Mykonos to Naxos Ferry

The Mykonos Naxos ferry route connects two of the most visited destinations in the Cyclades Islands and is widely available to book throughout the year. There are currently 3 ferry operators running this service from Mykonos to Naxos. SeaJets offer up to 3 crossings per week, Cyclades Fast Ferries offer just crossing per week and Minoan Lines also offer 1 crossing per week during the height of tourist season. The distance between the Mykonos port and the Naxos port is approximately 21 nautical miles (39km), with SeaJets providing the fastest sailing time in 35 minutes. This short duration is what makes it such a popular route amongst tourists.

As the Mykonos ferry port is located only 4.5km from the main town, it’s easily accessible by taxi and public transport from anywhere on the island. The Seabus departs from the nearby town of Chora and takes passengers directly to the port for about £5. If you want a quicker alternative, look no further than a 24-hour private transfer service like Welcome Pickups. Before booking, please visit our accommodation page for the cheapest prices on hotels in Mykonos.

Please keep in mind that SeaJets only permit car transfers on certain ships from Mykonos to Naxos, especially during the low season. Therefore, we recommend booking with Cyclades Fast Ferries or Minoan Lines if you are bringing your own vehicle.

Mykonos Naxos Ferry reviews

  • "Be ready"

    It was windy and the ferry went to a berth 3 down from where specified on the ticket. Same company but a different boat name. No announcement. Luckily my partner decided to check it out. Had to run the length with luggage . Nice ride once on board.

  • "Very helpful"

    We accidentally got on the wrong ferry and the staff were really helpful and understanding.  On the second trip the vessel was slightly delayed but that was fine. We didn’t try the food.

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.

Naxos Guide

Naxos is a Greek island that lies in the Aegean Sea and is part of the Cyclades group of islands. The island has a rich and interesting history and has been ruled by a number of different civilisations during its history, including the Byzantine, Frankish and Venetians, all of which have left their mark on the island. The island has a flourishing agricultural economy thanks to its fertile terrain and visitors will see both olives and grapes being grown.

Popular attractions on the island, aside from its lovely beaches, tend to focus around Hora and include the Venetian Castle. Also popular with visitors are the island's villages, with one of the largest being Filoti which is situated next to Mount Zeus and Apiranthos which is next to Mount Fanari. Another popular way to spend time on the island is to take to one of the many trails on the island and to go hiking into the mountains.

The island's port is also located in Chora. From the port ferries depart to Piraeus (Athens) and to the other islands in the Cyclades.
