Kos Lipsi Ferry reviews

  • "Good Experience"

    Booked on line. Ferry on time in both directions. Well organised ferry service with competent staff. Does what it says on the tin! We flew in from Manchester and stayed o/night in Kos, before taking ferry to Lipsi, at Triton Hotel. Hotel was good - close to ferry terminal, room clean, simple, modern. Resaurant "Avanti" able to provide us with food even when we turned up at quarter past midnight from a late flight. Nice Greek people throughout.

  • "Lovely journey"

    We took the ferry from Kos to Lipsi and it worked really well - it was only about 10 minutes behind schedule. As you board you say your destination and they put your luggage away and then it is waiting for you by the exit as you get off at your island. All very efficient. On board there is a cafe with a decent range of food and drinks, reasonably priced. You can sit inside or out, depending on your preference, but I prefer outside at the back to watch the islands go past.

  • "Very pleasantly surprised. "

    I has not expected such a slick service when I booked it. The catamarans were smart, quick and clean and the loading/unloading process was very efficient, less than 5 minutes from docking to departure. The seating was reasonably comfortable and the food kiosk was excellent, the coffee was really good. A great ferry service.

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.

Lipsi Guide

Lipsi is a Greek island that is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies between the island of Patmos and the island of Leros. The island, which can trace its history back to prehistoric times, is the largest island among a complex of smaller islands and islets and collectively form part of the Natura network. The island as we know it today was founded in 1669 by a Cretan named Illias and was later officially united with Greece in 1948. Popular attractions on the island include the Church of Aghios Ioannis, Theologos which is located next to the Town Hall and Museum. Contained within the church you can see the icon of Panaghia the Mavri (the Black Madonna) which dates back to around 1500. Also of interest to visitors is the Ecclesiastical Folklore Museum which contains some ecclesiastical relics and a small archaeological collection. Also of interest is the Panaghia of Haros, which dates back to 1600, which is situated around 1.5 km from Lipsi Town and is where you can see the only icon in Greece depicting the Virgin Mary holding the Crucified Jesus in her arms instead of the infant Jesus.
