About Iraklia

Iraklia is a small Greek island in the Cyclades island group. This is a quiet and remote place with many beautiful beaches which can be accessed on foot. After a day by the sea, spend your night there too by eating in one of the tavernas serving delicious Greek food.

Around the island, you will find the Agios Ioannis, a cave beneath Iraklia's highest mountain that is also an incredibly unique church. There is hardly any tourism on the island and as a result Iraklia is almost completely untouched by other European tourists, and a place to find beautiful seclusion.

On board Blue Star Ferries, as well as a range of cabins and seating including airline style seats, you will find an a la carte restaurant, cafe, bar, shops, internet access, ATM machine and night club. All Blue Star Ferries also now feature Goody's fast food restaurants which are Greece's equivalent of McDonalds or Burger King.

Iraklia Port

The Iraklian port is found in the small town of Aghios Georgios, on the north coast of the island. This picturesque town, like many other Greek island towns in the Cyclades, is very small but has a small array of wonderful sandy beaches that are perfect for long, lazy days on the beach. You can get ferries from Ios to destinations all over the Cyclades Islands.

Iraklia port facilities

Ios has very few facilities but it is set in the heart of the town, where there are a variety of restaurants and cafes.

Getting to Iraklia

Although there is a small road network on the island, only a few cars and buses use it. The recommended best way to travel around the island is by foot or by bicycle. There are hire cars available during the peak season but there are only a very limited number of cars available at a time.

    The most horrible experience of my life
    • Have in mind that this is not some subjective review of a grumpy customer. I am being very objective. I checked the experience of other close people and can confirm this is actually the policy of Blue Star. So, the policy is - sell as many tickets as possible to stuff the people to the moment they can stand only on one leg. We are not leaving other way. They fill the ships until they make people apocalypse. They are not selling tickets based on number of seats (both those numbered seats and number of chairs and tables on the deck), but to the very "I can't take this anymore" moment. There were so many people on our trip that tons and tons of them had to be on feet for 6 hours! We are talking about 6 hours! Then you have moments where you have to call security, fight for chair (if you have deck), fight for life. I was in complete shock. When you have this situation, you logically have situation where you wait 60 minutes for your turn to order food. Then you have dirty ship. And the worst thing (for me) - if you are a non-smoker and can't stand cigarettes, buy numbered seats inside! Or fight for chairs in the bars and halls. If you sit on the deck you are doomed. We took deck, because we thought there would be enough space and you can find a corner without people and where no one smokes. But no, that cannot happen, because of the main problem I mentioned at the beginning. There are so many people that you can bet at least 10 of them will exhale smoke on your head. You cannot save yourself.
