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 Ligaria as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Ligaria is a small seaside village 20 km west of Heraklion town and 1km east of Agia Pelagia. The bay of Ligaria is well protected from the north winds and the sea is always calm here. That’s why it is famous amongst Cretans and a perfect place for families with small children.
The beach in Ligaria is wonderful with sand and turquoise calm water, while the small fishing boats create a magic picture. In general, you should avoid the east part of the beach which is less protected from the waves. Instead, if you head to the west side the water is always calm and cleaner. This side is also better organized with sunbeds, umbrellas, beach bars, restaurants and water sports. You should keep in mind that Lygaria is very famous amongst locals, as it is very close to Heraklion town, so on weekends is very hard to find a parking place. Behind the beach and on the rocks on the sides of the bay are a few houses owned by locals. That's about the whole village, tiny and beautiful. If you want you can walk till Agia Pelagia where you can find more restaurants and more choices in general or just for a change. It is a walk of about 20 minutes, up and down the hill.
Ligaria is a picturesque place ideal for family holidays or used as a base for exploring Crete, as it is pretty close to Heraklion town.
