Greek island hopping in June

Jump to last reply

My girlfriend and I are going island hopping in Greece for 15 days in June. We're flying out to Athens and back from Kos so we need to make our way across the Aegean in that time. I was hoping to get some advice on which islands would be best to visit.

We're interested I'm quieter and less touristy islands for the most part. We're not going to spend any time in Athens and no more than one day in Kos. Neither of us drive so the islands we go to need to be practical without needing to hire a car.

From our research so far we're keen to go to Naxos especially. We're also intending to go to Astypalea which sounds appealingly untoursity and would break up the long sea journey between the Cyclades and the Dodecanese.

We'd like to go to one or two other islands as well. Obviously, they need to be logistically feasible given our route. At the moment we're looking at Milos, Syros, the little Cyclades and Santorini (touristy, I know, but it seems like it would be a shame to miss it), but we'd be happy to consider any others as well.

I'd love to hear any recommendations or advice. Thanks!
