The views from Toxotis Villas are exceptional.

The Best Hotels in Ikaria are mostly located in Agios Kyrikos or close to the best beaches of the island such as Armenistis, Gialiskari or Evdilos and Fanari. However, Ikaria is an island that is famous for its lovely mountain villages so you will find great hotels in places such as Raches that can make a great alternative accommodation. Ikaria is famous for its summer greek festivals otherwise known as “panigyria” that are happening on a specific day (usually in July, August or September) to celebrate the name of a specific Saint.

BUT ALSO CHECK:

Ikaria is famously one of the Blue Zones in the world, with people actually living longer than average compared to other areas in the same country or region. The island itself is a little gem with a wild history full of conflicts while it was once an independent state. Today, the island lives out of tourism mainly but it is still not extremely developed with only a few independent B&B’s and family-run hotels.

Ikaria island is quite far from Athens, and you can reach it by taking a ferry from Piraeus (it takes 8 hours ) or alternatively (and easier), just take a direct 45-minute flight from Athens or Thessaloniki only as it’s not an international airport (always check Ferryhopper for the latest ferry schedules and Expedia for the most up-to-date flights to Greek islands).

I definitely believe you need a car in Ikaria, as it’s a pretty big island with lots of areas to see and explore. There are local buses, but they are not that reliable and frequent.

VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW ABOUT IKARIA

  • Best Area To Stay in Ikaria: The best area to stay in Ikaria is in Gialiskari or Armenistis villages as you will be close to the best beach on the island, which is Mesakti Beach. See hotels in Armenistis
  • How many days do you need in Ikaria: it is a pretty big island, and you need many days to explore it properly, so I would say you need at least a week on the island itself
  • How to Move Around in Ikaria: forget about the local buses as they can be unreliable and they won’t take you everywhere; the best thing you can do is to rent a car to move around
