Ferries to Crete All the travel offers on MrFerry!

Crete is the largest island in Greece; located in the Eastern Mediterranean, it is generally considered the watershed between the Aegean and Libyan Seas. Cradle of the ancient Minoan civilisation, due to the numerous archaeological sites, the pleasantly temperate climate and the scenic beauty spread throughout the territory, it is one of the tourist destinations that lends itself to being visited at any time of the year.

The short distance from the Greek mainland makes it possible to reach the island rather quickly by sea: ferries to Crete leave from the port of Piraeus, near the capital Athens, to Chania and Heraklion. The ferry companies that operate daily connections are Anek Lines and Minoan Lines.

In addition, Crete is connected to other Aegean islands such as Santorini, Rhodes and Milos. The inter-island connections will drop you off at the ports of Heraklion and Sitia. These connections allow you to plan a holiday exploring the Greek archipelago, even embarking your own vehicle, so you can always move around independently.

If you decide to book on MrFerry, you will be able to compare timetables and costs of the various companies and choose the solution that suits you best. Once you have completed your payment, you will receive your tickets on your email.

Ferries to Crete Connections and travel options

The ferry companies connecting Crete to the Greek mainland offer night sailings, so that disembarkation takes place at a convenient time to make the most of the day. The duration of the crossing is around 9 hours, regardless of the route, a time that is pleasantly spent on board thanks to the services and accommodation available on all ferries.

All ferries to Crete carry passengers, vehicles and pets. Most travellers prefer accommodation in the spacious cabins, which are equipped with restrooms, since departure is in the evening. However, if you prefer a more economical solution, seats and deck passage are also available. The catering service, passenger lounge, as well as the children's play area and the possibility of cooling off with a walk on the outside deck will make your journey extremely relaxing. On board you will always be able to connect to the Wi-Fi network and you will find several shops where you can make last-minute purchases, buy souvenirs and Cretan handicrafts. Connections to the Greek islands offer the same services, including accommodation. On some particularly short routes it is not possible to book a cabin.

Take the ferry to Crete and discover astounding places!

Depending on where you land, you will find different attractions on the enchanting island of Crete! Heraklion is the island's main port and also its capital. As the ferry approaches your destination, you can admire the Venetian walls that surround the port area. As soon as you disembark, it is only a 2 km walk to the city centre and the famous Plateia Venzielou square. Here you can enjoy shopping in the city's many shops, stalls and markets.

Crete was the cradle of the Minoan civilisation. Take advantage of your holiday to get to know this fascinating population, one of the first cultures to develop in the Mediterranean area. Near Heraklion are the ruins of the palace of Knossos, whose beautiful frescoes tell the main legends connected with the island. The main artefacts found here are now kept in the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, which you should visit at the first opportunity!

The most beautiful beaches in Heraklion are Ammoudara and Lygiara, but you’ll be spoilt for choice - they are all beautiful and have crystal-clear waters that you can't help but dive into. This is the most touristy area, so all the beaches are equipped with umbrella and sunbed rental services, bars and restaurants. And after a relaxing day at the beach, you can head out to discover the lively nightlife of Heraklion, where there is always a party to attend!

If you land in Chania, you will be in the perfect place for nightlife and entertainment! Discos, clubs and bars open all night long abound here. Before starting your evening, you can dine in one of the restaurants with a sea view and enjoy the sunset. Sitia, on the other hand, is the quieter part of the island, ideal for romantic holidays or for those seeking a holiday dedicated to pure relaxation. Here you will find uncrowded beaches, hiking trails in beautiful natural parks and many small, quaint villages where you can stroll and discover Crete's thousand-year history.
