If you’re looking for some uninterrupted time with your sweetheart, soaking up the beauty of the Greek Isles without the hassle of crowds, salespeople, and traffic, an uninhabited or partially uninhabited island is great way to go. Of the more than 6,000 Greek islands in the Aegean and Ionian Seas, only a few hundred are actually inhabited. The island of Farmakonisi is among the most famous of the uninhabited (Julius Caesar was kidnapped by pirates there during his youth, and he later had the entire population of the island crucified). Ferries do not stop there, but it isn’t difficult to hitch a ride on one of the countless pleasure cruisers that ply the surrounding waters. Take care to go well supplied.
