Rhodes: Sailing Activity Holiday
(Ro-dos in Greek)
Rhodes sailing holidays are ideal for those who want to explore other Greek island during their trip. Many tour operators organise sailing trips from Rhodes to other islands including Astypalea, Leros, Lipsi, Nisyros, Kalymnos, Karpathos, Kastellorizo, Kos, Patmos and Tilos. Rhodes is also a short boat trip away from the Turkish coast.
As well as it more famous landmarks, Rhodes has plenty more to impress sailing enthusiasts with picturesque coastal villages which despite the island's heavy influx of tourists have largely managed to retain their authentic appeal. From June to September those on Rhodes sailing holidays will be driven by Meltemi - the prevailing wind which starts to blow in mid-June, grows stronger from the end of July to early September and fades in October. The Dodecanese islands, which include Rhodes, are a sailor's dream, made up of more than 163 islands and islets each of which is home to beautiful beaches and bays.
