In summer, excursion boats run from Pothia to destinations including Kefalas Cave (€20), where an impressive 103m corridor is filled with stalactites and stalagmites; and the island of Pserimos, with its big, sandy beach and tavernas. Frequent water taxis also connect Myrties with Telendos Islet year-round.


Buses from Pothia harbour serve Myrties, Masouri and Armeos (€1.50, seven daily), Emporio (€2, two daily) and Vathys (€2, three daily). Check timetables at
