Getting to ​​​Naxos


By Air: 
There is not an international airport in Naxos, so most people fly to Mykonos and take a short ferry from there. An alternative airport option is Athens where you can then take a domestic flight over to Naxos. These domestic flights can be very expensive if they are not booked in advance.

By ferry: The Mykonos to Naxos ferry route is operated by 3 ferry companies. SeaJets operate their crossing up to 6 times per day, Cyclades Fast Ferries 7 times per week & the Golden Star Ferries service is available up to 3 times per day. This takes about 30 minutes. The ferry from Athens to Naxos is a daily ferry that departs from Piraeus port, the main port of Athens. A normal ferry to Naxos takes about 5 hours to reach Naxos from Piraeus. There is also a ferry to Naxos from Rafina port, the other port of Athens, and the trip takes about 4 hours.

  • UCPAs are like an upmarket hostel. However, they are always comfortable and if you want to meet people, the rooms of 4-6 are a great way of doing so. Even better is most of the UCPAs have some twin rooms...

  • Describing the UCPA is difficult. Not because there is a lack of adjectives to adequately convey the amount of fun you’ll have while you are there, the friendliness of the instructors, the quality of the food...
