The Greek Islands

The Greek islands are mostly on the east of mainland Greece in the Aegean sea with Turkey to the west. Although some of the more popular islands are in the Ionian sea, just west of the mainland and east of Italy.

They range from massively popular, the likes of Santorini, Corfu, Kefalonia, Zakynthos, Kos and Rhodes to much quieter and less popular like Poros, Halki, Naxos, Serifos and many, many more.

Greek island holidays are so in demand because in the summer months good weather is all but guaranteed, they have fantastic beaches, impressive historical sites and the Greek people are so welcoming.

There’s a range of hotels to suit all budgets and the various towns and villages cater to a wide range of travellers from 18-30 drinkers to those who just want to relax by the sea all day. Whatever you are looking for in your next holiday, there’s almost certainly a Greek island that’s perfect for you.
