Glyfa ferry port in Greece connects you with Skiathos in Sporades Islands with a choice of up to 14 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Glyfa to Skiathos crossing is from 2 hours 15 minutes and the crossing is operated by Anes Ferries.
On a small, hilly peninsula to the south-east of Greece, on the coast of a bay overlooking an ultramarine stretch of the Aegean Sea known as Steno Artemisiou, is the quaint village of Glyfa. It’s a quiet community found in a niche between a landscape of rolling hills mottled by the deep greens of Mediterranean shrubs, trees and farmland. From the village’s seafront promenade, where the warm waters of the south-facing bay gently lap against the sidewalk, one can see the undulant hills of the Edipsos region marking the horizon.
The ferry port in Glyfa is found on a small landing to the south-east of the village and should not be confused with the L-shaped pier, home to a private marina, further along the promenade. There are no facilities here, though a few cafés selling hot food and drinks can be found nearby.
The main route into Glyfa is via the E75 motorway that runs along the village outskirts and stretches for over 300-miles along the eastern edge of Greece, from the capital of Athens in the south to the city of Thessaloniki in the north. Due to the narrow clutch of streets that weave between the balconied apartments downtown, there is no public transport system in Glyfa, nor is there any form of train route. It is therefore recommended that those heading to the port travel by car or on foot.
Only one ferry route currently operates from the port. An Anes Ferries line sails the short distance east to the island and town of Skiathos a number of times throughout the week. It’s a route that takes passengers out from the mouth of the Steno Artemisiou strait and into the deeper waters of the Aegean Sea.
