Mediterranean Islands You Might Not Have Heard Of

Mediterranean Islands You Might Not Have Heard Of

If your heart is longing for a vacation, but you would not want to travel to the Cliché getaways, here is a list of relatively untouched Mediterranean islands. 

 Mediterranean Islands You Might Not Have Heard Of

Chrissi island Greece: 

Daydreaming, swimming, trekking, or simply losing yourself in the largest naturally formed Lebanon cedar forest in Europe is possible in Chrissi island. You could choose to do these at Chrissi Island, one of the 81 uninhabited Isles around the island of Crete. Apart from the beach qualities, the island is also full of cedars trees as old as 300 years. 

Hvar Island:

Hvar Island in Croatia is regarded as a jewel of the Dalmatian Islands. Hvar Island has been an important port for the Greeks, Romans, and Byzantines. Versatile history at architectural monuments attracts not only curious tourists but also scientists, historians, and archaeologists as well. The island also features rich nature, great beaches, and fresh air since it is away from the polluted civilization.

Cabrera Spain: 

Most of the travelers have heard of the likes of Ibiza and Mallorca in the Balearic Islands of Spain, but few have ventured to Cabrera, a part of the same island chain. Cabrera is around an hour by boat from Mallorca. The uninhabited islet boasts of its conserved sea beds on the Spanish coast. While mainly composed of a crumbling 14th-century castle and a lighthouse, Cabrera is known for its rare wildlife. 


Alonissos is a remote island in the Northern Sporades. Alonissos is home to the National Marine Park of Northern Sporades, a refuge for rare seabirds, dolphins, and the Mediterranean monk seal. The Cretans introduced winemaking at this island. To date, the local Alonissos wine remains excellent.

Susak Sansego at Croatia

Sansego! Does it ring any bell, pizza lovers? Yes! Sansego means oregano which grows in abundance on the island. If you are looking for plenty of sunshine, endless blue waters, wine, and fresh fish, Susak Sanego will not disappoint you. A ferry ride from Mali Losinj, the island of Susak, is situated in the Northern Adriatic.

Gilli Islands Indonesia: 

Everyone's heard of Bali, Indonesia, but there are three little remote islands. Each island has its own unique appeal. Gili Air, Gili Trawangan, and Gili Meno- that harkens back to what Phi Phi Island in Thailand used to be like. Popular among backpackers, the Gili Islands sits off the coast of Lombo and is known for its party scene, coral reefs, and beaches. 

 Cephalonia Island:

If you are looking for an adventurous Mediterranean island vacation, Cephalonia Island in Greece would be the right one. It is situated in the heart of an earthquake zone. The island has a rich diversity with many endemic and rare species. Do not miss out on checking the Melissan Lake, the Drogarati caves, and the Koutavos lagoon in Argostoli while you are here. 

 Djerba Tunisia

Djerba Tunisia is the largest island of Africa and the fastest-growing tourist attraction. Djerba is situated in the Gulf Of Gabes, off the coast of Tunisia. The theory of great things comes in small packages, holds true for Djerba at this exotic island. It is spread in little over 500 sq km, yet there is no dearth of recreational activities here from adventure sports to fishing there is much one could indulge in.

Do visit these lesser-known Mediterranean islands.
