Island Hopping in Greece

No reviews, be the first!

The 3,000 plus Greek Islands fan out into the Aegean Sea from the mainland; those closest to Athens include the Saronic Islands, where Hydra, Poros, and Aegina are popular destinations. To the east highlights of the Cyclades encompass Delos, Mykonos, Kea, Paros, and Tinos.

North of Athens, Skiathos is the main draw of the Sporades, while further south the major Ionian Islands consist of Corfu, Zakynthos, Kefalonia, and Ithaca, while the North Aegeans include Lesbos. To the south-east of Athens lies Crete, the biggest of the islands, and just to the north-east, tucked under Turkey, Rhodes is the most-visited of the Dodecanese.
