narrower and fading out, until it disappears at the end of the Rethymno Gulf. After another 1km, you’ll meet the last part of the vast beachfront of East Rethymnon, Skaleta. Like all north-coast beaches, Skaleta beachfront is open to the winds and is usually wavy. During summer nights, from May to September, loggerhead sea turtles lay their eggs in the sand of the Gulf. So, it is usual to see small parts of the beach where nests have been identified, being blocked and not accessible by visitors.
Skaleta is made for those seeking relaxation, who want to enjoy the Cretan sunshine and swim a little bit. Here you can find a lot of food choices, from small fish taverns till big restaurants. You can also use it as a base to explore the region of Rethimno.
