Thira Ios Ferry reviews

  • "Santorini to Ios"

    Great trip from Santorini - Ios, boat was over half an hour late on a 35m crossing but we didn’t mind that - seemed to be due to the busy port rather than the ferry company and the journey itself including the embarking and disembarking once in port was incredibly efficient.

  • "Excellent "

    Easy to book on line. I would say it needs to be clearer that the email confirmation needs to be swapped for proper tickets (easy to do once you realise). The seajet was spacious, comfy and speedy. We were pleased with how smoothly it all went. Be aware that embarking is very fast. They turn the boat around in 5 minutes! We would certainly travel this way again.

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.


Ios Guide

The Greek island of Ios is part of the Cyclades group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea between the islands of Santorini and Naxos. The island has a popular night economy, lovely beaches and a number of historical monuments which are popular with visitors. The island has been popular with tourists from around the world for many years and is definitely one of the most popular of the Cyclades islands. Chora is a typical Greek village on the island with traditional whitewashed buildings, winding streets and many colourful flowers. However, at night the sleepy village comes alive with many places to socialise.

Around the island there are many beaches with soft white sand just waiting to be explored, all of which are blessed with crystal clear waters. Perhaps the island's most popular beach is Mylopotas which is lined with bars, restaurants and places to hire water sport related equipment, and is over 1 km long. However, if you require a more secluded beach experience then Valmas or Kolitsani beaches are a good choice.
