5 things during Greek Island Hopping that you will always remember

Greek Islands ● 16 February 2018

Travelling between the islands is a dream trip, especially for those wanting to discover more than just one destination. Greek Island Hopping is not only a journey. It is a set of feelings that make this type of vacation unforgettable. Feelings that you can't experience if you choose to stay on one island relaxing. Of course, if you want to get rest, sleep and sunbathe the whole day, island hopping is not for you. Island hopping can be tiring, as tiring it is to test your limits and explore the world. But at the end of the day, no one remembers the tiredness. This is why you won't find it on that list, which describes you all the unforgettable things of Island Hopping in Greece that will give you not only hundreds of photos but also once in a lifetime experiences.


The moment the ferry reaches the harbour of another island, a whole new world is on your feet. Beaches, villages, tasteful dishes, historical sites, friendly people and local shops. New pictures you haven't imagined. The excitement at this moment is the expected outcome of the impatience to discover everything this island can offer to you. Adults rarely have this feeling as they have seen so many places and things. Feeling like a teenager is an amazing state of mind.


Sometimes, you will reach your destination in the middle of the night. If you travel to Mykonos or Paros, this is not a problem for the islands that never sleep. You can have a walk and discover the island's Chora by night. But if you have just arrived on a quiet island, such as Amorgos or Anafi, you have to wait until the next morning in order to feel the aura of this place and see it on the day light. From my personal experience, the curiosity was so strong that I couldn't sleep that night.

Explorer of the world

As you pack your stuff in the hotel, preparing yourself for the next island, you will have a feeling that you couldn't have if you just relaxed on a sunbed of a popular Greek island for a week. The feeling of exploring the world. And this remote, east-southern side of Europe is a part of the world that everyone should explore. In Greece, the European civilisation was born and flourished. In Greece, beauty meets hospitality. These two things make this small corner of the Mediterranean Sea definitely worth visiting.

Endless variety

Despite the fact that during the Greek Island Hopping you visit several islands, you may have the feeling that a life is not enough to explore all the Greek islands. This is true. Greek inhabited islands are more than 200, and they all have various characteristics. This endless variety should not disappoint you. You should be proud having explored many Greek islands. Even the Greek people haven't visited all the islands in Greece. Think of it as an invitation to come again and again. And as a promise that during island hopping in the Aegean or the Ionian Sea it is impossible to get bored.

Feeling of completeness

As you say goodbye to the last island, you won't only feel sad. You will have a feeling of completeness that makes these moments happy. You know you discovered the renowned Greek islands. And that is enough to see your photos and smile...
