From Rhodes we’ll sail just a few miles west to Halki, one of the most relaxing Greek islands of them all. Beyond its lone, 300-person seaside village of Venetian mansions, a marvellously rustic interior – think white-washed Orthodox chapels, crumbling goat pens and red-berried adramithia trees – stretches away to several shores and their tavernas. Smaller still in size and population, Greece’s easternmost isle Kastellorizo is just as drowsy despite an invasion-packed past. Candy-coloured houses line its once-influential harbour front; further south, the Blue Cave’s swimmable water is a vivid shade of cobalt.
After a day at sea we’ll dock at Paphos. Though brilliant beaches await near Cyprus’s main west-coast resort, its historical sights are hard to overlook. They include St Paul’s Pillar, where the apostle was supposedly flogged, Roman villas with magnificently-preserved mosaics and Aphrodite’s Rock, a beachside boulder from which the goddess is said to have first emerged. Inland mountain villages host halloumi-making classes and terrific vineyards.
Another full day at sail takes us on to Turkey’s Turquoise Coast, where the bustling harbour town Fethiye is a tangle of cafe-crammed alleys and ornate tombs. Before we return to Rhodes, you could admire the remains of its Roman amphitheatre or slumber on nearby Ölüdeniz’s dreamy lagoon and sandy beach.
