How to find your ferry in the port of Mykonos (Tourlos Port)

All the ferries from Mykonos depart from the New Port of Mykonos, also known as Tourlos. It is located 2 km from Mykonos Town and is small in size, so spotting your ferry is very easy.
Don't get lost! Get our Mykonos Port Map.

The port of Paros which receives all ferries is located in Parikia, the island’s capital.

Both islands are popular among Greeks and foreigners alike. The high number of visitors induces traffic within and around the port, so being at the port at least an hour earlier than your ferry’s departure is strongly recommended.

Luggage storage in one of the ferries

Luggage storage

Luggage policies in ferries are quite flexible.
Most companies allow 40 kg or 0.5 cubic meters of luggage for each passenger and provide a luggage storage area in each ferry. Alternatively, you can keep your luggage in the lounges or on deck (if available).
We recommend leaving bulky suitcases in the designated area and taking your personal items (wallet, keys, etc.) with you upstairs.


Traveling with a car

Vehicule garage in one of the ferries


A special vehicle ticket is required in order to transfer your car (or motorbike) to Paros.
Car owners should arrive at the port at least 60 minutes before the official time of departure.
For safety reasons, entering the garage while the ferry is sailing is forbidden.
Note: Many car rental companies do not allow customers to ferry their vehicles. We recommend avoiding purchasing a vehicle ticket before contacting your car rental company.


Alternative ways to reach Paros


Although there are airports on both islands, no direct flights are available between Mykonos and Paros. Under these circumstances, an alternative way to travel to Paros is flying to Athens and then to Paros with another flight or boarding a ferry from Piraeus Port or Rafina Port. Find out more about the Athens - Paros route.
Santorini’s airport is international, so it receives flights from several European cities. Thus, you can reach Santorini directly from abroad and board a ferry to Paros after. Additionally, Naxos and Milos boast an airport each and receive flights from Athens International Airport. Hence, you can fly to Athens and then to Naxos or Milos. Both islands are connected via ferry with Paros, with routes being frequent during summer.
