The Cyclades are located relatively close to Athens. They are reachable by ferry and by plane.
The port of Piraeus is the busiest port in Greece serving itineraries to the majority of Cyclades islands. The trip can be long for the remote Greek islands or short for the nearby destinations, always depending on the vessel and the weather conditions. The ports of Rafina and Lavrion, the other two ports of Athens, also serve ferry itineraries to the Cyclades.

Some islands of the Cyclades are also reachable by plane. What Cyclades islands have airports? The two main airports in the Cyclades are in Santorini and Mykonos, the two most popular Greek islands. Both these airports host domestic flights from Athens and Thessaloniki and also flights from abroad, in summer. Very busy is also the airport of Paros which welcomes also flights from abroad. Smaller airports that receive only domestic flights are found in Naxos, Milos & Syros. The International Airport of Athens serves flights to these Cycladic islands and the flight time is 45 minutes max.
Many people, in order to avoid Athens, take a flight to Santorini, Mykonos or Paros and then reach their destination by ferry.
