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 Karteros as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Karteros is a resort village, 7km east of the Heraklion airport. The bay of Karteros is 3,5km long. On this long bay there are two settlements, Karteros and Amnissos, but because of the rapid tourism development, the two villages are now merged to one.
In this beautiful beachfront, with the golden sand, you will find many hotels, restaurants, coffee shops and beach bars. Unfortunately, Karteros Bay is open to north winds, that’s why the sea is sometimes wavy. There are no rocks here and the waters are shallow, making ideal for families with small children. The less crowded side of the beach is located just next to the Heraklion airport and it is called Florida. In Florida ends up the river of Karteros which during summertime is dry. Around the area, there are two churches, St John and St Nikon, which are built inside a cave. The main beach of Karteros is very well organized and you can find all touristic amenities. The next beach east of Karteros beach is named Xenia, after a local abandoned hotel. East of Xenia beach is the hill of Paleohora. The archaeologists believe that this is where the ancient town of Amnisos was built. The excavations have revealed several buildings, a large temple and a Minoan harbour. To the east, you will find the famous Minoan Lilies villa. This villa is considered to be the resort house of King Minos. East of the villa is the last part of Karteros bay which is called Tobruk. Here you will find a lot of restaurants, hotels and fish taverns. The beachfront is also very well organized with a nice sandy beach.
Karteros is ideal for family holidays or it can be used as a base for exploring Crete. It is a little bit noisy though as the aeroplanes approach the landing airway of Nikos Kazantzakis airport from this part of the island.
