The Greek Islands are stunning and have something for everyone. With that in mind, we're going to share the five best Greek islands to visit this summer. Plan ahead and find the island that best suits you! 1. Crete Crete is one of the biggest Greek islands, so if you're going to visit make sure you spend at least a few days, maybe even a week there. There is so much to do and see. From incredible beaches, interesting history to delectable food. If you are in Rethymno, then definitely make time for the Fortezza, the views are stunning and it's just an incredibly cool place. If you like the outdoors and are a big history buff, then Crete is definitely somewhere you should consider adding to your island hopping list. 2. Santorini If you're feeling a little more flush then Santorini is the place for you. It's quite small, and a perfect pit stop on your island hopping adventure. You could soak up the whole island in a matter of two days! Don't miss the sunset at Oia, but be warned: if you walk down to the port at Fira, you will have to walk all the way back up the hundreds of steps and avoid straying donkeys! Remember to stock up on bottled water: the island does not have safe drinking water from the taps.
