From the Greek mainland ferries and highspeed catamaran services run daily from Piraeus, Rafina and Lavrio.
Many travelers probably don’t even consider Rafina a possible departure port if they are heading to one of the Cyclades, but if you are arriving at the airport of Athens you are often better off taking a ferry from Rafina to Tinos than traveling to Athens and get a ferry from Piraeus.
During the past decade, Tinos has gained reputation for its surfable waves, breaking on beaches, such as Kolimbithra, Langada etc. Since 2010, a surf-school opened, offering board rentals, and surf lessons.
