Begin your island getaway by flying to Athens, Greece, the major gateway to Astypalea. From most international airports, you can find direct flights to Athens.
Once you arrive in Athens, catch a domestic flight to Astypalea Island’s “Astypalaia Island National Airport” (JTY). Several domestic airlines operate regular flights, making it convenient to reach this tranquil paradise.
For a more scenic and adventurous journey, consider taking a ferry from Athens’ port, Piraeus, to Astypalea. Ferries are a popular option and offer the chance to witness the breathtaking beauty of the Aegean Sea.
The journey typically takes around 8-10 hours, depending on the type of ferry, providing ample opportunities to enjoy the sea breeze and captivating views along the way. Also, Astypalea is combined with other coastal lines from Dodecanese and Cyclades.
