Dokos Island, mountainous (300m) and massive, partially closes the bay of Hydra to the South-west. Its coast is steep almost everywhere near the eastern entrance point of Skindos Bay, to the north of the island, that offers several possibilities of anchorage. Dokos is inhabited by a couple of families and it has one of the best little gulfs for stopping for a swim. Little known, Dokos harbours Early Hellenic II ruins and the resting place of the oldest known shipwreck (1500 B.C.), discovered by Cousteau, in an enchanting bay -great snorkeling!
