Drove round Rhodes last week.

Interesting place. Very two-sided in terms of tourism

With my limited experience of Greek Islands, I'm not going to contradict you.

Santorini is beautiful.

Refreshing to see a place of beauty and very few tattoo riddled quality women!

Stayed on Ios for two months in 1973 slept on the beach the locals were the friendliest people I have ever come upon.It was paradise then don't know about now.

Been round a lot of the islands, Crete is probably the most diverse because of its size ( about the same  size as Wales)
Lindos in Rhodes is a great place.
Mykonos is an experience..
If you have the time its good to island hop and take in some of the smaller`ll always get a room

I've been to two. Both smelled of bad sewerage treatment. And only place I've been to where the toilet had a "no toiled roll down toilet" sign and you crapped then put toilet roll in the fly buzzing bin.

I think it's because their sewerage pipes are like 12" for a main sewer or something and 2" as feeds or something?!

Lindos (Rhodes) is really nice, been there twice, would go back.
Kos my favourite, 23 trips there says it for me.

Fond memories from my youth of Aegina.Ended up there for a week after Inter Railing through Europe.

The good thing about the Greek islands is that there are so many of them you can find one to suit what you want (party, quiet, historical etc.).

The Greek people are really nice and friendly (and not in a false way). And they need our tourism more than ever now.

yes your right gin will probably go back next year but undecided as to where. I think some of the refuges may have impacted on some of the islands

Santorini is stunning

Approached it on a ferry unawares whilst interrailing in 1980 - unforgettable

Also like Mykonos, Paros
Report donny osmond September 10, 2016 8:23 PM BST
paros was lovely, not to be confused with poros which is
nice too

kefalonia worth a visit

I went up to the top of Oia on a donkey ' sh1t myself as mine was on the edge next to a very small wall overlooking the cliff!!

Fira is a cracking town. A boat trip out to go to the volcano and swim in the hot springs is brilliant.

Stayed in a gorgeous hotel with a private beach and away from the busy towns. Plenty of restaurants/bars.

The food in Greece lags behind the likes of France though.

Been to most of them, and Santorini by far the best looking/ most beautiful place.

Not stayed there though , only day visited so not sure about the night stuff, Kefalonia is my favourite- lots to see, and good(not crazy) nightlife, and the folk are really nice.

Corfu & Rhodes nice but you take yer chances with where you end up, the people on all the islands I visited were superb, really easy going.

Kos good crack, Mykonos is nice place but it is a big gay place so be aware of that before you go.

All islands better than the likes of Turkey/ Malta/ Cyprus etc, but that's only my opinion.
