According to schengenvisainfo.com, the ranking is taking into account the well-traveled team’s personal experiences with scenery, food, beaches, hotel options, and more.

Milos has been chosen as the best destination for a photogenic and dramatic coastline.

The island where the Venus de Milo was discovered offers a diverse and stunning coastline with over 70 unique beaches. From the iconic white cliffs at Sarakiniko to the Papafragas, Milos is a well-preserved gem now gaining popularity on Instagram.

Hydra follows in the second place as the ideal destination for art lovers. It’s the home of the renowned art collector Dakis Joannou and frequented by artists such as Matthew Barney and David Shrigley. From exhibitions in old slaughterhouses to artist residencies at the School of Fine Arts, Hidra has a rich artistic history. The island also offers crystal clear waters.

Sifnos was chosen especially for its cusine. The island is famous for its gastronomic heritage, and offers a unique culinary experience. Descendant of Nicholas Tselementes, the island boasts chickpea croquettes and stewed capers as taverna staples. Traditional dishes like revitháda (baked chickpeas) and Marcelo (lamb with red wine and dill) are slow-roasted in wood-fired ovens at local institutions like To Meraki to Manoli.

Visitors can indulge in nougat wafers at Theodorou in Artemonas or enjoy locally foraged ingredients with an exotic Omega3 twist. Sifnos strikes the perfect balance between understated luxury and unspoiled originality.

Santorini, the island of romance, is next. Its caldera is formed by a volcanic explosion 3,500 years ago. Black-sand beaches, vertiginous cliffs, and exceptional Assyrtiko make it a unique destination.

For those who love culture and prefer to visit Greek islands outside the summer season, Syros is the ideal place to be. There you can find the 19th-century city of Ermoupoli and its rich cultural heritage. The town hosts festivals ranging from animation and dances to classical music and rebetiko, the Greek blues.
