Until 2000, Karystos had a ferry boat which connected the harbour to Rafina; today this line is served by the port of Marmari. In recent years the harbour of Karystos has expanded by giving the place of the town’s old shipyard to a new marina. The new harbour offers a safe mooring place for Yachts, Sailing boats, Fishing boats, ferries and cargo ships.
In the quays’ entrance you can see the monument of ‘‘The Unknown Sailor”. The bronze statue stands tall to remind us of the naval tradition of Karystos nad the locals’ family members lost at sea.
Plenty of restaurants, picturesque tavernas and ouzeri, cafes and pastry shops operate around the harbour. The sea bank promenade is a wonderful place to wander around, especially in the afternoons.
