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 Heraklion town as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Heraklion boasts the title of the largest urban entity in Crete and is also the administrative capital of the island. Heraklion has an immense historical and cultural heritage, as in close proximity to the city visitors can find the Palace of Knossos, which has served as the centre of Minoan civilisation. Throughout the city, you can also find a number of constructions dating back to the Venetian occupation such as Koules Fortress in the old port.
Heraklion is home to some world class monuments and cultural landmarks. Among the most outstanding man-made structures is the Heraklion Fortress that contains the 'old town'. Originally built by Arab merchants and later on reinforced by Venetians, the Fortress included seven bastions, of which only the Martinego bastion survives the passing of time. Moreover, visitors will be delighted to find one of the gates to the city, named Chanioporta, which is ornate with the winged lion of Saint Marc. Visitors can also pay pilgrimage to the grave of one of Greece's most important writers and Nobel recipient, N. Kazantzakis. The sight that marks his resting place also offers some mesmerising views of the city.
Throughout the city, one can spot statues and monuments commemorating prolific figures that have been important for Greece's course through history and have contributed to Crete's immense cultural heritage. Some of the names include renaissance painter El Greco, Poet Vicenzo Kornaros and Politician Eleftherios Venizelos.
Moreover, the Archaeological museum should be on the top of every visitor's list; a splendid space that boasts a massive collection of ancient artefacts from all over the island and covers more than 5,500 years of history. Special emphasis is given to the spoils of Minoan civilisation, which has been one of the first to spring in the Southern European cost and was almost entirely wiped out by a volcanic eruption and a subsequent tsunami. The museum is home to the most important collection of surviving Minoan antiquities in the world and awaits its visitors to explore the mysteries of this extinguished civilisation.
Nowadays, Heraklion represents a beacon of Greek modernization and has been subjected to an extensive urban sprawl, that gives it a truly unique character. Despite the expansion of concrete residential blocs and the immense traffic, a short walk through the bustling streets and alleys will travel you through thousand years of history and will reveal to you the hip side of Greece with its rich coffee culture and culinary delights that can be found in every corner.
