Water taxis

I'm trying to plan next years holiday and so far it is between Symi and Milos. We will be coming middle of June. Can anyone advise me about the water taxis to the beaches. Do they stop at all the beaches or does different water taxis go to different beaches? Do they run continuously or only pick up at certain times? Also how much do they cost?

Different taxis for different beaches on the whole. There's also a bus to Pedi beach and you can walk round to St Nicholas from there if you want. They will all pick up only at certain times, there's not enough people to do a continuous service.

Although people call them taxi-boats, they aren't really. Think of them as water-buses - they go to the beaches at fixed times and return at fixed times. They also follow routes, so from Yialos one boat will go to Aghios Marina, Aghios Nikolaos, Aghios Georgios, Nanou, and end up at Marathounda. It spends the day there and returns in the afternoon. Two other boats in the same combine operate the same route but don't go beyond Nanou and may make several trips if they think there will be enough demand.

Another boat will shuttle between Yialos and Nimborio.

There is also a boat based at Pedi which serves Aghios Marina, Aghios Nikolaos, and Nanou.

Times vary seasonally and you'll find them on blackboards by the mooring points.

The walk from Pedi to St Nicholas takes about 30mins. Its a well defined, easy, path with a bit of a scramble down the rocks at the end. The sunbeds are sometime free, other times you can have the cost deducted from a meal at the nice taverna. Once or twice we had to pay with no deduction from our meals.

Its a good beach for snorkelling.
