Greek Islands September 2016

Jump to last reply

I was born in northern Greece and grew up in the US. Since my father passed away over 9 years ago, I haven't felt the desire to go back...until just recently. My husband and I, both in our early 40's, no children, are planning a two week(including travel) trip to a couple islands early next September.

Back in 2005, during a Med cruise, we had stops in Mykonos and Santorini. We found both so incredibly touristy. We are thinking of splitting our time between two chill islands and finishing off with a day in Athens before flying back home. We are desiring beautiful, romantic islands to explore, relax, and enjoy each others company. After some basic research I've narrowed it down... It's currently between Milos & Folegandros or Naxos & Koufonissi.

I know I have plenty of time but I really enjoy the research... it's an enjoyable part of traveling. Can you provide me any advice? Should we plan to fly or ferry to Naxos or Milos? How much time should we spend on each island? Recommendations on places to stay? We'd like a lovely view.
