Boat Trips

Has anyone been on the boat trip that takes you to one of the islands off Rhodes which has a Volcano on it?? Our tour rep Sharon (First choice) told us about it but ive forgotten the name and want to go to it when we go again next year. Thanks for any help you can give!

I'm not an expert but I have stayed on Nyssiros about 3 times, and you will need to get some ferry info to get there. Ferry schedules are unlikely to allow a day trip, but it is easy to find accomodation on arrival.

Plug in the ports here for ferries:-

Nissiros - I would suggest the following hike around the island, the west route south from the west part of Mandraki past the Kastro (few bits of wall), south up to a small plateax then the Ag. Stavros chapel, down into the volcanoe's crater, leaving by going east past the abandoned geo-thermal debris and up the crater rim to Nikia village, there is the odd cafe here, you may have to climb over some drystone walling as this path maybe blocked at one point. There may/may not be a bus back to Mandraki harbour ask in the village.

The path from Emborio to Pali is very overgrown.

This map appears to be accurate but I did not have these when wandering around the island.

There is a decent beach just west of Pali.

We can only do our best retired. I would say that you have given some pretty useful advise to people when it comes to Greek isles.
