3 Greek islands Gems of the Mediterranean

Dreaming of a sojourn on a Mediterranean island?You could join the rush to big and bustling Sicily,Sardinia,Crete or Capri.This is the article of The New Zealand Herald by Pam Nevville ,that choose the 3 Greek islands (Kastellorizo,Symi and Thassos),the three big secrets that you should visit and discover....Kastellorizo is the most remote of the Greek Dodecanese Islands.It's much closer to Turkey than to Grrece.The town of Kos ,in Asiatic Turkey ,is a couple of kilometres away,whereas the closest Greek territory is the large island of Rhodes ,100km to the east.Ferries run from both places to Kastellorizo.



Arrival in Symi is the perfect Greek island experience.The waterfront is edged with tile-roofed buildings in tones of ochre,terracotta and cream.Symi shares with Kastellorizo the fact that it is closer to Turkey than Greece,although the two are 250km apart.Ferries from Rhodes serve both islands.


This is another of those places often labelled "best kept secret".It is the northernmost Aegean island. Thassos is a good choise for travellers wanting a Greek stopover as part of a trip to Turkey or Croatia.
