The Dodecanese is an archipelago in the Aegean Sea, belonging to the Greek islands in the southernmost part of the country. Dodecanese literally means “twelve islands”, but the archipelago is in fact composed of 200 islands and islets, of which only 27 are inhabited. This island group is situated in the southeastern Aegean, between the southeastern Asian coast and Crete, east of the Cyclades. These cosmopolitan islands benefit from Ottoman and Oriental influences and are rich in history and natural wonders. Bathed by the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea, the Dodecanese Archipelago is one of Greece’s sunniest regions. A yacht charter is ideal to discover this magnificent playing field and to explore the islands.
This way, you will be able to stride along authentic and preserved little harbours such as Symi, Nisyros or Halki; stop by Rhodes’ comfortable marina and visit the splendid medieval town; moor in Mandraki Marina and trek towards the volcano on Nisyros Island; or make the most of the beaches, coves and bays to shut yourself away and relax.
The Dodecanese archipelago enjoys a Mediterranean climate with pleasant temperatures all year round and hotter temperatures in July and August. The Meltemi wind blows from July to October and can cause strong wind gusts. It is more moderate in spring and at the beginning of the autumn season with winds blowing from the south-south-east force of 2 to 4.
The best time to sail in the archipelago is May-June and September-October. Around that time, you will get moderate northerly or northwesterly winds, with pleasant temperatures and fewer tourists. If you need to find shelter or make a refuelling stop, you will find a recent and comfortable marina on the islands of Kos and Rhodes. Best to contact the port before arrival, they will guide you to enter and help you find a berth spot. During your cruise, favour little ports and anchorages, as they will bring charm and authenticity to your stopovers.
