Lots of people know about the larger islands of Europe: Great Britain, Ireland, Sicily and many more but there are many smaller (but no less breathtaking) islands that we often forget or bypass on our quest to visit while travelling around Europe. Some of the islands are “off the beaten track” so to speak, while others are more mainstream but what they do have in common is how beautiful they are and how amazing they are to visit!

This might be the geographer in me, but I do have to point out that some of the destinations are a group/archipelago of Islands but I have included these as one destination to make things more concise rather than have a ridiculously long list of small islands across Europe… 🙂
