What islands are in the Mediterranean Sea?
The three largest islands are: Sicily, Cyprus and Sardinia. Other islands are: The Maltese Islands, Lampedusa, Corsica, the Balearic Islands, Rhodes, Corfu, Crete, and other small islands near Greece.
There are truly no given numbers are to how many islands are in Southern Europe. You can estimate, however. Southern Europe borders the Mediterranean Sea. This sea contains about 1,460 islands. Since most Mediterranean islands are located in Europe, it is safe to say that about 1,350-1,400 of these islands are in Southern Europe.
