#4 Tips for the ferry connection to Gavdos


There are often strong winds on the sea passage between Crete and Gavdos - especially during the winter season. It can therefore often happen that the ferry cannot start. From a wind force of 6 Beaufort, the ferry cannot be given permission to start. This applies both close to the coast on Crete and further out on the Libyan Sea. You should therefore always check a few weather apps in advance. The final decision as to whether the ferry will go or not is usually made in the morning shortly before departure (approx. 1 hour). Decisions are announced via the Anendyk website (https://anendyk.gr/) or on the Anendyk social media channels (Instagram and Facebook) via the story functions.


For campers and motorists, the ferry usually offers enough space to take the vehicle, even large campers or trucks. Except on Greek holidays or special occasions, the ferry can be very full and a reservation for your own vehicle is essential (as well as during peak season). The rule here is "first come, first served". Please note that there is no gas station on Gavdos. The tank should therefore be filled up beforehand. There is a petrol station in Chora Sfakion, which is open all year round, as well as in Paleochora.



Enjoy your trip to Gavdos :)
