Arki Guide

The picturesque Dodecanese Island of Arki lies in southwest Greece. Found in the Aegean Sea, the charming islet is popular with yachters and those looking for a quieter experience to the tourist hotspot, neighbouring islands. The close proximity to other Aegean isles makes it the ideal spot for island hopping sailors.

Overlooking the stunning harbour area are the ruins of an ancient acropolis. The old stones on this hillside vantage point is the perfect place to take in the beautiful sunset, over the crystallised Aegean waves. The dry and rocky island is largely uninhabited, with coverage mainly made up of olive trees and shrubs. However, the beach provides crystal clear waters to swim, with views of the nearby idyllic isles. With around 50 local inhabitants there is a small supermarket to buy amenities.

Despite being small in size, the Port of Arki provides a number of services to neighbouring islands. Throughout the week Arki offers one trip to each of the Dodecanese destinations through Dodekanisos Seaways.
