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.

Testimonials

  • There isn’t a part of UCPA that I don’t enjoy, it’s some of the best holidays I’ve had and going to have.
    Peter E
  • The quality of the equipment is second to none and the ability to easily swap things over if they’re not quite right is so useful.

  • 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...

  • The food offers great variety, choice (several options each night), quantity (as much as you want) and quality is decent.  Cheese and yoghurts coming out of your ears, packed lunch option, afternoon tea and cake and you can drink your own wine at dinner.

  • 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...

  • The food provided was up to a very good standard for all meals with a soup starter available every dinner followed by two or three hot meal choices, a salad bar and a variety of tasty deserts and fruit.
