Best Islands to Visit in Greece

Is Greece on the top of your list for your next vacation? Do you want to know which island you should be visiting when you make it to Greece for your vacation?

For most people, the word Greece conjures up many images of a beautiful country with idyllic beaches, but that is not all it is. There are many different islands in Greece, and they all have something unique and special to offer the world.

With so many different islands to choose from, it can be hard to choose just a few for your next vacation. Here is a list of the best island for you to visit while you are in Greece.


Zakynthos is a Greek island with many different landscapes, from the rugged coastlines to the green hills and valleys. There are plenty of activities for travelers to enjoy on this island, including water sports such as scuba diving, windsurfing, and sailing.

Many beaches around Zakynthos provide a relaxing escape from daily life and there’s even an active volcano on the south shore called Mount Ainos which has become a popular tourist attraction in recent years. You can reach the coast of beautiful Zante by ferry, and if you’re looking for cheap ferry tickets you can use LetsFerry’s services. The site provides all the routes available, so you can choose whichever is convenient for you.


Santorini is known as a honeymooner’s paradise. This island is possibly the most iconic of all the Greek islands and has been featured in multiple movies.

It is one of the biggest Greek tourist attractions around and a place you shouldn’t miss. This island is known to have some of the most incredible sunsets, coupled with the most magnificent postcard views that aren’t to be missed.

Here you can make your way down to one of the beautiful and unique black sand beaches which are a result of a volcanic eruption thousands of years ago. If you are more into the history and geological side of this, Santorini also and plenty of this to offer. Just make sure you don’t miss out on trying some of their local wine!


Next up on our list of the best Greek islands to visit, we have Serifos. If you are someone who enjoys being outdoors and going walking and hiking, this mountainous island is the place to go. Serifos is not the most visited island when it comes to tourists but is still a place that you shouldn’t miss out on.

If you want to avoid all the hustle and bustle of tourists and enjoy the geek islands in all their authenticity, this is the place to do it.

The next island that you need to visit when in Greece, is Corfu. Corfu is one of the larger Greek islands and a great place for a destination vacation. It is a bit further from the mainland than most of the other islands, meaning it will take a while by ferry to get there, but it is well worth it.

Here you can easily spend a good few days exploring the island and never repeat your actives or even visit the same restaurant. There are so many things to do here that you might not even know where to start. This island is one of the most picturesque of them all and a great place to visit.
