Ferry Destinations

Greece is one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Europe.
Information on the different ferry destinations and the main routes from Athens to the Greek Islands including the Cyclades, Dodecanese, Crete and Aegean islands. Also links to ferry companies and online booking facilities.
Greece has over 2.000 islands, although only a small percentage are inhabited, and there is a huge amount of ferry travel within the country.
There are ferry routes to virtually all inhabited islands although some may run irregularly to the smaller islands. Most can be reached by direct ferry from one of the Athenian ports. Ferries will either do a fast run to the largest islands, or will take a slower route stopping at small and medium sized islands on the way. Some islands have ferry routes operating on a daily basis, others can only be reached every other day or less frequently depending on the season and the size of island. Islands within a group not served by the large ferry companies are interconnected by local ferries.

Cyclades, Dodecanese, Crete and all other Aegean islands

There are several ferry companies departing from the Attica ports with ferry routes serving these islands.


Ferries leave from Rafina and Lavrio ports for the southern part of the island of Evia (also known as Euboea). The island can also be reached by car, via a small bridge to the town of Chalkida (also known as Halkis) in the middle of the island.

Ionian Islands

There are no direct ferries from the Attica region. Ferries to the Ionian Islands depart from the west coast of the mainland which can be reached by road - bus or coach.

Island names

Many Greek islands are known by more than one name. Some of these names are used in English but not in Greek while for some islands two names are often used in Greek. Ferries and timetables often feature just one of the names and it may be useful for travellers to know both.
Kriti (Κρήτη) – Crete
Kerkyra – (Κέρκυρα) – Corfu
Mytilini (Μυτιλήνη) – Lesvos or Lesbos (Λέσβος)
Santorini (Σαντορίνη) – Thira (Θήρα)
Zakynthos (Ζάκυνθος) – Zante
Rodos (Ρόδος) – Rhodes
Evia (Εύβοια) – Euboea
