Although most Greek islands are suitable for holidays with children, Milos and Elafonisos seem to stand out.
Elafonissos and Milos are chosen as suitable destinations for family holidays with children by the British blogger Jenny Eaves, who recently visited the two islands after a planned trip organized by the Municipalities.
Mrs Eaves owns the website monkeyandmouse.co.uk and has a following of 50,000 on Instagram and 20,000 on Twitter. It also works with major agencies such as Bookings for you, inews, the Telegraph and Families Central Scotland Magazine. Her presentations take the form of a travel guide with directions and suggestions for attractions and activities in each location that are kid-friendly and enjoyable.
In her text about Milos, after pointing out that it is “a beautiful jewel in the Aegean Sea”, she writes in her introductory note that it has a natural harbor and “calm turquoise seas for swimming” and adds: “The natural beauty of the island and the Mediterranean climate make Milos a popular choice of the Cyclades islands to visit.”
For Elafonisos, which he writes is not as well known to UK tourists as other Greek islands, it is one of the top holiday spots. Beyond the beaches of the island, he makes special mention of the church of Agios Spyridon which is located on an islet connected to the rest of the island by a bridge and where, as he writes, many weddings and baptisms are organized every year.
Both travel guides are accompanied by numerous photos of landscapes and selected foods of the rich gastronomy.
Milos also stands out among the world’s favorite islands
In the meantime, let’s say that by winning readers’ votes one after the other in foreign media, Milos is gaining ground and entering the favorite islands of travelers from all over the world.
After Travel+Leisure, Milos won another readers’ vote, this time from the British Guardian. The value of such distinctions is inestimable considering that millions of former and future visitors to the island choose it based on their own criteria alone. And this constitutes the best advertisement for the whole world, since the selection and ranking is completely infallible.
The truth is that the entries made on the occasion of visits or meetings with journalists have their value, even those that are paid in the context of an EOT advertising campaign. But the message of a vote among readers is absolutely resounding. Milos deserves it thanks to the variety of interests but also thanks to the professionalism of its residents and, above all, those involved in accommodation, catering and entertainment.
