On Greece‘s mainland you’ll find sweeping coastlines and delightful villages full of character and drenched in history. With its three peninsulas and miles of beautiful beaches, Halkidiki has an island feel and is home to stylish resorts with impressive facilities that are great for all the family. A little further off the beaten track, Messinia in the scenic south-west Peloponnese hosts crumbling castles, unspoilt coves and valleys dotted with lakes and waterfalls.
Offshore, the Greek Islands brim with beauty. From Mykonos’ glamorous hotels to the dramatic views found on picture-perfect Santorini; the architectural delights of medieval Rhodes to the creamy white beaches and legendary ruins of Crete, these enchanting islands all offer something special. If you can’t sit still there are watersports and fascinating sites to explore – but if relaxing on soft sands, sipping cocktails and watching mesmerising sunsets are your idea of a perfect day, then that’s just fine here, too.
Greece has long been a favourite holiday destination, and with very good reason. Although boasting over 400 Blue Flag beaches, Greece offers far more than sun, sea and sand. No other country can match Greece’s combination of world-shaping history, archaeological sites, unique culture and stunning scenery. A wide range of activities, from active water-sports and sailing to walking and painting, is available to help you make the most of your stay – take a look at some of our Greece Holidays Ideas.
