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 Analipsi as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. The village of Analipsi is located 20km east of Heraklion and takes its name after the church of the Ascension of Christ. It is located in a fertile valley, cultivated mainly with olive groves. It is also known as Analipsis Hersonissou, as it is very close to the seaside resort of Hersonissos.
Tourist development in Analipsis began very recently and that sets her apart from other seaside resorts in the area. Thus, Analipsis maintains a very authentic Cretan character. Once you enter the village you will be surrounded by white houses with beautiful gardens and olive groves. One can stroll around the alleys and the stone-paved square, which is reasonably lively in the afternoon. Many shops and cafes can be found in the main commercial street of the village, which runs upright the coast.
One very picturesque sight traveller can visit is the little church in the beach of Analipsis. The waves are leaping at the underpinning of the church, thus creating a very scenic landscape which is adorned in the typical imaginary of travellers over what quintessential Greece looks like.
East of the church the main beach of Analipsis is located, which is reasonably long, sandy and organized with umbrellas and sunbeds. In the west side of the church, the coast is covered by unsmooth rocks and most people do not prefer it for swimming unless they want to spend some quiet time or take a walk below the tamarisk trees.
If you walk further west you can find a small, sandy cove which offers shelter from the summer winds and the sea is rough elsewhere. At the mouth of Apostemis creek lies another sandy beach. Due to its proximity to the river, one can find a few ducks waddling around.
