Northeast Aegean Islands travel guide

4.1
Beaches · Landmarks · Nightlife
Although many travelers use the Northeast Aegean Islands merely as a jumping-off point for the nearby coastline of Turkey, they provide an ideal destination for vacationers seeking an alternative experience in the Greek islands. The group includes five big and eight small islands, scattered across the northeastern part of the Aegean Sea. Not as well known to foreign travelers, these islands draw mostly domestic visitors and retain a strong Greek identity, marked by traditional village life and age-old religious festivals. If you don't want to spend your entire time on a single island, use well-connected Lesbos as a base, and split your time between the group's smaller members.
