Greek Islands

It is not easy to choose which of the Greek Islands to visit in Greece. After all, there are over 6000! We’ve done the hard work for you by creating this category with the best Greek islands for families: Crete, Corfu, Rhodes, Naxos, Mykonos, Santorini, Lefkada, Kea, Hydra and Astypalaia. Crete, Corfu, and Rhodes are the large Greek islands and incredibly popular with overseas visitors. They share a history of Venetian rule still visible in beautiful castles, historic towns and fortified ports. However, each island also has its own unique character and something different to offer. On the other hand there are also Naxos, Mykonos, Santorini, Paros, and Milos. These 3 Greek islands are part of the famous Cyclades island group. Think of a dry landscape, whitewashed houses with blue window shutters, white and blue-domed churches, cute looking villages and turquoise waters! Then there is also Naxos. Although Naxos is not as famous as Mykonos or Santorini, we believe that it is the most suitable island for family vacations with young kids. Naxos is a charming and beautiful as the others, but it is less crowded and more authentic. Naxos has many kid-friendly sandy beaches with shallow waters and secluded bays. The island also has an endless choice of family-friendly accommodation options and there is much to do for kids.
