4 Tiny Island Escapes
Want to try something a little different than the larger resorts of mainland Europe, what about something a little more intimate? Dotted around the Mediterranean Sea are tiny islands that offer a relaxing atmosphere where you can sit back and enjoy your time in the sun.
At just over 32 square miles, Formentera is one of the smallest of the Balearic Islands. Just south of Ibiza, the island has got some stunning beaches thanks to the ban on buildings being constructed on the shoreline. It doesn’t have its own airport but with Ibiza a short boat ride away, it adds to your holiday experience.
2) La Gomera
The largest island on this list at 142 square miles, La Gomera is still relatively small, especially when you look at the other Canary Islands that attract visitors from all over the world. La Gomera is not as well-known as the other Canaries in the region but is just as stunning.
The small island of Gozo is off the north-west coast of Malta and measures just 26 square miles. Just like Formentera, you’ll have to get a boat but the extra journey time is worth it. The quiet island is perfect if you want a relaxing time by the sea for a week or two.
It’s one of the most popular Greek islands and for good reason, the white windmills and hill top churches give it character. Known for its non-stop party atmosphere, the island attracts young couples from all over Europe. At 40 square miles, it’s neither the largest or smallest island on the list but has excellent attractions and facilities that will keep everyone entertained.
