What are the recommended Greek islands to visit? I was thinking I wanted to Travel to Chios this summer
>ruins & history
>beautiful towns
>amazing beaches and most of the island is farms & uninhabited hills & mountains
>seems obscure enough that it doesn't seem tourist trappy

I've never been to Greece though so idk if anyone thats seen a lot of it would have a better recommendation for me

    has everything you want and while not at all obscure never seemed like a tourist trap

    Below Chios is Ikaria and I highly recommend it. The island has a wealth of things to do and so many beautiful villages, but is not touristy like Thira and Mykonos. There is a overwhelming sense of authenticity, not only because there are no gypsies to shove flowers at you. Make sure to visit the Afianes Winery in Raches, by Armenistis on the north coast. Armenistis also has great surfing and food. On the south coast is Agios Kirykos, its biggest town. There's another town in the mountains I'll post the name of later when I remember it. It might just be another part of Raches. Overall 10/10.

    I enjoyed Andros, but it's pretty much just locals.
    Naxos is kind of a tourist trap, but I believe Paros is not as bad (yet)

      >Naxos is kind of a tourist trap
      I was told this was the non tourist trap option between Paros/Mykanos/Naxos. WTF I plan on going to Naxos for 2-3 days in May

    Chios is great. Can recommend. Some great beaches, but also plenty of historical sites to visit. Indeed nice and quiet as well.

    Crete as a whole is nice. Lot’s of areas serviced by bus that is quite authentic. Recommend either Chania or Rethymno. Iraklio is not that special.

      based, this is what i did
      except i rented a car, much better to go to the odd location
      heraklion is nice but but not much, only spent 1 day there and it was more than enough to visit Knossos, the archaeological museum, and the city centre
