3-Minute Vacation: Greece's 'Blue Lagoon' From Above

Let's go. Who's ready?

Greece’s so-called Caribbean Sea is a cluster of six small islands off the coast of the Chalkidiki peninsula in northern Greece’s Macedonia region. 

The six islands, called Drenia or Gaidouronisia ― “Donkey islands” in Greek ― feature sandy white beaches and gorgeous landscapes where visitors can enjoy fresh fish in the local tavernas.

The islands are accessible by private boat. Visitors can also hire locals to ferry them from Ouranoupolis. 

Turquoise waters are the islands’ main attraction, captured here from above in drone footage.
