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 Chania Port in Souda as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Souda is located 6.5 km east of the town of Chania on the road to Rethymnon. The town stretches along the southern coast of the Gulf of Souda. Suda is the largest natural harbour in the Mediterranean and it is formed by the main body of Crete and the Cape Meleha, called also Akrotiri.
The geophysical location and positioning of Souda, alongside with the size and suitable depth, makes it a safe harbour during the whole year. Its location in the centre of the eastern Mediterranean on the ancient sea routes gives a special strategic importance, accordingly causing the strong interest from ancient times until today. Souda Bay is one of the strategically important anchors of NATO in the Mediterranean. The port occupies the entire southwestern part of the bay and offers a modern commercial and passenger port and the main ferry link of west Crete with Piraeus.
Suda Bay has always been a large natural harbour and a strategic point of the eastern Mediterranean Sea through time for both commercial and military purposes. Consequently, most of the attractions located near Souda Bay, are directly related to the natural harbour. This port is much bigger than needed for ferries, so you won’t have any delays or get overcrowded.
