7 Day Charter Itinerary - Kos to Rhodes

7 Days Discovering The Historic Beauty Of Greece and Turkey

Ideal for Summer Season

Cruising from Kos to Rhodes by way of numerous iconic Greek islands, this yacht charter itinerary brings together the very best spots of the historic destination.

  • Day 1


    Setting out from Kos, the first day of your private yacht charter vacation will be spent amidst the beautiful surroundings of the island which Hippocrates called home and is the third largest of the Dodecanese chain.

    Fringed by some of the best beaches to be found across Greece, Kos also boasts a superb infrastructure which makes getting around the island a complete joy in itself.

    With plenty of archaeological sites and ancient ruins easily accessible from the town, your day can be spent checking out the rich history of Greece when you’re not simply enjoying the gentle pace of life here.

  • Day 2


    Established by the Dorians who arrived to the Aegean islands in the 5th century, Datca is a crowning jewel of the peninsula situated between the Aegean Sea and Mediterranean Sea.

    Located at southernmost point of the peninsula, the ancient city of Knidos is a living testament to the famed mythology of Greece, offering visitors the chance to inspect the architecture and remains of a former civilization.

    Enjoying a long maritime history, Datca was popular amongst 16th century Spanish pirates before becoming a destination highly regarded by discerning members of the superyachtset.

  • Day 3


    On the third day of your luxury yacht charter, a cruise over to Bozburun brings you to a world of quaint restaurants and boutiques all neatly arranged along a beautiful waterside promenade.

    Famed for its history of gulet construction, Bozburun is sure to appeal to the yachtsman, with many of the expertly crafted vessels regularly seen in the harbour and surrounding waters.

    Before turning in for the night, you’ll have the opportunity to complete custom obligations to gain access to Symi the following morning.

  • Day 4


    Cruising into the cobalt blue waters of Symi early the next morning, you can expect to wake up to some of the most picturesque views to be found throughout the entire Dodecanese.

    Superbly maintained, the Neo-Classical architecture which line the fjords and streets of Symi allows you to travel back in time to a golden era.

    After spending the day drinking in the charm of the historic island, enjoy a sunset dinner and overnight stay ahead of an early morning cruise over to Tilos.

  • Day 5


    Known for its hospitable and inviting inhabitants, the island of Tilos is one of the less frequented destinations in Greece.

    Such a quiet appeal ultimately allows you to get out and become acquainted with the locals without the intrusion of other visitors. No doubt the greatest attraction of Tilos, however, is the Megalo Chorio which is home to the ruins of an ancient monastery and castle.

    To round of your day on the island in style, be sure to grab an authentic Greek meal before preparing yourself for a cruise over to Chalki.

  • Day 6


    One of the smallest islands in the Dodecanese, Chalki is situated between Rhodes and Tilos. The perfect destination to visit during a private yacht charter vacation, the assembly of ruins and restaurants combine to create an engaging atmosphere.

    For fans of history, the old capital of Halki boasts a medieval castle whilst the Monastery of Agios Ioannis Alarga is found at the westernmost point of the island.

    Once you’re down checking out the various attractions, there’s no better way to bring the day to a close than a stroll through the immaculately maintained town centre.

  • Day 7


    Cruising from one of the smallest islands in the Dodecanese to the largest of the twelve, you’ll find yourself waking up in Rhodes at the end of your private yacht charter.

    Known as the ‘sun island’ for good reason, there’s rarely a day here that doesn’t feature plenty of sunshine. Generating just the right amount of warmth throughout the day, such a climate allows you to explore the large Medieval town in comfort, stopping at any one of the numerous vendors for refreshment.

    Comprised of interesting architecture and world-renowned museums, there’s truly no danger of exhausting Rhodes before you bring your charter vacation to an end.
