Athens to Milos – Ferry Essentials

  • is the best way to buy ferry tickets for Athens to Milos ferries. It’s also good for researching ferry timetables, costs, and schedules.
  • Most ferries do not sell out. But for peace of mind, book tickets 2 to 3 months in advance.
  • Most tickets (when booked through Ferryhopper) are e-tickets which means you do not have to pick up a paper ticket before boarding.
  • If a ticket purchased online doesn’t have a barcode that usually means you’ll need to pick up a real ticket when in Greece. This is most often done at the ferry port 30 to 45 minutes before departure. Don’t worry about pick up – it’s easy and effortless and usually very close to your actual ferry.
  • Ferries will leave on-time from their first departure port in the morning (usually large ports like Piraeus, Heraklio, and Rhodes) but will be late arriving and departing from all onward ports (e.g. Naxos). Usually getting later as the day progresses.
  • Most areas in Greece, including Athens and Milos, have public transportation strikes throughout the year. These strikes can affect all forms of transit, including, buses, trains, ferries, flights, and taxis. During strikes no buses, no ferries, and only a handful of trains and flights will depart on time (or at all); taxis tend to be the least affected mode of transport. Though strikes can occur any time, there is always a huge strike on May 1. Avoid booking any ferries, flights, or trains that day.

  1. Ferries to Milos

    Hi Dave! Do you know if there is an Athens to Milos ferry in April, or the reverse? Trying to plan our return visit, but hard when I don’t have ferry info. Also, we would like to visit Mykonos from Athens, and Milos from Mykonos (or the reverse). Am I correct in assuming there will be at least one Athens to Mykonos ferry a day, but in order to get to Milos from Mykonos, I will have to ferry to Santorini first?


    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      There will be ferries from Athens to Milos, Milos to Athens, Athens to Mykonos, and Mykonos to Athens every day of the week. Getting between Mykonos and Milos will be dependent on the ferry schedule for Spring. But it will likely involve transferring at a third island and might not be possible every day of the week.
