Ferry Schedule: Thessaloniki to Peraia and Neoi Epivates (updated for October 2019)

Posted on

Thessaloniki has a beautiful waterfront but nowhere to swim.  However, just across the Thermaic Gulf are the beach communities of Peraia and Neoi Epivates, popular with locals and foreigners alike.  It’s not Halkidiki, but nice enough if you just need a day to unwind from the city and don’t have a car.  Getting to them by bus, though, can be a bit slow, especially if traffic is bad.  Luckily, there are two ferry companies (Karavakia & Poseidon Waterways) that shuttle bathers between Thessaloniki and the beaches daily.  Poseidon Waterways also continues on slightly farther to Agia Triada.

Thessaloniki’s White Tower

You can take either ferry from the White Tower or the Port of Thessaloniki at the end of the pier just past the Kitchen Bar (a lovely place to have a freddo espresso while you wait).

The beach at Peraia

Boats are now leaving generally from the port first (unless otherwise noted below) before stopping at the White Tower. On weekends and holidays its a good idea to come early so that you are assured a ticket.

The trip costs €5 and takes about 50 minutes.  Below is the complete schedule for both ferry companies:

    1. The current schedule should be accurate through September. They may have limited service in the winter months. I think it depends on demand. I will update the schedule if there are any changes.
