The 100 or so inhabited Greek islands have something for everyone: History buffs can revel in the remnants of millennia of human habitation. Sun-seekers have their pick of countless beaches. Gourmands and wine aficionados will have many opportunities to wine and dine. And adventure seekers can partake in scuba diving, cliff jumping and more.

 

The best all-around islands offering a combination of these experiences are:

Santorini

Santorini is as gorgeous as all the photographs and postcards suggest. It’s worth elbowing through the crowds for its famous views, but you can find quiet spots here as well, like undiscovered beaches, wineries and ruins.
