Greece has the longest coastline of the Mediterranean Basin, and the 11thlongest coastline in the world at 13,676 km in length. This means plenty of beautiful beaches! It also features a vast number of islands (approximately 1400, of which 227 are inhabited), so you have plenty of choices for your summer holidays!
Whether you want to visit a cosmopolitan island like Mykonos or Rhodes, or you’d rather visit an island like Symi or Tilos to be as isolated and as far from busy everyday life as possible, you would start your journey by boarding at Piraeus, the central port of Greece, or at Rafina which is especially for Cycladic islands. Check where your ship departs from and practice your linguistic skills with the crew and people around while you are there! Welcome aboard!
