Spread over hundreds of idyllic islands, Greece offers long sandy beaches, turquoise blue sea, whitewashed towns clinging to clifftops and culture aplenty.
Located in the Aegean and Ionian Seas are a total of 168 inhabited Greek islands, split into eight main island groups. Crete is the largest of these whilst the lush green Ionian islands include popular destinations such as Corfu and Kefalonia. The Cyclades, of which the most popular are Santorini and Mykonos, tend to be rocky and arid and are renowned for their iconic whitewashed buildings whilst on the far side of the Aegean are the Dodecanese with volcanic Patmos and picturesque Skiáthos.
Each island has its own beauty and charm and there are islands to suit all preferences, from party islands to remote getaways.
