Famous British luxury holiday website aluxurytravelblog.com published an article praising the Greek islands, which are a very popular destination for people in the UK. The article focused on “three lesser known Greek Islands worthy of a closer look.”
Fist on the list was the Greek island of Limnos, whose volcanic landscape and beautiful scenery make it an ideal destination for adventurers. Furthermore, the island is full of small hills and sand dunes, as well as a variety of beaches that can charm even the most demanding tourists. “While in the island, taste the local wine, Muscat of Limnos, which has already gained a reputation on its own. The capital, Myrina, is a seafront point of gathering, with small paved alleys, stone mansions and castles,” noted the British website.
Lipsi, a small cluster of islands in the northern part of the Dodecanese near Patmos and Leros, was next on the blog’s list. Lipsi is a small haven for those looking to enjoy the Greek sun and sea, away from the noise of bustling cities. “The capital of the island, Lipsi, offers hotel accommodation and a variety of local produce worth tasting such as thyme honey (prepared in a local way), cheese and wine. Try the local touloumotyri cheese and also a variation of Cottage cheese,” noted the article.
Finally, the Greek island of Kasos, located between Crete and Karpathos, was third on the list. The mountainous landscape is filled with rare wildflowers and birds. The islanders are known for their longstanding maritime tradition that has even touched local architecture. Most houses on the island follow the classic “layout of the captain’s houses (kapitanospita) with white exterior and colored windows, and high ceilings interior.” Visitors will have the chance to enjoy the exotic beaches as well as local products, known for their outstanding quality.
