NORTH EAST AEGEAN ISLANDS
What is common in these islands, is the individualism and the character. Beyond that all offer the simple joys of life such as crystal blue sea, unspoiled nature and villages, constant sunshine and beautiful beaches.
Most of these islands were colonised during the Dorian invasion in the 12th century BC and in the 7th and 6th century they were centres of brilliant civilisations, independed and powerful maritime centres.
Beside their natural attractions, all the large islands offer their visitors every facility and easy access.
