When you think of Greece, the things that come to your mind are: the Acropolis, Olympic Games, the Greek Gods and Greek Mythology, Santorini, Alexander the Great, Socrates, Plato, Homer, Odyssey, Hippocrates and medicine, Greek food, olive oil and naturally the Greek Islands.
When you think of Greek Islands you would never imagine that they are over 2000!!! Woooow!!! You need a life time (at least) to visit them all.
Not all of them are inhabited. I would even say that the vat majority are totally uninhabited. Totally unspoiled, untouched – perfect for vacationing.
The way to go to most of these islands is by private boat, sailing, etc. but most people who come to Greece go to the islands were you have the Greek color, tradition, sites etc.
These are: Santorini, Mykonos, Crete, Corfu, Rhodes, Zante, Kefalonia, Ithaca, Kos, Ios, Naxos, Paros, Lefkas, Patmos, Lesvos, Spetses, Hydra, Tinos – these are more well known Greek Islands.
The less known but beautiful Greek Islands are: Folegandros, Amorgos, Fourni, Skiathos, Skopelos, Kalymnos, Kimolos, Kissamos, Koufonissia, Kythira, Milos, Sifnos, Serifos, Anafi, Donoussa and many many many more.
To most of these islands one can visit them by airplane but the way to do it is by boat and specifically by ferry, car ferry, flying dolphin or flying cat (all these are the types of vessels that go to the Greek Islands).
These is a vast network of routes and vessels that go to the Greek Islands – and here is were comes the famous Greek Island hopping.
You start by landing in Athens, doing the sightseeing one has to do and clubbing till sunrise and once your over with that you head down to Piraeus – the largest port of Greece. From there you board a vessel – and off you go for the first island – and from there to another – and from there to another. For sure you will be out of money before you are out of islands to visit.
You can do this two ways. The first is to go literally to the port of Piraeus and jump on the first boat that fancies you and the same all along. I would assume that the most people don’t do this, unless they are really adventurous.
So the second way to do this is to plan ahead. Visit sites, get information, prices, book a flight to Greece and back home and book hotel(s). Well if you are going to visit the islands, then you need their schedules. To find them is a hassle unless you visit the site Hellenic Travelling. They are the publishers of the professional travel guide, which is used by the majority of the travel agents, hotliers, airlines, car rental companies, etc. Along with the travel guide Hellenic Travelling they also publish the Greek Island Domestic Sea Schedules, which is the most reliable source of information for the routes / schedules for all the Greek Islands – large or small.
