Best Greek Island

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow travelers!
I am planning a 4 or 5 night trip to Greece to meet a friend this September. I'm coming from Israel, she's coming from Switzerland. We want to spend 2 days/1 night in Athens exploring the antiquities, but we also want to go to an island for 3 or 4 days. Neither of us has been there although we're both well traveled.

Santorini, Crete and Mykonos get the most attention...I've heard that Santorini has the iconic pictures and is the most touristy. Crete is larger and lusher with more options but not the best beaches.

A friend has suggested Hydra, as it's close to the mainland with good beaches (not our primary reason to go) and things to see and do.

We are willing to island hop or not - please help me out...which islands are your favorite and why?!

Thanks in advance!
