These islands are great when you want to experience local traditions while enjoying an interesting blend of Greek Island cultures during your luxury yacht charter holiday.

The word “Dodecanese” literally means “the 12 Islands” (Halki, Kassos, Kalymnos, Karpathos, Leros, Kos, Lipsi, Astipalea, Patmos, Nisyros, Tilos, and Symi).  Dodecanese is actually a group of islands composed of 12 larger islands and 150 islets. It lies in a region off the southwest coast of Turkey. Of these 162 islands of Dodecanese, only 26 are inhabited, and form the modern-day Greek prefecture.

The Dodecanese Sailing Experience

Among these groups of islands in the region, one can find those that are considered to be the oldest places. These include the Rhodes Island, easily one of the most popular destinations for yacht charter holidaymakers and there are an increasing number of large private superyachts available in the area.

If you are planning to discover and experience the Greece Dodecanese on board your favorite yacht rental, this will include island destinations like Halki, Kassos, Kalymnos, Karpathos, Leros, Kos, Lipsi, Astipalea, Patmos, Nisyros, Tilos, and Symi.

Hugged by the south end regions of the Aegean Sea, the islands of Dodecanese are rock formations underneath the sea that have been gradually pushed by nature over hundreds of years until the highest peaks were eventually exposed and turned into islands of varying sizes and shapes. For a yacht charter sailor, the journey to this region means an abundance of islets, crevices, coves and underwater rock formations.

The prevailing climate on Dodecanese ranges from dry tropical to temperate. On the low end, yacht charterers will experience wet and moderate winter months, and on the high end, several months of warm and dry summer. That means luxuriant sunlight with steady or no winds at all. This makes it an ideal destination for those who want to spend their Greek holiday on board a superyacht for some relaxation and nice tan.

The lush greenery in most of the islands in Dodecanese consists of cedar, olive and cypress, and these are interspersed by aromatic plants like lavender, thyme and oregano. Majority of the islands and islets that are uninhabited have become sanctuaries of migratory birds as the region lies along the route taken by a diverse species of migrating birds.

A Glimpse at the Glorious Old Greece

The islands of Dodecanese have a notable contribution to the rich history and diverse culture of Greece. Dodecanese is the acknowledged seat of the ancient Minoan civilization. Physical evidence of this glorious past still exists in surviving ancient structures and artifacts, which are found in the islands of Dodecanese, particularly in the Rhodes town. During the Roman times, the Rhodes Island emerged as the cradle of knowledge, and eventually was ceded as part of the territory of the Roman Empire, instead of just being a mere ally.

Dodecanese is an ideal sailing destination for tourists and sailors who want to experience the glorious history of ancient Greece as well as the natural splendor of modern-day Greek holiday on board their favorite crewed Greece luxury yacht.
