Ferries to Naxos
from Athens port of Pireaus to Naxos are frequent, sometimes as
many as half a dozen a day during the
summer but generally two or more. That is because Naxos is on the same ferry line as Santorini which is good news if you are going there too but bad news if you are not. It is the most likely ferry to be full though this is usually not a problem except in July and August and maybe Easter and the 3-day holiday weekend that comes 40 days after Easter called Agios Pnevmatos. The
cost is about 30 Euros for a seat on the regular ferry (like the Blue Star) and the length of the trip
does not require a cabin. The ferry takes
about 6 hours. The Hellas Ferries High-speeds are catamarans and take about 4 hours to get between Naxos
and Pireaus and cost about 45 euros. Normally there are several departures at 7:30 am every day
and then a high-speed and ferry at around 5pm but these things change. Most ferries and
high-speeds that visit Naxos do this route: Paros-Naxos-Santorini
and sometimes Ios. This means that if you are island hopping
these will be the easiest islands to get to. In the summer there are a couple high-speeds that go to Mykonos, Paros, Santorini, Crete and maybe another island or two but just so you know they don't take cars. There are also boats that originate in Syros that go to all the Cyclades Islands and they stop
in Naxos several times a week and connect it with other islands like Sifnos, Milos, Amorgos and some islands you have never heard of. But these boats do a different route every day. There are also local ferries that go to the Small Cyclades. There are also daily
excursion boats to Santorini, Mykonos
and Delos which you can find out about
from Despina at the Naxos Tourist
