Camping at Dodecanese islands

Για τα Ελληνικά πατήστε  εδώ

Dodecanese (in greek means twelve in number) islands or else South Sporades are not only twelve islands indeed, but fifteen main islands and some smaller ones (Alimia, Arkii, Farmakonisi, Yali, Kinaros, Levitha, Marathos, Nimos, Pserimos, Saria, Strogili, Sirna, Telendos) and of course a lot of other even smaller islands and rocky islands.

At this article we will refer to camping installations, unfortunately only two campings are established here, however I will present you very useful information in relation to the island and activities there. At Dodecanse islands the organized campings are not widespread, in contrast to the free camping which has bigger reflection.
