Top 5 Best Dodecanese Islands to visit with Turkish gulets

An increasinly popular gulet charter destination, the Dodecanese islands are a large group of Greek islands in the southeastern Aegean Sea. Made up of 15 large islands as well as over 100 smaller islands, the region is well known for its pristine beaches, medieval history and architecture and spectacular natural settings. Here the Dodecanese charter experts at Guletbookers take a look at five of the most popular Dodecanese islands for a perfect summer yacht charter.

KOS

Kos is one of the most famous islands in the Dodecanese group of islands, and with turquoise waters, Italian architecture and just four miles from the coast of Turkey, it’s not hard to see why. Typical of most islands in the Eastern Mediterranean, Kos has an ancient claim to fame as the birthplace of the great philosopher, Hippocrates, and serves up a spectacular setting in which to explore history.

SYMI

The island of Symi is home to one of the largest neoclassical towns in Greece. The island welcomes visitors to two main districts in the capital town: Gialos and Chorio. Gialos is a fantastic town, filled with multi-coloured buildings, luxury boutique stores and fine restaurants. Connecting the town to Chorio, the largest of the two districts, is a long stone pathway – the route flanked by the Greek island’s most impressive real estate.

KARPATHOS

Karpathos is one of the southernmost locations in the Dodecanese island group. Located between Crete and Rhodes, the island is saturated in fascinating mythical history. Visiting Karpathos on a luxury gulet trip rewards guests with mountains and plenty of vineyards and olive groves to roam. For nature lovers, the rocky caves of Karpathos are home to Mediterranean monk seals and well worth a visit.

LEROS

The island of Leros is one of the Dodecanese Islands most popular stops on a gulet charter holiday in Greece, yet also one of the most peaceful. A firm favourite for family holidays and intimate gulet getaways, highlights include protected coves and pristine beaches, as well as Agia Marina, the vibrant capital town of the mythical island. In Greek mythology, Leros is considered to be the island of the god Artemis.

RHODES

Rhodes is the fourth largest island in Greece. Attracting over a million tourists to her pristine shores every year, Rhodes boasts endless stretches of beautiful coastline, mountain pine forests and medieval cities. The capital city of Rhodes is often noted as one of the most attractive cities in the world. Founded in 408 BC, the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is well worth a stop on a Dodecanese yacht charter holiday.
