Greek isle choice for first timers

Jump to last reply

I'm starting to drive myself crazy so wondered if I could get some of the experienced Fodorites to weigh in. A planned trip in mid June will be our first time to Greece for a family of 4; our interests lie in a bit of beach and swimming time, beautiful scenery, good food, maybe a fair amount of young people (for the young adult children in this group!) although parents do not want to be surrounded by hoards of partiers either, nice walks, villages or old towns to wander through.
I was considering Crete as our island destination, but every time I see photos of Mykonos and Santorini, the lovely blue water and gorgeous views make me wonder if we should be headed there. Am I being unfair to Crete? - I know it's a fantastic island full of history -- just the photos of Crete make me think of our more familiar California landscape.
Opinions?
