Whether you fancy partying in Kos, sightseeing in Athens or sunbathing in Rhodes, Greece is a vast destination with a sprawling cluster of islands that offers a tantalising range of different holiday experiences.
If you’re looking for the type of holiday where you can retreat to a romantic haven and enjoy some peace and quiet for a week or two, there are plenty of resorts dotted around the islands which would be right up your street. On the island of Kefalonia – famous for the film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin – you’ll find numerous towns and whitewashed villages by the coast that would make the perfect stay, or head inland for a seriously tranquil and authentic experience.
Families will find plenty of things to see and do in Crete – the largest of the Greek islands – and similarly holidays in Corfu have those all-important beaches in abundance, complete with fun-filled activities and numerous family-friendly hotels which are simply buzzing with kids’ clubs and children’s facilities.
If you’re here to party, you’re certainly in the right place. Choose from the island of Kos and the non-stop town of Kardamena, the ever-popular town of Faliraki in Rhodes or the neon-lit nightspot of Malia in Crete. Any one of these buzzing scenes will easily provide your clubbing fix with their booming bars and all-night venues, then it’s off to the beach for the day to take it easy and refuel yourself under the hot Grecian sun.
For something a little less frenetic, the island of Skopelos is a rare treat. This Summer refuge is quiet and authentic. You won’t find hoards of sunbathers here, instead it’s a wonderful slice of Greek life that’s the perfect place to recharge your batteries.
Greece is packed with countless different holiday experiences – the question is which one will you choose?
