Quick Guide to Greek Islands
Steeped in ancient history as well as plenty of sunshine, Greece is a glorious summer getaway destination. The 1,400 islands dotted across its beautiful blue waters offer dazzling white beaches that range from lively to blissfully serene. With picturesque blue and white villages and ancient ruins set against spectacular sunsets, you'll feel like you're walking into a postcard.
Discover the lush green western islands like Kefalonia where Captain Corelli's Mandolin was filmed. Or let Santorini take your breath away with its dramatic cliffs and stunning volcanic landscape. The Cycladic islands attract a cosmopolitan crowd. If you want to splash out, head to Mykonos or try nearby Paros or Naxos for a cheaper alternative. Sample the delicious local dishes and then work off the calories with a range of watersports.
Try one of the larger islands like Corfu, Rhodes or Crete for great deals on all inclusive holidays. Or head off the beaten track for a more traditional experience where you could see prices drop by nearly a third. Camping resorts can also be a fun way to keep costs down. Each island has its own unique personality and many are close enough to hop on a ferry for a day trip. Whether you're after family fun, non-stop parties or a romantic setting to relax in, you'll be sure to find cheap holidays to the Greek islands.
