Opposite the south eastern tip of the Greek Peloponnese peninsula, the islands of Kythera  and Anti-Kythera have long been places of exile and pirate caves. They still remain  resistant  to the ferocious spread of mass tourism that’s  marred many of the other Greek islands.

Kythera, the island where Aphrodite was born,  reveals its true essence to the reflective traveller.  Walking misty tracks with long abandoned ruins, surrounded by   calm or stormy seas, gentle breezes or forceful winds, visitors are led to  hidden beaches and caves tiny villages and historic monuments.   

A drift   at sea 38 kilometres from Kythera, lies the time forsaken island of Anti- Kythera.  Overlooked by  run-of-the-mill tourists, Antikythera  remains  unyielding to the modern desire  for  comfort travel. Instead it rewards the adventurous with an unadulterated milieu  of simple living and a fascinating past.
