Many of us have been to Greece. Well known all over the world for its sunny Mediterranean climate, incredibly friendly locals and wonderful places of interest, it is the obvious destination for holidaymakers looking for a relaxing week or two.


So you’’ve been to Greece. But have you been to Greece sailing? It is the perfect way to see much more of what this beautiful, ancient country has to offer, experiencing the differences between its delightful islands. Explore the Dodecanese, for example, and you will discover the bigger beauty of Rhodes compared with the tiny charms of Symi.
Rhodes has so much to offer to visitors, and you will probably want to dock here for a few days so you can explore this island in full. Rhodes Town is a fortress which dates back hundreds of years, offering contemporary shopping mixed with traditional culture. Prassonisi is a peninsula at the bottom of the island and you can see the rip tide where the Aegean Sea meets the Mediterranean. Meanwhile, Lindos is full of ancient charms, winding streets and rooftop tavernas. Symi is the smallest of the islands, famous for its production of sponges. Tiny but stunning beaches, restored houses and traditional Greek fayre are found in plentiful supply on this little island, and you will soon fall in love with its small but perfect offerings.
