Travelling to Greece for 10 days and need a little help regarding our options:
Basically for 6 days in between we need an island which isnt; too commercial, is beautiful and we can have a relaxing time.
Now the points to consider:
The idea is to take a ferry from Athens (Blue Star since I get seasick on the faster one) and do a distance of 4-5 hours. Spend 6 days on 1 (even 2 if you suggest) and then take the ferry to Santorini.
I did 2 weeks in Paros last year and found it absolutely charming.However, I want to see another island now.
Found Naxos too commercial.
August is super busy so for now we came across good options in TINOS, SYROS.
My friend in Paros suggested Amorgos (but then the ferry ride is 9 hours). Tinos is suppose to be really small acc to her and Im not sure what to expect there. SYROS she isnt a fan but I found it pretty in the pictures.
Our requirement is a beautiful island, with not too crazily expensive accommodations and a super relaxing time by the beach, swimming etc.
Please suggest some other islands on this route and give me feedback on Tinos.
We are not the nightclubbing types, but enjoy nice dinners , fun restaurants etc.
