The Main Tourist Islands of Greece

Greece is a country of islands and islets, more than 6,000, although only 227 are inhabited. Our trip to Greece, beyond our mandatory visit to historic Athens, should include a visit to one of its islands. The main tourist islands of Greece, in case you want to avoid them or use them as a base to visit other smaller islands with little activity are

Santorini

Santorini is always highlighted as one of the most beautiful islands in Greece. its volcanic origin, its villages with white houses hanging over the sea and its offer of luxury hotels with swimming pools where you can lose the view over the sea, have made Santorini one of the most demanded luxury and romantic destinations in Europe.

Mykonos

Mykonos is known worldwide as the Greek island of marching and partying.It is therefore a destination for young people but also has its hidden corners where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of the macro discos.

Crete

Crete is the largest island in Greece, and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean Sea.Here, you can admire the remains of brilliant civilizations, explore beautiful beaches, breathtaking mountain landscapes, fertile valleys and steep gorges, and discover the island’s rich gastronomic culture.

Rhodes

The capital of the Dodecanese, Rhodes is an island that is ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday!With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place.

Corfu

With the passage of time the island may have changed, but in Corfu you can still feel the spirit of a glorious distant past.

Kefalonia

Very popular with Italians because of its proximity to the Italian peninsula, Kefalonia has some of the best natural attractions in Greece such as the underground lake of Melissani and the Myrtos beach in the north of the island.

Naxos

Anyone who has visited the island will agree on one word: surprise. It is an almost uninhabited and little frequented island that is a paradise: fine sand, crystal clear water and archaeological remains even better preserved than any other island in the archipelago.Being so close to Santorini, it takes all the tourists away and few make the time to visit Naxos which stands out even more from its populous neighbour thanks to its typical Greek houses and enviable gastronomy.

Zakynthos

The island of Zakynthos or Zante, as many call it, is a cosmopolitan and diverse island.The town of Zakynthos has a historic centre, churches and alleys that allow any tourist to get lost in the beauty of the small coastal town.

These are the most touristy islands in Greece, but don’t forget that Greece offers many small islands where you can enjoy a more relaxed stay away from the masses of tourists.
