Getting to and from the port


By car

The main harbour of Acandia is 3 km outside of town. Coming from town you will first pass the cruise ships harbour and continue. It isn't well signposted but it should be clear when you reach the port area.

By Taxi

There is a taxi rank located outside the harbour. You should normally have few issues finding a taxi close to when your ferry arrives or departs.

By Bus

For the main harbour of Acandia there is a bus stop at the front of the port. But coming from the airport, the bus will stop at Mandraki harbour and you may need to take another bus or a taxi. You can also walk there, but the distance is about 3km and it will take about 25 minutes.

Frequently asked questions for Rhodes ferries

Rhodes (Rodos in Greek) has four harbours in the port area called Kolona. Note, however, that only one harbour is actually called Kolona.
  • Acandia harbour (also spelled Akantia) Most ferries including Blue Star Ferries and ferries to and from Piraeus use this port as well as most bigger ferries including Dodekanisos Seaways' Panagia Skiadeni to and from Simi and Panormitis. It's located about 3km outside the city. Busses and taxis are available and frequent.
  • Kolona harbour The high speed catamarans Dodekanisos Express and Dodekanisos Pride use this port. It is near the city centre opposite the main entrance for the old town. It's about a twenty to thirty minute walk to Acandia.
  • Mandraki harbour This harbour is used mainly for day trip boats that travel to and from the nearest islands or take in many islands in one day.
  • Tourist harbour This harbour is used by cruise ships. It's near the city centre and the old town.
  • If in doubt Your ticket will tell you what port you travel to or from and if you remember the name of your ferry (not just the company) all the bus drivers and taxi drivers and hoteliers on the island will most likely know which port and harbour you need.
You can travel to Rhodes from Athens by using the port of Piraeus.
  • On foot: Please arrive at least one hour before you travel.
  • By car: Please arrive at least two hours before you travel and in July and August allow for traffic jams on your journey.
Yes, you can take your dog or other pet on the ferry but it isn't possible to book a space in the kennel in advance. All Greek ships by law must have some kennel space.
  • On conventional ferries

    If you are travelling on conventional ferry (not a fast ferry or catamaran) there is normally space available in the kennels and you should also be able to have your dog on all deck areas (but not inside) with you. Strictly speaking, this at the discretion of the ferry company but in general you should have no issues - though please take a muzzle with you just in case and keep your dog on a leash at all times. Small sized dogs and cats can travel in the ship as long as they stay inside a special travel box.

    The other option, for absolute peace of mind, is to book a pet cabin. These are like normal cabins but have linoleum flooring. They are also available for day crossings at reasonable prices. This way you don't have to worry about finding space in the kennels and you and your dog or cat can relax. In July and August ferries can get very busy with people and other dogs.

  • On fast ferries or catamarans

    Fast ferries and catamarans will also have kennels but these will be limited in number. In addition, the majority of fast ferries (though there are exceptions) don't have open deck space accessible throughout the journey, so you will not be able to stay out with your pet during your crossing. However, if your pet is small and inside a travel box you will be able to keep him or her inside.
