GETTING TO HALKI

By Air
Rhodes island has its own international airport (Diagoras) with direct flights to London, Manchester and several other regional airports in the UK during the tourist season. It also has direct flights to many other European cities during the summer months.

In addition there are several flights each day between Rhodes and Athens, and daily flights to Thessaloniki, Heraklion (Crete) and some other Greek islands.

A taxi from the airport down the coastal road to Kamiros Skala will take half an hour and cost approximately 40-50 . At the harbour side there are several restaurants in which to have a refreshing drink or a meal while waiting for the ferry. Fresh fish is a speciality offered here.

There are two local ferries which together run a service between Halki and Kamiros Skala. They are the Nikos Express and the Nissos Halki. The journey time is 1 hour and 15 minutes and it will cost approximately 10.

If you are travelling from the UK by plane on a Wednesday it is wise to aim at arriving in Rhodes by about 3.00pm. This means that you will be in good time to catch the late afternoon ferry from Kamiros Skala. Later flight arrivals may mean spending a night on Rhodes. However, we are happy to advise on accommodation if needed.

By Ferry from Athens (Piraeus Port)
The Greek shipping company ANEK LINES runs a ferry service from Piraeus to Rhodes which stops at Halki. This large ferry, which has cabins, restaurants and bars, stops at Milos, Crete, Kassos and Karpathos on its way south. The time of the journey from Piraeus to Halki is about 22 hours, which may be rather a large chunk out of your holiday, but an adventure for those with time to spare.

Dodekanisos Seaways also run fast and efficient catamaran services between Rhodes and other islands in the Dodecanese, some of which stop at Halki.

Blue Star Ferries also run a fast service from Piraeus down to Rhodes which only takes 12 hours. This journey can be made overnight in the comfort of a cabin!

Arrival in Halki
