My wife and I will be visiting Greece for the first time in July this year. I have been reading thru many of the TA pages and forums on the various islands. We have decided to definitely visit santorini and we are conflicted between Naxos and Milos for the second island. We have been thru many of stanbr and donnyb posts and pictures but still find it very hard to choose. Our itinerary is as follows:
9th July - arrive in athens from mumbai and fly straight to Naxos or Milos
10th to 14th - Either Milos or Naxos (please advise)
14th to 17th - take the morning ferry to Santorini
17th to 19th - fly to Athens
20th - depart to mumbai.
I would like to get your recommendations on the choosing naxos or milos. We would love to be at beautiful beaches, see a lot of natural beauty, do a sailing trip for a day or hald a day, enjoy night life at bars or taverns, have a good greek village experience. I know most of this is available at both the islands but still want your take.
