From Athens to Santorini with stops: Greek Island Hopping with Island Pass

Ios ● Naxos ● Paros ● Santorini ● 09 October 2017

Getting from Athens to Santorini is a journey of about 7 hours by boat and 5 hours by ferry from Piraeus Port, but during the off-season, only the boat makes the route. However, you won't get bored because this journey is truly fascinating. Sea gulls all around you, the breeze on your face and Aegean Sea waiting to be explored.

Thus, it is much more interesting to do this trip by boat and not by aeroplane. You can visit for a couple of days Athens, and then take the boat to the wonderful volcanic island of Cyclades. Plus, you can do something more. Have the ultimate Greek Island Hopping Experience by stopping on the islands that are on your route to Santorini. The boat doesn't go directly to Santorini, but it makes a few stops to other islands that are located between Athens and Santorini. Have you ever wondered if you can do that? If you ask the information desk in the boat or a tourist office in Piraeus Port, they will tell you have to buy separated tickets if you want to make these stops and stay a few hours or days on another island. This was true until summer 2017, when Hostelbay Island Pass came and changed everything. Now, you can buy only one ticket and make all the stops you want to discover Cyclades on your way to Santorini. With our Greek Island Pass, island hopping is easier and more affordable than ever. With this Greek ferry deal, you don't have to buy separate tickets and pay a fortune to make a few stops on this unforgettable route from Athens to Santorini. You buy one, you pay only one ticket, but you can make up to 5 routes and visit up to 4 islands! Inter-Island Pass is the best and cheapest way to get from Athens to Santorini and visit all the islands on your route.

These are the Cycladic islands you should visit on your way to Santorini with Hostelbay Island Pass:


Paros is a typical island of Cyclades. Its main characteristics are two. Its vivid nightlife as the island is full of young people and its beautiful seaside town of Naousa Paros with its whitewashed houses, the narrow labyrinth-like pebbled streets, the elegant shops and the cozy bars.


Naxos is the largest Cycladic island. It will amaze you with its long sandy beaches with the turquoise waters, its delicious creative Greek cuisine, its traditional mountainous and seaside villages as well as its rich and long history that has as a result many significant ancient sites and museums.


Ios is also known for its wild nightlife, but it is also an island, where you can combine fun with relaxation. Ios has gorgeous beaches and a beautiful typically Cycladic Chora.
