Cheap and expensive islands in Greece

Naxos

Andros is the northernmost of the Cyclades Islands, a group which includes Mykonos and Santorini. However, despite being a popular spot for Europeans with summer homes, Andros has not yet experienced the mass tourism that its neighbours have. And it’s all the better for it!

Thanks to its relative peace and quiet, food and accommodation prices on Andros won’t break the bank.

The largest of the Cyclades, Naxos is home to some of the best beaches in the island chain and there’s a wide range of things to see and do. Despite that, it’s far cheaper than Mykonos or Santorini!

For beach bums, head to the west coast, where there are miles and miles of sandy beaches, as well as some stunning swimming and snorkelling spots.

Adventurous travellers should head for the island’s interior. The highest peak in the Cyclades, Mount Zeus, stands 1,004 metres above sea level and makes for a challenging yet fun hike.

Stopping off at mountain villages during your hike will introduce you to homemade wine, cheese, and kitron liqueur.
