A balmy Indian summer in Bodrum beckoned us to go exploring, and our destination was Astapalaia the western most Dodecanese Greek island before the Cyclades Islands begin.
Due to her remote location, this butterfly-shaped island has often been excluded by sea-farers since antiquity. Her striking Venetian castle and whitewashed lanes are stunning, and ''downtown'' is actually on the rim of the island with infinite views.
Astipalaia (population 1300) can be incorporated into a Blue Cruise with advance planning, and it's one island where you probably will not encounter any other gulets, even during high season.
