Which greek island should I visit? Crete or santorini?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to Turkey end of May 2014. We are thinking 4 nights in Istanbul and 3 nights in Cappadocia. We want to end our trip on a Greek Island for 3 nights, but we are having trouble deciding between Crete (elounda) and Santorini.

We have never traveled to any Greek island, so we feel like Santorini is a must, but it seems so touristy and it might be a little cold to enjoy the beach.

Given we have only 3 nights, want to experience great food, beach, and local culture, would you recommend crete or santorini? (Other Greek islands are not an option because we are using our points for hotel)

Also, we gathered from our research, every Greek island slightly differs in the cuisine they offer. What's the difference between the food in santorini and crete and which island has better authentic food?
