From Kos you can explore the Dodecanese on a sailboat, and explore the coastline of the Anatolian Peninsula by boat.
The largest of the Dodecanese Islands (in terms of both size and population), Rhodes is shaped like the tip of an arrow and boasts over 200 km of coastline, and almost perfect climate—with an average of 300 sunny days per year.
Just 11 nautical miles from the southern shore of Turkey, Rhodes is a fascinating mix of culture, history and natural beauty. The island’s largest city—also called Rhodes—is located at the northern tip and has a long and storied tradition of being a port town. This is an ideal departure spot for anyone wishing to explore the incredible stretch of Aegean Sea around the Dodecanese Islands and the Anatolian Peninsula.
Well-connected from European cities thanks to the Diagoras International Airport, deciding on Rhodes as your base for a sailing holiday should definitely include an extra day or two—if not more—to explore the island itself.
