Boat trip to Nissaros and a general question!.

We are going back in May, for the 3rd time, (last 8 yrs ago), and are hoping you can still get the boat trip to Nissaros which picks up at Kefalos beach?

Also is there still the bus that runs you up to the old town?

We are staying up the Old ruin ends of Kefalos this time,(at the Chrysoula) and hubby now has a bit of trouble walking too far,so hope to hire a car for a few days as well.

Do hope it hasn't changed too much as loved the quiet atmosphere before!

Hi there

I've only ever taken the Nissyros trip from Kos Town but it does still run from Kardamena as well so I assume it's this one which picks up on the beach.

Hello,

We caught the boat from Kefalos last May, it started there. A really good trip. A coach takes you to the edge of the volcano but the walk down to the floor of it is a little uneven. Still worth doing I think even if you forgo the walk down.

Also yes the service bus ran upto the main village.

We stayed at the Ionikos last May and are returning there on May 20.

We did stay at Chrysolua in October last year

Thank you both,most helpful.

I have some amazing pictures of our walk down into the crater there,the first time ,yes,the guide fried an egg on it, but the second time we did the trip,it had rained the night before and you were not allowed down inside as rain causes a chemical reaction and rendered it unsafe,but still a trip we want to do again!!

Looking forward to visiting old haunts!! May 13th -21st.

Hi,

did the Nissyros trip from Kefalos harbour last june. The excursions leave on a Tuesday or Saturday and cost 18e and, a further 7e for the bus to the volcano. Excellent day out , the village of Mandraki is very picturesque and the guide at the volcano Billy, is a treasure of information . You must try the local drink called Soumada, very refreshing after the heat of the volcano.

Cheers Jack

Just returned from a glorious week and our trip to Nissaros was amazing again! So much cheaper to book at the resort NOT with Thomas Cook!
