Regions for greek islands Greece has many islands, [ Note 1 ] with estimates ranging from somewhere around 1,200 [ 1 ] to 6,000, [ 2 ] depending on the minimum size to take into account. The number of dwell islands is variously cited as between 166 [ 3 ] and 227. [ 2 ] The largest greek island by area is Crete, located at the southerly edge of the Aegean Sea. The second largest island is Euboea or Evvia, which is separated from the mainland by the 60m-wide Euripus Strait, and is administered as part of the Central Greece region. After the third and fourth largest greek islands, Lesbos and Rhodes, the rest of the islands are two-thirds of the area of Rhodes, or smaller.

The greek islands are traditionally grouped into the follow clusters : the Argo-Saronic Islands in the Saronic Gulf near Athens ; the Cyclades, a large but dense solicitation occupying the central part of the Aegean Sea ; the North Aegean islands, a lax group off the west coast of Turkey ; the Dodecanese, another loose collection in the southeasterly between Crete and Turkey ; the Sporades, a small tight group off the coast of Euboea ; and the ionian Islands, chiefly located to the west of the mainland in the ionian Sea. Crete with its surrounding islets and Euboea are traditionally excluded from this group. This article excludes the Peloponnese, which has technically been an island since the structure of the Corinth Canal in 1893, but is rarely considered to be an island .
