Dokos is one of the most popular yachting destinations in the Saronic Gulf. It is an isolated, almost uninhabited, island found between the southern coast of Peloponnisos and the islands of Hydra and Spetses.
Dokos is ideal for those who love wild landscapes, peace, tranquility and stunning sunset views! During the daytime, especially in the weekends, Dokos is usually full of yachts. In the evening it usually gets quiet. The island offers important historic findings of more than 8.000 years old and the oldest shipwreck in the world. There is only a family on the island running a restaurant.
