How to get to Naxos
You can choose to come either by plane or by boat.
Coming by air-plane
we have only National flights from Athens Airport, every day during high season, but book in advance as we have the small 40 seat aircrafts only!
If you decide to go by boat:
. The best way to come to Naxos is to flight to Santorini or Mykonos and get the first ferry to Naxos. It takes 2-3 hours and there are quite many daily connections.
. Most common route is Pireaus -> Paros -> Naxos, if your flight is from Athens. However, some ferries make a stop at Syros as well before getting to Paros and Naxos.
. From Rafina Port there are Catamaran ferries that do not carry vehicles and High Speed boats that can carry vehicles.
. The High Speed that takes 4 hours and the Blue Star takes approximately 5:15 hours.
There are several other ferries that connect Naxos to other islands like Crete, Ikaria and Samos as well as big ports of Greece like Thessaloniki. Such trips are usually once a week, depending on the season.
We recommend a rented car for your daily excursions on the island as to the nearby beaches! The public bus is not convenient to move around the island. If you are travelling in high season we recommend to book your car in advance as it is difficult to find. We can arrange your car rental and pick it up either at the port on your arrival or at Faros.
