TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Sisi as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Sisi is a small Greek resort in the municipal unit Lasithi and it is situated on the north coast, 35 km east of Heraklion.
Sisi is a small Cretan village right by the seaside with narrow picturesque alleys and some traditional tavernas. Sisi's trademark would be the small natural harbour at the waterfront, with deep emerald water and a serene surface. The coastline of Sisi is quite rough and full of rocks, with the exception of a few pebble beaches. In addition, the sea tends to be wavy for the most part.
Sisi stands as a stark contradiction in the region and you can sense it as soon as you leave the more vibrant areas of Malia and Hersonissos. The absolute lack of mass tourism, bars and night-clubs have established Sisi as an oasis of peace and relaxation for the more solitary travellers and those who prefer a more rustic destination. The main road of the village doesn't reveal its charm straight away since it is your typical commercial street with tavernas, gift shops and holiday rentals. However, once you walk up to the harbour at the end of the road, your mind will be radically changed once you're met with the splendid views of the blue sea spreading all the way to the horizon ahead of you. Sisi is a truly idyllic place of simple, yet, great beauty fully encompassing the spirit of old Crete.
The harbour itself is a work of Mother Nature. The decaying coastline gave way to the sea, thus forming a narrow bay surrounded by a few rocks that also protect the harbour from the waves coming from the Libyan Sea. The bay is not only known for its outstanding beauty, but also for its rich historical heritage. In the times of the Cretan Revolution against the Ottoman Empire, Sisi bay was a strategic point for unloading guns and munitions for the brave Lasithi rebels. In these days the harbour is a place reserved for a few fishing boats and a common sight in the afternoon is this of fisherwomen sitting by the shore and shorting out the catch of the day.
The only beach in the village is located within the harbour. The beach itself is small and narrow but it also provides a few umbrellas, sunbeds and shower facilities for the beach-goers. Alternatively, you can head eastwards until you find the Harkoma Bay with the well-organized beach of Boufos. Boufos beach is sandy and tends to be windy for the most part. Right next to the bay you will find a smaller beach named Avlaki. A few meters on the east lies the sandy beach of the Kalimera Kriti Hotel. On the other side of the hotel, you will find Spiliada beach which is lined with tamarisk trees and is considerably less busy than the above options.
Once you visit Sisi you will inevitably yearn for more as it is the kind of place people always return to. It's unique beauty and its tranquil atmosphere will mesmerise you and will leave you with some of the most unique memories of Crete.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Chania Port in Souda as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Souda is located 6.5 km east of the town of Chania on the road to Rethymnon. The town stretches along the southern coast of the Gulf of Souda. Suda is the largest natural harbour in the Mediterranean and it is formed by the main body of Crete and the Cape Meleha, called also Akrotiri.
The geophysical location and positioning of Souda, alongside with the size and suitable depth, makes it a safe harbour during the whole year. Its location in the centre of the eastern Mediterranean on the ancient sea routes gives a special strategic importance, accordingly causing the strong interest from ancient times until today. Souda Bay is one of the strategically important anchors of NATO in the Mediterranean. The port occupies the entire southwestern part of the bay and offers a modern commercial and passenger port and the main ferry link of west Crete with Piraeus.
Suda Bay has always been a large natural harbour and a strategic point of the eastern Mediterranean Sea through time for both commercial and military purposes. Consequently, most of the attractions located near Souda Bay, are directly related to the natural harbour. This port is much bigger than needed for ferries, so you won’t have any delays or get overcrowded.
