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

General view of the new port of Mykonos (Tourlos)

The New Port of Mykonos (Tourlos) is where all passenger ferries depart from. The port is small and it will be easy to spot your vessel.
Don't get lost! Get our Mykonos Port Map.
From there, your ferry will head towards Athinios Port, the ferry port of Santorini.

In any case, make sure to arrive at the port at least 1 hour in advance since there is a lot of traffic. Especially if you are traveling in high season, keep in mind that both in Mykonos and in Santorini, you will encounter traffic congestion around the port and you should make sure you get there on time.

Luggage storage in the garage of the ferry World Champion Jet

Luggage storage in the World Champion Jet by Seajets

Most ferry companies in Greece are very flexible regarding luggage policies. They allow you to carry up to 40 kg or 0,5 cubic meters of luggage.
A designated storage area will be available, but you can also keep your luggage next to you on the vessel.
We recommend keeping your personal items with you and leaving the bulky baggage in the storage area.

Traveling with a car

Garage in the ferries

To bring your car or motorbike to Santorini, you need to book an additional ticket for your vehicle.
Drivers are expected to be at the port 60'-90' ahead of departure to park in the garage.
For safety reasons, you will not be allowed to enter the garage during the trip.
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 Santorini

There are no direct flights from Mykonos Airport to Santorini Airport, so in order to get from Mykonos to Santorini via plane, you will have to stop at the International Airport of Athens first.
You can also fly to the Greek capital and take the ferry from Athens to Santorini (Piraeus or Rafina).
To include more Cycladic destinations, get to Santorini by ferry indirectly by combining ferry routes via transit in Paros or Naxos.
