Located in the Dodecanese group of islands, the Greek island of Halki lies in the Aegean Sea and is the smallest inhabited island in the Dodecanese. Lying around 6 km to the west of the island of Rhodes, Halki has managed to retain much of its natural charm as it has not developed, so far, into much of a tourist destination. The island, with its relaxing beaches and beautiful architecture make it an ideal destination for those visitors seeking peace and privacy. Few beaches in Halki are organized and can be accessed on foot or by bus. The rest of the beaches on the island are totally secluded.
There is an abandoned village in the centre of the island which is overlooked by a medieval castle. The village was abandoned when piracy was confronted in the Aegean Sea and therefore the village's inhabitants began to move to the area around the port.
The island is connected by conventional ferry and Highspeed ferries to the port of Piraeus and the rest of the Dodecanese islands. It is also possible to take a ferry to the Cycladic islands and to Crete via other ports.
The Greek island of Karpathos lies in the Aegean Sea and is the second largest of the Dodecanese group of islands. The island sits between the neighbouring islands of Crete and Rhodes and is widely regarded as being one of the most spectacular of all the Greek islands. Unlike many of its neighbours, and probably as a result of its relatively remote location, Karpathos only began to develop in the last couple of decades. However, the development that has taken place is largely restricted to the southern parts of the island. The northern and central parts of the island have retained their authenticity and are largely unspoilt, with pretty little villages that seem miles away from tourism. Perhaps the island's most famous features are its beaches with golden sand and crystal clear waters. The island is popular with families and also with hikers who like to explore the many trekking paths that criss cross the island.
Ferries from Karpathos depart to the ports of Piraeus, Rhodes, Heraklion, Milos, Anafi, Sitia, Santorini, Chalki and Kasos.
