If there is a place in the world where you can immerse into a timeless, carefree experience, this is Iraklia. The westernmost of the Small Cyclades island group, this tiny island will surprise you with its varied landscape, culminating from mild slopes to impressive cliffs. Its 80 inhabitants will make you feel at home from the moment you step foot at its miniature port, while its surprising biodiversity, tranquil azure waters and historic ruins will make every moment of your stay unforgettable.
Iraklia can be reached by ferry only. It is connected to Piraeus (port of Athens), Naxos and Paros islands 3 times a week, all year round. It is also directly linked to the rest of the Small Cyclades group, Amorgos and Naxos on a daily basis, on board the legendary local ferry Express Skopelitis.
You can visit Ferryhopper in order to plan your itinerary.
Distances in Iraklia are short and you will most probably move around on foot, however you may wish to reach some of its beaches or travel between its two main settlements on a vehicle.
There is a bus service during summer season, as well as a taxi operating on the island. Scooter rental is also available, along with a very limited range of rental cars.
