Santorini, the island of romance, is one of the top destinations for summer holidays in Greece. It is distinguished by its impressive caldera and volcanic landscape, as well as the incredible sunset views.
Being in the center of the Cyclades, holidays in Santorini can easily be combined by ferry with nearby destinations, like Mykonos, Milos and Folegandros, but also with more distant islands, such as Crete. Island hopping from Santorini is really smooth and comfortable, due to the very good ferry connection with other islands and the Greek mainland.
Island hopping from Santorini to Mykonos
Board a ferry from the charming island of Santorini and hop to the most cosmopolitan island of the Cyclades, Mykonos. Mykonos is known worldwide for its wild, never-ending party scene, exciting nightlife and wonderful scenery. Most beaches around the island are blessed with golden sand and clear waters, offering organized facilities and beach bars.
Enjoy your holidays in Mykonos in the famous Chora, the main village of the island, with whitewashed houses of typical Cycladic style and quaint narrow streets. In Chora, there are plenty of accommodation and entertainment options, exciting bars and nightclubs. Walk through Little Venice to enjoy a marvelous sunset and a lounge drink.
Like Santorini, the island of Milos also has a volcanic background, with extraordinary rock formations, spectacular natural caves and secluded coves. Not to miss in Milos is the lunar landscape of Sarakiniko and the amazing pirate caves of Kleftiko.
Island hopping from Santorini to Milos is very popular, as both islands are very romantic and quiet. In summer, frequent ferries connect Santorini with the scenic port of Adamas in Milos. Milos is renowned for the crystal sea, relaxing ambiance and the little fishing villages, like Klima, with the traditional architecture and boat garages.
Explore the wild natural beauty of Folegandros and its peaceful villages through island hopping from Santorini. The ferry to Folegandros from Santorini is daily in high season and the trip lasts about 2-3 hours. Despite the island’s proximity to the very popular islands of Paros and Santorini, Folegandros remains untouched from mass tourism.
This is the ideal destination for relaxation, swimming in wonderful beaches or hiking through wild hills. Visit the picturesque village of Chora to admire the magnificent view and impressive churches and swim in the gorgeous beaches of Agali and Katergo.
A great destination for island hopping from Santorini is Crete, the largest island in Greece. The unique character of Crete, the long history and diverse landscapes attract visitors of all ages and types. There are historical remnants of important historical periods, exotic beaches, deep gorges, verdant mountains and popular lively resorts to enjoy.
In summer, there is daily ferry connection between Santorini and the port of Heraklion in Crete. Heraklion is the largest port in Crete and a popular summer destination, famous for its busy nightlife and amazing ancient sites, such as the Minoan Palaces of Knossos and Phaestos, Medieval castles and Byzantine monasteries. Popular tourist resorts in Heraklion include Agia Pelagia, Matala, Malia and Hersonissos.
