Folegandros Thira Ferry reviews

  • "Sea Jet 2 Folegandros to Santorini"

    Very quick smooth crossing in a clean and comfortable vessel aided by pleasant, helpful, and well organised crew. Boat was about 50 minutes late as there had been high winds for several days although things had calmed down on our day of travel. Slight anxiety caused as we had a tight flight connection to make which proved not to be a problem. All in all, a very pleasant passage but felt more like an aeroplane trip than a boating one.

  • "excellent"

    Even if the sea weather was not good, the ship left the port. I have to give my compliments to the captain to let me have a nice trip. Efficient kind staff on board.

Folegandros Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Folegandros lies in the Aegean Sea and forms the Cycladic island chain along with the islands of Sikinos, Ios, Anafi and Santorini. It is a fairly small island, measuring around 32 sq. km, and has around 760 inhabitants who primarily live in three villages: Chora, Karavostasis, which is also the island's port, and Ano Meria. For visitors to the island looking for a vantage point to take in the island's magnificent scenery then the Church of Panaghia is located on the top of a hill and offers great views of Chora and the island's west coast. There are a number of great beaches on the island but visitors should note that all of them are fairly difficult to reach. Some can be reached after a bit of a walk whereas others can only be accessed by boat. The two beaches that can be reached by car are the beaches at Karavostasi and Angali.

The island can be reached by conventional ferry, Highspeed ferry or Flying Dolphin from Piraeus, Rafini, the other islands of the Cycladic islands, Crete, Rhodes and the rest of the Dodecanese islands and the East Aegean Islands. Travel times vary depending on destination and ferry type but journey times range from 3.5 hours to 11 hours. The island's harbour, Karavostasi, has a few shops and restaurants for visitors to enjoy.
