9 Greek Islands To Escape The Crowds

From Amorgos to Milos, the under-the-radar islands to know for when we can travel.

Simply put, a lifetime wouldn’t be enough to explore the 6,000 islands of Greece, only 227 of which are inhabited. The Greek isles tend to draw global travellers for their whitewashed villages, sparkling blue-green sea, lively choras and fresh fare, but there’s far more to all that than what’s found on the touristy islands of Mykonos and Santorini. There are hundreds of other islands to visit in Greece where you can forgo the crowds in favour of untouched beaches, family-run restaurants and remote beauty—as well as activities that suit your travel style and interests.

Although locally we are still, very much locked down, now is the perfect time to plan a visit toan off-the-beaten path island where you can beat the crowds, experience quintessential seaside charm and satisfy your travel cravings. From the Cyclades to the Ionian islands, here are nine islands matched by travel type, whether you’re looking for adventure or wellness, romance or family time, history lessons or a digital detox.
