Leros Kos Ferry reviews

  • "Reliable Ferry Service"

    I used Dodekanisos Seaways to get from Leros to Kos at the end of our recent holiday. I booked the trip several weeks in advance to make sure that we could get to Kos in time for our flight back to the UK. The online booking system was easy to use and I just had to show the confirmation letter at the kiosk on Leros to be issued with our tickets. The ferry was on time, our seats in the cabin were comfortable and the whole experience was good. On boarding the ferry it took a little while for us to realize that suitcases were stored in different spots depending on your destination (the ferry made stops at several islands). But the system actually works very well as our bags were lined up on the deck for collection on our arrival on Kos.

  • "Amazing Trip "

    We loved everything about our trip from Leros to Kos. Dodekanisos Seaways are very prompt with their schedule and the staff are always very nice and helpful. The boat was immaculately clean and very comfortable. This is the first time that we had done island hopping and we would definitely do this again knowing the service from this amazing company.

Leros Guide

The Greek island of Leros is one of the Dodecanese islands that are located in the Aegean Sea, and is around 200 km from the port of Piraeus. Leros is close to the neighbouring islands of Patmos, Lipsi, Kalymnos, Agia Kyriaki and Farmakos. The small island, measuring around 74 sq. km, has a population of just under 8,000 residents, which doubles during the summer in order to cater for visiting tourists. The beaches of Partheni and Blefouti in the north of the island are popular with tourists, as are the beaches of Gourna, Kokali and Ayia Isidoros on the west side of the island and the large bay of Alinda in the central eastern part of the island. The bay of Alinda is also home to Pangias and Crithoni beaches. The picturesque port of Agia Marina lies to the south east of the bay of Alinda, which is around a 10 minute walk to Platanos, the heart of the island.

The journey time from Piraeus to the island by ferry is around 11 hours. Leros also has also daily connections by conventional ferry and hydrofoil to most of the Greek islands of Dodecanese like Patmos, Lipsi, Samos, Kos, Rhodes, Symi and Nisyros. There are also weekly connection to some of the islands of the Cyclades like Syros and Amorgos.

Kos Guide

Kos is a Greek island that lies in the eastern Aegean Sea and is situated to the south of the island of Kalymnos and to the north of the island of Nisyros. The island, which is only around 3 miles off the Turkish coast and sits in the Keramiko Gulf, or the Kos Gulf, is the third largest of the Dodecanese islands. Kos is a well known and popular holiday destination where visitors go to enjoy the island's beaches. Kos was also one of the first Greek islands to recognise the benefits of tourism to its economy and as a result many hotels were built along the island's long and sandy coastline in the east and south. Cycling is a popular activity on Kos as the island's terrain is quite flat and because there are many bicycle hire outlets throughout the island along with some dedicated cycle paths between some of the larger hotels.

There are daily services between Kos and Piraeus along with services between Kos and the rest of the Dodecanese, the islands of the north eastern Aegean and Turkey. The trip by conventional ferry can take up to 13 hours, depending on the intermediate stopovers, and the trip with a high speed boat can take between 5 and 8 hours.
