Psara Ferry Port
Psara is a Greek island off the east coast of Greece’s mainland, lying in the Aegean Sea. The ferry routes departing the port are to other islands belonging to Greece, with crossings to Chios and Piraeus ranging from 2 hours 20 minutes to 5 hours 15 minutes.
What is there to do in Psara?
Honest fishermen, one ATM machine and only one small settlement – few places in Europe are as wonderfully simplistic as Psara. The port and fishing industry offer the sole production after the rocky, jagged landscape proved too difficult to cultivate crops, and the relative distance between neighbouring islands means that Psara has remained largely untouched by tourism. Sparsely populated areas and welcoming locals make the island perfect for anyone hoping to escape the stresses of the modern world, especially in the summer when the sun shines down on the golden sands and azure blue waters.
Sunbathing and walking are the only two viable pastimes available on Psara, though if you’re looking for peace and tranquillity then that’s all you need. Many choose to grab a bottle of water, put on their hiking shoes and begin exploring the exotic lands, finishing their day by watching the sunset on top of the towering hillside. After a day of fairly strenuous exercise, the restaurants will satisfy any hunger with the exquisite seafood dishes that have become well known around Greece.
How do you get around Psara?
There are no rental car companies and only one petrol station on the island, so travelling in a car can prove quite troublesome. Most choose to walk or cycle.
