Your Big Fat Greek Holiday starts here where we help you find the right spot!
The Greek Islands have long been the dream destination of holiday makers all over the world. The beaches are pristine and set against the deep blue Aegean Sea giving you the perfect backdrop for your overall tan.
A holiday in the Greek Islands leaves you feeling tranquil and relaxed and a little out of sorts as you try to remember why you don’t actually live there yourself. The landscape is varied and dotted with tiny, ancient villages where brightly coloured fishing boats liven up the harbours.
Holiday makers flock to the islands throughout the year and each with a different idea in mind of the perfect Greek holiday!
Each island seems to offer specific activities so we’ve tried to break them down for you to make choosing one easier! Of course, you could always decide to island hop and get the best of a few of them instead.
1.. Beach Lovers
If you love a relaxing beach break then Mykonos, Crete, Cofu, Skiathos and Paros will be great for you. The beaches are endless with good facilities.
Into dancing and nightlife in a wild way? Crete, Santorini, Rhodes, Mykonos and Ios are party islands offering a wide choice of clubs, bars, eateries and other exciting night time activities.
3. Intrepid Hikers
Hiking on Paros, Mykonos, Santorini and Corfu is a great way to spend an active holiday and you get to rest on the stunning white sandy beaches in between hikes! The islands are really beautiful but also have their rugged spots where you can expect a bit of climbing too.
4. Windsurfing Maniacs
If you’re into water sports and particularly wind surfing then Naxos, Paros and Mykonos offer the right conditions and plenty of azure waters to practice in!
We all love a bit of shopping on holiday but some Greek Islands just don’t have much in the way of fashion as they are totally focussed on nature and relaxation but if you’re a shopaholic and you know you’ll need a ‘fix’ head for Santorini or Rhodes!
Whatever island you choose on your holiday break this year the Greek Isles are a wonderful destination with many options for every type of dream vacation.
