Honeymoon September 2013 from BODRUM to SANTORINI

Dear forumadvisors,

I'm getting married in ending AUGUST 2013 and I expect to stay in BODRUM for 3/4 days during our honeymoon.

I'm planning my trip right now and I need any advice about the best way to get to santorini after leaving bodrum on Monday September 9, 2013.

I just need to know if I need to worry about this and accept to take a flight from bodrum to istanbul to athens ferry to santorini or it easy to make this trip by boat...i've read a lot about how tricky is this part of the trip and decided to secure this transfer in the most efficient way possible for a honeymoon.

Thank you,

WBertrand, congratulations and welcome to Turkey.

All you need to do is to take a hydrofoil or a ferry from Bodrum to Kos (Greek island) and take another Greek ferry from Kos to Santorini. You do not have to fly back to Istanbul and to Athens. You can buy your tickets for this trip when you arrive at Bodrum.

Perfect, based on your knowledge if I take a ferry from Bodrum to Kos will I be able to make this swich on the same day? How long take the trip between kos and santorini?

WBertrand, I do not know the Greek ferry schedules. But have a look at the following website for more info. "turkeytravelplanner.com/trans/Ship/domestic_…". You can also consult the Greek Islands Forums.

good luck,

Hi Bertrand,

The trip from Kos to Santorini by ferry will be a long trip.

You can check the ferries here:

http://www.greekferries.gr/

But it looks like at the moment the schedule for 2013 is not there yet.

You could also consider flying, even you fly over Athens you are there within a few hours with the right connecting flight.

Check out also this chat:

Good luck!
