Dodecanese 12 beautifull islands surrounded by more than 100 islets

The Dodecanese  literally twelve islands are a group of 12 larger plus 150 smaller Greek islands in the Aegean Sea, of which 26 are inhabited. They are situated off the southwest coast of Turkey, southward of the island of Samos and northeastward of the island of Crete.  They have a rich history, and many of even the smallest inhabited islands boast dozens of  Byzantine churches and medieval castles.

Dodecanese are said to be one of the most beautiful sailing areas of Grece surrounded by cluster of small islets. There are uncounted beautiful beaches and bays that one should not be missed on each island. The most historically important and well-known is Rhodes (Rodos), which for millennia has been the island from which the region is controlled. Of the others, Kos and Patmos are historically more important; the remaining nine are Astipalea, Kalimnos, Karpathos, Kasos, Leros, Nisyros, Symi, Tilos and Kastelorizo (which actually lies in the eastern Mediterranean). Other islands in the chain include Agathonisi, Alimia, Arkoi, Chalki, Farmakonisi, Gyali, Kinaros, Levitha, Lipsi, Nimos, Pserimos, Saria, Syrna and Telendos.  It is an unforgetable sailing experience to sail at this area visit a selection of some main and small islands stay at night at many protected bays and finally you will promise yourself to come again and carry on... Your trip can be started from Rhodes or Kos islands where organised charter bases are available at Rhodes Mandraki old harbour and beautiful Kos marina. Both island have international airports with direct flyes from-to many European cities. Also one way trip from Athens to Rhodes or Kos is possible where in 2 weeks charter you will be able to sail both Cyclades and Dodecanese sailing areas.
