Mykonos

Sometimes, you may think that it is impossible that a place can combine everything. Natural beauty, astonishing beaches, elegant shops, wonderful villages, wild nightlife, cosmopolitan atmosphere. In Mykonos, this dream can become true and make you have unforgettable vacations. Mykonos is the place to see and to be seen. Celebrities from all over the world visit the island, and that is not a coincidence. Plus, near Mykonos, there are many other beautiful Cycladic islands to continue with island hopping.



Santorini

Santorini is one of the most romantic and impressive seaside destinations worldwide. There is nothing more gorgeous than watching the sunset in Oia, Fira or Imerovigli, when the sun paints the sea pink and the beauty can't be described by words in these whitewashed villages at the edge of the cliff. In addition to the volcano, Santorini has a long and rich history due to its Neolithic civilisation, creative Greek cuisine, vivid nightlife and extraordinary beaches.



Crete

Crete is an astonishing island that can offer you everything you are searching for. Traditional towns and villages, like Chania, Rethymnon, Heraklion and Ierapetra, delicious cuisine and stunning beaches are only some of the attractions of Crete. Historical sites, crazy nightlife, verdant nature and top touristic facilities are also some things Crete can offer to you and make your vacation worthwhile.



Corfu

The words are not enough to describe the beauty of Corfu Town, an Italian style jewel that has been declared UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its well-preserved architecture, the cobblestone alleys and the atmosphere that travels you back in time. Corfu has also great Ionian cuisine and gorgeous beaches with turquoise waters and lush greenery.



Zakynthos

Zakynthos is a non-stop party destination, away from families, children and couples. In Laganas, you will be impressed by the stages and clubs with various kinds of music. But Zakynthos is not an island to party. It has also wonderful beaches, lush greenery and Italian-style architecture. Have a walk at the central square of the city and the paved streets around it, and of course don't forget to swim in the famous Shipwreck Beach!



Rhodes

Rhodes is a beautiful cosmopolitan island, which can offer the traveller astonishing beaches, bars and clubs for endless fun, cultural opportunities, great touristic amenities as well as traditional towns and villages. The Medieval Town of Rhodes is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe. Furthermore, what you probably did not know is that Rhodes offers you not only the above advantages but also a few small islands in a short distance, such as Symi, Tilos, Chalki and Kastellorizo to discover more Greek islands.
