Ferries from Crete to Gavdos

Gavdos is the southernmost Greek island and the southernmost point in Europe. The tiny island is home to only about 50 inhabitants year round. There aren't any hotels although there are limited numbers of rooms for rent. However, you might end up camping right on the beach.
Gavdos is located to the south of Crete and the only way to get to Gavdos is on ferry.
The ferries to Gavdos depart from two different ports: Paleohora (also spelled “Paleochora”) and Sfakia (also known as “Hora Sfakion”). The ferry between Paleochora and Gavdos takes 3 h 30 min while the ferry between Sfakia and Gavdos takes 1h 15 min.
The high season starts in June and ends in October. The following ferries connect the two islands during the 2010 high season:
