Skiathos is another favourite and Koukanaries is the resort I stay at. Gorgeous beaches within easy reach and a laid back atmosphere in the evening. Also you are guaranteed a seat on the bus into town! The town is fantastic at night time too if you want something a bit livelier.
Skopelos is my third favourite. Very uncommercialised, they didn't even try and cash in on Mama Mia after it was filmed there! It feels like Greece was 40 years ago. I love it and this is my destination for 2019 😎
He doesn't like anywhere too hot so have been avoiding researching them. However, I think he'd love the atmosphere & beauty of the islands. I need to find one with a cool breeze. I can't cope with lots of flies or wasps 😱.
We now tend to go to Fuerteventura for the cool wind & minimum flying insects.
Donoussa, Kassos, to name a few. Not easy to pick out of a list that numbers 36. Also have to name Crete, as we have been there 16 times to 9 different resorts, with the size of the island there are so many variations of resort, and scenery ,there are some we would never go to, but, so many more, something for everyone.
I've noticed however, that some of the smaller Islands can only be reached by ferry from a larger one. I think this would put us off.
Lesbos (Lesvos) is also great. Probably the least commersialised island and the cost of living is cheaper than most other Greek islands.
Used to love Alykes on Zante, but it is a very British resort with quite a few karaoke, tribute act bars and because of that I no longer go there
Looking to return to Kos next summer
Our issue was that I only have 2 days holiday left this year so we were very restricted. I normally work Tuesday,Wednesday and Thursday but by working Monday the week we go away and Friday the week we come back I managed to get a week. The downside is that coming back we land in Edinburgh just after midnight on the Thursday night so we will get home around 1.30am on the Friday and I am working at 9am.On 2nd September 2019 at 10:04am, Fiona said:
Elaine I live in Aberdeen and I got a great price with BA flying from Aberdeen to Heathrow and on to Zante. You do have to book early though to get it. Might be worth checking the next time?
