Aegean sea offering a highly diversified landscape

Geography
Greece is a country located in Southern Europe, on the southern end of the Balkan Peninsula.Greece is surrounded on the north by Bulgaria, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Albania, to the west by the Ionian Sea, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea and to the east by the Aegean Sea and Turkey.80% of Greece is mountainous, and the country is one of the most mountainous countries of Europe.Greece has 13,676 kilometres (8,498 mi) of coastline.The islands are the main characteristic of Greece’s morphology.
Greek sovereign land includes 6,000 islands and islets scattered in the Aegean and Ionian Seas, of which only 227 are inhabited.
Climate – Weather
Greece has a Mediterranean climate with plenty of sunshine, mild temperatures and a limited amount of rainfall throughout the year. Due to the country’s geographical position, its rugged relief and its distribution between the mainland and the sea, there is great variation in the climate. In the summer, the dry hot days are cooled by seasonal winds called the meltemi, while mountainous regions have generally lower temperatures. The winters are mild around the coastline, with a minimum to no amount of snow, yet mountains are usually snow-covered.
Aegean sea
Aegean sea offering a highly diversified landscape such as: beaches stretching over many kilometers,sheltered bays and coves,sandy beaches with sand-dunes,pebble beaches,coastal caves with steep rocks and dark colored volcanic soil and coastal wetlands.
The Aegean Sea is a saltwater body in the northeast part of the Mediterranean Sea, centered at approximately 25 oE and 38 oN lying between Turkey and the mainland of Greece at the west and north margin. It is bounded in the south by an arc extending along the Greek islands of Rhodes near the Turkish mainland, across to Crete and Kythera (near the Peloponnese peninsula).The climate in the Aegean Sea area is characterized by the presence of two distinct periods, summer and winter, with spring and autumn relatively short and transitional. The topography and continual alternation of land and sea make the climate highly variable.
