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 Milatos as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Milatos is a small fishing village located 45km east of Heraklion Town, just next to Sisi. Milatos is an ancient city from Minoan times very important because of its geostrategic position. The area is a true Cretan landscape with small rocky coves, ancient olive trees and crystal-clear water. Here you will find many beaches suitable for swimming.
One kilometre east of Milatos, at Pigada you will some small isolated bays with sand, which are surrounded by high rocks and enjoy your own private beach. The main beach of Milatos is just next to the picturesque small harbour. It is a large beach with pebbles and rocks but unfortunately very wavy. The next beach is located inside the harbour near the taverns of the village. It is a small sandy beach, quite well-organized, preferred by most of the visitors and families with small children, as the water is always calm.
The famous Milatos cave is located close to the village. However, the Milatos cave is really known for a drama which unfolded with Turkish invaders in February 1823. Early in 1823, the residents of the surrounding area took refuge in the Milatos Cave to hide from the Turkish troops of Hasan Pasha, who were plundering and looting Lassithi. The Cretan rebel leaders, with a tiny force of about 150 men, fought the Pasha's large army around the cave in a desperate defence of the local inhabitants. The fighting went on for two weeks, until the besieged, suffering from extreme hunger and thirst, dared a heroic, but devastating escape. The defending warriors were slaughtered, many of the older ones trampled to death by oncoming Cavalry, the captured children were sold into slavery and 18 priests were burned to death.
Milatos is ideal for relaxing holidays away from mass tourism and close to Heraklion town and Hersonissos. It can be easily used as your base for exploring Crete.
