The island of Andros successfully combines the cosmopolitan character of a contemporary resort with strong cultural values, history and deeply rooted local traditions. Andros is a versatile location providing several enticing options to every visitor.
The island of Andros is very close to Athens. Access to the island is quick and easy from the port of Rafina, in the northeast of Athens.
Rafina is also situated very close to the Athens International airport. You can reach the port both from the Airport and the center of the city using taxis or the many bus routes available.
The journey from Rafina to the main port of Andros, Gavrio, is a two-hour trip by ferry. Gavrio is the first port of call for all vessels departing from the busy port of Rafina with Mykonos Island as their final destination.
