There are many boats departing from Piraeus to Chalki and the trip lasts 26 hours approximately. It is preferable to travel to Chalki via Rhodes, since the two islands are connected with boats running on a daily basis, and the crossing lasts about one hour. Other than the central port of Rhodes, boat service to Chalki is available at Kameiro Skala; the latter is a more distant port, yet, boats to Chalki run more frequently from there and the fare is less expensive. There is a bus service connecting the town of Rhodes with Kameiro Skala.
