37. Island-hop in Greece

Ranked #37 in our countdown of ‘100 Ultimate Travel Experiences of a Lifetime’.


An essential part of the Greek experience, island hopping around some of the most beautiful islands on earth, is all about sun, surf and unforgettable sunsets.

Whether you are after the glamour of Mykonos, the multicoloured cliffs of Santorini or the cobbled streets and ancient history of Rhodes, deciding where to go next is half the fun.

A true blend of culture and bliss, you will never hear anyone complain about the awful time they had in the Mediterranean, and that we can guarantee.


One steamy Greek summer, I island-hopped between Crete, Rhodes, Mykonos, Santorini, Ios and many more magical little specks in the Aegean Sea. Absorbing snippets of ancient culture with dollops of sun-kissed hedonism, it was probably the best summer of my life.
