The North-East Aegean Islands are the islands of Lesbos, Chios, Samos, Lemnos, Ikaria, Agios Efstratios, Psara, Antipsara, Fourni, Inousses, Thimena, Pasas, Agios Minas and Samiopoula.

In Lesbos live 86 000 inhabitants, followed by Chios with 51 000 inhabitants, Samos with 33,000 inhabitants and then Lemnos and Ikaria with 17,000 inhabitants.
