Port of Chania

Land Transport and Travel To and From Port Crete
(Chania, Crete, Greece)

Ferry passengers disembarking at Souda have several transport options for the journey to Chania. The cheapest option is to take a local bus for the four-mile journey into town. Alternatively, if the bus is full or not available, you can catch a taxi from outside the terminal.

Some hotels in the area also offer a pick-up service from the port; passengers wishing to take advantage of this service should contact their hotel in advance.

Travel by Bus and Shuttles

There is a regular bus service between Souda and Chania town centre. Buses leave from outside the main market and drop off at the ferry terminal. Chania is connected with the rest of Crete by an extensive bus network. To find the bus station, head to the top of Halidon street, cross the square and turn right; the station is on the left.

Car Hire and Road Travel

To reach the port by car, you need to head east out of the town. You will find the port 6 km / 4 miles from Chania at Souda.

Car hire is widely available on the island, with some companies able to meet you at the port with a vehicle; however, visitors should be aware that some of the smaller companies' vehicles may not be of a high standard. The most reliable way of ensuring you receive the car of your choice is to book online, where you can compare details of all available hire companies.
