Restricted usage roads
Save

We are arriving in Crete June 2 for the first time and have rented a car. I was looking at the distance from the Heraklion port to our hotel Elounda Heights. There were some roads identified as restricted access. What does this mean and do we need to find a different route to avoid them. Thanks.

It's pretty much one straight road all the way to Elounda, if you've got a Sat Nav it will tell you the best way, if not, you might find google maps helpful.

I don't know why that hasn't shown up as a link, but copy and paste it and it'll give you a route.

Hi there

If you want directions from the airport then happy to give you these, I am not sure why it’s coming up restricted access ( assuming you are referring to the road up to your accommodation ? ) It is quite steep as we have driven up here to the Imperia taverna, anyway if you haven’t got a sat nav happy to help :-)

The OP said the port, that might be why? I was confused too.

Thanks Ginesy21 didn’t see that :-) yes good point what would perhaps make more sense with the restricted access
