Best way to get from Mykonos to Santorini

Mykonos ● Santorini ● 21 January 2018

Greek islands have the amazing asset that they are located in a very short distance to each other, especially in the Cyclades. That means that you can easily have the ultimate experience of the Greek Island Hopping during your summer vacation in Greece. What is exactly this experience? You can jump from one island to another and see as many islands as you want travelling from one destination to the other in less than 2 hours. Thus, you can explore more places, more popular or untouched islands and stay on each island for a few days before packing your stuff to visit another beautiful place!

Two of the most famous islands, which are being chosen by thousands of travellers and are on the top of the list during the island hopping in Greece, are Mykonos and Santorini. Mykonos is the ultimate party and luxury island, with thousands of bars and cosmopolitan corners to see and to be seen, while its Chora and its beaches are just gorgeous, the epitome of Cycladic beauty. Santorini is something totally different, a romantic destination at the edge of the caldera, a stunning whitewashed world hanging above the volcano and offering you pictures that can't be described by words. If you are in Mykonos and you want then to travel to Santorini, which is the best and most affordable way for this route?


From Mykonos to Santorini, you can't get by aeroplane, unless you want to spend much money and many hours on the road. There is no direct flight between these islands, so you have to make a stop in Athens. Sometimes, you may have to spend the night in a hotel in Athens.

However, the distance between Mykonos and Santorini is short, and you don't need an aeroplane to get quickly to your destination. By boat, you need 3 hours and by ferry, less than 2 hours. The problem is that especially by ferry you have to book your tickets early (even 2 months before departure), and the prices can be quite expensive.

Thus, the best way to get from Mykonos to Santorini is to book the Greek Island Pass (click here). With Greek Island Pass, you pay the price of only one ticket, but you can do many routes (up to 7) between the Cycladic islands. Thus, you can travel from Athens to Mykonos and then to Santorini and then to another island of the Cyclades or back to Athens. And all of these paying a very low price that makes the island hopping affordable for everyone. Plus, you don't have to worry about booking early the ferry tickets. With this island pass, you can travel from one island to another by ferry anytime you want with the greatest flexibility you can find in a ferry pass.
