Greece is a land of myth, legend, and more than 6,000 islands. Just think if those islands could talk! What a romantic tale they could tell. The islands sprinkle the Ionian and Aegean seas, but only 1,200 of these beautiful spots are inhabitable. Of those, only 22 have humans living on them.
Can you name Greece’s four famous islands? I bet you can! At least I know you will recognize the names: Crete, Lesbos, Rhodes, and Santorini.

How many islands in Greece have you visited?
I have been lucky enough to visit a number of them. Mykonos — maybe Greece’s most famous island but it’s hard to say — is a paradise of white. Did you know that the Mykonos is named after Apollo’s grandson? It is believed that the island Mykonos is made of the petrified bodies of giants that Hercules killed.
Patmos is the smallest Greek island of the Dodecanese group, and it is the most northernmost. It was the perfect place to exhale, take in all the beauty, and recharge. The views are spectacular.
And I can’t forget Akrotiri. Technically, there are two. One is an archeological site; one is a village. Both are part of Santorini.
Add these island destinations to your bucket list for your 2021 travel. I am still building my Top 10 list.
Have you visited any of these cities? Please share your insight.
