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 Kokkinos Pirgos as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Kokkinos Pirgos is located 67km west of Heraklion and close to the town of Tymbaki. The village owes its name after a tower made of red clay, which once stood here next to Geropotamos river. The area has a warm climate and the locals deal with growing vegetables and fishing. You can watch the small fishing boat at the small picturesque harbour of the village.
At Kokkinos Pirgos you will not find large hotels and beach resorts as the village is unspoiled by massive tourism. But in general, you will find all the basic amenities for tourists. Small hotels, fish tavernas and coffee shops. The long beach in Kokkinos Pirgos is sandy and ideal for walking. As you walk to the east you find the beach of Kalamaki and further on is the Komos Beach. On the west of Kokkinos Pirgos is Agia Galini, but is harder to walk as large stones make their appearance.
Kokkinos Pirgos is the perfect place to stay if you want to explore the area of the Messara plain, the Ida Mountains with the Psiloritis and the Southern part of the municipality of Rethymnon. Definitely a quiet place ideal for relaxing and taking a taste of true Cretan life.
