If you are planning a 1 week itinerary to an exotic location then Greek Islands are something that you shouldn’t miss. Whatever type of holiday you want, the Greek Islands won’t disappoint. To make it easier for you we have made a list of all these places that you should visit to make your trip a memorable one.

  • Zakynthos

Famous and known best for its exotic and beautiful beaches, the Ionian Islands is a must visit place for all those who love sandy beaches and breath taking coastlines. The beach names are Myrtos Beach, Shipwreck Bay and Porto Katsiki.

  • Corfu

If you are looking for a peaceful Island which is best for families then Corfu is the perfect place for that. Beautiful nature, surrounded by the sea is something you and your family really needs for peace of mind.

  • Delos

If you want to explore the Greek culture and history then Delos is the perfect place for that. According to Greek mythology, it is the birth place of Apollo but leave the mythology aside, Delos is a great place that still have the remains of the classical Greece. It is also a Unesco World heritage site that consist of everything that sounds Greek, including Ruins, temples, status and other amazing things. Though you cannot spend the night here and will have to come from Mykonos.

  • Mykonos

Best known for its amazing hotels, boutiques and restaurants, is the place that you should definitely spend a night at if you plan on going to Delos. Not only it is the nearest to Delos but it goes against the view that everyone has about Greek Islands that is bring rustic. Here you can enjoy some fine hotels, visit designer’s boutiques and have amazing food at one of the best restaurants.

  • Koutonissia

Jane Foster’s pick is shrouded away between the bigger Cycladic islands of Naxos and Amorgos. “Koufonissia(plural) is comprised of two modest islets, Ano Koufonissi (Upper Koufonissi) and Kato Koufonissi (Lower Koufonissi), which are isolated by a 200-meter ocean channel,” she says. “While Kato Koufonissi stays uninhabited, Ano Koufonissi, with its whitewashed Cycladic bungalows, has a humming little network of 366. Local people live for the most part from angling – it is guaranteed that there are a larger number of water crafts than occupants – there are no genuine streets and scarcely any autos, so everybody either strolls or cycles. Before 1980, there was no power either, and it is just finished the most recent decade that Koufonissi has turned into a prominent escape with Athenians looking for an unassuming and reasonable summer occasion. It’s quite cherished by yachters as well, who field up their cruising water crafts

  • Andros

There are magnificent strolls all finished rocky Andros, the most northerly of the Cyclades. John Gimlette, a consistent contributer to Telegraph Travel, reviews a trek in 2000: “We walked along antiquated asphalts limited by huge stone-framed dividers. We staggered into orange forests or sprinkled along streams colonized by reptiles and operatic frogs. At that point we moved into incredible, snap dry valleys, home just to pine martens. At long last, we climbed up through almond forests and mulberry backwoods to the Panachrantos religious community. Once, 300 priests had lived here, however just two stayed, living in a condition of ecstatic ghastliness. They gathered our gifts in a Roman centurion’s skull, yet never excited to our essence.”

    I adore Greece and have been a few times to the islands. My favourite from the list has to be Delos. It sounds more authentic, and I’m a big sucker for a UNESCO site! I also prefer the lesser known islands; Mykonos is too flashy and expensive for me, give me Delos or Andros any day 🙂

    I loved Greece, and I made a vow that I would return with a partner one day. My husband has been hearing about this pledge basically since the day we got engaged. 🙂 Honestly, all of these islands sound amazing. Delos sounds fascinating, but it would be hard to beat the Zakynthos beaches or the peace of Corfu. Clearly, we just need to go explore them all. Thanks for sharing!
