Saturated in hot Aegean sun all year round, the Dodecanese Islands are a serene yet chic collection of island’s that are rapidly growing in popularity. One of the main advantages of a yacht charter in the Dodecanese is that you can visit smaller islets which are off the main tourist routes.

There are 18 main islands with the biggest and the best being that of Rhodes, Kos, Patmos and Simi.

Rhodes
By far the favourite within in this superb archipelago, Rhodes is the largest and most developed of the Dodecanese Islands. Home to an indulgent way of life and increasingly popular amongst glamorous vacationers, Rhodes is laced with ancient towns and glittering stretches of beautiful shorelines. Anthony Quinn Bay is a hotspot for yachting enthusiasts where the turquoise water shimmers in a cove of crimson rock. The quaint village of Lindos makes for an idyllic hideaway, meander alongside the Rhodian style Tudor mansions and gaze in awe at ancient ruins and picture perfect views of the sea.

Kos
With dramatic shorelines and sugar-white sandy beaches, Kos is an island of intense natural beauty and utmost serenity. Kos has remained its original charm despite being popular amongst tourists and boasts a tropical ambiance. This picture-perfect island grows an abundance of produce from grapes, almonds, figs and olives and is an idyllic island for those looking to taste the cosmopolitan lifestyle and experience the vibrant nightlife.

Patmos
The glorious island of Patmos is as picturesque as can be. The bustling capital city of Chora boasts stunning architecture, magnificent beaches and remarkable landscape views making for a tangible serenity. This spiritual island exudes an astounding sense of harmony for that ‘get away from it all’ feel.

Simi
Stretching over 84 kilometres, the coastline of Simi is sublime. Perfect for sailing, this tranquil island is brimmed with secluded coves and rocky bays, some of which are only accessible by boat. Neoclassical houses decorated in superb pastel shades pack the towns of this miniature island, and its enigmatic red roof tiles add to the lovely ambience. There are many opportunities to secure some unique crafts or handmade furniture with many of the locals skilled in wood carving.
