How To Get To Naxos

How To Get To Naxos
September 10, 2019


Naxos is very easy to get to by ferry with frequent trips running daily. If you are flying in from Athens, catch a ferry from Piraeus to Naxos with SeaJets, Hellenic Seaways, or Blue Star Ferries which all take between 3-4 hours. If you are visiting during high season, book your tickets a few weeks in advance.


Naxos has an airport 3km south of town center. Budget airlines offer cheap flights from Athens and to other islands in the Cyclades.


Taxis are available on Naxos as well as frequent buses that run from Naxos town to the other villages. The bus departs every 30 minutes from the port (close to the tourist information center) which goes to Prokopios, Agia Anna, and Plaka.


If you are planning on exploring a lot of the island, it may be easiest to rent a car, quad bike, or motorcycle. Car rentals cost around $60/day but you get a better rate if you book for the week. I use Skyscanner to find the cheapest rental options. You can find rental agencies for the quad bikes and motorcycles along the waterfront but you will need a valid license to rent.

“Absolutely amazing experience!”
What can I say other than this was the best experience ever! The Annabella is a beautiful sailboat with an awesome Captain George! We did the Panteronissia Islands, Holed Cave/snorkeling and stopped for lunch on our way home. George was so friendly, informative and just fun to be around. I would highly recommend this to anyone who goes to Naxos and is looking for a fun-filled and adventurous day trip.
