Dodekanisa Islands

The Dodecanese (Dodekanisa) is complex of over 163 islands and islets, of which only 26 are inhabited, situated at the most eastern part of Greece, at the borders of Europe. You will find here a wonderful blend of architectural styles of eastern and western cultures. Almost every island has its Classical remains, its Crusaders’ Castle, and its traditional villages.

The Dodecanese Islands are composed of twelve major islands: Astipalea, Leros, Simi, Nisyros, Kalimnos, Karpathos, Kastellorizo, Kos, Patmos, Rhodes, Tilos and Kasos. They are in the most oriental area of Greece, in the southeast part of the Aegean Sea, and are located just a couple of kilometers from Turkey. These islands have everything to offer to visitors: whitewashed houses, beautiful beaches with crystal waters, charming villages, exciting nightlife and more. In this diverse group of islands you can experience the traditional life without the tourist trappings.

This evocative group of islands is scattered along the easternmost edge of the Aegean, where ancient history jumps out at you at every turn. Island-hop your way to heaven, or just indulge in a spot of people-watching in the bar and beach scene of the big resorts.
