Kythera is reachable by air, land and sea but while there, it is worthwhile having your own means of transportation

There are two ways to reach Kythera with one’s own car or motorcycle: by boat from Piraeus or via the shuttle ferry that makes the connection Neapoli Veion in Laconia – Kythera. On the island there are many rental car agencies offering car or motorcycle choices.

Another way to reach Kythera is getting by bus to Githio or Neapoli and from there catching the local ferry boat to the island. The distance from Athens to Githio is about 5 hours and 7 hours to Neapoli, plus another hour for the crossing to Kythera.

Finally, it is important to mention that the island has one of the best regional airports in Greece, and the duration of the flight from Athens to Kythera is 45’. If you own your own sailing boat, you may moor at the main island port at Diakofti, at Agia Pelagia and Kapsali, which serves only as a marina for leisure boats.
