The Dodecanese – literally means “twelve islands” are well-known as the sunniest area throughout Greece. They are renowned for crystal clear waters, pebbly or sandy beaches, alluring Byzantine and medieval monuments and much more. Each and every island you will discover on the Dodecanese Sea during Greece sailing holidays, offers you its own share of geography, landscape, feel and culture.

While embark on the Dodecanese Sea, you will come across the hidden gem – Kos. It enjoys incredible sunshine, good, reliably strong winds along with the stunning Dodecanese islands to explore. Not to mention  its cute fishing villages, secluded beaches, caves, cliffs and beautiful sunsets.

Taking Dodecanese Flotilla from Kos

On your flotilla sailing holidays in Greece on the Dodecanese Sea, you can be assured of some refreshing winds, plenty of active sailing and more than enough to keep you occupied ashore in between.

However, you might be thinking why you visit Kos on your Dodecanese sailing trip. In short and simple words, Kos is the  birthplace of Hippocrates and the island with some of the most spectacular beaches in the Mediterranean.  

Here are a few reasons to explore this undiscovered sailing jewel of the Dodecanese Sea:

Extensive stretch of coastline –

The island of Kos is blessed with a seemingly endless coastline, which makes it an ideal getaway for those who love to be around beaches.
