Nisyros is a small island with a good road network. Public transportation exists but it is rather limited. There is one bus linking Mandraki with Nikia, Pali, Emporios and the volcano. As bus routes are not frequent, it would be advisable to rent a car or motorbike to get around the island.
There are few rental agencies in Mandraki and Pali. Distances in Nisyros are small and can be easily covered. However, drivers need to pay attention while moving around, as some of the roads are not well paved.
