Crete is ranked second with 677 seaside hotels which represents 22.5% of all coastal hotels in Greece.

Cyprus, the Mediterranean’s third largest island, was ranked third with 309 seaside hotels, which is eight more than fourth ranked Majorca. Sardinia came in fifth with 285.

Then comes Corfu and Rhodes with 255 and 227 respectively while Corsica is ranked eighth with 126. Making up the top ten are Naxos with 125 and Zakynthos with 102.
