Arki Guide

The picturesque Dodecanese Island of Arki lies in southwest Greece. Found in the Aegean Sea, the charming islet is popular with yachters and those looking for a quieter experience to the tourist hotspot, neighbouring islands. The close proximity to other Aegean isles makes it the ideal spot for island hopping sailors.

Overlooking the stunning harbour area are the ruins of an ancient acropolis. The old stones on this hillside vantage point is the perfect place to take in the beautiful sunset, over the crystallised Aegean waves. The dry and rocky island is largely uninhabited, with coverage mainly made up of olive trees and shrubs. However, the beach provides crystal clear waters to swim, with views of the nearby idyllic isles. With around 50 local inhabitants there is a small supermarket to buy amenities.

Despite being small in size, the Port of Arki provides a number of services to neighbouring islands. Throughout the week Arki offers one trip to each of the Dodecanese destinations through Dodekanisos Seaways.


Astypalea Guide

The Greek island of Astypalea lies in the eastern Aegean Sea and is one of the 12 islands that make up the Dodecanese group of islands. The island, which sits at the point where the Dodecanese meet the Cyclades islands, has a long history and is characterised by typically Greek whitewashed villages and lovely beaches. Astypalaia is also the westernmost island of the Dodecanese and is naturally separated into Mesa Nisi (the inner island, western part) and Exo Nisi (the outer island, eastern part) by a thin strip of land less than 100 m wide.

The island's capital, and home to its port, is Chora and is regarded as one of the most picturesque towns in the Aegean. The town sits atop a rock that protrudes into the sea, forming two bays. Towering above Chora is a castle with the white domes of Evangelistria and Agios Georgios churches visible above its walls. Around the castle lie Chora’s houses with whitewashed walls, blue doors and windows, and wooden balconies.

The island is connected to the port of Piraeus and also to the other islands in the Dodecanese, the Cycladic islands and to Crete.
