For those who are looking for a stunning beach destination for their next vacation, Greece is an obvious choice. Don’t limit yourself to Mykonos and Santorini, though. There are plenty of other islands worth adding to your travel itinerary, including the Dodecanese Island Group — a collection of 12 large islands and numerous smaller ones surrounded by crystal clear waters and pristine beaches in the south-eastern Aegean Sea.
As the most famous island in Greece, it’s not surprising that Mykonos is a hot travel destination. It’s about to get even more exciting this summer, though, thanks to the opening of its newest resort, Cali Mykonos.
The Greek island of Milos is more than just the number one destination on Travel + Leisure’s list of “The Top 25 Islands in the World.” With its stunning beaches and sparkling blue waters, it’s also the chosen photoshoot location for Louis Vuitton’s latest brand campaign, Towards a Dream.
Milos is one of Greece’s volcanic islands, located in the heart of the Aegean Sea. It is known as one of the most laid-back and most exotic Greek islands, and there are plenty of opportunities here to sight-see, enjoy delicious food, and learn about Greece’s rich history.
