In the south eastern Aegean, lies a group of fascinating islands called the Dodecanese. The Dodecanese is complex of over 163 islands, of which only 26 are inhabited, situated at the most eastern part of Greece.
The mild climate the sheltered harbours and the natural beauty of this area will make sailing a real pleasure and a splendid experience. During your boat rental in the Dodecanese, as you manoeuvre your yacht fo the return trip and leave behind a white soft path that marks your passage on the sea your heart will still remain in these heaven islands.
You will find here a wonderful blend of architectural styles of cultures. Almost every island has its Classical remains, its Crusaders' Castle, and its traditional villages. The most important are islands for yacht charter in the Dodecanese are Rhodes, Kos, Astipalea, Kalimnos, Karpathos, Kassos, Kastelorizo, Leros, Nissiros, Patmos, Simi and Tilos.

It came into use in 1908 when twelve islands of this group excluding Lipsi, Kos and Rhodes but including an outsider, Ikaria, protested about their deprivation of the special privileges and tax exemptions they had been granted in the XVIth century by the Turks. Like most of the Greek Islands, the Dodecanese are the tops of mountains that stood on the plain of the Aegean long since flooded.

The islands are for the most part bare of vegetation although not to such an extent as the Cyclades. Several of the islands with abundant natural springs, notably Kos and Rhodes, are relatively green and wooded.
In the summer the prevailing wind is the meltemi blowing from the NW-W. It starts fitfully in June, blows strongly in July through to September and again fitfully in October. In the summer months it regularly blows Force 4-6 and may on occasion reach Force 7. It does not blow every day, but may blow without break for 5-10 days. When the meltemi is blowing at full strength in July and August the gusts off the lee side of an island can be considerably stronger than the wind strength in the open sea. Gusts are particularly strong off Patmos, Kalymnos, Kos, Nissyros, Tilos, Karpathos and Astypalea.
