5 things to do on the Greek islands in the fall

Greek Islands ● 28 August 2017
 

You may think that summer is over, but in Greece, things are a little bit different. Summer is not over until November. The warm, sunny weather is here during autumn, and swimming as well as sunbathing until October is a usual phenomenon on the Greek islands. If you are wondering, why you should visit Greece in the fall, read this article about the activities you can do in Greece in autumn. Plus, be prepared to enjoy amazing accommodation and ferry deals because prices in Greece in the fall are significantly lower than in the summer. Can you imagine something better than enjoying the sun and the sea, while in your country, rainy days have appeared since August?

Swim

The waters of the sea on the Greek islands as well as in mainland seaside Greece are crystal clear, with an amazing turquoise colour. The temperature of these waters in high until October, and the sea, especially in the Saronic Islands, is calm. The benefits of swimming in the sea all year long are known, and you can do here an activity, which will prolong your summer.

Hike

Although Greece is a country with long coastline, it has also many beautiful mountains with stunning natural beauty. Even on the Greek islands, you can find interesting cliffs to hike. In these routes, you will have a magnificent view of the sea, discover forgotten villages away from the mass tourism and take photos of chapels in the middle of nowhere. In the fall, hiking and generally outdoor activities are much more convenient than in the summer, when the weather is too hot to do anything else than just lying on the beach.

Water sports

Water ski, kite and wind surf, water games and canoeing are ideal opportunities to have fun and play in the sea, if you don't want to swim. Sailing is also a very good option to exercise and explore inaccessible beaches and islands as well having an amazing island-hopping experience. In Greece, there are many marinas where you can rent a sailing boat and start your incredible journey, and the prices of renting a boat are very low in the fall.

Walk around

Most Greek islands have a very beautiful Chora with elegant shops, charming squares and narrow pebbled streets to stroll around. In the fall, you can enjoy these wonderful towns and the urban tourism, just relaxing without any schedule.

Visit historical sites

Greece is famous for its long and rich history, and every Greek island has an important historical site or archaeological museum. The entrance fees in these sites are lower in the off-season than in the high season, and exploring an outdoor archaeological place, like Delos or Akrotiri Minoan Site (Santorini), is easier in autumn with the mild temperature and without facing the danger of a heat- or sunstroke.
