Travel To Symi

For visitors from the UK, Symi is reached either by flying to Rhodes or Kos and then by ferry boat. There is a large taxi rank immediately outside the arrivals hall at Rhodes Diagoras airport. This operates on a first-come-first-served basis and there are usually plenty of taxis waiting. The standard fare from the airport into town is currently 15 Euros, but you may be charged more if you have a lot of luggage or are a large party.

Onward Travel

There are three boats connecting Rhodes and Symi, the 'Proteus' and 'Symi' car-ferries and the 'Aegli' hydrofoil. The Aegli leaves from Mandraki Harbour in Rhodes New Town, the car-ferries from the Commercial Harbour outside the walls of the Old Town. You can also catch one of the day-trip boats from Rhodes to Symi from April to October. They leave from Mandraki every day at 9.00am. Be aware that there may restrictions on luggage on these boats. There will also be connections from Rhodes to Symi on a 'big boat'; an inter-island ferry or one connecting the Dodecanese with Piraeus. However, these take much longer. The Dodecanese Express hydrofoil also runs regular services between the Dodecanese islands in season. These boats leave from Kolona. The journey takes one hour. For information for ferries, please contact the Port Police: 2246071205.
