Skiathos Island (Nostos Beach)

Good evening fellow travelers 🙂

Has anyone traveled to Skiathos Island, Greece (Island in the Aegean Sea)? Curious if anyone has taken a flight from Skiathos to Santorini? If so which airline or ferry and was it easy? I will be going this August.

Also, from Athens airport to Santorini, how did you get there?

Will be first time to Greece and looking for any tips or advice on which website to take ferries to the different islands.

Thank you :)

Santorini is in the Cyclades islands while Skiathos is in the Sporades islands

There are no flights that will take you directly from Skiatyhos to Santorini or vice versa without passing through Athens, and there are no ferries that connect Athens and Skiathos

The majority of domestic flights Between Athens and the Greek islands with an airport are operated by Aegean/Olympic or Sky Express.
In summer there may be other possibilities to reach Santorini with low cost airlines like Volotea or Ryanair.
Skiathos and Santorini being international airports it is possible to occasionally find flights between these airports and a European city.

See on Skyscanner or Google Flight for flights.

You can also get to Santorini by ferry from Athens.

There are no flights OR ferries between Santorini and Skiathos. You will have to transit through Athens. There are no ferries from Athens to Skiathos. From Athens to Skiathos you will have to first make your way by bus to Volos for a ferry. Check the Ferryhopper website for schedules. From Athens Airport to Santorini is easily accomplished by air. Check the Skyscanner website to see which airlines are available on your travel date.
