8 Greek Islands in a Nutshell ...

Greek Islands in a nutshell?

Well that’s a tall order.

Whilst there is obviously some uniformity in location, ethnicity and culture, each of the Greek Islands enjoys a separate identity.

Did you know there are more than 6000 Greek Islands, although only 227 are reported as being inhabited.

Choosing just eight was always going to be a challenge so I’ve gone for some you might have heard of and others less familiar.

Here are just 8 Greek Islands in a Nutshell:

1. Santorini

Santorini

Widely regarded as the best of the Greek Islands, Santorini is the embodiment of the Mediterranean.

Glistening white cliffs, lush emerald stretches, sugar soft sands, lapus lazuli waters and sculptured villages clinging to mountainsides or hugging a harbor’s edge, it’s no wonder Santorini is described as magical.

Whether you want to capture the beauty on camera or canvas, view a stunning sunset or shop till you drop, trek the hills or simply soak up the sun on the beach or at a pavement café, many say there are few places better than Santorini.
