Mykonos and Santorini are the two crown jewels of Greek tourism. But both of these top destinations are going through a major crisis. 

Unchecked building activity, cruise ships without any oversight and planning, inadequate local administrations of the past, corruption and traffic threaten their reputation and gnaw at their future.
