Hi Ashjack,

Greece has several hundred islands which all are its own. We need a lot more information to be able to help you.

First of all - look up a good guide book to narrow your choices. The islands are gathered in groups in different archipelagoes - decide where appeals to you the most.

Are you going on a package or DIY ? When do you plan to go ? What are your main interests to see and do ? Any preferences regarding budget and accomodation ?

Have a little look at this list, each location has its own write up, try to select a few that sound good for you,and then come back for advice, or as G.T. says a good guide book is a great place to start. The problem is, with this queation, you will get other peoples personal favourites, not the best location for YOU.

Hi there

It will also help to know how long you wish to go for. Some islands are small and are best for a week's stay, others are large ( Lesvos, Rhodes, Crete, etc) and need more than a week. Where are you coming from? If it's the UK, then see which islands are available on a direct flight basis from your local airport. No good choosing an island then finding out that the only airport that flies there is 200 miles away.

As you are apparently coming from Italy by ferry (oy maybe not ?), the Ionion islands make the most sense. That makes Corfu the easiest to reach, during peak season July/August Kefalonia is possible as well. Other islands will need a connecting ferry of some sort.

There is a wide choice of resorts on Corfu from noisy to relaxing so you can tailor that to what you require.
