Kos Thira Ferry reviews

  • "Great service a facilities!"

    We recently travelled from Kos to Santorini on Blue Star 2. It was brilliant with no hassles. We had allocated 'airlounge' seats which we paid about £2 extra for. These are big seats and they are very comfortable. However, the ferry is so huge, there are hundreds of other places to sit too... Overall, it was a great experience and well worth the money- much easier than flying with a lot less hassle. Just remember to pick up your ferry tickets at the port before travelling, as they do not accept emailed tickets.

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.
