One thing is certain: although far from major urban centres, you’ll get here easily - by boat or plane - but will find it hard to leave. Each island in the North Aegean has its own identity. Each is a destination with unique wild beauty and rich cultural heritage. Largely unexplored, this cluster of islands may not be tourist-magnets but that is exactly what gives them their charm. Kick back and relax beachside or go exploring in these unspoilt and seductive treasures on this side of the Aegean: Lesvos (Mytilini), Chios, Samothrace, Thasos, Limnos, Ikaria, Samos, as well as Agios Efstratios, Fourni, Psara and Innouses.
Magnificent sandy beaches with crystalline water, picturesque mountain villages, dramatic coastlines, delicious food, rich history and rare natural beauty make these islands ideal holiday destinations for those in search of seaside escapes, local traditions and unforgettable historic sites. The larger islands, such as Lesvos, Samos, Chios, Ikaria and Thasos are especially perfect for families, couples and groups of friends, while the smaller ones, like Agios Efstratios, Fourni, Psara and Inousses, are paradise for sailors and intrepid travellers.
