2018 is the year of Greek Island Hopping. Learn here why!

Greek Islands ● 14 March 2018
 

2018 is an excellent year for Greek Island Hopping. Actually, 2018 is the year of island hopping in Greece. Are you still thinking about it? Don't wait! Learn here why it is a great idea to pack your suitcase, come to Greece and enjoy fascinating vacation in various islands, each of them having something totally different to offer to you. March is the best time to organise your summer holidays. It is not too early, but the travels agents reward the motivated and proactive travellers with super ferry and accommodation deals.


Island Hopping in Greece gives you the opportunity to visit during your vacation more islands. Greek islands are located very close to each other, and so this option is easily, conveniently and affordably achievable. Ferry routes last less than one hour between the islands, and each island can be really different that the previous one. For example, if you visit Mykonos, you will have a party experience on an island with vivid nightlife, gorgeous beaches and a magnificent Chora. Afterwards, you can go to Santorini, which is a volcanic island with breathtaking view, romantic sunsets and elegant hotels at the edge of the cliff. Next stop can be Crete, which is a large island, renowned for its delicious cuisine, great hospitality, exotic beaches and significant archaeological sites.

All of these routes can be done with unbeatable ferry passes, which give you the opportunity to have flexibility in your journey, travel whenever you want and pay less than if you have bought separated ferry tickets. For example, Greek Island Pass (book online the ferry pass) is valid for up to 9 routes from Athens to 7 islands (Paros, Mykonos, Naxos, Amorgos, Ios, Santorini, Crete) in any combination is the most suitable for you. And all of these at the price of only one ticket!

Furthermore, thanks to the increase of tourism, new, unspoiled destinations have become popular, and you can find places and islands for every taste, where you can relax and spend off-the-beaten-path vacations. Thus, you can combine touristic islands with less discovered places. For example, after visiting Mykonos and Santorini, you can go to romantic and wild Folegandros, to Koufonisi, the Caribbean of Greece, or Anafi, the ultimate island for free-campers.

On most islands of Greece, you can find high-quality, yet cheap hostels to spend the night, if you don't want to pay for a room in a hotel. The good news is that on the islands, where you can't find a hostel, namely the off-the-beaten-track islands away from mass tourism, there are cozy rooms to let. There, you have your own room with private shower, but you pay much less than a hotel because rooms to let don't have a reception and some other touristic facilities, such as a pool or a restaurant.
