We’re planning a trip to the Greek Islands during Spring Break 2018 (late March thru first week of April), we’re a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers (16, 14). We travelled to Greece back in 2016 during the same time and had an awesome adventure (Meteora, Nafplio, Delphi, Athens and visited both Naxos and Santorini).
We loved it so much, we’re going back but this time we’ll focus on the Greek Islands. Our plan is to stay 4 days in a new to discover island (or Naxos again), 3 days in Santorini for sure, and then the last 2 days in Athens.
We’d like to visit Delos (side trip from Mykonos) but there are no tour operators from Naxos during our travel period, so unfortunately that’s out of the question. Mykonos, we can live without, besides crowded and expensive, I’m certain we can find the same charm in other islands… My question is, what island do you recommend to visit and spend 4 days in our itinerary? We’ve thought of Milos with its unique landscape. There’s still lots to discover in Naxos, our kids loved the freedom to wander on their own in town and buy souvlaki when we stayed in Naxos town… We love to visit ruins and enjoy the weather, maybe the kids will take a quick plunge in the ocean… Also, we’d like to avoid Crete or Rhodes, I’m certain they’re amazing but we just want to relax and not feel we’re in a city… Greek island charm is what we’re after…Any suggestions are appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
