Today, Gythion is a fishing port and among the attractive travel destinations in Greece. Its waterfront is backed by Turkish houses built on the steep forested hill behind. It is also a nice location for a stroll along the harbour or exploring the historic streets higher up, running parallel to the seafront. There are several fishing taverns serving fresh-caught traditional seafood.
Most of ancient Gythion is situated submerged below Lakonian Gulf, but there is an ancient theatre and overgrown acropolis.
Cruise ships to Gythion Greece are ancored in front the town's harbor and their passengers are transported via the ship's tender boats. Ancient Cranae is today the tiny Marathonisi Island. It is at 15-min walking distance from the harbour.
