Lesser-known Greek Islands

There’s nothing more exhilarating than fnding your own slice of paradise in a golden bay lapped by azure waters. Try these little-known islands for a chance of escaping the crowds.
The tranquil setting of Loggos Harbour, Paxos

Sifnos, Cyclades


Since Nikólaos Tselementés from Sifnos wrote the frst Greek cookbook in 1910, it has had a reputation for producing great chefs. Sifnos Farm Narlis’s classes explore and celebrate both the island’s agricultural and culinary traditions. Students gather fresh vegetables and herbs, and do plenty of eating (; classes from £45).


The handsome, whitewashed monastery of Chrysopigi dates back to 1650, though it stands on the site of an even earlier church. It perches on an islet connected to the shore by a tiny footbridge, and you can reach the monastery on a superb walk from the village of Faros (about 40 minutes one way); en route you’ll walk along beautiful, azure Chrysopigi beach, home to two excellent tavernas.
