Icaria is one of the world’s few Blue Zone places, an island that seems to make time stop, an area of unique geographical contrasts that vary among pre-historical forests, healing hot springs and lakes, as well as steep rocks and golden sand beaches. It's a destination for those who care for values such as kindness, peace, and equality.
Icaria has two ports, Evdilos and Agios Kirikos, which is the island’s capital. Icaria is one of the biggest islands of the eastern Aegean Sea. It is considered a mountain-island (the need to protect the island from medieval pirate attacks made the inhabitants build villages and settlements away from the coastline). It is a green island, with rich geographical variations and many rare species of plants and animals.
Messakti Beach, where Ikaria Surf School is located, is a beautiful, natural, golden sand beach, with crystal clear waters. It's popular yet peaceful, a perfect place to relax, read a book, enjoy a cold coffee at the amazing view beach bar while listening to reggae music, swim, and surf.
There are regular flights during the week from and towards Athens, Thessaloniki, Mykonos, and Crete.
Icaria is connected daily with Port of Piraeus, and once a week with Port of Thessaloniki. Please check the availability for airplane and ferry tickets before you choose your dates.
