Let the evening come to a close over a glass of authentic local beer in one of the numerous bars dotted around the town, accompanied by conversation and live music.
With an average temperature of 27 degrees during the month of August and a rainfall average of zero, it is no mystery why a catamaran charter in Rhodes is a match made in heaven.

Stock up on Vitamin D for the year by setting sail upon glittering, emerald seas under a cloudless, blue sky and a radiant, bright sun.
Since ancient times, the island has been strategically placed in the Dodecanese region. Originally constructed in 407BC, it still serves as a significant trading centre and seaport today. Not only situated between the coasts of both Greece and Turkey but also surrounded by neighbouring Greek islands, a catamaran charter in Rhodes positions you in the ideal location for exploring your surroundings and discovering more of the magnificent Mediterranean.
With so many exciting opportunities to embrace, you may be wondering, ‘where do I even begin to navigate?’ Luckily for you, we have compiled a helpful list to enable you to discover which Greek island is most suitable for you.
The historian – For the historical among you, Nisiros Island, with whitewashed houses and traditional architecture, is the non-negotiable hop-off point on your catamaran charter. This island is home to numerous historical sites including the Paleokastro, an old fortress and the remains of an ancient city dating back to the 4th century BC. Lose all sense of time by immersing yourself in the island’s ancient past.
The culture-vulture – If you’re seeking an authentic vibe, Tilos Island has that distinct Grecian feel with as little as 300 residents on the island. The port is only located 7 kilometres from the capital of the island making it an easy stop for your catamaran charter. Leros Island is also a great stop-off for those interested in soaking up some history and culture. As one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean, you don’t have to go much further than Lakki port where you drop anchor, to appreciate the beauty of the island. With buildings dating back to the 18th century period, white washed houses and tree lined streets, the beautiful aesthetic of this island is second to none.
The adventurous – calling all rock climbers and cliff jumpers among you! Due to its impressive landscape, Kalymous Island has now become the popular destination for climbing holidays. Sail your catamaran charter towards the island’s striking cliffs and coastlines and take the opportunity to do something active and different.
The chilled – After a busy time of island hopping and sailing, Halki island, seemingly untouched by tourism, provides the perfect refuge. With secret coves and secluded beaches, this island really is a hidden gem, enabling you to recharge your batteries before setting sail once more.
Both the airport and main Mandraki dock are located on the northern tip of the island and there are frequent flights and ferries to Rhodes from Athens and abroad. A regular bus service and taxi rank means that the island is well-connected and travel to your catamaran charter has never been simpler. The local currency is the Euro and the island is full of ATMs and banks, making cash withdrawals quick and convenient.
