With an annual ‘Shuck’ festival to celebrate the produce from the river, in particular, oysters, a holiday in Woodbridge is perfect for food lovers.

For those who want to experience a little more of Nisyros Island, then I’d recommend staying for a few nights. There are a few different villages around the edge you could then explore at your own pace, but even just taking some downtime on the black sand and rock beaches, or reading a book with a Greek coffee along the waterfront, is a holiday enough. If you want that simple Greek lifestyle but without the overwhelming crowds of say Santorini, and don’t mind trading in a few photo opportunities for lazy afternoons strolling between mountain villages, an escape to Nisyros is a good bet.
