Kythera Island, Greece.
Olympic Air runs one daily flight between the island and Athens throughout the year.
Otherwise access is by sea from the southern Peloponnesian ports of Neapolis (one mid-morning ferry daily, making the journey in 1hr: T. 27340 22660 & 24004); Gytheion (four sailings per week—3 hrs: T. 27330 22207); and, more occasionally, in summer from Kalamata (5 hrs).
These last two routes continue on to Kisamos (T.28210 28217 & 24147) in eastern Crete, from which there is the same frequency of return connections.
There are also weekly connections with Piraeus by ferry all through the year, and by hydrofoil in the summer months.
Most boats now dock at the new
port of Diakofti on the east coast of the island, 31km from the island’s capital, Kythera Chora.
