Teeming with ancient history and set against stunning backdrops, the Greek islands are unlike any other place on Earth.

They attract every type of traveller, from backpackers to celebrities, all looking to bask in the relaxed way of life, take in the stunning scenery, and enjoy the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

Having lived, studied, and vacationed in Greece, I’ve had the opportunity to visit quite a few Greek Islands, which only scratches the surface; there are 6,000 islands in total, though only 227 Greek Islands are inhabited.

Hopping around the Greek islands you’ll quickly learn that every island has its own unique personality and story to tell. But since we don’t all have the luxury of being able to see them all, here is our list of the best Greece Islands to visit for 2023!

The Best Greece Islands To Visit in 2023!

1. Hydra


This quirky Greek island is the only of its kind that outlaws vehicles, so you will need to get around on foot or by using one of the island’s donkeys.

In the past, Hydra, or Ydra or Idra as it’s also known, drew acclaim for being an artist/writer’s colony, but these days it’s more frequented by Athenian city-dwellers on weekend getaways.

The large majority of Hydra’s population lives in the center of town where all of the tavernas and restaurants can be found. Come to this Greek island expecting a quiet retreat and stunning Venetian architecture.

It’s a small island and doesn’t take long to explore, which makes it perfect for those looking for a Greece Island to visit for a weekend.

It’s also very near to Athens, which makes it a great island to visit on a day trip from mainland Greece if you are short on time.

Tip: Do not rely on Hydra to be a beach escape, as they are found sparingly and are extremely rocky.

2. Aegina

Aegina is only a quick 30-minute hydrofoil ride from the main port of Piraeus making it an easy choice for tourists who are seeing Athens sights but don’t have the time to island-hop.

The beaches on this Greek Island are rather lackluster, but the center is filled with cute cafés perfect for escaping the summer heat.

Aegina is famous for its production of pistachios, be sure to pick up a bag from one of the many shops located near the port.
