Beautiful Locations To Explore On Sailing Trip In Dodecanese

by Naleia Yachting Tour Organizer

The Dodecanese island group is in the southeastern part of the Aegean Sea, the sunniest part of Greece; it features 12 large islands and innumerable smaller ones, every one with a distinct character. On a sailing trip to Dodecanese you’ll explore beautiful beaches, archeological sites of great historical value, mammoth Byzantine & Medieval monuments, traditional villages and architectural jewels that date to the Italian Occupation.


Here are some beautiful locations to explore in Dodecanese for a relaxed and peaceful holiday.


Karpathos: Ideal For Activities:

Regardless of its small dimension, Karpathos is simply perfect for activities – be it beach surfing or walking trails. Built centuries ago close to the edge of the cliffs, Karpathos’ trounced windmills were constructed to last. The wind hurries along the pavement before them, muting the swift sound of their sails & of the waves crashing against the cliff face 200 meters below. The western frontier of the island, enclosed by the volatile Aegean Sea, summons a sense of wonder that only nature can deliver.


Karpathos is tiny in size, but it manages to feature a great range of landscapes, making it ideal for outdoor activities: top-class surfing beaches, roadways with soft hills perfect for cycling, and sparkling, glass-blue water for snorkeling and swimming.


Patmos: Ideal For Culture:

The air is filled with exhilarating plumes of incense, bells are ringing and the gathered devotees start a chant that echoes under a luxuriously embellished roof. This is the Monastery of St John the Theologian, an equipped Orthodox priory floating high on a hill in the old town of Hora. For decades, Patmos has allured spiritual tourists, and innumerable Christian pilgrims still come from across the globe to explore the island, known as one of the holiest sites outside Jerusalem.


Leros:  Ideal To Let Loose:

Times moves slowly on Leros. As the ferry creeps up into Agia Marina, close to faded fishing vessels & tired taxi drivers, it is almost feasible to feel the ripeness in the warm air. There’re no big landmarks, only a few museum, ruins and a bit of diving. The main draw in Leros is the location which is ideal for chill out.


Narrow roadways wind their way between gorgeous pastel-hued buildings. You will also get to enjoy watching traditional bakeries displaying engagingly sticky sweets. The tenth century Pandeli Castle is floating like a sandcastle at the summit of the town, catching the beautiful dusk on its stone walls and assuring 360-degree sights to those who can bring themselves to leave their patio chair & mount to the crest.
