Access to Agios Petros:

The best option to get around Andros is to hire a car (there are 3 rental agencies in Andros). Of course, there are frequent bus schedules to all the main destinations in Andros. Also you can call a taxi from the port.

The distance from Gavrio to Agios Petros Spot is 3 km and can be covered in 10-minute walk or a 2-minute drive; next to the main road leading from Batsi to Gavrio, shortly after the “Chryssi Ammos” (Golden Beach). Get there also by bus.

Access to Andros:

Arrival by Airplane: Andros does not have its own airport. If you are coming to Andros from the International Airport of Athens, in Spata, you can use the Green Public Bus (KTEL of Attica) to the port of Rafina. The bus departs from the Arrivals Level, between Gates 2 and 3, just opposite the hotel of the airport (Sofitel). The distance is 10 km (20 minutes). Otherwise you can catch a taxi to Rafina Port. Then travel to Andros by ferry boat.

Arrival by Ferry/Boat: A ferry to Gavrio, the main port of Andros located in the northwest side of the island, departs from the port of Rafina, on the northern side of Athens. There is no ferry to Andros from Piraeus, the main port of Athens. Rafina is the closest port to the International Airport of Athens. The ferry takes 2 hours to reach Gavrio.

There are daily ferries all year round, but schedules are more frequent in summertime (1-2 daily during winter and up to 6 in the summer). Andros is also connected with other Cyclades Islands by ferry boat, including Mykonos, Naxos, Paros, Syros, and Tinos.

Arrival by Car, Moto, Camper Van: By private car via Attica Avenue in the direction of Markopoulo, exiting at the sign that says Rafina. Drive along Marathonos Avenue until you reach Rafina. The distance from Athens to Rafina is 32 km.

Arrival by Bus: You can reach Rafina Port by Suburban KTEL bus from the Green Park in Athens.
