Flights & getting there
Connections from Naxos are good, with the Small Cyclades Line (www.ferries.gr/smallcycladeslines) operating each day (except Sunday), connecting Naxos with the two Amorgos ports by way of the Small Cyclades.
Blue Star Ferries (www.bluestarferries.gr) has three useful routes: two run regularly from Piraeus via Paros, Naxos and the Small Cyclades, ending at either Aegiali or Katapola port. The third route sails weekly from Piraeus to Katapola and eastwards to Patmos, Leros, Kos and Rhodes.
Purchase your tickets from Nautilos, a ticket agency with offices close to both harbours.
