Greece is undeniably breathtaking, with its stunning azure waters, white-washed buildings, and iconic blue roofs that make for picture-perfect Instagram posts. However, one Greek island stands out among the rest in terms of social media love.

According to a recent survey by Kinglike Concierge, Santorini has been crowned the most "Instagrammable" Greek island. The survey analyzed Instagram hashtag data for over 50 Greek islands, and Santorini came out on top with a whopping 7,828,338 posts related to the island.

Santorini is renowned for its picturesque white-washed townships perched on craggy volcanic cliffs, offering stunning views of the crystal-clear Mediterranean waters. It's no surprise that this island is a favorite destination for travelers, attracting about 1.5 million visitors annually. In addition, Santorini is consistently recognized as one of the best places in the world to witness a breathtaking sunset, making it even more appealing to photographers.

Thanasis Mougios from Kinglike Concierge expressed that social media plays a significant role in people's travel decisions, stating that it is intriguing to see the influence of social media in promoting the culture and beauty of Greek islands, with hopes of inspiring others to visit.

Crete, Greece's largest island, closely followed Santorini in second place, with over 6 million posts using related hashtags. Mykonos, known for its vibrant party scene, ranked third with 5.4 million posts. It's worth noting that the island of Ios initially came in second but was disqualified from the rankings due to its name's similarity to Apple's operating system, "iOS."

Completing the top five islands are Kos in fourth position, with 2.8 million posts, and Rhodes in fifth place, with 2.5 million posts. However, it's safe to say that Greece offers countless picturesque locations, ensuring that wherever you go in the country, you're bound to capture an Instagram-worthy shot.
