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.

Gouves is located 18 km east of Heraklion city, close to Gournes, consisted of a large area which is separated into two villages. The seaside village is called Kato Gouves and the old village next to the mountain Ederi is called Ano Gouves. The name Gouves is mostly referring to the seaside village.
Gouves is a residential area which is neither a village nor a town, mostly developed because of tourism. It has a main road that starts from the highway and ends to the coast of the seaside village. This place is full of hotels, apartments and rooms to let. Gouves offers peaceful holidays, ideal for families with children. Here you will find mostly families that enjoy the lovely sandy beaches, close to all necessary amenities. The beach of Gouves is very well organized with umbrellas, sunbeds, water sports, showers and changing rooms. The sea has fine sand and shallow water but is open to the frequent north winds, that’s why it is wavy. Therefore, there are several small piers and small marinas nearby, where you can swim, protected by the waves. The road of Gouves runs along the coast, which is full of beach bars, coffee shops and restaurants. In the evening you can walk along this road and enjoy the sunset. A place worth visiting is the church of St. Constantine, which is built within a small pine forest, just next to the sea. It is situated in a very scenic seascape and this is why hundreds of couples from Heraklion choose to get married here. Further north, you can visit the Cave of Agia Paraskevi, located near the village of Skotino.
