Set sail to discover the Greek Islands….

Nestled in the azure embrace of the sea, these sun-kissed islands have captivated the hearts and imaginations of travelers for centuries. From ancient legends of gods and heroes to pristine and stunning landscapes, the Greek Islands offer a tapestry of experiences that beckon adventurers from all corners of the globe.

In this section of The Tiny Book, you will find articles and travel guides to my favorite Greek Islands: Some of them,, truly popular and some others, hidden and unexplored. They have been divided by island group so that you can easily pick the area of Greece you’d rather visit.

Scattered across the Aegean and the Ionian and divided into different groups, each island cluster has a unique character.

Let’s embark on a journey of discovery where history, beauty, and the allure of the Mediterranean converge to create the unforgettable tapestry of Greek island life.


The Cycladic group boasts iconic destinations such as Mykonos and Santorini. Famous for their white-washed architecture, crystal-clear waters, and exciting nightlife, these are among the most visited destinations in Greece.


Sprinkled near the Turkish coast, the islands in the Dodecanese cluster unfold tales of ancient civilizations and medieval influences. Rhodes, with its medieval city, and Kos, adorned with ancient ruins, stand as testaments to the region’s history and culture.


A lush landscape in the Ionian Sea, this group includes popular destinations such as the islands of Corfu, Kefalonia, and Zakynthos. These islands are known for their green landscapes, Venetian architecture, and turquoise waters, and they offer a serene retreat away from the bustling mainland.


Close to Athens, the Saronic Islands, including Aegina and Hydra, are adorned with neoclassical charm. These islands are perfect for those seeking a quick escape from the mainland, offering a blend of history, culture, and natural beauty.


Located in the northeastern part of the Aegean Sea, this group includes Lesbos, Thassos, and Chios. Home to maritime stories and medieval architecture, these islands preserve the most authentic Greek traditions.


Encompassing gems such as Skiathos, Alonissos, and Skopelos, these islands evoke a sense of untouched wilderness, inviting visitors to explore dense pine forests, pristine beaches, and a slower pace of life. 


Crete is the largest and perhaps most diverse island in Greece. And it is also the main interest of this blog. The Tiny Book was born as a place to discover everything about Crete, and in this section you will find the most valuable guides to visit Crete like a local!


Euboea or Evia is the second-largest Greek island after Crete and an integral part of the Greek archipelago. Stretching along the eastern coast of mainland Greece, Euboea is a hidden paradise connected to the mainland by a bridge, offering a seamless blend of accessibility and island tranquility.
