Getting to ​​​Naxos


By Air: 
There is not an international airport in Naxos, so most people fly to Mykonos and take a short ferry from there. An alternative airport option is Athens where you can then take a domestic flight over to Naxos. These domestic flights can be very expensive if they are not booked in advance.

By ferry: The Mykonos to Naxos ferry route is operated by 3 ferry companies. SeaJets operate their crossing up to 6 times per day, Cyclades Fast Ferries 7 times per week & the Golden Star Ferries service is available up to 3 times per day. This takes about 30 minutes. The ferry from Athens to Naxos is a daily ferry that departs from Piraeus port, the main port of Athens. A normal ferry to Naxos takes about 5 hours to reach Naxos from Piraeus. There is also a ferry to Naxos from Rafina port, the other port of Athens, and the trip takes about 4 hours.

Testimonials

  • All UCPAs are very friendly and sociable. The bar and dining areas are open with big tables, encouraging people to sit together and get to know each other. This makes it very easy as a solo traveller.

  • The UCPA has its own bar which is slightly cheaper than anywhere else in the resort. It has a pool table, comfy seats and a good atmosphere.

  • Action Outdoors set up a personal group page and as a group leader, I did’t have to worry about taking everyone’s payments. Each group member is responsible to pay their own way through the group page directly to Action Outdoors. Win!

  • The food offers great variety, choice (several options each night), quantity (as much as you want) and quality is decent.  Cheese and yoghurts coming out of your ears, packed lunch option, afternoon tea and cake and you can drink your own wine at dinner.

  • The quality of the equipment is second to none and the ability to easily swap things over if they’re not quite right is so useful.

  • Having never used UCPA before I was not sure what to expect but the week I spent there was absolutely fantastic and I genuinely can’t wait to go back.

  • I love the system at UCPA where you can go as a group of friends, but still spend a full day out with other people right at your own level.

  • There is always a range of ages, nationalities, mixtures of solo travellers, couples, groups etc.  We have booked as a group of 6, a group of 36 (no joke) and even just me and my boyfriend – it works for all.
