According to a recent report from National Geographic, Milos and Tinos have emerged as prime destinations for travellers seeking an unforgettable Greek island experience in the summer of 2024.

Milos, often referred to as the "island of colours," boasts stunning landscapes adorned with rock formations painted in vibrant hues of red, yellow, and blinding white. National Geographic highlights the island's unique syrmata, traditional huts carved into the soft volcanic rocks by fishermen, some of which have been transformed into quirky residences right on the water's edge. The island also offers cultural treasures such as catacombs, the ancient theatre, and a replica of the famed Aphrodite of Milos statue.

Meanwhile, Tinos has gained renown as a gastronomic haven in recent years. Blessed with fertile land and abundant local produce, the Cycladic island attracts chefs from nearby Athens, who flock to the island during the warmer months.

The report mentions the Tinos Food Paths gastronomy festival, held annually in May, which kicks off a season of culinary indulgence.

While Milos and Tinos take the spotlight, the report also makes references to other Greek islands across the Ionian, Dodecanese, Sporades, and Cyclades archipelagos, including Santorini, Syros, Sifnos, and Naxos.

In its introductory note, National Geographic highlights the common threads that bind these diverse islands: isolated towns cherished by local food enthusiasts, secluded coves steeped in mythology, and a breathtaking natural beauty that has captivated artists and adventurers for generations.
