The Aegean Sea is a semi-enclosed sea with a large number of islands (about 2000) in the eastern Mediterranean, between the Balkan Peninsula, Asia Minor and the island of Crete. The Aegean Sea is one of the cradles of antiquity, ancient Greek and later Byzantine civilizations. Washes the shores of modern Greece and Turkey. The southeastern part of the Aegean Sea is called the Ikarian Sea.

The currents in the western part of the sea are directed to the south, in the eastern - to the north; their speed is up to 0.5-1 km / h. Surface water temperature in winter + 11 ... + 15 ° C, in summer + 22 ... + 25 ° C. Due to global warming, sea water temperature and salinity are constantly increasing. At a depth of more than 350 m, the water temperature does not change throughout the year (+ 12 ... + 13 ° C). The Aegean Sea has a higher salinity than the Black Sea: 37.0-40.0 ‰, therefore, after swimming in it, it is imperative to be washed with fresh water, otherwise negative consequences for the skin and, especially, the mucous membrane of the eyes are possible. The tides are semi-daily, their size is from 30 to 60 cm.

The western coast of Turkey is washed by the Aegean Sea. The weather conditions in this region seem to be specially tailored for recreation in the summer months: the heat sets in mid-June and lasts until mid-September.
