The Greek Islands – Sun drenched pearls of the Aegean
Away from the mainland, Greece becomes a nation of islands which dot the glistening blue waters of the Aegean and Ionian Seas. Greece has as many as 6,000 islands and islets of differing sizes, although many remain uninhabited. Each island offers something unique to its visitors, whether that be sun-soaked beach resorts, peaceful forests, or ancient ruins to explore. Experience buzzing nightlife and stunning views on the islands of Santorini and Mykonos, or delve into Greece's ancient past in the ruins and museums of Crete and Rhodes. The Greek islands are famed for their beaches where visitors can bask in the Mediterranean sun, or explore the crystal-clear waters of the Aegean, home to some of the best snorkelling the Mediterranean has to offer. You may also wish to take the path less explored and experience traditional island life on islands such as Hydra and Karpathos.
