Corfu 
Corfu is an island of multicultural charm; its old town is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Located off the coast of Albania, the islands’ two mountain chains seperate it into three districts. Visit the ancient citadel and the Palaio Frourio or the Achilleion palace and gardens. The beaches of Gouvia present relaxation and water sports. While there, be sure to taste some of the famous Sofritos in one of the bistros or restaurants of Spianada. Lefkas 
Lefkas is told to be the model for Homer’s Ithaca; at its cape the poet Sapphos comitted suicide. Its beach at Vassiliki is a paradise for windsurfing. Dramatic sharp cliffs back the west coast beaches, such as Porto Katsiki and Egremnoi, which make them the excellent spot for some creative photography. Or, if quiet and solitude is what you wish, Nidri beach will suit nicely. The Sporades 
Four major and 24 minor islands form the Sporades in the Aegean Sea. Our base is on the island of Skiathos, which is located at 39 degrees, 10 minutes north latitude and 23 degrees, 29 minutes east longitude. Skiathos is popular with its castles; its rocks harmed King Xerxes’ ship in the Persian Wars. It is a forested island, with many inlets and beaches and is the nest of the Mediterranean Monk seal. Enjoy the beach at Koukounadies or, for the daring, the popular nudist Banana beach.

Samos is the birthplace of Pythagaras and Aesop; it is the location of the early engineering project (6th century BC) the Eupalinian aqueduct, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Samos is also popular with its vineyards and Samian wine. The Cyclades 
Southeast of mainland Greece at 37 degrees, 0 minutes north latitude and 25 degrees, 10 minutes east longitude are the Cyclades, a section the Aegean archipelago that borders the Sea of Crete.

A natural amphitheatre also referred as the “City of Hermes,” Ermoupoli is popular with its shipbuilding, silk trading, and early copper work.

Dodecanese Islands 
The name for the Dodecanese Islands is derived from the Greek word for “twelve,” for the reason that there are 12 major and 120 minor islands placed in the southern Aegean Sea, off the Turkish coast. Conquered by Minoans and Dorians by 1100 BC, two of these Islands, Kos and Rhodes, were prosperous centers of trade by the 6th century BC. Dream Yacht Charter has branches on both islands. At the Kos Marina, a 14th century fortress protects the harbor entrance. Kos was the location of Hippocrates’ medical school and the greatest marketplace in the ancient world. Relax at Paradise beach. The island of Rhodes, shaped like the head of a spear once upon a time was home to one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World – the Colossus of Rhodes – until an earthquake in 226 BC collapsed these great symbols of prosperity. Now, en-route to our branch, in the Mandraki Port of Rhodes, you can find a pair of modern bronze deer where the great Colossus stood. The island is popular with its fallow deer. Moreover, in the Petaludes Valley, there are scarce butterflies and the Rhoda hibiscus. St. Paul visited Rhodes in the first century BC, and St. John was exiled on neighbouring Patmos. He is accepted as the one who converted the islands to Christianity. Rhodes was the land of the Knights of St. John until the mid 16th century delivered Suleiman, when they escaped to Malta. Byzantine churches abound and you can see the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes today. Another attraction is the Temple of Apollo in the Acropolis of Rhodes. Wherever you go in Greece or in the Greek Islands, you will see magnificent culture and rich natural beauty. Live the sailing vacation of a lifetime with a little assistance from Dream Yacht Charters.
