How to travel


The most comfortable and easiest way to reach the Island is by plane. Less than 40 minutes separate Athens from Milos. By chosing this mode of transportation, I will have the opportunity to spend as much time as possible on the island, instead of on getting to it. The plane which covers the route to Milos has 37 seats. In the summer time there are 2 flights per day, but I have to take into account that in such a period of high demand tickets are hard to find, so I have to plan ahead early.

The company, which guarantees the safety and functionality of my air travel to and from Milos, is Olympic Air.


If I prefer to travel to Milos by ferry, I have a lot of options.
Various types of ships are available almost 24 hours a day and they connect Milos with Athens and Crete, and also with other islands through inter-Cycladic routes. Also, there are daily routes serving Santorini and Sifnos.

There is variety of options depending on the duration of the trip, the type of ship, time of arrival or departure of each company and of course the ticket price. The route from Athens to Milos will take from 2 hours and 30 minutes up to 8 hours (depending on the ship I choose and the calls to different ports it makes). For the route from Milos to Crete (Heraklion) I need 9 hours, and from Milos to Santorini depending on the ship, 1.5 to 4 hours.
Milos is also linked by ferry to: Serifos, Kythnos, Paros, Naxos, Syros, Kimolos, Folegandros, Koufonisia, Ios, Anafi, Sikinos, and Agios Nikolaos and Sitia in Crete.

Moreover, there are many swift routes to choose from on a daily basis to get to the neighboring island of Kimolos, taking the ferry boat from Pollonia.
