The Donkey Islands, also known as the Drenia Islands, are constituted of 6 beautiful small islands filled with incredible sandy beaches on a picturesque ‘’Greek summer’’ setting.
Only one of them is inhabited.
The Donkey Islands are an oasis of 6 spots of land placed upon the vast big blue of the world-renowned Greek seas.
Their folklore name is attributed to the legend that locals used to bring their very old donkeys to the islands in order for the animals to die in a magnificent setting.
