    Because of its rugged terrain, no trains are to be found on Crete. All cities and beaches can only be accessed by car or bus. KTEL is the bus service on Crete, and I will have to say that it does an excellent job. You truly can get to anywhere on the island. Obviously, you will have to wait awhile in the smaller cities. But, if you are in Iraklion, Hania, Rethymno, there are frequent buses to most parts of the island. Buses generally run late, up until midnight in some cases.

    Buses connecting Iraklion and Hania (the two main cities) leave every 30 minutes, from 5:30 AM to 11 PM. Hania's KTEL station is very central, only a 5 minute walk from the harbor. There are numerous signs to lead you either way.

    Chania has daily sea connection with Piraeus via ferry boats. The bay of Suda that serves as the port of Chania, is the biggest bay in the East Mediterranean.
    The airport of Hania is located at Sternes, in Akrotiri, 14 km east of the town. Chania is connected by air to Athens but there are also several charter flights from all over Europe during the summer. At the airport are car rentals and taxis for all parts of the island.

    Deck Class

    ANEK Lines has a boat leaving Pireaus each night at 8:30 and vice versa. The cost for a deck class ticket was 5900 drachma. Had I not found a fellow traveler also on his way to Crete I probably would have shared a female cabin just for safetys sake. Deck Class on a 10 hour ferry is esentially the equivilant to a slumber party with 1000's of strangers sprawled from bow to stern. Arrive at the ferry early to claim a comfortable spot.

    Ferries for Hania dock at Souda, about 7km east of town.
