Sofia Mavromatis

Born and raised on the sun-drenched island of Crete, Sofia Mavromatis is a seasoned traveler and writer with a deep-rooted love for Greece's vibrant culture, stunning landscapes, and rich history. She has spent the last decade exploring the hidden gems of the Greek islands and is passionate about sharing these experiences with fellow travel enthusiasts worldwide.

Sofia is the co-founder of Greek Island, a comprehensive travel blog that offers insightful guides and recommendations for navigating the Greek islands. A Cretan native with a background in tourism management, Sofia has firsthand knowledge of what makes each island unique, from the tranquil beauty of Spetses to the buzzing nightlife of Mykonos.

But Sofia’s love for the Greek Islands extends beyond the typical tourist experiences. She is passionate about uncovering the islands' lesser-known treasures – be it a remote beach, a family-owned taverna serving traditional moussaka, or a local festival alive with music and dance.

Sofia's writing style is informative, engaging, and fueled by personal anecdotes, making every guide and review she writes a lively account of her travels. She hopes to inspire readers to step off the beaten path, immerse themselves in local cultures, and experience the authentic Greek island life.

When she's not backpacking across the islands or writing for Greek Island, Sofia can be found sipping a frappé at a seaside café in Heraklion, practicing traditional Greek dances, or sailing along the azure waters of the Aegean Sea.

For Sofia, every corner of Greece holds a story, and she is eager to help you write your own.
