The Best Islands in Greece

With so many amazing islands to choose from, we compiled this list of the islands we think are your best travel bets.

  • Hydra – One of the first islands to be discovered, this island still maintains its old world charm. Interestingly, donkeys outnumber motorcycles so you know that you will be in for an interesting experience! Be sure to spend time enjoying the small restaurants dotting the island.
  • Crete – Crete is one of the better known islands due to its amazing history and intense inhabitants. You can enjoy ancient ruins, amazing beaches, craggy mountains and even the most modern hotels imaginable!
  • Dounoussa – Part of the Small Cyclades, this fishing island is full of charm. With two great beaches, travelers craving peace and quiet will love this rarely visited gem.
  • Santorini – Another popular island, you just have to schedule a visit when visiting the Greek Isles. Depending on when you are planning to go, you could visit the ancient site of Akrotiri, which has been frozen in time since an eruption over 3,600 years ago. The site will remain closed through late 2008 while repairs are conducted.
  • Cos/Kos – Popular with doctors, due to its history with Hippocrates, Kos has much to offer other travellers as well. A relatively flat island, it is a popular tourist spot with cyclists who love to spend their days exploring by bicycle. Another popular excursion is visiting the Archaeological Museum of Kos, which has many objects from various excavations, as well as a statue believed to depict Hippocrates.
  • Corfu – Featuring lush vegetation and many ancient sites, Corfu is a popular tourist destination. The attractions are busy, but this unique island offers a fabulous blend of Italian influence and cosmopolitan flair.
  • Hios – This Island has so much to offer that it is surprising that it hasn’t become more touristy!  It offers amazing beaches, beautiful scenery and superb medieval sites. If you prefer a quieter vacation is an island paradise, this island is for you.
  • Rhodes – Located in the Eastern Aegean, Rhodes City is unusual in that half the city is modern and cosmopolitan while the other half is a reconstructed ancient fortified medieval city. Truly an amazing place to experience. The Archaeological Museum can’t be missed and of course, you’ll want to spend time in the medieval city.

The Greek Islands are an excellent way to relax, rejuvenate and to experience the ancient ruins.
