While I normally spend the majority of my travel time exploring the West Indies for UncommonCaribbean.com, I found myself in the Dodecanese Isles for a week. Here's what we did!
Save Place
Nea Alikarnassos Lambi, Kos 853 00, Greece
The Diamond Deluxe is a multifaceted property that offers a laid-back take on European upscale properties in paradise. The main feature of the place is a idyllic collection of large pools that cluster within its center. Bridges crisscross these...
Save Place
853 01, Greece
You could pick much worse ways to spend a day in Kos. Paradise Beach is sandy, crystal clear, picturesque and sports a fun little bar overlooking its far right shores serving a variety of foods and drinks to sunworshipers daily. To the far left...
Save Place
26 G. Averof st. Kos, Kos 853 00, Greece
If you're on the island of Kos, do yourself a favor and stop in a Barbouni for a sunset dinner. No, the sun doesn't set into the seas that border this modern Dodecanese restaurant, but Turkey will be the backdrop to your dining experience with...
Save Place
Ag. Fokas 853 00, Greece
Take a break from the cool seas surrounding Kos and plunge into the hot waters welling up from beneath the therma springs near Agios Fokas. And when I say hot, I mean it! Getting close to the source is not for the faint of heart, but the reward...
Save Place
Vrachonisida Palaiokastro, Iraklidis, Greece
I actually don't know anything about this little island near Kefalos other than it's beautiful. There seems to be a beach, historic attractions and more to be explored, but even just stopping to photograph this mini entry in the Dodecanese island...
Save Place
Paradise beach, Greece
There are two Paradise Beaches on Kos. One is northeast of Kefalos. It's quite nice with facilities, a bar, and crystal clear waters. The other is southwest of Kefalos. It's also quite nice with facilities, a bar, and crystal clear waters. The...
Save Place
Mastichari, Greece
Mastichari is a small fishing village on the north coast of Kos. Here, you'll find scores of octopus lined up on strings hung here and there curing in the sun or in the cool evening air depending on when you visit. It really is an authentic...
Save Place
Kardamaina, Greece
I stumbled along this place on a recent trip completely by accident. We'd been driving aimlessly for a while west of Kardemena looking for the perfect quiet beach to take in the late afternoon when I spied a few umbrellas through the trees between...
Save Place
Kardamena - Nisiros, Kardamena 853 02, Greece
You walk into Posidonia and you basically walk into an idyllic Greek home by the sea. On a recent visit there was a pile of children's toys near the door, several ladies were huddled around what appeared to be the Greek equivalent of the Avon lady...
Save Place
Kos 853 00, Greece
In the 2001 Census, Pserimos (a tiny island between Kos and Kalymnos) reported a population of just 130 residents — all of which are split between a small settlement in the west and a military base on the eastern peninsula. Everywhere else is...
Save Place
Pserimos, Greece
While there are only around 130 folks that call Pserimos island home fulltime, pleasure cruises out of nearby Kos island dump at least that many somehow both burnt and pale (mostly British) tourists every couple hours on her best beach! This could...
Save Place
Kos 853 00, Greece
Upon landing on Pserimos, you might think any of the beachfront tavernas would make a great destination for some lunchtime fun. Don't make that mistake! All the eateries right on the beach host the hoards of pleasure cruisers that stop off for...
