Mykonos, Santorini, Naxos or Paros?

Jump to last reply

We're planning on being in Greece in late May for our honeymoon and currently have about 9-10 days set aside for Greek islands (we will have a day or two in Athens on each end of the trip). It's our first time visiting Greece and so far we were thinking Mykonos, Santorini and one other island so it's not too rushed.

We were thinking of Naxos or Paros for the third island - looking through past topics it seems like both have their fans (possibly with a slight edge to Naxos) but is there any reason to choose one over the other? Would one or the other fit in better with the rest of the itinerary and give us something we wouldn't get with Mykonos or Santorini? We're generally very laidback travelers, love walking around a place, photography, and good food is important to us. Or is there another island we should consider instead of Naxos or Paros for our last island?

Lastly, we were currently thinking of splitting our time equally among the 3 islands - but do you think we should spend more time in any 1 of the 3?
