Went with ym family last year, best holiday ever. very friendly locals, great food, and I recommend the boat trips to more secluded coves.
I visited this beautiful isle last summer and my family and I had a wonderful time. It truly is a lovely place, well worth a trip. The locals were kind and English was spoken all over the isle. Food was good and very fresh. All in all a remarkable holiday.
Yes, Halki full of British tourists, overun with them to be honest, but a pleasant enough island and some nice villas
I have lived in this beautiful island ....it is the paradise
Symi is so nice once you've been to it, it makes you feel dizzy from the beautiful sights
Kalymnos or Kalimnos
I have visited Kalymnos many times a lovely quiet typical greek island my favciourite place in the world.
Karpathos, Wow get to see it befor its to late Olympus is outstanding, and ok so it may seem a little staged but so is Whitby its all they have.
Symi at first glance is a picture postcard of a place,quiet and peaceful and it does not dissapoint.Lovely cuisine,nice walks,lovely warm people. Visit Pedi beach,bit pepply but ok for nuddy sunbathing,also taxi boats to sandier spots and local festival end of August,Greek traditional music hard to beat.Symi is a hidden treasure,don,t tell anyone about it,keep it to yourself.Do yourself a favour,give it a try.
Astypalea or Astypalia
Astypalaia is an hidden gem which hopefully will remain relatively undiscovered by mass tourism. Beautiful beaches, which other than in July and August, remain quiet and peaceful.
The majority of tourists are from Athens with few international visitors. However, the island is certainly geared for the influx of tourists, with a lot off building work having taken place, creating a large number of reasonably priced apartments and hotels. If you like quiet Greece, this island is a must for you!
Astypalea or Astypalia
A beautiful island that has sadly begun to be spoilt by rapid development both in rural parts between Astipalea town and Livadia and, much more importantly, by unwise and often illegal building in the Archeologically protected High Town (the Chora). Glorious beaches and friendly people but don't go in August - it's just too crowded (mainly with Athenians)!
