Naxos Schinoussa Ferry reviews

  • "Speedy service"

    The flying cat from Naxos to Schinoussa was a speedy and enjoyable crossing. My only criticism is with the actual direct ferries website. They don't make it cler where you have to collect your ticket from because there is no ferry terminal for ticket colelction in Naxos. You have to go to the Hellenic Seaways main office on the main street in Naxos. It is is easy to find as it is on the coast opposite the harbour (so near the ferries) but if you didn't have much time you wouldn't have known this and could miss your ferry.

Naxos Guide

The Greek island of Naxos is part of the Cyclades group of islands that lie in the Aegean Sea. Naxos City, or Chora, is the island's largest town and capital and is built amphitheatrically on the island's west coast. It is also home to one of the biggest ports in the Aegean Sea. The town is popular with tourists and as a result there are many bars, restaurants and cafes to cater for them. The small island of Palatia, which extends from the mainland of Naxos, is the town's emblem. Located on the small island is Portara, which is a monument resembling a door standing alone, without any walls attached to either side. A visit to Portara is advisable, especially after your swim, whilst the sun is setting.

The island is also well known for its food and for producing the famous Naxian potatoes, wine, Kitron liquor productions and the popular cheese called Graviera. There are many restaurants located throughout the island serving local produce to the many tourists who visit.

From the island's port ferries depart to Piraeus (Athens) and to the other islands in the Cyclades.


Schinoussa Guide

The Greek island of Schinoussa is a small and remote island that lies in the Aegean Sea. It is located to the south of the island of Naxos and is part of the Small Cyclades group of islands, along with Koufonissia, Donoussa and Iraklia. The island's terrain is made up of a wild landscape and isolated beaches which are perfect for visitors seeking privacy, peace and tranquillity. The island does not have a wide range of tourist facilities but what it does have seems to be sufficient for the visitors it receives.

The island is easily accessible from Naxos which makes it the perfect destination for a day trip. A popular site on the island is the Church of Panagia Akathi in Chora, which is the island's most important church, and is considered the protector of the island. It's architecture is of typical Cycladic design, painted blue and white, and stands in the middle of the village.
