The Aegean Islands belong to Greece, being split among nine administrative peripheries. The only sizable possessions of Turkey in the Aegean Sea are Imbros (Gökçeada) and Tenedos (Bozcaada), in the northeastern end of the Sea. Turkish islands also include various smaller islets off Turkey's western coast.
The Aegean Islands are traditionally subdivided into seven groups, from north to south:
Northeastern Aegean Islands
Dodecanese (Southern Sporades)
