what is the best Greek island?

Santorini:

Pros:
Official name Thira, is the most popular of the Greek islands. The island is a remnant of a volcanic caldera. The view when you arrive at the port is breathtaking. Santorini is part of the Cyclades group in the Aegean sea. The island was the place of one of the largest volcanic eruptions known in history named the Minoan eruption which occurred 3,500 years ago.
The center town is named Fira. Here you can find small streets known as sokakia, painted in the well known white Aegean color. There are many souvenir shops and restaurants, bars and clubs in this area. From here, you will also find cables cars or a downhill path that leads to the old port. There is a panoramic view of the caldera from the top of the town.
Oia is the most popular place to see the sunset due the town’s location. For a few seconds you can see the magical event where the colors of the sunset touch the white houses creating a stunning view. It is located in northwest of the island. In the late 19th and early 20th century, there was a merchant fleet between Alexandria and Russia. Here you can also find restaurants, tourist shops and plenty of other things such as the Naval Maritime museum.
There are many other towns in Santorini as well. Some located on the beaches of the island and some inland.
Cons: During high season Santorini can be very expensive. It is a commercial island. There are many tourists throughout the year but especially in the summer. There are very slim chances you will find the perfect spot to see the sunset due to the amount of people there. You will need to book all accommodations ahead
of time as you will not find ferry tickets or a place to stay if you leave it for last minute. Although Santorini has plenty of beaches including the red beach(red sand) and black beach (black sand) the island is not known for beautiful beaches. Keep in mind that the waters are also deep.
