Getting Around


In summer, various excursion boats run from Pothia to destinations including Kefalas Cave (around €20), the island of Pserimos and other beaches. Frequent water taxis also connect Myrties with Telendos Islet year round.


Buses from Pothia harbour serve a number of the island's villages. See www.kalymnos-isl.gr.

Car & Motorcycle

Vehicle-hire companies along the harbour in Pothia include Auto Market and Suzuki Rentals. Expect to pay €20 to €40 per day for a car, and €12 to €15 for a scooter.


Shared taxis, based at Pothia’s taxi stand, cost little more than buses. Private taxis cost around €10 to Myrties, €10 to the airport, €17 to Vathys and €30 to Emborios.
