A historically important country composed of thousands of islands (227 of which are inhabited) in the Mediterranean, Greece offers a vibrant nightlife, beautiful beaches, wonderful cuisine, passionate music, ancient history and endless coastlines.
A trip to the Greek Islands is on most, if not all, travelers bucket lists. Each island offers a different vibe and things to visit, so selecting which islands to include in your getaway can be tricky. The islands are divided into 6 main groups plus stand-alone, Crete. It is easier to travel within a group of islands as multiple ferries and hydrofoil options exist; traveling between groups of islands is possible, but more complicated as it requires air travel.
Mykonos and Santorini are in the Cyclades and are quite easy to travel between. Mykonos arguably has the best nightlife in all of Greece as well as some of the best restaurants and several stunning beaches. Santorini on the other hand is an essential island to visit (picture the white houses and blue domed roofs from just about every article or movie about Greece) as it has some of the finest wineries and offers dreamy sunsets like no other, overlooking the volcano. Lastly, there are also amazing beaches you can explore in Santorini that have black, red, white or other varieties of sand.
