Impressive views, some of the best super clubs in Europe, and the ultimate in beach side relaxation, these are our favourite islands to visit for travellers under 39!

Santorini Sunset


Welcome to the most visited, and arguably the most famous of all of the Greek Islands, Santorini!

Santorini is renowned for its world-famous sunsets and breathtaking views out across the caldera, making it the perfect place for those ‘instaworthy’ snaps!

Blue, yellow and orange rooftops provide a stark contrast against the white buildings perched up on the cliff in the town of Oia. This tiny town is home to some of the most expensive real estate on the whole island, with luxurious hotels and boutique bed & breakfasts lining the cliff face.

Whilst the island is frequented by honeymooners and couples alike, the sheer beauty of it means that solo travellers and backpackers simply couldn’t pass it up on their must-do Greek Islands list!

Not only famous for it’s fantastic views out over the Agean Sea, Santorini also produces incredible, unique wine varieties, making it worth a trip to one of the various wineries on the island.

Think party, think Ios!

This Greek Island boasts the largest concentration of bars in one area, with the main town teeming with bars and clubs hidden down alleyways, up hills, in man-made caves and everywhere in between!

This collection of eclectic bars each have a unique theme and charm, making it almost impossible for a pub crawl not to ensue once you step into one of these bars!

Take the famous Ios Shot Challenge, where you can challenge yourself and your mates to down 7 shots in exchange for a free singlet! (Our top tip: share the challenge and collect singlet’s from more than one bar!).

Slammer shots, flaming shots, shots with smoke billowing from them, shots filled with candy ….you name it, there’s a shot for it in Ios- the island that knows how to party!

Although the party never stops on Ios, for those who seek adventure and thrill there is also plenty to be discovered on this island with water sports, hidden caves and crystal clear water in abundance!

This party paradise is where the likes of Mylopotas Beach and hidden coves double as the perfect spot to cure your hangover!

If rest and rejuvenation are right up your alley, then Paros is the perfect island to recharge your batteries from some serious partying on the Greek Islands!

Paros is a haven for golden sand, sparkling blue water, cute seaside markets and fresh seafood!

Jump on-board a traditional motor cruiser and head around the islands of Paros and Antiparos to spend the day discovering hidden bays, jumping off limestone cliffs, exploring secluded beaches and snorkelling in the clearest water you’ve ever seen!

Experience the very best of Greek culture on Paros as you smash plates, eat octopus, drink ouzo and learn to dance like the Greeks during a traditional Greek evening.

Paros is the perfect spot to experience Greek life at a slower pace and take in the tradition and culture of this fascinating country!


Mykonos is the island that really does have it all!

Think crazy day parties that get everyone dancing, insane paint parties and late nights spent at some of the best nightclubs in Europe listening to world class DJ’s, and you’ve just about got the right idea of what to expect from the epic nightlife on Mykonos!

Whilst the non-stop nightlife will keep you busy from dusk ’till dawn, your days on Mykonos will be spent in shaded cabanas, cocktail in one hand, Greek salad in another, moving only to dip into the turquoise water!

If lazing about on the beach isn’t your thing, don’t worry, Mykonos has you covered!

You can spend hours meandering through the whitewashed, cobble stoned streets of the Pirate Town, exploring the famous sites of Little Venice and the Windmills or simply grab a table by the sea and eat some fresh Greek cuisine!

It really isn’t hard to see why people head to Mykonos for a couple of days and are only leaving weeks later!
