The present paper attempts a presentation of the insularity and the Greek sea shipping system. The purpose is to identify the most appropriate and sustainable solutions to the problems which have long been incurred. In particular, initially, the geographic specificity of the cluster of the Greek islands is recorded and there is a further report to the both real and desired operational and technical characteristics of the Greek islands. Then, we describe also the features of the coastal shipping, the network of the coastal transport and the concept of an appropriate vessel. There is a specific reference to the problem of the "infertile" islands which are isolated and the probable solutions by the state. Many posts, opinions and conclusions are taken from recent studies and surveys. Τ he most particular effort was made to assess the state policy which has to ensure the public interest and the quality service.
