There’s not a lot that’s more glamorous than a trip to the Greek islands. After all, this is where the celebrities come to get away from it all, usually aboard a luxury yacht. But a trip here is not just for the rich and famous. In fact, the Greek isles are accessible to everyone, you just have to get there. Here are a few of Greece’s best islands.
This might be the most popular of the Greek islands for tourists. The views are spectacular and the white homes on the islands make for very charming scenery. The northern end of the island is very popular for sunset views, and you can always find people there taking photos. The island has several beaches but one of the best is Caldera Beach. Here you can get a glimpse of the ancient volcano.
This is where the party people go, and for good reason. Many people compare Mykonos to Ibiza. While the island can be relatively quiet much of the year, during July and August things really ramp up. Of course, most of the hardcore partying starts in the evening. During the daytime it’s possible to have some beaches to yourself, as all the revelers are sleeping off the night before. There are great seafood restaurants lining the beaches and great views all around.
Many people love Crete for one reason and one reason only; the food. Crete is famous for its cheese, wine and olive oil production, and most visitors say it’s impossible to get a bad meal here. There are small restaurants and tavernas everywhere, and it’s very easy to spot the places that the locals like to frequent. That means it must be good, right? There are amazing views and ancient ruins to see as well, but you might be too full to do anything but lie on the beach and wait for the next mealtime.
Of course, there are many more islands to choose from. You should choose the Greek island vacation that’s right for you, then purchase your tickets and get going!
