Rhodes provides all means of transport and offers visitors a chance to get around the island safe and cheap.
Buses are the cheapest way to get around the island. Blue buses run between Rhodes Town, the port and the airport. There are also KTEL (suburban) buses that go from Rhodes Town to almost all villages and beaches around the island, particularly to the most tourist places, like Lindos, Faliraki, Afandou , Archangelos.
Taxis are extensively used in Rhodes, as a fast mean of transport. There are many taxi ranks around the town, mostly outside the port, the airport and in central spots of the city. Taxis are usually avoided for their high cost but they are the fastest solution. Usually fixed rates apply for tourist spots. Book your taxi online!
The easiest way to explore the island is not with the public transportation where you have to keep to the schedule, but with your private vehicle. There are many car rentals all around the island, particularly in Rhodes Town, Faliraki, Lindos, Afandou, Ialyssos and the other tourist spots. Rhodes has good road network with asphalt roads to reach every location. It is advised to book in advance because the demand is high, especially in July and August.
Boats depart daily from the old port of Rhodes Town and go to Lindos or for trips around the coastline. There are also daily boat trips to Symi island. From the new port of Rhodes Town, ferries and hydrofoils depart to Marmaris, Turkey. From the small port of Skala Kamirou, there are daily boats to Halki island.
