Travel + Leisure is a travel magazine based in New York City, and is known as one of the world’s most influential travel brands.
Every year this magazine holds their World’s Best Awards survey, asking millions of readers worldwide to share their opinions on the top cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more.In the category of ‘Europe’s Top 10 Islands’, readers rated islands according to their activities and sights, natural attractions and beaches, food, friendliness, and overall value and the gorgeous Greek island of Santorini, managed to hit the first place.
Santorini is a magical place, which is why it’s claimed the number one spot in this category an astounding 14 times. The stunning sunset from Oia may have become a cliche on Instagram but everyone wants to capture this magic just before evening falls.
Hotels built into the steep cliffs offer views out over the sea that are so fascinating and there’s no reason to leave your suite and its private plunge pool until dinnertime. It is a luxury and traditional island at the same time and it is definitely worth a visit.
