Greek Islands

Amid the 6,000 Greek islands dotted along the Mediterranean coast are stories, traditions and communities dating back millennia, all fringed by golden sands, ancient olive groves and idyllic fishing villages. Discover the archipelago on an island-hopping holiday, or choose to explore a single destination. Picture-perfect Santorini boasts white washed, blue roofed houses perched on cliffs above the Aegean Sea, while historic Crete is known for its deep connection with Greek mythology and the ruined city of Knossos. From Corfu to Kos, from Mykonos to Lesbos, each island has its own unique beauty, intriguing identity and array of reasons that you will fall in love with holidays to the Greek islands.
