Need help with island choice before Santorini

Jump to last reply

We enjoyed our May trip last year so much we are returning again this May. I secured a flight from Athens to Paros arriving around 4pm. We have 7 nights to stay someplace before our time on Santorini. I am considering we could stay several days on Paros with a visit or two to Anti-Paros. My dilemma is choosing another island to visit for a couple of days after Paros that would be an easy travel day to Santorini for the end of our trip. I prefer not to spend all day on the ferry making several stops and will go to whatever island makes sense time wise on the ferry route.

I'm still learning my way around the website for the ferry system and trying to find maps of routes in addition to using Greek Island Hopping Guide.

We were hoping for Folegandros but it doesn't appear to be on the ferry route for Santorini.
Also, Ios is on a good route but I have read that it is quite the party island for 20-somethings but in May it may not be that way and not sure it has enough to offer if you're not a party gal.

Any island suggestions following Paros?

Also, I think I'm leaning towards Nauossa over Parikia on Paros - a little quieter but still tavernas and near the water. I'm still researching places to stay so if you have any favorites I'd appreciate it.

Anti-Paros: is it worth staying a night or two there or leave it as a day trip? Paros is at the beginning of our trip so down time is what we are looking for.

If Paros and Anti-Paros are plenty for 6 full days I am ok with that if you recommend it.


Thanks.
