Getting Around

Rhodes is a major port with sea links to Athens, the islands of the Aegean and Crete, as well as to international destinations such as Turkey, Cyprus and Israel. Most international and inter-island ferries dock at Rhodes Town's commercial harbour, where travellers will find high-speed catamarans, hydrofoils, car ferries or flights to other islands in the Dodecanese. Rhodes receives direct flights from some airports in the UK during summer, and it's easy to catch a connecting flight from Athens. Public buses service the coastal towns around the island, while bus tour cover island excursions. Shared taxis are available for shorter distances, though Rhodes taxi drivers have a bad reputation for overcharging or receiving payoffs from hotels. Visitors should always agree on a fare before setting off. Rental car agencies are readily available all over the island. Horses, donkeys and bicycles are fun ways to explore the more rural and scenic areas. Walking is also a good option in many parts of Rhodes.
