We went by car. Be prepared for a walk down for half an hour and wear good walking shoes. Going up takes longer but if you do not like walking up the mountain you can take donkey taxi (although you will have to walk part of the road with stairs - donkey does not go this part). Go in the morning, when there are no people from the boats and enjoy this unique gem.
