North-Eastern Aegean Islands - Greek Islands (Greece)

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. For convenience, we have added here also the islands of Samothrace and Thassos that actually belong to the Greek districts of Thrace and Macedonia.

The North-East Aegean Islands lie east of the Sporades and north of the Cyclades and the Dodecanese, some of them very close to the Turkish coast.
The largest island of this Island group is Lesbos, the most populated island. 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. Here, on these islands you will find hot springs, castles, rich history, fantastic beaches, traditional villages and good food.
