  • "Great trip"

    The Diagoras is a large modern comfortable ferry. We were only on it for three and a half hours so cannot comment on cabins, but the corridors all looked immaculate. We had a lovely dinner in the dining room and a very pleasant trip from Rhodes to Tilos.

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.


Nisyros Guide

The Greek island of Nisyros is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea, between the island of Kos and the island of Tilos. Nisyros is regarded as one of the most beautiful islands in the region and is largely untouched by tourism. The island, which has a coastline of around 28 km, was created, according to mythology, during the war between Gods and Giants where Poseidon chased the Giant Polyvotis down to Kos, cut a part of it and threw it to his enemy, sinking him forever in to the bottom of the Aegean Sea. This rock is Nisyros and the volcano's eruptions are said to be the angry breathing of the defeated Giant.

The island's capital, and home to the island's port, is Mandraki and is one of the largest villages on Nisyros. Mandraki is characterised by charming cobblestoned streets and squares and typical Greek whitewashed two storeyed houses complete with wooden balconies. The nightlife is not very intense but you will surely have a good time in the village where there are little tavernas and some bars to enjoy.

It can be reached by ferry from Piraeus, Kos and Rhodes.
