How to get to your final destination on Kalymnos.?



When you land on Kos by plane, take a taxi (they are always there) and let it bring you to Mastichari. There you can find at the quay, in little kiosks, the boat tickets for the ferry boats to Kalymnos, Pothia.

Once you arrive in the harbour of Pothia you can take a taxi which can bring you to your final destination. It might be a good idea to order a taxi when you are on the boat to Kalymnos. Call 0030-022430-50300 and they will give you a number of the taxi which will be waiting for you in the port of Kalymnos.
