The island has no airport.
,, How to get there? There is a ferry connection to Tilos from Piraeus (Athens). They go to Tilos about three times a week. The trip is quite long, and it lasts approximately 17 hours.
You will know how good a sailor you are, but even if it is quite calm, those Mediterranean swells can leave you hanging over the rail and presenting the seagulls with a partially digested meal.
You can fly to Rhodes or Kos and then travel to Tilos by ferry, a mercifully shorter trip. In any case, Tilos is also connected by ferry with other islands of the Dodecanese, like Simi, Leros, and Patmos. It's unlikely you might have to lash yourself to the mast or anything of that nature, but you can never be sure." (Alan Durant, 2021)
In the high season, the island's public bus regularly runs (about every two hours) between Livadia, Megálo Horió, and Eristos (ticket costs 1,60 EUR). During this high season, several times a week, the bus goes to the relatively distant Panteleimonas monastery.
The bus timetables are coordinated with the schedule of the day boat excursions from Rhodes.
There are no taxis on Tilos. There are several car and scooter rentals at the port of Livadia.
The police presence is very low on Tilos, but so is the alcohol limit of 0.5. The frequency of accidents to the number of inhabitants is very high. Therefore, a defensive driving style is recommended. Goats can be expected on the road between Livadia and Megalo Chorio's towns at any time of the day or night.
Donkeys are another means of transport on Tilos. You can rent one of them to make it easier and more enjoyable to get acquainted with the island's beauty.
Another type of transport is the sea taxi. You can rent a small boat to take you to the island's picturesque beaches, as many of them are only accessible from the sea.
