/ Kalymnos - a night in Kos
Heard there's nice places near the harbour. Can anyone recommend anywhere that's not too pricey? Also, what's the best form of transport from the airport?
What time to you arrive? Last ferry is 10pm.
We stayed in Kos by the harbour last year, but on reflection we could have caught the 10pm ferry across. This year we are just going to head straight over.
As far as I am aware the last ferry at this time of year is 19:45 (20:15 on Sunday).
From the airport a taxi is a pricey €15 (takes about 5 mins) or get the bus - not sure of the times.
For accommodation in Mastichari try email@example.com - it won't be dirty cheap for a single night but a lot better than kipping on the beach - especially as it pi55ed it down last night!
The last ferry is 19.45 at the moment you're right. However, the 10pm ferry usually begins at the start of April. The official timetable isn't out until the end of March, but this has been the case in recent years at least.
Could we charter a small boat if there was a few of us?? We originally assumed that we could make the last ferry at 10/10.30pm.

Correct about flight time. No idea about boat charter possibility - would consider that option. Have you booked anything on Kalymnos for that evening or just going to look around on arrival?
They emailed me today and were under the impression that the boat may well wait for the Easyjet flight?? Who knows?
Apparently the Captain of the ferry "always" waits for the last flight.
Fingers crossed! or there will be lots of climbers looking for a place to sleep!!
As I understand it, the ferry waits for the last flight from Athens (if it is late), not for flights from any where in Northern Europe.
