Blick, Switzerland’s largest newspaper, has urged Swiss and German-speaking travellers to change habits and choose islands without mass tourism. The Greek island of Karpathos was among the suggestions.
The newspaper published a list of 8 European islands which stand out for their traditions, natural beauty and authenticity.
Karpathos stands in fifth place because the magazine said it “is a bright example of quality, as it is also known as the ‘secret’ Santorini.”
The list includes places from France to Italy, and from Malta to Britain, the Netherlands and Germany.
