Amazing islands you probably didn't know for a day trip from Rhodes

Chalki ● Dodecanese ● Greece ● Kastellorizo ● Kos ● Nisyros ● Rhodes ● Santorini ● Symi ● Tilos ● Turkey ● 17 November 2016
 

Rhodes is a beautiful island, which can offer the traveller astonishing beaches, bars and clubs for endless fun, cultural opportunities, great touristic amenities and traditional towns. but what you probably did not know is that Rhodes offers you not only the above advantages but also a few small islands in a close distance to it, which are wonderful and perfect for a day trip from your base. Island Hopping in Greece is exactly what you need to have a super experience on the Greek islands.

Symi has one of the most impressive harbours in Greece thanks to its neoclassical, colourful buildings that make it look like a painted image. It is located north of Rhodes, and it belongs to the island complex of the Dodecanese, like all the islands, which are mentioned in this article. Apart from the scenic traditional village of the port, Symi has also amazing beaches with crystal and deep blue waters.

Kastellorizo s a tiny island with only one village and without beaches, but this fact should not discourage you because Kastellorizo is a mythical place. It is the easternmost Greek island, literally closer to Turkey than to Greece. The architecture of the port has Italian and Ottoman influences, offering its visitors a surprising mixture of these civilisations. On this island, it was filmed in 1991 the Oscar-winning movie Mediterraneo.

Chalki is the smallest inhabited island of the Dodecanese with a permanent population of 330 people, which is increased during the summer months. Because its tourism is not as developed as on the other islands, Chalki is ideal for peace and privacy. The island is characterised by its impeccable architecture and the relaxing beaches, which are accessible by bus or on foot.

Tilos is located between Kos and Rhodes. It is an alternative destination with secluded beaches and small villages. The most touristic place is the port of the island, but you will be impressed by the village Mikro Chorio, a ghost village with abandoned buildings. If you want total privacy, Tilosis the place to be.

Nisyros is a volcanic island with wide caldera. Its volcano, the youngest volcano in Greece, is currently active but not erupting, so you don't have to worry about that. If you have heard about the volcano of Santorini, but you want an uncrowded and peaceful destination, Nisyros is an exquisite alternative. You can stay in Mandraki or Nikia, which are picturesque villages that can offer you the calmness you are looking for.
