Islands of the beaten path

If ,like most tourists,you are interested in visiting only Myconos and Santorini you can stop reading now...:):)

If you want to visit some real islands that are not flooded with thousands of tourists and have 1/2 of the prices of the a/m isalnds keep on reading

Here is my personal top 10

1.SIKINOS

http://www.sikinoslucas.gr/index.php/en/

A PARADISE just 50 minutes away from Santorini,the island is exactly like Santorini in....1820...:):)

2. ANAFI

http://www.anafi.gr/en/

Also a stone's throw away from Santorini but with 10 times better beaches and ,well,you will be alone!

3.LEMNOS

http://www.mylemnos.gr/limnos/eng/index.php

a fantastic & large island with AMAZING beaches,low prices and great food....correction KILLER food....also VERY cheap

4.KYTHERA

http://www.kythera.gr/en/

A unique island that has so much to offer plus the BEST HONEY in the world

5.KARPATHOS

http://www.karpathos.gr/

way off the beaten path another treasure island waiting to be discovered

6.ANDROS

http://www.andros.gr/

The queen of Aegean Sea ,the richest and most historic Greek island.

7.IKARIA

http://www.island-ikaria.com/

EVERYBODY in this islands lives to be 100 years old,go there to find why ,shops open at...midnight in some villages and people take it REALLY easy there...if you are in a hurry AVOID...:):)

8.ITHAKI
