Milos to Naxos

I am going to Milos mid September for a few days which I am really looking forward to but after my stay there I would like to spend a few days on my beloved Naxos.

My question is will I get a connecting ferry or will I need to go via Santorini?

Thank you.

Do another search for your exact date but most ferries on this route are Seajet catamarans going via Santorini anyway

Hi,

It's a cross route, thus direct ferries are few (Seajet 2, NEL), by changing ferries on Santorini, Paros, Ios may give you more options.

Depends on how tight your schedule is and time of year, day of week.

You can sort it out by using these websites as always:

We used seajet from Milos to Naxos this June. It stopped in Folengaros and Ios and took about three hours in total as I recall. I did not stop in Santorini and it did run every day.

Here are some images of Milos to help you anticipate your trip.

They were taken over 2 separate trips and pretty much cover the island.

Hey I am planning that same trip in June. Did you find a ferry that goes from Milos to Naxos? I know there is the one Seajet ferry that leaves in the morning but if you connect in Santorini is there more options? I understand that's backtracking but I wanted to make sure I had a lot of time in Milos and would prefer leaving in the evening?

Hi Meggles

I have seen some recent comments on the forum that suggest the Milos to Naxos route is not being offered this summer. While that might change indeed the Milos Santorini then Santorini Naxos route may be the best option based on information currently available. Keep checking the Greek Ferry schedules.
