RHODOS ISLAND GREECE - HARBOR
The Harbor of Rhodos, Greece is probably the most well-visited attraction that the entire island has to offer. It is located at the northernmost portion of Rhodes and is within the boundaries of the capital City of Rhodos.
The Rhodes Harbor was well known throughout the ancient world as the site for one of the ancient world’s wonders, the gigantic Colossus of Rhodos. After a terrible earthquake however, the 107 fee high steel and tin colossus was brought to its knees and was left untouched for more than 800 years lying near the harbor and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Although its impressive guardian was destroyed, the Rhodos Harbor continued to serve its purpose as a major trading infrastructure located between mainland Greece and Asia.
KOS ISLAND GREECE - HARBOR
The harbor itself is a visual delight at night framed by the impressive castle and the city lights. At night, when the absence of the direct summer sun allows for a leisurely stroll by the water, the glimmering lights reflected in the harbor’s waters would make this one of the most pleasant harbors in Greece. Regretably the many tour boat operators aggressively pursuing all passers by to book for their next day cruise around the island detracts from the harbor's beauty.
KARPATHOS GREECE - HARBOR
Karpathos town or Pigadia is the capital and the main harbour, identified as the ancient city of Poseidon. On the eastern side of the harbour, on a hill, stood the ancient acropolis, of which part of the cyclopean walls still remain as well as foundations of the buildings. At the harbour, one can find most of the hotels and rooms for rent available on the island. The surrounding sandy beaches are ideal for a swim and little boats make round trips around the island stopping at untouched beaches with warm waters.

ASTYPALEA GREECE - HARBOR
The main port area of Skala certainly has a Cycladic feel, with typical whitewashed . Skala (or Pera Gialos), the old town which curls down toward the beach, and Chora, the upper town.
This the is the hub of the island and all paths lead from it including the Skala or stairs to the harbor below. The harbor below is called Pera Yalos ('further sand') and where ferry passengers disembark. Here the islands' pelican mascots receive morning fish handouts from local fishermen. Pera Yalos offers most basic amenities including an ATM, cafes, international newspapers, and public facilities.
