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.
Kissamos, also known as Kastelli Kissamou, is a small town and municipality in the west of the Greek island of Crete, at the northwest end of the island. The city is now also a port and fishing harbour, with a regular ferry operating from the Peloponnese via Kythira.
On first sight, Kissamos doesn’t look like a town full of fascinating things to do, but the truth is quite opposite. Kissamos is actually a town surrounded by beautiful landscape with excellent climate and sunshine most of the year. The town is built along a wonderful sandy beach and located where the ancient city of Kissamos stood. With its attractive little harbour, lots of shops and cafeterias along the seafront, a long history and a lively atmosphere, this small town is actually quite a busy place.
However, Kissamos is not a busy tourist resort. Its development is mainly based on its wine and oil production, as well as its agricultural products.
