Santorini (1st), Crete (3rd) and Zakynthos (4th) are in the top-10 of best islands in Europe, according to Trip Advisor (Travelers’ Choice Islands Award).
As Trip Advisor mentions in its web site… The island of Crete is a Greek jewel floating in a sea of melted turquoise. The beaches are godly stretches of pillowy sand and smooth pebbles. Its historical and mythological significance can not be ignored: Crete is said to have been to be the birthplace of Zeus, the king of the Gods, and was the site of Europe’s first modern civilization. Archaeological and historical sites abound and make an awe-inspiring break from a sun-soaked day at the beach.
