Tilos or Nisyros for a stay in May?

Jump to last reply

We are well advanced in planning our 6 weeks in Greece and for the Dodecanese leg still have to decide one destination . We plan to overnight Blue Star ferry from Piraeus and can disembark at either Kos or Rhodes. From Rhodes (which we've been to before) we can (1) ferry to Symi for 3 nights then Nisyros 2 nights - and on to Kos .Tilos doesn't fit into this plan.
Alternatively,(2) there's 3 nights Symi, 3 nights Tilos and skip Nisyros , as this doesn't fit the ferry schedules.
(3) If we disembark at Kos we could go on to Tilos 3 nights , Symi 2 nights and no Nisyros.

The complex ferry system in Dodecanese in May won't allow alternatives (that we can find anyway). We would go on to Patmos ,Kalymnos and Astypalea etc....

We are not great hikers or partyers (in mid 60's) but enjoy renting a scooter ,villages and ruins and it may still be a bit cool to swim much. Symi fits in either way but there's a decision to be made between Tilos or Nisyros....
Hope someone knowledgeable out there can help us....
