Cheap Ferries from Heraklion to Naxos

Heraklion to Naxos ferries depart from Heraklion’s port in the town of Heraklion, or Iraklion. Heraklion is the main town of Crete, Greece’s largest island. Naxos, in the Aegean Sea, is the biggest of the Greek Cyclades Islands. Naxos is one of the principal holiday destinations of the Cyclades group of islands.

Naxos has fertile verdant valleys with a backdrop of rugged mountains. Naxos has several ancient ruins, including the Portara, a gate dating back to the 6th century BC. Ferries arriving at Hora (Naxos) Harbour offer a view of the Portara. Hora features a labyrinth of alleys and whitewashed cottages and stately Venetian dwellings.

Naxos’ port is only a quick walk to the town. The town has buses from the ferry terminal that go to most parts of the island and apart from ferries to Heraklion and Piraeus, Naxos is also a hub for ferries to other Greek and Cyclades islands.

Heraklion, the embarkation point for the Heraklion to Naxos ferry, is easily reached because it is in a central position on the Cretan road network. The port is beside the main road that travels along the northern coast of Crete and is also the beginning point for the Heraklion Timbaki Highway, which links Heraklion to Crete’s southern coast.
