Things to do in Greek Islands
Things to do in the Greek Islands
No two Greek Islands are the same. Each island has its own unique charm to offer visitors. You can relax among ancient ruins then head to Ios or Zante for a non-stop party, head to Kavos on Corfu for hedonistic nights, and for beautiful Blue Flag beaches and sunshine, you'll love Crete. Greek holidays can be completely different, depending on which island you visit.
Picking an island can be tricky. The Greek Islands are known for their party vibes, and if it isn't Ios or Zante, then Mykonos could tempt you. Other popular islands include Kefalonia with lovely beaches, and Skiathos, the quiet but glitzy charmer of the Greek Islands. These Greek gems are a great hotspot for a September holiday, where the weather is mild yet warm.
Some great spots include:
- Colossus of Rhodes
- Navagio Beach
- Tree of Hippocrates
Best Greek Island for beaches
If you're travelling to the Greek Islands, you're likely doing so for sun, sand and surf! Beaches are central to a Greek Islands holiday in 2020.
Santorini - If you're looking for upmarket beaches, the island of Santorini is the place to go. Santorini has numerous dark sandy shores, lined with palm-thatched parasols and sun loungers. Kamari Beach and Perissa Beach are two of the most popular choices, with beach bars and restaurants close by.
Corfu - Alternatively, Corfu is the best Greek Island destination if you're looking for family-friendly shorelines. The warm, shallow waters and soft sands on Agios Georgios and Agios Ioannis will please any group.
Zante - Zakynthos (known as Zante) offers water sports, scuba diving and boat trips, plus heaving nightlife. Sandy beaches such as Banana and Agios allow visitors to try water skiing and paragliding, while rocky bays like Porto Koukla and Keri Caves have their own unique features to offer.
Skiathos - One of the first Greek Islands to cater to tourists, its glitzy beachfronts are paired with protected areas of coves and beaches.
