Those that advise you that “If you go to Greece you MUST go to Santorini or Mykonos” have … only been to Santorini and/or Mykonos! They are great islands for different reasons but totally not “Greek”! Go, visit, see, and … leave!
The best choice is the small islands where all travelers are warmly welcomed into the local communities. These islands could be Donoussa, Irakleia, Koufonisia, Kimolos, Serifos, Antiparos, Ios, Amorgos – to name a few.
There is at least one island that will fit best your sense of having a great time; just do your research and/or contact us. Here is another list of island suggestions for you to Google: Skiathos (Alonissos, Skopelos), Hydra, Naxos, Kimolos, Tinos, Kefalonia, Andros, Mylos or close your eyes and put your finger on the map 🙂
