Coastal connection

Through Rhodes
You can get here by getting to Rhodes by plane or by ship and then using ANES or Dodekanisos Seaways boats to get to Symi. The time tables of these services are not stable throughout the year. You can check the current ones for ANES and for Dodekanisos Seaways

Ferry Boat and hydrofoil schedules
There is a twice weekly service between Piraeus and Rhodes via Symi island provided by GA Ferries. This service is usually not offered during the winter so check with the company for more details.

What if I own a boat?
You can moor your boat in Gialos, Nimborio, Pedi, Panormitis and Aghios Aimilianos.
In Gialos fuel is available. You can also seek information there about possible repair facilities.

Getting around the island
There is a bus service in Symi but it only covers that distance between Gialos, Chorio and Pedi. Cars are not all that useful as the island has a limited road network. However, you can reach most of the beaches by boat.
