Mykonos - Kythnos Ferry Operators

Mykonos Guide

Forming one of the Cyclades group of islands, the island of Mykonos lies between the islands of Tinos, Paros and Naxos. The main town on the island, also called Mykonos (or Chora to the locals), has typically Cycladic architecture on display with its white washed houses with painted blue windows, pretty narrow streets and pebble-stoned pavements and small white chapels with sky blue cupolas. Many visitors choose to simply take a stroll through Chora, the old port, Little Venice and the Castle to take in the charm of the town. The island in general has a lively nightlife and is sometimes referred to as the "Ibiza of Greece" as a result of its summer club scene which is a major draw for thousands of tourists each year.

The island has two ports. The old Mykonos harbour is where passenger ferries arrive and the New Port of Tourlos is where mostly cruise ships dock. Ferry services from Mykonos depart to Piraeus and Rafina on the Greek mainland and to the other islands in the Cyclades, the Dodecanese islands and to Crete. Conventional and high speed ferries operate to and from the island.


Kythnos Guide

Kythnos is a Greek island that is located very close to Attica and is part of the Cyclades group of islands. The island, sometimes called Thermia because of the thermal springs on the island, is one of the lesser visited islands of the Cyclades but is popular with visitors because of its thermal springs. There is a modern spa located in Loutra, with two hot springs in the area. The spring of Ayio Anargyroi and the spring of Caucasus, where the temperature of the water reaches 52C, are famous for their therapeutic effects and have been since ancient times.

The island's harbour is located at Merihas and the island's capital is called Hora and are both located in the north of the island. In the south, only the areas by the bay of Ayios Dimitrios and Panayia Canála are inhabited. This is where a famous monastery is located within a pine forest.

Ferry services from Kythnos depart to the Port of Piraeus or to the port of Lavrio. The crossing to Piraeus takes approximately 3 hours by conventional ferry and approximately one hour by high speed ferry. The crossing time to Lavrio takes about 2 hours. Kythnos is also connected by sea with the islands of Serifos, Sifnos, Milos, Santorini, Sikinos, Folegandros and Kea.
