The Telegraph, a British daily newspaper, recently highlighted 14 of Greece’s least populated islands as ideal travel destinations, after the coronavirus lockdown is lifted.
The list includes the islands of Kimolos, Tilos, Folegandros, Kastelorizo, Halki, Psara, Koufonissia, Sikinos, Schinoussa, Donoussa, Anafi, Agathonisi, Iraklia and Marathi.
“There are queues to take photos at Santorini’s most scenic spots, so escape to Folegandros, a one-hour ferry-ride to the south. Those who make the journey will find the same volcanic landscapes, sugar-cube architecture and beautiful sunsets, but only 47,000 annual visitors compared to Santorini’s 5.5 million,” the article notes about Folegandros.
Furthermore, The Telegraph suggests that summer holidaymakers should visit Psara as “the island’s beaches are almost always quiet.”
Sikinos: “This island, between Ios and Folegandros, has some of the most attractive scenary in the Cyclades and visitors can expect homely tavernas and caique fishing boats that leave from the harbour village of Alopronia for remote beaches. Kastro, a 15th-century fortified settlement on a clifftop 280m above the sea is home to the Zoohohou Piyis Monastery, whose name means “life-giving fountain.” There is also a blue-domed church, Panayia Pantanassa…”
