Paros Andros Cyclades Islands Travel Tips

Here's some specific travel tips for taking a ferry from Paros and then visiting Andros:

  • Ferries depart from the main port, Parikia in Paros. Due to traffic problems in Paros, I'd suggest aiming to be at the port an hour before departure to be on the safe side. Ferries arrive at Gavrio port in Andros.

  • For places to stay in Andros, take a look at my guide to hotels in Andros. Areas to consider staying include Agios Petros, Korthi, Batsi, and Chora. If you are traveling to Andros in the the busiest months of summer, I advise reserving rooms to rent in Andros a couple of months or so in advance.

  • I recommend visiting the following beaches in Andros: Fellos, Korthi, Chrissi Ammos, Achla, Vlychada, Zorkos, and Grias to Pidima. Read this guide to see how to reach them: How to get around Andros

  • Ferryhopper is perhaps the easiest site to use when it comes to booking Ferry tickets online for the Paros ferry to Andros. Tickets for this ferry route rarely sell out, but try to get them a couple of months in advance if you can.
