Greece is home to thousands of islands, with destinations like Corfu, Santorini, and Mykonos receiving plenty of attention from holidaymakers.  

But one little-known island in Greece, Kalymnos, has been crowned the cheapest overall package holiday destination by Which?.

A week’s stay on the picturesque island will cost £847 per person on average, the consumer champion’s research revealed.  

The tiny island boasts secluded coves, sapphire seas, rugged mountains, and charming towns.  

To get there, travellers fly into the island’s busier neighbour Kos, before departing for Kalymnos by boat – a journey that takes just 40 minutes and is included in the price of the package.

The capital Pothia is the most competitively priced resort on the island – with the cheapest package found costing £794 per person. 

Taking a close second place behind are Greek islands Thassos, at £862 per person, and Lefkada, at £935 per person.

The Costa Brava took fourth place in Which?’s analysis – famous for its sweeping golden beaches and stunning craggy cliff tops. 

While the overall average price for this region comes in at £952, Which?’s analysis found prices between resort towns could vary significantly – for example, a stay in Malgrat de Mar, with its promenade of beachfront bars, Blue Flag beach and east access to Barcelona costs just £839 per person on average – £120 cheaper than its brasher and better-known neighbour Lloret de Mar.

The Venetian Riviera (Lido di Jesolo) was the cheapest spot in Italy, at £965 per person, while the swanky Amalfi coast was close behind at £977. 

Skopelos, Greece (made famous by Mamma Mia), the Costa de Luz, Spain, Campania, Italy, and Malta finished the top ten – with the latter being the only destination to top £1,000 per person for a week’s stay.

Researchers at Which? analysed more than 4,500 package holidays still available to book in the first week of August in 70 regions of 15 European countries to find the most affordable European resort getaway. 

Rory Boland, Editor of Which? Travel, said: “Travelling in the summer holidays is notoriously expensive, and demand is again high this year – but our latest price analysis shows that by being flexible on your destination, you can potentially save hundreds of pounds. 

“Many of the locations we found aren’t those you’d necessarily assume would be the cheapest – but from tiny, traditional Greek islands to the glitzy Amalfi coast, there are bargains to be found this summer.”
