Ferries to Saronic Islands

The Saronic archipelago comprises five stunning islands just off the coast of Athens, Greece.

They have everything you need for a fantastic holiday; exquisite beaches, fascinating monuments and upmarket resorts.

Aegina is the most popular, with a number of luxury family-friendly hotels. Poros is great for water sports, Hydra and Spetses boast wonderful ancient architecture and elegant mansions, whilst Agistri makes an ideal serene getaway.

One of the most remarkable structures is the Temple of Aphaia on Aegina, which features tall, magnificent pillars on a pine-covered hill. Archaeologists claim it was built in 480BC to celebrate a local deity from pre-Hellenic times.

6km east of Aegina Town is Paleohora, the awe-inspiring remains of a hillside Byzantine village site, comprising over 30 church ruins.

Hydra is a unique place, with no cars or bicycles allowed on the island. Be sure to visit the Kimisis Tis Theotokou Cathedral in the west, a stunningly decorated 17th Century cathedral close to the harbour. There is also a small museum displaying various religious artefacts and vestments.

Stroll along Spetses’ northeast district of Dapia for great views of the Anargyros Mansion, which was owned by a benefactor in the early 20th Century. In the main town, you can ride a horse-drawn carriage through the gorgeous scenery, making the perfect romantic setting.

The Saronic Islands are easily reachable by ferry from the Greek mainland, with frequent high-speed crossings provided every day. You can sail from Ermioni, Piraeus and Porto Heli to any of the islands, depending on your departure terminal.

There are also fast and frequent crossings between the Saronic Islands themselves.

These routes are operated by Hellenic Seaways who offers award-winning ferry services.

Saronic Islands reviews

  • "Comfortable Trip to Hydra from Piraeus and return"

    The trip was made in the Seacat 5 and its sister ship Seacat 1. Both trips were very comfortable even though the trip out was at capacity. Refreshments were available on both trips. The schedule was slightly delayed on the way out but broadly on time on the return trip. I would recommend Direct Ferries for trips around the Greek Islands

  • "Ferry to Hydra"

    The ferry service to Hydra takes only 2hrs. which is great, the staff was very nice and helpful. It is very easy and comfortable way to get yourself across. I booked the trip couple of weeks ahead online but know people who just bought the ticket on the day of travels and that was in high season! The price is very reasonable too. I will definitely use the service again and recommend it to anyone who needs it. Thanks Hellenic Seaways!

  • "Flying dolphin 17 and Flyingcat 5"

    Lovely experience, especially in Flying dolphin number 17. However, in Flyingcat 5 the air conditioner was set too strong at too low temperature...everyone was freezing. So bring a sweater or a jacket and socks...
