Which Greek island is best to visit?
That all depends on what kind of traveller you are. All of the islands offer up oodles of sun, sand and the azure sea, but each have their own quirks and differences that set them apart. If you're looking for the ultimate party island, Ios will probably up your street, where you can dance the night away at night and unwind on the beach during the day. If architecture is more your thing, you should go to Mykonos, where the cycladic maze and winding roads give one of the greatest spectacles in all of the greek islands.
What is the best time to visit Greek islands?
In summer you'll get all that lovely weather you've been craving, as the sun beats down over the domed facades and whitewashed bays, but it will also be the time of year where it's most crowded. Try and get some Easter or Autumn sun for all of the beauty and warmth without the heaving crowds.
