Sitting alone in the crystalline waters of the Aegean Sea, equidistant from the coasts of Crete and the Peloponnese region of Greece, is the small island of Antikythira. This rugged kite-shaped outcrop of land is sparsely populated and almost entirely covered in Mediterranean scrubland that rises over its steep hills and rocky cliffs that line the shore.
Due to its prime location between Africa and Europe, Antikythira is a natural rest-stop for migratory birds travelling overseas. The island is also the world’s largest breeding ground of the elegant Eleonora's falcon and has become an important research outpost for those studying the species.
The port of Antikythira is found to the north of the island. The passenger terminal here consists of a pier that sits at the base of a narrow inlet of the ocean, just along from a small, hill-top marina.
A number of Lane Sea Lines services leave from the port throughout the week, heading to a variety of destinations. Three services sail towards the Greek mainland, stopping at the island of Kythira, the south-coast town of Gythion and the city of Piraeus further north. Another service travels in the opposite direction, following a route that spans the glittering Antikythira strait to the town of Kissamos on the north-western peninsula of Crete.
