Naxos port

Below, you can find all the needed information about the port of Naxos:

The main port of Naxos is situated on the western side of the island, in the main town (Chora), near the signature local landmark - Portara.
Its location is very convenient since the Town area is full of all kinds of tourist facilities.

It is one of the busiest Cycladic ports. During the high season, it can serve around 25 passenger ferries per day, as well as yachts and other vessels.

Daily ferry crossings connect the port of Naxos to numerous other destinations, including Athens (Piraeus, Rafina and Lavrio ports), Santorini, Mykonos, Paros, Syros, Crete (Heraklion) and more.
Blue Star Ferries, SeaJets, Fast Ferries, Small Cyclades Lines and Minoan Lines are the ferry companies that operate these routes, using either conventional ferries or modern high-speed vessels. Daily ferry crossings to most destinations are available during the summer season and at least a few times a week during the off-season months.


Transportation options

KTEL Buses

For those traveling on a budget, KTEL buses are the best way to move around. The bus terminal station lies outside the port. From there, you can take a bus to numerous other locations around the island. You can purchase your ticket at the ticket office.
Keep in mind that several bus routes are only seasonal. There is luggage storage underneath all KTEL buses, which you can use free of charge.


Another option is to get a taxi. It is fairly easy to find one since a taxi rank is located at the port, although availability may be limited during the high season, so you may have to wait a while. Taxis can get you anywhere, but the longer the ride is, the higher the price will be.
Pre-arranged private transfers are always better than searching for a taxi and hoping for the best. Check out our transfer booking engine and insert any pick-up and drop-off location to have a driver waiting for you as soon as you arrive.

Car Rentals

Alternatively, renting a car or other vehicle is not only one of the most convenient ways to get away from the port, but you will also be able to use it for the rest of your vacation to get to any place you wish without having to rely on buses or taxis.
