/ Kalymnos in April
Once in Kos there will be an army of taxis waiting to drive you down to the ferry port. There is one evening ferry which waits for the flight, so if your flight is delayed, the ferry waits, don't worry. (It needs your custom!)
A quick 35 minute ferry ride and you arrive in Kalymnos where another army of taxis will be waiting to drop you at whichever hotel you have chosen. It is a tiny island, so all the taxi drivers know all the places.
The two taxi rides will cost 15 euros each and the ferry is 6 euros.
It really is a very quick an easy journey - and you will be surrounded by fellow climbers the whole way, so no risk of getting lost or anything. They really look after you!
Feel free to ask me if you need to know anything else.
Rest assured - you will love it!!!
A good and comprehensive answer!
Another option is to consider Rhodes. Might be a rather dear fast ferry to Pothia but in some cases it can work out. I'd hazard that, if unable to get to Kos by air, Rhodes is better than Athens for Kaly....
I live in Durham and went down to London because the flights were cheapest, you can get trains right to Gatwick but it can be a bit of a pain.
