Terrific value for money

No matter what type of activity appeals to you, Greece certainly offers plenty of choice. Practice your swing on a variety of golf courses, scuba dive beneath the waves, stroll through ancient ruins, or simply relax on golden beaches. Fine dining is another attraction and regional cuisines across the country are world-class.

Best destinations for Greek beach holidays

Find your magic on the mainland
A big attraction of Greece is its impressive coastline, which is as long as it is diverse. While some of the beaches are pebbly others are covered with golden sand and some are even clothing-optional for those of you brave enough. Choose your favourite Greek beach experience depending on the scene you prefer – whether it’s lively, buzzing resorts packed with evening entertainment or a quiet meal and a drink in a Greek taverna.

  • In the north:
    Some of the most popular mainland resorts are in central Macedonia in the north of Greece, where the remains of Neolithic settlements and ancient ruins are special attractions. Small villages surrounded by thick forests and waterfalls make for scenic views (Halkidiki is a recommended destination of choice in this region).
  • In the south:
    The Peloponnese is a large peninsula in the south, which also has a variety of excellent beaches intercepted by rural villages. Many visitors come here to view the archaeological sites, which include the ancient cities of Corinth, Sparta and Messene, the site of the Ancient Olympic Games (Olympia) and the fortress town of Mycenae.

Island hopping in the Med
Some of the most popular beaches are on the outlying islands where tourists flock every high season to enjoy the warm Mediterranean sun. Some well-known beaches are Paradise Beach on Mykonos where the party atmosphere rarely dies down, Vai Beach on Crete (backed by Europe's largest natural palm grove) and Sidari Beach in the north of Corfu.

Are you brave enough to bare all?
While there are many nudist beaches on the islands (Paradise and Super Paradise are perhaps the most famous) there aren’t as many bare-all beaches on the mainland. The islands are conservative in many ways – perhaps more so than in towns and cities on the mainland – but they have a cheerful atmosphere that’s favourably disposed towards shedding a few clothes!
