Greece is home to thousands of islands, making the task of choosing where to go all the more difficult. Fortunately there’s something for everyone; from the hotspots to the hidden heroes, this is our guide to the Greek Islands.
Despite being a hotspot on the tourist trail, Santorini is one of the few destinations you should try and visit at least once in your lifetime. Home to Cycladic architecture, ancient villages, blue-domed roofs and sweeping sea views, the postcard-worthy vistas are unrivalled. To stay, you can’t look past Mystique, an award-winning Luxury Collection Hotel in Oia. Dangling at the edge of the caldera, the cave-style suites offer the best vantage point for the island’s world-famous sunsets.

If you’re looking for fewer crowds, unspoiled beaches, sleepy seaside tavernas and a truly authentic Greek island experience, Serifos is the place for you. A small island in the West Cyclades, it can only be reached by ferry or private boat and is often hailed as the go-to summer destination for Athenians–do as the locals do, they say! COCO-MAT Eco Residences, a restored complex of early 20th century miners’ houses, provide conscious travellers contemporary, one to two-bedroom residences with pared back interiors and eco-friendly initiatives.
This bohemian mecca is one of the country’s most renowned destinations, with discerning travellers flocking to the windy islet every summer. Here you’ll find famed nightclubs spilling out onto sun-kissed beaches, and modern lodgings overlooking the island’s iconic windmills. One such lodging is Myconian Villa Collection, an assortment of terraced rooms, suites and villas built into the mountainside. Stay here for style, privacy and the best service on the island.

Located an easy two-hour ferry from Athens, Hydra is a quaint, history-rich island with a picturesque port village, few beaches, and zero land vehicles. Rustic in beauty and calming in ambience, singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen sought inspiration on the island in the sixties and it’s been seducing creative folk ever since. Stay at Hydrea Hotel, a boutique 8-room property located moments away from the port’s bars, shops and restaurants.
Admittedly not an island, the Peloponnese region in southern Greece is worthy of a visit just because of Amanzoe. Part of Aman Resorts, this Mediterranean outpost it set on a hilltop with panoramic views and features 38 freestanding suites, a private beach club and signature Aman spa.

For peace, quiet and awe-inspiring beaches, head to the Ionian island of Antipaxos. Only 4km long and 3km wide, this tiny island floats south of Paxos and Corfu. Here, there are no shops, no real roads and few tavernas, allowing nature to take centre stage. Frequented by day trips, those seeking solitude can stay overnight in one of the island’s handful of private villas.
