Ferries to Saronic Islands

The Saronic archipelago comprises five stunning islands just off the coast of Athens, Greece.

They have everything you need for a fantastic holiday; exquisite beaches, fascinating monuments and upmarket resorts.

Aegina is the most popular, with a number of luxury family-friendly hotels. Poros is great for water sports, Hydra and Spetses boast wonderful ancient architecture and elegant mansions, whilst Agistri makes an ideal serene getaway.

One of the most remarkable structures is the Temple of Aphaia on Aegina, which features tall, magnificent pillars on a pine-covered hill. Archaeologists claim it was built in 480BC to celebrate a local deity from pre-Hellenic times.

6km east of Aegina Town is Paleohora, the awe-inspiring remains of a hillside Byzantine village site, comprising over 30 church ruins.

Hydra is a unique place, with no cars or bicycles allowed on the island. Be sure to visit the Kimisis Tis Theotokou Cathedral in the west, a stunningly decorated 17th Century cathedral close to the harbour. There is also a small museum displaying various religious artefacts and vestments.

Stroll along Spetses’ northeast district of Dapia for great views of the Anargyros Mansion, which was owned by a benefactor in the early 20th Century. In the main town, you can ride a horse-drawn carriage through the gorgeous scenery, making the perfect romantic setting.

The Saronic Islands are easily reachable by ferry from the Greek mainland, with frequent high-speed crossings provided every day. You can sail from Ermioni, Piraeus and Porto Heli to any of the islands, depending on your departure terminal.

There are also fast and frequent crossings between the Saronic Islands themselves.

These routes are operated by Hellenic Seaways who offers award-winning ferry services.

Saronic Islands reviews

  • "Communication "

    I call three times and had a wonderful experience with the English speaking operator. The only constructive criticism that I have is that when I arrived at the port there wasn’t any indication on my ticket or communication in general as to where I would pick up my boat. This was of course stressful prior to boarding. I would use Saronic again as the rest of my journey was great. Any suggestions as to how i would find this information in the future?

  • "Agistri to Aegina"

    Very short trip but was a pleasure to see such big ferry is smoothly moving. They were in time.

  • "On-line booking confusion!"

    This was the only ferry crossing I booked on-line, from Poros to Aegina, and when I went to the ticket office to get my ticket, there was some confusion with codes and I had to go early on the morning to get it. Not a real problem but involved phone calls to the ferry company etc in the evening. Hassle! Much easier to buy ticket at the office! All ferries and flying dolphins were punctual, clean and comfortable. Staff very helpful.
