The Greek Island of Ikaria is located in the beautiful Aegean Sea, 10 miles southwest of Samos and covers an area of 99 sq miles. The major town on the island is Agios Kirykos. The island is renowned for its stunning Mountainous scenery which slopes down into to the clear blue sea. Herbs and fauna grow wild on the hillside, and goats graze lazily in the sun. Scattered amid them are brightly coloured beehives.

The lifestyle here is extremely healthy and the island has a reputation that people live longer here than most other places around the globe. It is common to see centenarians here. Many of these people enjoy a natural diet, a glass of delicious red wine, strong black coffee and a cigarette.

What is the reason for the long life? Maybe the fresh salty sea air and the warm sunshine, along with keeping active walking up and down the steep hills daily to the shops on the islands and knowing when to rest. Of course the diet may help contribute too; here it is primarily natural food that is eaten. Most dishes derive from the local produce such as vegetables, olives, honey and wild herbs. Subsequently, if you want to live longer and have a healthier lifestyle this wonderful island is the location for you.

Scientists who have researched this theory of longevity on the island have discovered that since the 6th Century B.C Ikaria was a health destination due to its hot springs for ancient Turkish and Roman visitors. The springs were believed to help relieve joint complaints and skin problems. Studies discovered high levels of radon in these baths which help protects the body's DNA against the aging process.
