  • "Nice journey form Thira to Folegandros"

    Punctual ferry, nice trip with stops to differnt islands before arriving to Foleagandros; the sfaff was kind and competent; clean and spacious ship, our seats were comfortable. I woul improve the bar service because it was not well equiepped, especially if we talk about the food, a part from this it was a nice journey that I recommend.

  • "Santorini to Folegandros transfer"

    We purposely chose a conventional ferry rather than a quicker Sea Jet so that we could sit on deck, sunbathe, & take in the views. We were not disappointed and got to see another couple of small islands which we called into en route. The ship was very clean & tidy & the facilities were all excellent. The only downside was the 7.00 am sailing which necessitated a 5.00 am alarm

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.
