It’s fair to say that some of the Mediterranean islands are the life and soul of summer holidays, with thousands of holidaymakers flocking to their shores year after year to top up their tan and get their dose of summer sun. But, what happens when all you want is a taste of the quiet life? Is there a Mediterranean island that would accommodate? Sure there is!
While the popular island hotspots, such as Majorca and Ibiza, have their fair share of quiet, more tranquil resorts, it’s the less popular islands that hold the key to true relaxation. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle and spend a week or two in the sun without the inevitably overcrowded beaches, here are some of the best places to go.
