Here are 8 must visit greek islands. Click On the Next Button to See Next.

Gavdos

Europe’s beautiful southernmost island, Gavdos is unusually striking owing to its unaffected natural beauty and native traditions. The best way to explore Gavdos is to sleep beneath the stars in a tent by the sea. Don’t miss Agios and Potamos beaches (lots of nudist beaches here).

Milos

Milos is a traveler’s heaven with its lunar landscape, 70 striking beaches (a majority of them hidden and undiscovered) and white powdery sand. Visit Papafrgas and Papikikou beach for a nice, laid-back day trip.

Icaria

Housed in the Aegean Sea, this charmingly inaccessible destination is rugged and beautiful. It features tiny mysterious bays, relaxing thermal waters and eye-catching ancient Greek architecture. Don’t forget to visit Therma for its warm mineral springs.

Tilos

Mountainous terrains and rough roads have made Tilos a great destination for adventure-exploration activities such as witnessing indigenous wildlife up, close and personal and hiking along tiny, rural islands. Don’t forget to go beach bumming on San Antonio beach.

Paxi

Located near tourist favorite Corfu, Paxi is a relatively unknown Ionian Island, featuring lots of privacy, tranquility and fresh sea food. Don’t leave without sampling its popular local drink Ouzu. Take a speed boat from Corfu or the mainland to access this pleasant cast-away island.

Skyros

Nestled in the western region of the Aegean Sea, Skyros is idyllic and sparsely populated. Lots of hidden treasures can be explored by renting a bike, including Mount Olympus to the north. Don’t forget to visit Atitsa and Palamari beaches.

Mykonos

If the pleasant, laid-back vibe doesn’t impress you, the Cycladic architecture will! Walk through Mykonos’ narrow winding streets or party until dawn, it’s all about living it up here. Oh! And did we mention the jaw dropping clear blue water. Take a ferry from Athens to land here.

Santorini

The drop-dead beautiful Santorini has graced everything from destination wedding pictures to travel brochures as one of the most picturesque place on earth. Heady romance, action packed nightlife, white houses and amazing beaches (Red Beach, Kamari and Perissa), there’s plenty of reason to vacation here.
