If there’s one holiday destination that promises to please time after time, it’s Greece. This ancient wonder is full of glittering seas, soft golden sands and craggy mountain tops, peppered with historic ruins and woven with tales of gods, heroes and mythical beasts. Whether you want to take a trip through time and marvel at the incredible architecture and forgotten ruins of years gone by, or enjoy the more modern take on Greece and explore its beachside resorts, this cracking destination is full of variety and offers something for everyone.
Take Crete holidays for instance. A large island with stacks of different resorts to suit every taste, Crete is a real gem when it comes to summer holidays. It’s got virtually everything you could wish for – gorgeous sandy beaches, lively towns with buzzing nightlife, romantic retreats in the middle of nowhere, and more family-friendly hotels than you could ever imagine.
Then there’s Corfu, the first choice for those who like their rooms with a view. Holidays in Corfu – also known as the Emerald Isle – are a haven of turquoise seas, long stretches of golden sand and mountainous backdrops which are perfect for days out walking, cycling and sightseeing.
Families are well catered for on Greek island holidays too, thanks to the developed resorts around the coast which offer everything from water parks and hotel-run kids’ clubs to secluded bays – perfect for little feet that like to paddle.
Or if you’re looking for something a little livelier, there are more than enough bustling destinations here with your name on it. Malia in Crete, Kavos in Corfu, Kardemena in Kos and Laganas in Zante – these are some of the most popular nightspots that the Greek islands have to offer, and if you’re after a week or two of non-stop partying, any one of these bustling resorts should certainly do the trick.
