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 Vai as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. The palm beach of Vai is the largest palm forest in Europe and one of the most famous attractions of Crete. It is located 24km east of Sitia and 6km east of Palaikastro.
The legend says that the seeds of the tree where brought here by Saracen pirates, but the trees were proved to be older than 2000years. That’s why now the legend has been adjusted and replaced with Phoenicians. The divine palm grove is planted in a wide valley watered by the local river for centuries. The sandy beach in front of the palm forest is astonishing with crystal-clear turquoise waters. Being here gives you the feeling that you are on a Caribbean island. The entire area is owned by the Monastery of Toplou, which is the largest landowner in eastern Crete. Vai has no village, hotels or any accommodation, but during summertime, you will find all basic amenities for tourists here. Like sunbeds, umbrellas, drinks and also a restaurant which is owned by the monastery and serves delicious food. Vai was totally unknown until the early 1970s, when a popular commercial for chocolate with coconut was filmed here, using the magical background of palm trees. The beach has whitish sand and flat turquoise waters. In a few places, there are slippery smooth rocks, while on the opposite there are small islets that beautify the landscape. If you want to stay isolated, there is a lovely sandy beach 5 minutes north of Vai, while another option is the idyllic Psili Ammos beach in the south.
Vai is one of the greatest attractions of Crete, gathering thousands of visitors every year. The landscape here is so astonishing and heavenly that it looks like a lost paradise on earth. Your visit here will surely be memorable.
