The Greek Islands, a stunning archipelago in the southeastern Mediterranean, offer a mesmerizing blend of natural beauty, rich history, and vibrant culture. Comprising over 6,000 islands and islets, with only around 200 inhabited, each island has its own unique character.

The islands boast azure waters, pristine beaches, and rugged cliffs, making them a paradise for sunseekers and water enthusiasts. Santorini, with its iconic whitewashed buildings overlooking the caldera, is a picture-perfect gem. Crete, the largest Greek island, offers a diverse landscape, from ancient ruins to scenic gorges, and the lesser known islands of Paros and Paxos teem with beautiful villages and white sand beaches.

History abounds in the Greek Islands. Delos, once a sacred center in antiquity, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Rhodes boasts a medieval Old Town, while Corfu’s architecture reflects Venetian and British influences.

Greek cuisine thrives here, with fresh seafood, olive oil, and local wines gracing every menu. The islands also host lively festivals celebrating everything from religious traditions to local produce.

Warm hospitality is a hallmark of island life, and visitors are welcomed with open arms. The Greek Islands are not just a destination; they are an experience of sun, sea, history, and culture that leaves an indelible mark on all who explore their enchanting shores. From Mykonos’ lively beaches to Rhodes’ medieval grandeur, each island offers a unique paradise.

    A fantastic holiday, one of my best ever. Our lecturer was excellent. He pitched his frequent impromptu and organised speeches at just the right level for those of us, the majority, who had no previous experience of Geology. Rosemary
