Thira Folegandros Ferry reviews

  • "A tad rough but comfortable seating"

    I booked out tickets on line from home in London. The port was not too busy (probably because it is end of season late September and boarding once the ferry came in was quick. Our ferry left 10 mins late from Santorini and arrived on time into Ferangandros. The seating was spacious and comfortable, the cabin air conditioned so i should have taken a little jacket . No one was allowed on deck. for safety reasons. The trip was 55 minutes and as the weather was "strong winds" it was a little rough. Good safety briefing and crew on hand should I have had any questions. The crew also helped me on and off with my bag as they could see I was struggling a bit.We had stanard economy seating and indeed the better class of travel was above us and therefore more susceptible to the rocking of the boat on rough seas. I cannot comment on the catering or the state of the lavatories. I would recommend Seajets.

Thira Guide

Thira is the official name of the island of Santorini, Greece and is located in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km southeast of mainland Greece.

Thira is essentially what remained after an enormous volcanic explosion that destroyed the earliest settlements on a formerly single island, and created the current geological caldera.

With its dramatic views, stunning sunsets and beautiful beaches, it is no surprise that Thira is hugely popular with holidaymakers.

Folegandros Guide

The Greek island of Folegandros is part of the Cyclades group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea. The island, who derives its name from the son of King Minos, is popular with visitors who like its unspoilt beaches, crystal clear waters and traditional architecture. Popular attractions on the island include the whitewashed Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary which overlooks the town of Hora, or Chora, and is reached by walking along a stone path. It is said that the church was built on the site of an ancient temple and contains ancient inscriptions and statues. The silver plated icon of the Virgin Mary, which according to tradition is miraculous, is paraded around the town in a procession that takes place every year on Easter Sunday.

The island's harbour is located at Karavostasis which is the perfect departure point for trips to the beaches of Vitzetzo, Hohlidia, Livadi and Pountaki. From the port there are ferry departures to the port of Piraeus, Rafini, the other islands of the Cyclades, the Dodecanese islands, Crete and Rhodes.
