Close to Thines Vartholomio in Ilia, the “Desert of Greece” is an oasis like no other you have seen in Greece!
You can enjoy a brief fly over of the “desert” spanning about 1,000 acres, boasting natural sand dunes that have accumulated over thousands of years creating a landscape resembling that of the Sahara desert.
TAIPED, the state-owned asset development fund of Greece, is hoping to sell the land for tourism development to construct golf courses, although they have yet to find a buyer.
You can take a virtual trip to the “Desert of Greece” with the fly over video!
