Located in southern Europe, Greece forms an irregular-shaped peninsula in the Mediterranean with two additional large peninsulas projecting from it: The Chalcidice and the Peloponnese.
The Greek Islands comprise more than 6,000 islands and islets covering much of the eastern Mediterranean. Only about 230 Greek islands are inhabited and, of these, just 80 or so have more than 100 permanent inhabitants.The Greek islands are traditionally grouped into six major clusters. Each island group has its own flavour and each island within a group has its own character.
The Ionian, for example is characterised by lush greenery, the Cyclades are ‘typical’ Greek islands of whitewashed cube houses on windy, rocky outcrops; the Dodecanese, close to the Turkish mainland, are the hottest, particularly in the south.
