Chios and cesme


Looking to visit a friend in cesme for a few days and combining it with a week/few days in Chios.

Is it best to fly to Izmir and transfer/ferry across to Chios or is there another way to get to Chios?

I assume the ferry across (and back) is a simple trip? No issues ref passport/visa/customs?

Any advice gratefully received

Hi Lester,

You should take Cesme bus from Izmir airport, then in Cesme, you need to go to the ferry port. Ferries are in the morning like 9a and in the afternoon like 6p. No problem with customs or whatsoever. This is the best way to arrive to Chios unless you come from Athens or from Thessaloniki by air.

Enjoy yr time in Izmir, Cesme and in Chios.

Btw, in Chios, I recommend Emporios Bay hotel, you can also rent a car from them. They are excellent in both.
