Greek Islands Holidays 2020

The Greek Islands are located off the mainland of Greece, spread across the Aegean and Ionian seas. There are 6,000 islands in total of which only 227 are inhabited. The islands enjoy a Mediterranean climate which consists of sunny, dry summers and mild, wet winters.

What type of holiday do the Greek islands offer?

Greece’s islands are not only excellent for beaches but best-known for historic sites and ancient ruins. Making it the perfect choice for travellers who love to add a dose of culture to their beach holidays. Plus, day trips to mainland Greece aren’t out of the question.

So, you’re bound to find just what you’re looking for.

The Greek islands are great for:

  • All inclusive holidays - from Santorini to Crete, Rhodes to Corfu and Kos to Mykonos, you can find some great package holidays where food and drinks are included. 
  • Family holidays - The Greek Islands are a popular destination for families as the kids love the huge amount of beaches on offer. The clear blue seas and golden sandy beaches are a giant playground for kids and adults alike!
  • Cheap holidays - Island hopping is a great way to experience different scenery and varying atmospheres on a budget. Some islands are quiet and great for beach relaxation, whereas others are full of young revellers looking to party the night away.

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:

  • Knossos
  • Imerovigli
  • Colossus of Rhodes
  • Delos
  • Navagio Beach
  • Tree of Hippocrates
Best Greek Island for beaches

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.
