Dodecanese Yacht Charter
This is an area that we know very well. Were it not for the current complications in moving between Greece and Turkey, it would probably get our vote as the outstanding sailing zone in Greece.
We are not fans of Rhodes (either the island or the city) but Tilos, Niseros, Symi, and the northern Dodecanese islands of Patmos, Lipsi, and Samos are jewels of varying hues.
The season is the longest anywhere, the winds in summer are strong but Force 4 or 5 rather than the 6 or 7 of the Cyclades, and the waves less fierce. The charter fleets are significant, but there is not the mad rush for places in harbour that you experience in the Saronic or the Ionian. Even without Turkey, this is a zone not to be missed.
