🏝️ The 5 best and worst Greek islands to visit 🇬🇷

We are big fans of the Greek islands ourselves, so we've been eagerly following a poll conducted by the UK-based magazine "Which?", where the most famous among them were rated by travellers. Take a look at how your favourites stacked up.

Published by

The magazine "Which?" — a UK-Based magazine dedicated to ranking things based on polls — recently called on its readers to rate their favourite Greek islands according to the following predefined criteria:

  • Beaches

  • Food & Drink

  • Accommodation

  • Sights

  • Scenery

  • Shopping

  • Tranquillity

  • Price-quality ratio

After evaluating all the votes, 10 islands emerged that had enough mentions to allow for meaningful judgment. For each of these islands, an overall score was then formed from the individual criteria, according to which the islands can be ranked. We have listed the top 5 and the bottom 5 for you.

ℹ️ Remember, the ranking does not reflect the opinion of our team.
