As Athinios port is now the main port in Santorini, taxis queue up just outside of the port ready to take passengers to their final destination on the island.

As taxis are available 24/7 and can take you directly to your final destination, they are a very convenient transfer option. However, during the summer months, the port can get extremely busy, and you may have to wait a long time for a taxi. In some cases you will have to share a taxi with total strangers, but still pay the full price.
