Ferry to Gythion
Passengers travelling by ferry to Gythion arrive in a small town in the south of the peninsula Peloponnese, on the west end of the Ionian Gulf!
Travelling to the Destination Gythion
The town has the shape of an open-air theatre and is located at the foot of mount Larysio. Gythion features the most important harbour of the Laconian Gulf and the second most important of the southern Peloponnese (after Kalamata). The port is not only used as a ferry port when travelling to the destination Gythion but also as a commercial port for the shipping of oranges and oil. The southern edge of the town is linked to a little island, called Marathonisi (ancient Kranai), by a narrow pier. The Tzanetaki castle, a lighthouse and the small chapel of Agios Nikolaos are situated on the island.
Although it is not an island, that picturesque town conveys the feeling of being on one. Numerous fishing boats in the ports, plenty of fish restaurants, where you can enjoy a “Meze” (traditional starter dish consisting of Ouzo and octopus), wild and rough nature with deep blue waters and wide beaches, steep stairs and picturesque alleys as well as the characteristic regional architecture (buildings almost exclusively made of stone), enchant every visitor, who travels with ferries to Gythion. Before their departure with ferry from Gythion, visitors should visit the nearby place Mavrovouni. There are magnificent beaches and small fish taverns right beside the sea.
The ferry timetable Gythion includes ferry routes Gythion to Kythira, Antikythira, Kissamos and Crete. In the summer months many ferry operators offer trips to those islands.
