The word Dodecanese originates from the Greek language and translates to "twelve islands". However, this cluster in the southeastern Aegean comprises more than 15 inhabited islands and numerous untouched islets, boasting stunning beaches. While Rhodes and Kos enjoy international acclaim as tourist hotspots, for those desiring an escape from mass vacation and crowded shores, any of the smaller and less popular islands could become their new cherished destination in Greece. Other Dodecanese islands are Kalymnos, Karpathos, Astypalea, Kastellorizo, Kassos, Symi, Tilos, Halki, Patmos, Nisyros and Leros. The largest island is Rhodes and the smallest one is Agathonissi.

Dodecanese is connected with the Greek mainland (Athens from Piraeus port), Crete, the Cyclades, Samos, Ikaria as well as some ports in neighboring Turkey. It is considered one of the most popular destinations, therefore it is served by many companies like Blue Star Ferries, Dodekanisos Seaways, Aegeon Pelagos, Sebeco Lines, Alko Shipping, Sea Dreams, Saos Ferries, Manousos Georgios and Exas Shipping Service.
