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 Lentas as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Lentas is a coastal village 75 km south of Heraklion, on the south coast of Crete. This seaside village is built on the site of the ancient city of Leven, in a small cove at the slopes of the Asterousia mountains. The name Lentas, which means lion, owes its name from the Cape which is to the west of the village and it has the shape of a lion. Due to its isolated location you won’t see many visitors here even in the summertime.
This small fishing village has no large hotels or resorts. Only some rooms to let and some tavernas by the wave. When in Lentas, you can see the ruins of the temple of Asclepius, dating to the 3rd century BC. The shrine and the healing springs were visited by visitors from all over the eastern Mediterranean. If you visit the place you will see remains of the temple like two broken marble columns, a statue base and parts of a mosaic from roman times. By the temple is a very beautiful small church. Lentas is full of small isolated beaches. One of them is Limanaki, meaning the small harbour in Greek, with sand and pebbles. The village beach is also a great place to swim. The beach is located in a naturally protected bay with the deep blue crystal-clear sea. Here you can find some sunbeds and umbrellas. Apart from the village beach in Lentas there is also the beautiful sandy beach Diskos on the other side of the lion mountain. Follow the western paved road from Lentas towards Dytikos or just walk the shorter path directly over the lion. Dytikos, as Matala, is also known as an old hippie colony, you can still swim naked and camp quite simple on the beach. Nude and wild camping are allowed here.
Beautiful beaches, amazing mountain scenery, quiet walks, nice rooms at the seaside, delicious food and extremely friendly people await you at the small village Lentas by the Libyan Sea.
