Aegean Sea and Islands - June 29th, 2009

The Aegean Sea is an elongated embayment of the Mediterranean Sea located between the southern Balkan and Anatolian peninsulas, i.e., between the mainlands of Greece (left) and Turkey (right) respectively. In the north, it is connected to the Marmara Sea and Black Sea by the Dardanelles and Bosphorus Strait.

The Aegean Islands are within the sea and some bound it on its southern periphery, including Crete (bottom center) and Rhodes (largest island in lower right quadrant).

Almost all of the Aegean Islands belong to Greece, being split among nine administrative peripheries. Turkish possessions include Imbros (Gökçeada), Tenedos (Bozcaada), and eight more islets off Turkey’s western coast.

The Greek Aegean Islands are traditionally subdivided into seven groups, from north to south: Northeastern Aegean Islands, Sporades, Euboea, Argo-Saronic Islands, Cyclades, Dodecanese (Southern Sporades) and Crete.
