Greece Travel Guide
Corfu is the second largest of the Ionian Islands located off the west coast of Greece. Corfu Town is the main commercial centre and is where the cruise ships and ferries dock, as well as the island’s main airport. The north of the island is quite mountainous and is where most of the tourist resorts can be found. Among the more well-established resorts are Sidari, Roda, Kassiopi, San Stefanos and Ypsos. The south is flatter and less populated, but there are lovely sandy beaches and a few resorts, notably the lively town of Kavos.
The airport is located 3km south of Corfu Town. A taxi costs around 13-15 euros into town. KTEL coach buses provide a good service from the town to most of the Island’s resorts. Car Hire is also available at the airport.

The Greek Dodecanese Island of Kos is only 4km off the west coast of Turkey. It has miles and miles of sandy beaches and coves, and whitewashed houses in lovely villages and towns dotted around the island. The two main resorts are Kos Town with its sophisticated harbour area, and the beach party town of Kardamena. Perhaps the best stretches of sand can be found in the resort of Kefalos Bay to the south-west of the island and include Langada and Paradise Beaches. There are plenty of sites to see away from the clear blue waters including the tourist train in Kos Town, the mountain villages and the 14th Century Castle of the Knights.
The airport is close to the centre of the island and the resort of Kardamena, around 22km from Kos Town. KTEL offers a good bus service from the large roundabout outside the airport, but given the relatively small size of the island taxis are good value – Kos Town is roughly 35 euros, Kardamena 18 euros.

Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands in the Aegean Sea, just a short distance from the Turkish west coast. Most of the resorts lie to the east of the island which is also the more sheltered side so the sea is clear and calm. Rhodes City is a stunning town with three harbours, a beach and its old town - Europe’s oldest medieval city. It is a designated World Heritage Site and is joined by the Acropolis of Rhodes, the Palace of the Grand Master, the Temple of Apollo and many more sites of interest. The resorts along the coast range from Faliraki, with its world –renowned nightlife, through to quieter more family oriented towns such as Pefkos, Ixia, Afantou and the delightful picturesque town of Lindos.
The airport is 14km south-west of Rhodes City near Paradisi. Local buses run regularly and are cheap. Taxis should cost around 28-30 euros to Rhodes City, 32-35 euros to Faliraki and 75-80 euros to Lindos. Alternatively shuttle buses or car hire are available at the airport.
