Less busy is the port of Rafina, which is located on the north eastern side of Attica. This is the closest port to the airport of Athens and there are frequent buses from the airport to Rafina. All year round, there are ferries from Rafina to Andros, Tinos and Mykonos, while in summer there are ferries from Rafina to Paros, Naxos, Santorini and other islands of Cyclades. From Rafina, there are also ferries to Marmari Evia.
