Book ferries to Ikaria with AFerry.co.uk
Ikaria lies in the southern most of the Aegean group of islands only 10 miles away from Samos. Ikaria got its name from an ancient myth of Ikaros.
Ikaria is a rarity for a Greek island in the sense that it is not as much exploited by tourism as the other Greek islands are, thereby best suited for those who want to escape the rush.
Ikaria has a rugged landscape with breathing taking panoramic views, a long coastline with several sheltered bays and good sandy beaches. Ikaria is famous for its deep red wine, therapeutic hot springs and health spas along with the beautiful waterfalls, dense woods and picturesque villages with slate stone houses.
There are many local tavernas serving freshly made Greek delicacies along the harbour and in the villages. Ikaria attracts visitors looking to go off the beaten track and explore the pristine beauty of the island.
