Getting to Prasonisi - Rhodes
If you would like to come to Prasonisi with a van or motor home, you should have sufficient time available. It takes some days
to get to Prasonisi from central Europe. If you live closer to Greece, the traveling time might be not a problem.
The cheapest and fastest way to get to Rhodes is a flight to Rhodes International Airport 'Diagoras' (RHO). Other ways, such as flights via Athens, other islands or Turkey, possibly combined with ferries, are time consuming and usually more expensive.

In front of the airport building, waiting taxis can be found around the clock. The official taxi price list of the Municipality of Rhodes
sets a prize of 115 € for the route from the Airport to Prasonisi (for the year 2015). You should discuss the price before the ride and you should not accept considerably higher prices.
Taxis usually do not have roof racks. Windsurfing equipment can be difficult to transport. Transporting the boards directly on the roof (a popular method on Rhodes when using a rental car) is hardly accepted. Special taxis with roof racks can be ordered for an extra charge. It also may take some time to get such a taxi.
Public buses are the cheapest, but also the most time consuming way to get to Prasonisi.
