What also struck us was how close the airfield was to the sea, literally alongside the beach. You can also see the Tavronitis Bridge from the hill, although the main bridge used today is not the one that was there in the Second World War.
The little museum/taverna on the site is well kept with some interesting bits and pieces. A lot of the bits of Ju52 have been salvaged from the local area and quite a few from the airfield itself. Pride of place is a Bofors gun too.
If you're flying into the island using Chania airport, Maleme and Hill 107 is about twenty minutes away to the west. From Heraklion it is about 2 hours along the coast road.
