The beauty of the Mediterranean...
Scattered across the eastern Mediterranean and blessed with a glorious sunny climate, the Greek Islands are among the world's favourite beach holiday destinations. From the deepest aquamarine seas to the iconic blue domes of Santorini, lush pine-clad hills to the greenest olive and traditional whitewashed towns to sun-bleached ivory beaches, choose a holiday to the Greek Islands and discover a world of vibrant colours and unforgettable beauty.
The capital, Athens, is among the world's foremost historical centres and its influence of western civilisation is unmatched. It is home to magnificent wonders from the classical world including the Acropolis, while its museums and galleries, dining, shopping and nightlife make it a top city break destination. Proving that beach holidays to Greece aren't just about the islands, the three-pronged peninsula of Halkidiki - which juts out into the azure Aegean - is home to many gorgeous sandy beaches, lush Mediterranean terrain and top beach resorts.
Greek Islands for families...
It is the islands that hold the greatest lure to holidaymakers though. There are countless Greek Islands scattered across the beautiful blue expanses of the Mediterranean: upwards of a thousand with many more islets and tiny outcrops, although only a couple of hundred at best are inhabited.
Crete is the largest and has long been one of the Mediterranean's leading retreats; which is hardly surprising considering within its 1,000km of idyllic coastline it contains everything from Knossos Palace to water parks and vibrant party towns to blissful beach villages. Equally popular is sundrenched Corfu - which is a great choice for family holidays in Greece - and is known as the 'Garden Island' for its lush Mediterranean landscapes, while it is also home to many stunning Blue Flag-awarded beaches with golden sands and sparkling blue Ionian waters.
Idyllic Kos - low-lying and lushly green - is blessed with gorgeous beaches, which shelve gently into shallow warm waters, perfect for families with young children. While Rhodes, with its glorious Mediterranean climate and pristine golden sands is a great all-rounder: packed with historic attractions, family-friendly resorts and activities, as well as lively party towns.
Greek Islands for nightlife...
If you want to enjoy a lively clubbing break in Greece, Zante attracts a young, buzzing crowd and is famously hedonistic, although this is balanced with sublime natural beauty including the stunning Blue Caves and the jaw-dropping Shipwreck Cove - easily one of the most beautiful sights in the Mediterranean. Cosmopolitan Mykonos enjoys a fashionable nightlife and offers excellent-value luxury accommodation.
Greek Islands for relaxation...
For a truly relaxing Mediterranean getaway, the rugged island of Lesbos is a great choice; the island is famous for its exquisite cuisine, while unspoilt Skiathos is well suited to those who want to avoid the crowds of the larger islands. The perfect destination for a romantic escape, Santorini is the epitome of Greece's Mediterranean beauty with its hill-clad whitewashed villages, iconic blue-domed churches and dark volcanic beaches.
Divinely beautiful Kefalonia - used as a filming location for Captain Corelli's Mandolin - is famous for its beach; in particular magnificent Myrtos Bay, which enjoys dazzling sun-bleached white sands that embrace warm indigo waters, framed between towering mountains and rolling pine clad hills.
