TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Stalida as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Stalida is a village that lies between Malia and Hersonissos on the north coast of Crete, 30 km from Heraklion airport. It is a lively resort, attracting tourists from many European countries.
The heart of Stalis can be found in the 5km long coastal road, which is lined up with several kinds of shops and establishments. During sunset time, a walk along the beach is a 'must do' for all visitors. The beach itself stretches for several kilometres, up to the eastern part of Malia. Moreover, the beach is sandy and the waters are shallow making it ideal for younger visitors. Also, the beach diverges into two parts and is separated because of a short rocky cape in the middle. Stalis beach is very well organized and offers several amenities such as, sun loungers, umbrellas, lifeguards, beach volley courts, showers, beach bars, water sports, changing rooms and every other facility you might need. Stalis is also famous for its Cretan date palm plantation, which is one of the few in Heraklion prefecture.
Stalida itself was named after the Greek verb 'stalizo' which means 'stop for resting' and that's Stalis main difference with Malia and Hersonissos and other similar resorts. There you can just unwind in one of the small family hotels and have some terrific long walks along the coast or simply sit in a coffee house and just watch the world go by.
For adrenaline junkies and hiking enthusiasts, the Bulgarian trail that ascends all the way up to Mohos offers an excellent opportunity for a trek. The trail was named after some Bulgarian POVs from WW2 who were forced to build it. The total distance to Mohos is 5 km but the trail itself is strenuous, always on the incline and with no shade, thus making it a challenging hike. On the way, you will be able to cross a pedestrian bridge above the highway and a few kilometres away you will reach the monastery of the Virgin Mary. Once you reach Mohos you can enjoy a well-earned coffee in one of the local establishments on the main square. Alternatively, the Mohos trail can be done in reverse or descend through another Mohos trail towards Malia.
The main difference of Stalida from Hersonissos and Malia is that this place is ideal for families. You will find peaceful small hotels where you can relax, have a walk and enjoy a terrific view of the bay of Hersonissos.

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.
