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.
