When to go
Much of the island shuts up shop for winter. Summer is the busiest season, when island-hopping holidaymakers hotfoot it to the Cyclades… but Folegandros is one of the archipelago’s less visited destinations, so you shouldn’t find yourself surrounded by crowds.
PlanesThe most convenient airport is on Santorini, 45 minutes from Folegandros via boat and 18 minutes away by helicopter. Fly to Santorini National Airport (www.santorini-airport.com) from international destinations including London, Manchester, Rome, Paris and Barcelona.
BoatsBoat journeys from the port of Piraeus in Athens take from four to six hours; the daily catamaran connection from Santorini takes less than an hour. There are also daily boat connections between Folegandros and neighbouring islands.
AutomobilesRenting a car (or a scooter) is the ideal way to explore the island.
