Every island has its own extraordinary legacy in the East Mediterranean-all 1,000 of them. Reminiscent of the French Riviera in the 50s and 60s, it’s no wonder it continues to lure yachters year after year. Kayak through calming azure waters and expansive caves. Discover the Roman baths. Sip on exceptional wine, and enjoy fine dining, too – from signature dishes like black risotto made with squid ink to roast lamb slow cooked overnight.
