With some of the Cyclades' best restaurants, wineries, and boutique hotels, Santorini has plenty going for it. Multi-coloured beaches, cobbled streets, and fascinating architecture only add to its unique appeal. But the highlight for many is Santorini's stunning sunsets, which when viewed from the gorgeous hilltop village of Oia, are sure to take your breath away.
Alongside lush scenery and unspoilt beaches, Corfu also plays host to fascinating historical artefacts. Italian influenced architecture, chic boutiques and rustic tavernas are all on show in the pedestrian-only old town. Out-of-town excursions include the church-topped islet of Pontikonissi, the 19th-century neo-classical Achillion Palace in Gastouri, and the monastery village of Paleokastritsa.
Thanks to a coastline stretching 650 miles, Crete is home to hundreds of beautiful beaches. One of the most exotic is Balos, with its crystal-clear water that resembles the beaches found in the Caribbean. But no trip to Crete would be complete without witnessing the pink sand of Elafonísi, which is complemented by shallow waters and cedar trees.
Experience an authentic slice of everyday life on the laid-back island of Kos. This rural destination still has a generous number of beaches and resorts to choose from but with a gentler pace than its nearby neighbours. Take a stroll along its lively port for the sights and smells of an archetypal Greek island.
After exploring Little Venice and snapping a photo of the iconic five white windmills, your attention is sure to turn towards Mykonos' pulsating nightlife. Most partygoers will head straight to Paradise Beach, where things kick-off around mid-afternoon and don't stop until the early hours. The old town also has plenty of bars and clubs to choose from.
