Crete Airport Heraklion

Airport travel guide

The main city on Crete, Heraklion is a great destination to visit. Home to ancient sites, interesting museums, and splendid beaches, it packs a surprisingly diverse array of attractions. Heraklion can also serve as a hub for exploring the rest of Crete, especially the eastern part of the island. Here are five of its most interesting attractions:

  • Palace of Knossos. Sometimes called Europe’s oldest city, the Palace of Knossos was a political and sacred center of the Minoan civilization. Predating even the Ancient Greeks, little is known about this fascinating culture, so the archaeological site with its remaining frescoes and chambers offers a fascinating insight into their lives. According to legend, Knossos was also where the labyrinth of the Minotaur was located. The palace is located about 5 km (3 miles) south of the center of modern Heraklion center and can be reached by car in about ten minutes.
  • Archaeological Museum. Another place to see the historic marvels of Crete, the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion is one of the most impressive in all of Greece. In addition to the ancient artifacts on display, there’s also a relatively more recent collection from the island’s Roman period.
  • Koules. Although much more recent, the Koules Fortress is another symbol of Heraklion and Crete. While research suggests it might have first been fortified during the 9th century when the island was a Muslim emirate, the fort acquired its present, well-known form during the period of Venetian rule in the 16th century. Having protected the city during numerous fights and sieges, the fortress symbolizes the resilience of Cretans.
  • Rethymno. Located roughly halfway between Heraklion and Chania, the two largest cities of Crete, little Rethymno is a great destination for a day trip. Retaining much of its historical architecture, including its beautiful old town, the town has a special atmosphere, and the beaches are usually less busy than those around Heraklion. The trip from Heraklion to Rethymno takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes by car.
  • Samaria Gorge. Samaria Gorge. It is not an easy trip by any means - the drive from Heraklion takes about three hours one way - but Samaria Gorge is hands down the most stunning natural attraction on the island. Whether you hike all the way along the river or just enjoy the views from the top, the stunning canyon should be visited at least once. Splitting this trip into (at least) two days makes good sense, and there are plenty of lodging options in the area.
  • Monastery of Agarathos. The oldest Orthodox monastery in the Heraklion area is also one of the oldest across all of Crete. Situated close to the quaint village of Sgourokefali, the monastery's isolated setting adds to the attraction. Surrounded by beautiful courtyards, gardens, and olive groves where the monks produce oil,  the site is picture-perfect. The monastery is also fully functioning and offers a more "authentic" look at monastic life than can be obtained in the central Heraklion monasteries.

Popular one-way rentals

  • Agios Nikolaos (62 km / 38 mi). Located on the northeastern coast of the island, Agios Nikolaos is one of the most popular tourist destinations on Crete. Thousands of travelers come here every year to enjoy its nice beaches, quaint surrounding villages, and nearby islands that can be easily reached by boat.
  • Chania (142 km / 88 mi). The other large city of Crete, Chania has plenty of sites to visit and things to do. Some of the highlights are the well-preserved Etz Hayyim Synagogue, the Archaeological Museum, the old Venetian port, and some of the best restaurants on the island.
  • Hersonissos (25 km / 15 mi). A small city located roughly halfway between Heraklion and Agios Nikolaos, Hersonissos is a classic coastal party town — come summer, its long and built-up coastal strip will be full of beach bars, restaurants, and impromptu celebrations.
  • Ierapetra (96 km / 59 mi). Another beach city, but with a much more relaxed vibe, Ierapetra and the surrounding southeastern coast is a great destination for a day trip. The town is often claimed to be the warmest place in Europe and is nearly equidistant from three countries on three continents: mainland Greece (Europe), Turkey (Asia), and Libya (Africa). In addition to beautiful beaches, the town is also home to a nearby donkey sanctuary.

Creta is amazing, and I have the feeling we've got the most of it this time. We've travelled an western part of it, visited many really nice places (the nature is really something special there), spent some time with many very nice people, got luck with the weather. The only pitty is our trip was too short (10 days felt like just a moment...), and that car rental and fuel costs are not as low as for instance on Canary islands (we'd really like to spend much more time there on our next visit there).

Crete is a beautiful place to visit and drive around in with one very big drawback, while the highways are okay, the secondary roads leading to the beaches are goat paths. The local drivers do not follow any real rules on roads that are barely wide enough for two cars and often narrow down to single lane roads with blind corners and severe cliff edges, no guardrails and no way to know if someone else is coming around the corner.

Look up driving rules and conventions in Greece before you go. For example, local drivers expect you to move over into the hard shoulder to allow them to overtake. This is actually a very safe practice, as you don't have to cross onto the other side of the road into oncoming traffic to overtake. People, probably all tourists, who didn't do this were causing heavy traffic and forcing people to make dangerous overtaking manouvers

We were very glad we rented a car for our trip to Crete. It would have been difficult, if not impossible, to visit the places we did using local transportation. A word of warning: we used Google Maps for navigation, and the program will list ANY available road (and even some roads that don't exist). We would have needed a high-clearance, 4WD for some of the recommended routes, but we only had a compact hatchback. Be prepared to turn around and take an alternate way.

Crete is a fantastic island and it can be done best by driving around. I did one place per day and couldn't have done it by public transport

very good service overall / experience: - Fast - on time - simple Staff was very helpful especially want to mention the service when returning the car, thanks to Cristina or Cristiana (apologize if I did not write the name correctly). The only thing worth mentioning is the location, it was tricky to find them outside the airport building. It was a bit off the track and there are plenty other providers which makes it a challenging finding them in the first instance.

The car fleet seems new and there is a big variety of models and choice, all rental cars are mostly color white and tagged with a sticker on the rear window shield. Availability was a remarkable point, i don't know because of the corona crisis or it is always like that. It was a pleasure moving around with a rental car there.

A small car is recommended for getting around the small streets of Crete's towns and villages. But if you are going into the mountains then you need a larger engine.

Hard to find the rental booth, but once I did (I just called), it was great. The car had 140,000 km, but was clean and ran well.
