How far is Corfu from Mykonos

Corfu and Mykonos are among the most popular islands in Greece. The first is known for its Italian-style architecture, the beaches with crystal-clear waters and lush greenery and of course Corfu Town, the World Heritage Site of UNESCO.

The second is the epitome of lavishness and entertainment, with fully organized beaches with golden sand and azure waters hosting world-class beach restaurants and clubs. Plus, Mykonos has one of the best Choras in the Cyclades and an arid landscape of impeccable beauty.

Can you combine both? The truth is that Mykonos is located far away from Corfu, as they belong to different island complexes (Mykonos in Cyclades in Aegean Sea and Corfu in the Ionian Islands in Western Greece).

However, there are some possible routes from Corfu to Mykonos that give you the opportunity to visit both islands.

Let’s see the best travel options between Corfu and Mykonos to live a unique island-hopping experience!

There is no such option as travelling from Corfu to Mykonos directly by boat. Mykonos is connected by boat to ports of eastern Greece, such as Piraeus, Rafina and Lavrion in Athens. On the opposite, Corfu is connected by boat to ports of western Greece, such as Patras and Igoumenitsa.

Thus, to travel from Mykonos to Corfu by sea, you have to take the boat from Mykonos to Athens (about 2-5 hours depending on boat type), and then to drive to Patras (2,5 hours’ drive from Athens) or to Igoumenitsa (5 hours’ drive from Athens).

Then, take the boat to Corfu (1-1,5 hour from Igoumenitsa and 3-5 hours from Patras depending on boat type).
