Gay vacations The Other Greek Islands

The Other Greek Islands

We've known about Mykonos and Santorini for years. But where's next?


Most people could respond in seconds when asked to name Greece’s party islands and Mykonos is undoubtedly known as the best gay island in Greece. Likewise, they could probably tell you what they think is the ‘best’ place for views; the one that has been photographed the most. What the masses may not be able to tell you, however, is some of the other Greek islands that aren’t given the same amount of praise – here at Out Of Office, we think they deserve some more recognition.

Naxos

The god Apollo’s unfinished temple stands on this island, literally a giant stone doorway through to views of unblemished blue sea. This isn’t the only unusual addition to the island of Naxos; if you wander far enough into the valley, you might come across an enormous stone statue. Laid on its back, it looks like a giant sculptor left in a hurry mid-way through their creation. The winding cobbled streets and array of sporting opportunities make Naxos a great all-rounder. Stay at Nissaki Beach or the Naxian Collection (pictured above).

Ithaca

This small stretch of land has its place in history as being the Greek legend Odysseus’ home, and Ithaca can still offer you a bundle of adventure. The white pebbled and sandy beaches are surrounded by lush olive groves, giving you a remote feel (helped by the fact there’s only around three thousand inhabitants!). The island is very mountainous, and any hiking is greatly rewarded by the stunning views. Just off the coast of Kefalonia, Ithaca often gets overlooked simply because of its bigger neighbour.

Skopelos

Scattered with sandy-coloured monasteries, Skopelos’ beauty will want to make you sing (that may have something to do with the fact Mamma Mia! was filmed here). That’s not the only reason it should be appreciated, clearly. You can weave your way up Mount Palouki to see the stretch of sea surrounding you and take in that warm but fresh air you can’t get back home. The island is nestled under an abundance of trees, perfect for daily woodland walks as a break from the beach. The easiest way to get there is via a ferry from Skiathos, its neighbouring island.

Milos

North of Crete, Milos sits on the Aegean Sea. Its small fishing villages, churches, marble theatre ruins and unrivalled restaurants paint you an incredible picture of Greek life. Likewise, its beaches are beautiful (what Greek island is complete without them?) From clear white sand to red to black, shells to sand and waters of emerald green or sapphire blue, Milos provides plenty of options. The island’s volcanic history (now considered dormant) has resulted in a colourful composition of rock formations that cover the island. Whether you have an interest in the geology or not, you’ll be able to appreciate the unique patterns they create.

If Milos has tempted you, have a look at our Milos, Paros and Mykonos or Gay Group Trip: Greek Island Hopping itineraries; it complements the other islands nicely.
