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 Mochlos as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Mochlos is a traditional village and a modern island in the Gulf of Mirabello in eastern Crete, located 48km east of Agios Nikolaos and 35km west of Sitia.
Mochlos used to be an ancient Minoan settlement which overlooks a beautiful islet which is also an archaeological site. If you want to visit the islet you can take a five-minute boat-ride or if you feel adventurous you can try to swim there.
The closest bitch to the village is located right in front of it and its paved with sand but it has a rocky seabed. The beach has the typical basic amenities but it is not one of the best organized around as well. East of the village you will find a second bay which is smaller and rockier. For more peace and quiet you could choose the isolated sandy beach of Limeria, located 400m west of Mochlos. There you can find the local harbour and the beach is almost never wavy.
Mochlos village has managed to retain its traditional character and it has a very unique vibe unspoiled by the perils of mass tourism. There you will only find a handful of tavernas, a couple of shops and a few family-run hotels and establishments, that makes it a perfect destination to unwind and relax. Peace and serenity will mesmerise you and the local food is divine. In the local tavernas, you can find a variety of fresh fish, dried squid, local lamb, chicken, cheese pastries and pies, taramosalata, organic potatoes and an array of local liquors, wines and beers.
Mochlos is an excellent place for those who want a stress-free holiday and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. This place is also well off the beaten track so you will be a hit with the locals, who after a few days will start calling you with your small name.
