How Can I get from Heraklion Port to Bali?

by Ruth
(London)

Hi, I've been told that ferries can sometimes be delayed and because we are going to arrive from Santorini quite late, I was a bit worried about how could we get to our hotel in Bali.


Buses seem to finish around 9pm or 10pm. Is there any other option apart from taxis? Any idea how much could this ride cost?

Thank you!

From Santorini to Bali Beaches in Rethymnon Crete



Hi Ruth,

There is a pre-booked transfer service available which will give good peace of mind. The service can meet your ferry and will be informed if the ferry is delayed. The transfer can then take you to your hotel in Bali.

You have a few choices of transport on this route...Of course, the sea always has the last word with ferry crossings, and for safety reasons the trip may be delayed.

The fast ferries from Santorini (Thira) to Heraklion in Crete run May to October and depart 5.30 pm arriving 7.15 pm. This is Hellenic Seaways service.

From June to October, the TeraJet leaves Santorini at 5.20 pm and arrives to Heraklion at 6.55 pm, this is run by SeaJet service.

From April to October, the MegaJet leaves Santorini at 5.30 pm and gets to Rethymnon at 8.00 pm, this is also run by SeaJet ferries.

More information for Getting Around in Crete including taxis and pre-arranged transfers.

See info for pre-booked transfers here at Taxi Reservations...

For up to 4 people from Heraklion to Bali, shows a cost of around 60 Euro if pickup is around 7.15 pm.

For up to 4 people from Rethymnon to Bali, shows a cost of around 66 Euro if pickup is around 8.00 pm.

You can put in your Port and your destination area (Bali) or hotel name to see exactly how much it will be for your relevant date and time of day.

The coves of Bali are five beautiful beaches on the north coast of Crete, 34 km from Rethymnon town, with clear waters perfect for snorkelling or diving. Protected by the peninsula, these calm waters are great for families or just relaxing, inland are mountains to explore. A popular hiking area is Mount Kouloukonas.

Hire a car or take the local bus to visit Rethymnon town, explore its old town with narrow lane ways and beautiful Venetian architecture. There are the old port, the lighthouse and the fortezza to visit, and the atmospheric plazas and museums.

Bon Voyage! Kalo Taxidi!
