Kos Patmos Ferry reviews

  • "Ferry from Kos to Patmos Island"

    We booked with Direct ferries to go from Kos to Patmos Island before we went to Kos for a weeks holiday. The Ferry went on time and we were able to see Kalyminos, Leros and Lipsy Islands on the way as the ferry pulled in at many islands. The ferry was quick and efficient. Our trip was amazing. I would recommend greek island hopping by dodekanisos Ferrys. The journeys are not expensive and a wonderful way to explore the beautiful Greek islands.

    Departed and arrived on time. Overall cleanliness and maintenance was good. Seats were comfortable enough. The kiosk on board had snacks and drinks at reasonable prices.

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.


Patmos Guide

The Greek island of Patmos is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea, just off the west coast of Turkey. Skala is the port town on the island and is also the location of many of the most popular attractions. To the north of Skala is Meloi Beach with is picturesque and is shaded by trees. In the village of Hora there is the Monastery of St. John which is a popular site as is the Cave of Apocalypse which is thought to have been the sacred cave where Saint Ioannis heard the voice of God and wrote the Apocalypse. In the cave visitors are able to see the cross that was engraved by Saint Ioannis along with three small cracks in the rock through which the voice of God came, symbolising the Holy Trinity. The island is also mentioned in the Book of Revelation in the Bible where it states that its author, John, was on Patmos when he was given (and recorded) a vision from Jesus.
