Especially in the summer, direct flights from abroad are frequent. In the winter, routes are normally limited since there are less people visiting Greek islands, but the airports are still open and can be reached via a connecting flight from Athens.

Of course, the above islands can also be reached by ferryboat, a very common way of transportation to, from and between Greek islands or even with a private yacht.


For Golden Visa investors, this information can be taken into consideration when buying a property in Greece, since islands with International airports attract more tourists, a feature which may prove profitable when renting out your property. Naturally, easy access to the islands is also convenient if you are planning to use the property for your own use, to live permanently or for summer vacations.

If you wish to know more on any of the above islands or see properties in a specific one please do not hesitate to get in touch and we can assist you with your research.
