Access to Tsimari: Tsimari is located W of Antirrio and Messolongi and SE of Preveza.

Arrival by Car, Moto, Camper Van: In order to get to Tsimari from Central/South Greece, you have to drive with direction to Messolongi. From N/NW Greece first you have to reach Agrinio. There are some good highways, like the Corinth-Athens and the Athens-Larissa, Corinth-Tripoli and the Egnatia highway.

Access from Athens can be done either via Corinth and then passing through the Bridge or ferry Rio - Antirrio (total distance 279 km), either through Livadia and Itea after riding 363 km.

Access from Thessaloniki -Greece's second largest city, can be done either via Egnatia Motorway (Thessaloniki - Ioannina - Arta - Agrinio - Tsimari) from a route about 435 km, either through the National Road Athens - Lamia (Thessaloniki - Lamia - Amfissa - Nafpaktos - Tsimari) after driving 537 km.

The spot is about 86 km from Patra, 243 km from Igoumenitsa and 120 km from Arta.

Arrival by Airplane: There are flight connections to the nearest airport Action-Preveza, approx. 126 Km from the spot. In the summer, you can get a flight directly with charter planes from many countries. Winter is hard to get here.

Many travelers choose a flight to the new airport of Athens, “Eleftherios Venizelos”, one of the best airports in Europe (IATA: ATH, ICAO: LGAV). It is located in Spata Town and serves flights to Greece daily from many international airlines from all over the world. There are domestic flights to Aktion - Preveza Airport several times per week.
