Getting to Tilos
Flights to Rhodes - the optimum days for same day transfers through to Tilos (2021) are Wednesday and Sunday - also Saturday but only if the flight back to UK departs c. 20.30 onwards.
These will use the local boat Joy Star operating from the small port of Kamiros Skala on Rhodes’ west coast, an approximate 35 minute transfer time from the airport.
- Departs Kamiros Skala 18.00, arrives Tilos 19.50 (Wed, Sat, Sun)
- Departs Tilos 07.00, arrives Kamiros Skala 08.50 (Wed, Sun)
- Departs Tilos 16.00, arrives Kamiros Skala 17.50 (Wed, Sat, Sun)
There is a cafe and taverna at Kamiros Skala where you can leave luggage and wait for the boat or departure transfer. If you have a very long time between flight arrival and ferry departure or ferry arrival and flight check-in time (2 hours) we can offer a supplement for additional transfers into Rhodes Town and luggage storage facilities - however this is not really worth doing for less than a 5 hour gap. On departure we can delay your pick-up time from the port rather than wait at the airport.
Other ferries and flight days are available but usually entail an overnight in Rhodes Town on arrival and/or departure. The same applies should your flight not connect with this boat service, or if for any reason (e.g. weather, technical, very early or late season timetable changes) it does not operate.
