The Greek island of Antikythira sits in the crystalline waters of the Aegean Sea, equidistant from the Peloponnese region of Greece and the popular coastline of Crete. This sparsely populated islet is almost entirely covered by Mediterranean vegetation, which covers the steep hills and rocky cliffs that line the Aegean shore.
The isle is the ideal location for migratory birds, with many using it as a natural rest stop whilst travelling between Africa and Europe. Antikythira is home to the world’s largest breeding ground for Eleonora’s falcon, which migrates from Madagascar to the Mediterranean. It’s become an important research outpost for the study of the species.
The Port of Antikythira is found on the north of the island. The passenger terminal is made up of a small pier which is situated at the foot of a narrow inlet of the ocean, just along from a small, hill top marina.
Despite a sparse population and small terminal, Antikythira services four separate routes. The Lane Sea Lines services leave throughout the week with two destinations on the Greek mainland and two on other Greek islands. The services sail to Kissamos in the north western peninsula of Crete, the island of Kythira as well as Gythion and Piraeus on the mainland.
Kythira is a Greek island known as the “Island of sweet secrets”, between Peloponnese and Crete, opposite the south-eastern tip of the Peloponnese peninsula.
Kythira is an island with remarkable natural beauty, wondrous beaches and many sightseeing attractions.
Some of the best beaches in Kythira include Fyri Ammos which was awarded Blue Flag for its crystal clear waters; Kapsali with dual bays overlooking the grand castle of Chora; Paleopolis, the largest beach on the island and the small but picturesque beach of Chalkos.
The marvellous Byzantine castle city of Paleochora, the Venetian castles of Chora and Mylopotamos, as well as the Katuoni, the largest stone bridge in Greece showcase the long and varied history of Kythira and the influence of many civilisations and cultures.
Kythira is also famous within Greece for its thyme honey as well as some small-scale cultivation of vegetables and fruit.
