Top 5 things to do in the Greek Islands

Looking for family-friendly fun, romantic escapes or heart-pumping thrills? You’ll find it on holidays in the Greek Islands.

  • Santorini is one of the most popular luxury honeymoon destinations in the world. The Cycladic island features awe-inspiring Aegean views and a caldera that soars 1,100 feet above sea level. Romantic sunsets don’t come much better.
  • One of Europe’s longest canyons, Crete’s Samaria Gorge offers a 16-kilometre hike through soaring cliffs, narrow passageways and lush forests.
  • Celebrities and party-goers flock to glamorous Mykonos for summer holidays. Blue-domed churches, whitewashed houses and postcard-perfect windmills join stunning beaches and lively beach bars.
  • Navagio Beach decorates the coast of Zante and travel magazines across the globe. Otherwise known as Shipwreck Beach, towering limestone cliffs frame turquoise waters, white sand and the corroded shell of a smuggler’s ship.
  • From its UNESCO-listed Old Town to gorgeous Blue Flag beaches, Corfu is a favourite for family holidays. Visit Aqualand Corfu Water Park and Corfu Aquarium.

  • Hop on the ferry from Mykonos to visit the sacred island of Delos. The mythical birthplace of Apollo and Artemis features sprawling ruins and a museum filled with Greek sculptures.
  • According to Greek mythology, Zeus was raised on the island of Naxos. See the massive marble gateway of Portara and explore Venetian fortresses. The Archaeological Museum of Naxos hosts artefacts from the Neolithic to the early-Christian times.
  • The excavation area of Ancient Agora in Kos is a fascinating jumble of baths, temples, columns and mosaics.
  • You’ll see influences from the Minoans, Macedonians, Romans and Byzantines on the island of Paros. Stroll the cobblestone alleys of the Naoussa Old Town and visit Panagia Ekatontapiliani, a 4th-century church.
