How to get from Mykonos to Corfu

Mykonos and Corfu are two of the best-known islands in Greece. The first is known for its luxury atmosphere that attracts jetsetters and VIPs from all over the world as well as its unique town and stunning beaches.

Corfu’s greatest assets are its Town, which is a World Heritage Site of UNESCO for its well-preserved atmosphere, and the family-friendly beaches with crystal-clear waters and lush greenery.

Can you visit both islands during your stay in Greece? 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 Sea, close to Italy and Albania).

However, it is not impossible to get from Mykonos to Corfu by private or public transportation. Read further all the possible routes in order to combine both islands in only one summer!

Airplane options

Both islands have airport, so it is easy to visit them by air. Mykonos and Corfu are connected by airplane via Athens. There is no direct flight from Mykonos to Corfu, so you have to make a stop in Athens.

The flight from Mykonos to Athens lasts 45 minutes, and from Athens to Corfu one hour. The whole trip duration between Mykonos and Corfu will last from 4 to 8 hours, depending on how long you stay in Athens.

Ferry options

There is no such option as travelling from Mykonos to Corfu 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 arrival port), 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).

Bus, train and driving routes

From Athens to Patras, you can take the bus or the train, while to go from Athens to Igoumenitsa, the only option is bus, as there is no such option as train.
