Island hopping can be easy and fun, if done right.
Ferries are an integral part of island life; even if you are not travelling on one their schedules set the tone and pace of daily activity. Just know that whichever island or islands that you visit a ferry ride is an essential part of your Greece odyssey. Throughout this website there are too many references to ferries to link to, but find some general ferry tips on our Greece page.
I will warn of one mistake too many island hoppers make. Visiting more than two islands a week is a waste of limited vacation time. This is not due to time spent on the ferry but due to time spent checking out of one accommodation, getting to ferry port ahead of time(absolutely necessary because some leave ahead of schedule) and checking into your new accommodation. The whole idea of a Greek island holiday is to slow down and enjoy a peaceful lifestyle . . .
