TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Heraklion Port as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Heraklion port is situated at the center of Heraklion Prefecture’s northern coast and adjacent to island’s capital.
The modern Heraklion port was firstly established in the 20th century and expanded eastwards of its older predecessor, the 700-year-old Venetian port that now serves as an attraction and a place of pleasure. Heraklion port is the second largest and busiest harbour in Greece after Piraeus.
The port is conveniently located along the middle part of the Cretan highway that serves the northern part of the island. The highway offers an easy getaway to the towns of Agios Nikolaos, Sitia, Kissamos, Rethymnon, Chania and Heraklion. It is busy all-year-round with an approximate number of 2 million visitors annually. The port services very popular routes such as Piraeus-Athens, Thessaloniki and a number of Aegean islands. Itineraries are regular and for other major ports, ships depart daily.
The Harbour hosts visitors for both touristic purposes and commercial activities. It possesses an array of facilities for the convenience of all travellers. In close proximity to the port, one can find in abundance shops, cafes and restaurants within a short walking distance.
The port is an 'umbrella' term covering both the new Heraklion Ferry Port and the old Venetian Harbour. The 'Castello a Mare' more widely known as Koules is a significant walled structure marking the entrance to the old Venetian port. The fortress dates back to the 16th century and is presumed that Cretan rebels were tortured in its underground chambers by mercenaries of the Ottoman Empire during the times of Crete's occupation. The Heraklion old town is located nearby, thus after a visit to the Fortress travellers can enjoy a walk through the vibrant streets of the city or taste some delicacies prepared by the friendly and hospitable locals.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Almyrida as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Almyrida is a lovely fishing village and seaside resort to the east of Souda Bay. It is found in the Apokoronas area of Crete which is famous for its outstanding beauty and it is located 25 km east of the town of Chania. The village is full of olive and orange trees and the area is so untouched and picturesque as it was when “Zorba the Greek” was filmed. In 1977 the area was declared as a region of infinite beauty.
Almyrida has two nice sandy beaches with shallow waters which make them ideal for families with small children, although sometimes it gets really wavy. Between the two beaches, there is a small rocky peninsula with a small idyllic white chapel. The peninsula is well organized with beach bars and popular for its water sports. The seaside road is full of restaurants and taverns famous for its fresh fish and delicious traditional Cretan food. The large sandy bay of Almyrida is awarded a “blue flag” for its beach. The untouched countryside around Almyrida is ideal for hiking and evening walks. East of the seaside resort is the idyllic village of Plaka, famous for its healthy climate and the Cretan hospitality of the locals. The several sea caves of the east coasts till Drapanos Cape create an impressive natural phenomenon. Plaka is famous for its labyrinth narrow streets and the old houses, making it unique for a walk during the evenings. Here you will find tranquillity and peacefulness and enjoy a traditional Greek coffee with the locals. Opposite Almyrida is the islet of Karga, which you can visit for a day trip or go for fishing with local small fishing boats. The islet is also the natural home of many birds which you can admire by the close.
In the last few years, visitors have become so charmed by Apokoronas area that they keep coming back every year. Some of them, especially from Northern Europe, even buy houses in the area as they are eternally in love with the place. Although the village is starting to get more tourists every year, it has still retained that charm of a little fishing village and the locals still rely on the land and sea for their main income. It is a nature lover’s paradise, a place of serenity and calmness away from massive tourism.
