Some Not so popular but beautiful Greek islands

Greece island of many breathtaking islands. Many globe trotters visit this beautiful land every year to experience these remarkable islands. In this article, we are going to discover some less known but marvelous Islands with panoramic views.


Floating between the islands of Kos and Tilos, Nisyros is part of the Dodecanese group of islands, and is known for being the youngest volcanic island in Greece. You can safely walk in the craters—the last violent eruption occurred in 1888. Like many islands in the south-eastern Aegean, Nisyros was at its most prosperous in the 5th and 4th centuries BC. One notable element of modern Nisyros is that its houses, temples, and castles have virtually all been built with some component of the volcano - black lava, pumice, red and white rust, etc. Today, the island is a green enclave primarily known for its nature tourism and hot springs.


Located south of Corfu on the northern side of the Ionian Sea, Paxos is said to have almost been the southernmost tip of Corfu. According to lore, Poseidon, god of the sea, separated the two by breaking off Paxos with his trident when he needed a place to live with his love Amphitrite.


Milos, another volcanic island, is the southernmost island in the Cyclades. It's known for its horseshoe shape and coastline, which comprises more than 75 beaches of different varieties. It has nearly 5,000 residents, and is also where the famous statue of Venus de Milo was found in 1820. While whitewashed houses on Greek islands are familiar sites, Milos has gone a different route, with small, colourful houses by the sea where fishermen shelter their boats in winter. Also of note are the catacombs of Tripiti, which were discovered in 1844 and appear to have been built toward the end of the 1st century, marking the era when Christians came to Milos.


The most remote island in the Northern Sporades, Alonissos is home to the National Marine Parkof Northern Sporades, a refuge for rare seabirds, dolphins, and the Mediterranean monk seal. It's 13 miles long, almost three miles wide, and has a population of roughly 2,500. Historically, the Cretans are credited with establishing colonies on Alonissos (then known as Ikos) during the Minoan domination of the Aegean Sea, circa 16th century BC. The Cretans also introduced winemaking to the island, and to this day local Alonissos wine remains excellent.
