Which Is The Best Greek Island To Visit?
That really depends! Are you looking to lay out on the beach or to party all night? Or perhaps both.
Although you’d think Greek islands are fairly similar, you’d be completely wrong!
Each island has it’s own personality and appeal
Here are the 8 Best Greek islands to visit, especially if it’s your first time!
Santorini is the perfect, luxury destination for anyone looking for a romantic getaway.
Santorini was built on a crater, left by one of the biggest volcanic eruptions in history. That alone, makes the island one of the more unique places on the planet.
However, with all that beauty comes a price. The island is packed with tourists and honeymooners. If you want a tad more privacy consider going in off-season, like May or September.
There’s a little bit of everything here, from adventure to nightlife. A trip to Greece would not be complete without visiting this iconic city.
If you love photography (or simply want to up your Instagram game), there are so many iconic photo spots in Santorini.
This island was designed (quite literally) to confuse pirates. It was built with narrow, confusing streets on purpose and you’ll likely get lost a couple of times while here.
Popular for it’s nightlife and beaches, Mykonos is on almost everyone’s bucket list. If you’re interested in nightlife, head to Tropicana and Paradise Beach where you can party all night, every night.
Crete is Greece’s largest island and it offers a lot! From mountains to the clearest blue beaches in Greece, there’s something here for all types.
The entire island is a feast for the senses; natural beauty, delicious cuisine, and a whole lot of history. You won’t know where to start (nor will you want to leave).
A top trekking destination, take some time to explore and marvel at the beauty that can only be found on this majestic island.
The perfect getaway if you just want to unwind and relax. Corfu is more unlike other Greek islands in terms of architecture. It looks more like walking through Italy than Greece.
The Northern part of the island is full of villas and resorts (and waters so blue you won’t believe it’s real life!), but if you move inward you’ll find adorable villages will charming locals.
Only a 45 minute flight from Athens (or three hour ferry), Naxos is both beautiful and iconic.
With winding, narrow roads and unique shops, Naxos’ Old Town is a must-see.
Naxos has some of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, which you can also go boating and (if lucky) catch a glimpse of dolphins!
Want to relax by the beach and learn about some history. Rhodes Island might just be the destination for you.
Filled with beach resorts and ancient ruins, there is something for everyone.
the Old Town has one of the most preserved medieval towns in the world, and has been declared a UNESCO World heritage Site.
Possibly Greece’s most beautiful island and a local favorite. This small island is getting more and more popular every day.
Even with its growing popularity, it still feels very tranquil and lid back. This is a very sophisticated island.
It has a popular nightlife if you want to have a drink (or four), or you can walk around the romantic winding roads.
Zakynthos (or better known as Zante) is a popular summer resort.
Although best known for its party life, Zante has a lot to offer. There are picture-perfect beaches, taverns, and bars all over. However, there are quieter, more relaxing areas for families here too.
Try and walk off the beaten path and discover some secluded swimming spots.
