Rhodes Yacht Charter

Rhodes, also referred to as Rodhos, Rodos and Rhodos, is the largest island that belongs to the island group of Dodecanese, in the Mediterranean, and as such it is a place frequented by Greece charter superyachts and luxury yachts alike. It lies on the eastern section of the Aegean Sea and is just a few nautical miles from Turkey’s western side. This charming island is the favourite jump-off point by sailors and vacationers who are visiting popular destinations around Dodecanese.

Rhode’s terrain is generally mountainous and is also considered as one of the greenest islands in the Aegean Sea. It features densely covered forest and a rocky and arid coastline. The island’s capital, which bears the same name, is an upscale tourist destination with all the facilities and establishment you would expect from such destinations, complete with fine restaurants, shopping centres and nighttime entertainment spots. 

Yacht Charter Holiday in Rhodes Island

The City of Rhodes is the most sophisticated yacht charter destination in all of Dodecanese and definitely the most-frequently visited by regular tourists and yacht charter enthusiasts. Notwithstanding its cosmopolitan character, the natural allure of Rhodes remains relatively intact. Typical village life remains evident in the Island, and you can see the strong elements of authentic Greek lifestyle in the villages of Ialyssos, Kamiros, Faliraki.

An important attraction in the Island is Lindos. This is where you can find old structures with historical significance, whitewashed houses and idyllic beaches. Lindos is also home to the famed Acropolis, and the place boasts of a well-protected bay, making it an ideal destination for sailors and tourists sailing to the region on board charter yachts.

Nighttime entertainment establishments in the Island of Rhodes are concentrated in Lindos and Falikari. You can also find the best restaurants, tavernas and other food venues in these places.

Rhodes Island features a stretch of stunning coves and pebbled beaches. The island’s best assets are its well-organised beaches, which are equipped with dated facilities you would expect from an upscale tourist destination. Standard facilities in these beaches include beach bars, tavernas, watersports facilities and equipment for other water activities.

Prevailing Weather in Rhodes Island

Meltemi is the prevailing wind during the summer months. The wind originates from the northwestern section and takes on the westerly direction with a force of about 4, but it may reach a gale force of 7 in some instances. The overall wind behavior is that it may remain settled and calm for several days. But there will be instances where the wind will hit you continually for several days.

Dubbed as the island of the sun, Rhodes Island is the best place for sun worshippers, being Greece’s sunniest destination. The prevailing climate in the Island is typically Mediterranean, dry and hot during the summer months and wet and moderate during the months of winter.

Rhodes Island is the ideal Greece yacht charter destination if you are looking for some action and fun. It is in fact the best place for water sports and yachting enthusiasts. So, if you want to experience all the best that Greece can offer, then your best bet would have to be Rhodes Island.
