The Greek Island Of Milos Voted The Best In Europe
Each year Travel + Leisure magazine asks readers to share their opinions on top travel experiences such as islands, cities, hotels, cruise ships, and more. The islands on the top 15 list have been rated according to their sights, natural scenery, beaches, friendliness, overall value, and of course, food!

4 great Greek islands made the list of the 15 best islands in Europe: Crete, Paros, Santorini, and Milos. Milos, is in fact, the grand winner as it was voted the best European island for 2019!

"One of the Cyclades, Milos is known as the place where the famed Venus de Milo statue was discovered. But visitors today still find their own treasures while exploring this 58-square-mile island. Stroll its cobblestoned streets, hike volcanic craters, wander through ruins, or stretch out on the groomed white-sand beaches overlooking turquoise waters. Even the largest town, Adamantas, which has two museums and a multitude of boutique hotels, remains largely free of the crowds prevalent on the other Greek isles. And, as one fan pointed out, “it’s very affordable.”

Other islands who made it to the list are Isle of Skye in Scotland, Ischia in Italy, Malta, and Madeira in Portugal.
