Getting there & away




Crete has ports at Iraklio, Souda (for Hania), Rethymno, Agios Nikolaos, Sitia and Kissamos. The car price for ferries from Crete to the mainland is about €86.

Ferries may stop at different islands en route and sailing times vary on some routes because of the type of craft used. The following are the main high-season schedules; services are reduced by about half during low season.

Crete has two international airports. The main and biggest one is at Iraklio and there is a smaller one at Hania. Sitia’s small domestic airport was expanded but has yet to start operating international charters. All three have flights to Athens and Thessaloniki; Iraklio also has flights to Rhodes.
