The Aegean Islands, diamonds in the sea
Greece has an extremely large number of islands, with estimates ranging from somewhere around 1,200 to 6,000. The number of inhabited islands is variously cited as between 166 and 227. The Aegean Islands are the group of islands in the Aegean Sea, with mainland Greece to the west and north and Turkey to the east.
