    Raise a glass of homemade wine to the island of long life

    The secluded Greek island of Ikaria has been making waves recently, but not because of its nightlife, like nearby Mykonos, or its epic sunsets, like in Santorini—Ikaria's claim to fame is its wealth of centenarians. More people live well into their 100s than almost anywhere else in the western world, and if you ask the locals why (which you probably should), you'll probably like the answer–good food, red wine, and fresh air. Unsurprisingly, the island can be quiet, but it's also unique, welcoming, and utterly charming.

    Fly close to the sun in unspoiled Ikaria

    Unspoiled Ikaria is perfect for intrepid explorers and the ideal spot for keen walkers and hikers. In recent years, surfing has also become particularly popular, and the island's high winds help create perfect conditions for those learning the ropes with this sport. Sailing, canoeing, and kayaking are wonderful ways to see the island from the sea. If you prefer a more aerial view, then climbing and bouldering could set you up perfectly—just make sure you don't make like the island's namesake, Icarus, and get too close to the sun.

    A short guide to a long (and good) life in Ikaria

    Most cafes and restaurants in Ikaria will greet you with a jug of homegrown red wine, but if that's not enough, a trip to one of the island's wineries might be in order. The main town of Agios Kirykos boasts an attractive harborside area, as well as an informative archeological museum that pulls back the curtaqin on Ikaria's 11,000 years of history. Of course, Akaria vacation rentals are also a great choice for anyone looking for a beach vacation, with both Nas and Seychelles beaches proving particularly popular.

    Sun, sea, and sand in scenic, seasonal Ikaria

    Since most Ikaria vacation rentals won't come pre-stocked with your prescription, you'll want to pack your shades—summers here (June–August) regularly reach temperatures in the low 80s, and you'll find a whopping 14 hours of daily sunshine in July. May and September can also be beautifully warm and sunny, and you'll find less crowded beaches, as well as lower rates, during these months. Winter (December–March), is still fairly mild, with daytime temperatures in the mid-50s. But grab an umbrella—winter rains are much more frequent and can sometimes get pretty heavy.

    Take a break from the ordinary on unique Ikaria

    Located in the Aegean Sea off the eastern coast of Cyprus, Ikaria's closest island neighbors are Samos to the east and Mykonos in the west. Ikaria is more rugged in comparison to its sleeker sisters, which have been tamed after years of tourism. But that doesn't mean you won't find perfect beaches while staying in Ikaria vacation rentals—this is Greece, after all—and you'll also find deep ravines, big boulders, and canyons and caves galore. This makes it great for Greek Island-hopping connoisseurs keen to see a different side of island life.
