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!
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...
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...
Ag. Fokas 853 00, Greece

Vrachonisida Palaiokastro, Iraklidis, 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...
Kardamaina 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...
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...
