List of islands of Greece

At least of the biggest..

Greece can be easily termed as paradise of islands and islets, which cover approximately one quarter of the territory of Greece. There are more than 3000 islands in Greece, but only a part of them is inhabited permanently. The islands are divided into seven archipelagos-Ionian islands, Saronic islands, Sporades, Aegean islands, Cyclades, Dodecanese islands and Crete.

The most beautiful thing of all these islands is, that each of them has something specific to impress its visitors.
