How to Get There
You can get to Halki
The island has no airport, but dozens of international airlines fly to Diagoras International Airport in Rhodes (IATA code: RHO) with regular flights or charter flights. At the airport, you will find taxis to take you to one of the two ports from which you can get boats to Halki.
From Rhodes, you can reach Halki by sea from the port of Rhodes or (mainly during the summer months) from Kamiros Skala.
From the port of Rhodes (14 kilometers from the airport), you can take the ANEK ferry (available three times a week). The journey time is approximately 2 hours. You can also use a local ferry service (such as Dodekanisos Seaways), which takes about 75 minutes (twice a week). Approximate prices: 7 euros per passenger (16 euros with a high speed boat) and 28 euros per car.
From the second harbor of Rhodes in Kamiros Skala (35 kilometers from the airport), you can take local boats or speedboats for tourists, as well as water taxis, which make the journey in less than an hour. The caiques often transport tourists as well (especially in July and August), leaving in the morning (for example at 11:00) and returning from Halki in the afternoon (perhaps at 5:00). The water taxi makes the journey in approximately 45 minutes (depending on the weather). For information call 6944434429. With the high speed boat “Fedon,” which has been in business since 2013, the trip also takes 45 minutes. For information call 6942799487.
Another alternative is a ferry boat from a major company in Piraeus that follows the arid “off the beaten track” route of the Aegean islands. That trip takes about 22 hours, and boats are not available every day.

The departure times for local transport sometimes change without notice, so it is a good idea to confirm schedules before your departure whenever possible.
