Syros features on Forbes list of the '5 Underrated Mediterranean Islands'

American business magazine Forbes, has recently published a list of the ‘5 undervalued islands of the Mediterranean’.

Famous for its warm climate and impressive natural beauty, the Mediterranean is the favourite summer destination worldwide.

Once the COVID-19 pandemic is over, travellers will swiftly return on airplanes.

“For those seeking an exclusive escape without facing massive crowds of tourists, these five idyllic isles are ideal destinations,” travel contributer Jared Ranahan writes.

One of the 5 locations named includes the beautiful Greek island of Syros.

“Though often overshadowed by neighbouring Mykonos, the Greek island of Syros is a true gem of the Cyclades, providing visitors with gorgeous architecture, a bustling nightlife, and sunny beaches,” he added.

According to Ranahan, some of the activities visitors to the island can do include:

  • Strolling down the charming cobblestone streets of Ermoupoli
  • Trying sugary loukomi
  • Visiting the Archaeological Museum of Syros, a fascinating collection housed in the island’s stately city hall

“Those seeking out a picturesque beach perfectly fit for sunbathing should head to the southern reaches of the island where Komito Beach, Ampela Beach, and many other idyllic options can be found,” he concluded.
