Astypalea in detail

Getting Around

Astypalea’s airport is on the flat, narrow 'neck' of the island, 8km northeast of Pera Gialos. Buses connect with flights in summer, while taking either of the island's two taxis to Pera Gialos costs around €12. In June to September, Astypalea Tours offers both airport and port shuttles (around €5 per person).

Summer buses also link Pera Gialos with Hora and Livadi to the west, and Analipsi/Maltezana to the east, stopping at beaches en route (€2).

There are several recommended vehicle-rental agencies, including Vergoulis and AstyCar, both based in Pera Gialos.
