Starting from Marmaris, cruise to Datca where is still unspoiled by mass tourism. A traditional Turkey yacht cruise around the many beautiful bays enables you to enjoy exploring in your own boat without any of the responsibilities of sailing. Proceed to Symi that is a very friendly island with a population of only around 2,500. If you have never been to the beautiful and magical island of Symi, we must urge you to consider visiting our island. There are no high rise hotels, no villa complexes, just some small friendly hotels, holiday houses and studios which are traditional Symian houses, some of which were originally wealthy sponge merchant-s mansions, renovated with loving care, with modern conveniences which you expect when on holiday. Keep on your cruise to Rhodes (Rodi or Rodos in Greek), the beautiful island of roses. Rhodes is famous as the island of sun, sea and sand, the ideal place for vacations. It is the third largest Greek island and, officially, the sunniest place in the Europe. The City is among the finest, not only in Greece but in the whole of the Mediterranean. It is situated at the island-s most northerly point and ringed by sea on the east and west. Rhodes (Rodos in Greek) combines the cosmopolitan character of a contemporary city with the picturesque of the medieval town, which gives the impression of having been untouched by the passage of time.
