The Greek islands are numerous, and you can literally find everything you want according to your tastes and what you expect from your vacations. However, it is not always easy to choose a destination, when there is such a great variety. These criteria you should follow will help you to find your favourite destination.

Party, romantic or family-friendly island?

This is an important answer you should answer before you book your tickets and accommodation. In Greece, there are amazing party islands, such as Mykonos and Paros, romantic islands for couples, such as Santorini and Milos, and family-friendly islands, like Samos and Chios, so you just have to think about the style of your vacations.

Santorini

Aegean or Ionian islands?

This question and its answer has to do with the landscape and the character of each group of islands. Aegean Islands are dry and wild, with a unique landscape and extraordinary natural and urban beauty, which can be found in no other place. On the other hand, Ionian Islands have impressive beaches, lush greenery, calm landscape, turquoise waters and cities of Italian style.

Famous or unspoiled islands?

Many people want to visit a popular destination, thinking that it is worth visiting and it has every touristic facility they may need. And this is true. Mykonos, Crete or Rhodes are not accidentally so popular, and you will surely find there everything you are asking for. However, if you want privacy and peace, you can visit an unexplored island, such as Kythnos,  Paxoi, Tilos or Sikinos, where you will experience the authentic hospitality of the people and the contact with nature. If you want to combine both, you can choose two islands, the one popular and the other nearby untouched, and have unforgettable vacations.

Paxoi

Big or small islands?

If you want to truly relax and forget your car and the long distances, you can choose a small island, like Koufonisi or Paxoi, where you can go to the beaches by boat and explore the main town on foot. If you want to have many things to do and see, so you won't get bored, a big island, like Samos, Chios, Rhodes, Crete or Kefalonia, is perfect for you.
