Kos Agios Kirikos Ferry reviews

  • "Always great"

    I've been using this service every year and it always works. The catamaran is more often than not perfectly on time and rides most weather conditions well. The staff are always accommodating and it's the same crew year on year.

Kos Guide

Located in the Dodecanese group of islands, the Greek island of Kos is around 4km from the coast of Bodrum in Turkey. The island is around 40 km long and 8 km wide and has a number of towns and villages. The main town and port is also called Kos, but the island's other villages include Kefalos, Tingaki, Kardamena, Mastihari, Antimachia, Marmari and Pyli. Kos Town is usually quite and there is lots to do there. There are plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs in the town which have led to the island as a whole becoming very popular with tourists. For those visitors looking for a bargain, practically everything is available in the island's shops from ceramics to fur, shoes to books and clothes and jewellery to leather products. The most popular tourist centres on the island often also have many small shops offering handmade goods such as ceramics and embroideries along with more traditional local products such as honey, herbs, wine, sweets and spices.

There are daily services between Kos and Piraeus along with services between Kos and the rest of the Dodecanese, the islands of the north eastern Aegean and Turkey. The trip by conventional ferry can take up to 13 hours, depending on the intermediate stopovers, and the trip with a high speed boat can take between 5 and 8 hours.

Agios Kirikos Guide

The town of Agios Kirykos is located on the Greek island of Ikaria which lies in the North Aegean Sea. Many sailors and captains built their houses in Agios Kirykos, which is the island's capital, which gave the town a very nautical feeling. Many of the exhibits on display in the archaeological museum have been recovered from the sea bed and therefore the nautical theme continues. The sea around the island, according to myth, is where the son of Daedalus landed when the sun burn his wax wings and that the islet of Nikari, opposite Agios Kirykos, is the resting place of Ikarus.

The island's terrain is mainly mountainous and covered by Cypress, Plane, Oak and Pine trees. The tree coverage on the island enable the ground to retain moisture which in turn enable wild goats to graze. The forest of Radi, part of the Natura 2000 scheme, is considered to be the oldest in the Balkans. Low types of oak trees are its most numerous “residents”.

The island is accessible by boat from the port of Piraeus and Kavála, in the north of the country.
