As you have posted this in the 'Good Food and Drink Guide' section, I must say that if you are looking for somewhere nice to have a meal I would recommend the lovely Italian/Greek/Pizza place a short walk from Kos harbour. Unfortunately I don't know the name of it but the staff there are really friendly and the food is great. The restaurant is located on both sides of the avenue. I think its the second turning up to the left after you cross the main road from the harbour.

I am waiting to receive a firm answer from two different ferry companies on whether the service will be running from Altinkum to Kos this year. To be honest, at present, it looks unlikely. I was advised earlier this afternoon by one of these firms that they dont think there will be enough demand this season to make it a profitable venture.

I'll keep you posted.

Sorry wrong topic

Thanks for the rely Stew so it looks like the only answer would be to go to Bodrum by bus and get the ferry from there,any idea of the cost of this??

Yeah, right now that is the only way. The cost of a day trip to Kos via Bodrum by ferry is around 35GBP. The ferry goes from Bodrum every day so I don't think that theres any difference in price if you choose to come back a day or two later. If there is, it will be minimal. The worst bit of the Bodrum run is that you have to leave Didim just after 6AM :o :o :o

How long are you here for? I have been told that I'll receive a definate answer as to whether the catamaran from Altinkum will go by Monday but I'm not holding my breath.

No chance this year it just would not pay for them to set it up, better go Bodrum an d come back when you like.be warned its like a ghost town there as well.

We went from Altinkum marina last year and the ferry across was okay but the return journey was awful, everyone on board was sick and I actually thought the boat was going to go down. I have been told that the ferry from Bodrum is not as rough a crossing as the one from Altinkum. Does anybody agree with this?

As with any crossing depends on the size of the boat, and more importantly the weather!

will be going this year from Altinkum and what month?
