Mallorca or Greek Islands HELP

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I desperately want a holiday in the sun. I am from South Africa and have been stuck in my boyfriend's rainy, gloomy England for the duration of my Summer.
We have a not-so-healthy-budget as we have just surpassed student-status so that is to be considered.
Ok, the dream: Enchanting turquoise seas lapping onto white sandy beaches with interesting landscape as a back-drop. Some sort of culture and local history and a feel of being somewhere other than home... Yummy, exotic cuisine, delicious beach-side cocktails... My nightmare is the tourist, man-made-from-nothing, Sharm El Sheikh. We want something romantic, unique, islandy, something beautiful to keep as a memory forever.
So far we have considered Cala D'Or (the covey beaches look like a dream) but i fear it may be a tourist manefestation. It's said to be a holiday resort. Does that mean it is not a town and has no history? Is it purpose-built? We then looked at Chania, Crete. I'm afraid the coastline may be too flat and not have the enchanting beauty of turqouisey seaed Mallorca. But on the otherhand, it looks historical and truly Grecian, which is what we want. Another option is Rhodes Island?
Any advice would be so appreciated, other suggestions will be considered!
Thanks a lot,
Jessica
