Rhodes (Mandraki) port is situated at the northernmost tip of the island (right below the medieval castle and opposite the Market Square of Rhodes). Its distance from the airport is approx. a 30 minute drive and from the commercial ferry port of Rhodos is approx. a 10 minute drive.
Rhodos Island can be reached either by air or by sea. Undoubtedly, the easiest way to reach Rhodes is by charter flight directly from your country. There are many charter companies (and tour operators) that fly to Rhodes from several European countries such as JetAir Fly, TUI Fly, Condor Air, Transavia and Norwegian Air. Our recommendation is to better consult with your local travel agent for more options and availabilities on charter flights.Several domestic flights also connect Rhodes with Athens and Thessaloniki on a daily basis. You can check both Olympic Airlines and Aegean Airlines for timetables and prices. Flight time is usually about 1 hr and ticket may cost from Euro 60 to Euro 170 depending on the period and the availability.
Rhodes airport is located at the West coast of the island, approximately 15km (or 9.3 miles) away from the main town of Rhodes and there are regular public buses and taxis to the city.
Another way to reach Rhodes is by ferry boat from Piraeus port in Athens. Once you land in Athens Airport, you can take the X96 public bus to Piraeus port (information and timetable for the bus here). Ferries to Rhodes usually depart from Piraeus in the late evening due to the duration of the journey (approx. 13-15hrs) so as to travel at night and reach the destination in the morning. Only a couple of companies have daily routes to Rhodes. From experience, we would suggest you choose Blue Star Ferries for your journey as they have new and reliable boats as opposed to other companies that are known for endless delays, old boats and a not-so-good service.
Furthermore, Blue Star Ferries also offers a great price to those who book their journey in advance. More specifically, the price for the economy class saloon is Euro 20 (if available). Do keep in mind though that this is applicable for only a limited number of seats. Otherwise, the normal price for the economy saloon tickets is Euro 56 and Euro 60 for economy seats (like the airplane seats). Cabin tickets are also available to purchase.
During the summer months, there are both express ferries (which take about 8-9 hrs) and conventional ferries (which take 13-15hrs) for Rhodes. For more ferries and timetables, you may check http://www.greekferries.gr/. From Rhodes, there is also a ferry connection with the ports of Kos, Thessaloniki, Heraklion, Cyprus and Turkey (Marmaris).
Please note: The timetable for the ferries gets “published” about 3 weeks in advance. That means that you cannot see the actual schedule of the ferries before that time. However, most companies have a “fixed” schedule for some ferries that is valid throughout the year.
