Island-hopping in Greece is best enjoyed in the quintessentially local way: yachting. Recreational sailing is possible year-round, weather permitting, from as early as April to as late as November. There are an estimated 1,200 to 6,000 islands in Greece (depending on where you set the minimum size that differentiates an island from an islet), of which between 166 and 277 are inhabited. Eighty of these islands have more than 100 residents and around 30 of them are visited by tourists on a regular basis.
