• How can I get to my hotel from the port?

A KTEL bus stop lies near the ports of Agios Nikolaos and Sitia, with buses to the capitals of Chania, Rethymno, and Heraklion, as well as parts of the Lassithi prefecture. Most KTEL routes are available throughout the year, so if your accommodation lies in the main towns or a popular settlement, you can reach it via bus.
Due to the high number of arriving tourists (especially during the high season), catching a taxi from large centers can be difficult. Booking a transfer service or renting a car guarantees fast and convenient transportation.
Also, note that a handful of hotels offer a shuttle service to their visitors, so contact your accommodation of choice in advance!

• How can I get to Agios Nikolaos?

Agios Nikolaos can be reached by bus or private transfers from both the port of Agios Nikolaos and the port and airport of Sitia!

• How can I get to some of the finest beaches?

A rental car is a prime option for visiting the most high-profile or secluded beaches. Should you be interested in witnessing the most famous seashores, our organized tours will help you enjoy a beach trip and a visit to a fantastic sight while also offering quality food! Plus, a handful of bus stops can be found near some shores, and taxis are still a great choice.

• Can I rely on public means of transport?

Lassithi buses help you move between big centers and popular towns with semi-frequent itineraries. However, if you want to check out the most remote spots of the prefecture without time limits, it is recommended that you rent a car for your vacation.

• Are the distances between the centers of Lassithi and the touristy spots long?

Agios Nikolaos and Sitia are on opposite sides of Lassithi. Elounda, a popular tourist resort, is no more than a couple of kilometers from Agios Nikolaos, though Sitia has very few well-known villages nearby. Plus, the southern part of Lassithi, featuring areas like Ierapetra and Makris Gialos, is quite the distance from both Agios Nikolaos and Sitia.
