Silver Island is a privately owned, untouched dream island offering you the most unique yoga experience. Situated a few miles from the mainland, Silver Island has been the home of the Christie family for 60 years and now opens its doors and sublime tranquility to those in search of a sense of inner peace and an escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

Silver Island is 60 acres of gently rolling hills, small idyllic coves, ancient old olive groves, cypress trees and wild flowers, the rhythmic sound of cicadas all surrounded by the crystal blue Mediterranean with glorious views every way you turn, all captivating to the eye.

Comprised of just a couple of white washed and blue shuttered traditional Greek homes, a church and lighthouse, Silver Island lends itself to a peaceful and rejuvenating experience. This is truly a magical place to practice the art of yoga. A place you can unwind and merge with nature and self.

During the day, the pebbled beaches, hidden coves, and miles of pathways offer a chance for guests to spend time alone in quiet reflection between the two hour dawn and sunset yoga classes.

Arrival by airplane

The airport you need to fly into is Athens International Airport, Elefthrios Venizlos.

Once in Athens you have two choices of getting to the Island. The trip will take three and a half to four hours either way.

Private transport: We use Athens Taxi Transfers for transfers from Athens to the closest local port by private or shared taxi. You can contact Frances on info@athens-taxi-transfers.com" for prices either via the mountains or the ferry crossing (same route as the bus)

By Bus: There is a daily bus at 6:45am (high season) and 8:45am (low season) directly to our local port. the cost is 18 and it includes a fun ferry crossing 4,70.

You will arrive at 10:20am (high season) and 12:20pm (low season) and we will meet you as the bus comes in. You will have an opportunity to get a few last minute things in the village before departing for the island by boat.

Alternatively for those wanting to spend some time exploring incredible Greece, there are many other airlines and flights into Athens. If you don't enjoy cities and want to get to the beach, then you are welcome to stay in our little local village of Oreoi. We are happy to help with accommodation recommendations and bookings in the village.

Alternative arrival / departure times are NOT possible. Being a private island, we rely on a water taxi service to bring our guest to and from the island. Due to the strict maritime laws, we are not able to take guests across with our own boat. The weather also become unpredictable in the afternoons with the North winds, so crossing is not always possible, and the port police will ground all boats. If you are not able to make pick up time, this needs to be communicated well in advance and it will cost 150 EUR for the trip, but this too will be weather dependent.
