People over 50's are demanding travellers. They know exactly what they want, they have the experience to make great selections and they search for something different that has the potential to impress them. Some of the senior travellers are fond of history and culture, while others look for top touristic facilities and relaxation. Either way, these Greek islands for the over 50's can offer you amazing moments during your Island Hopping in Greece. They offer high-quality accommodation in Greece and elegant atmosphere. Just read this article, choose which group of islands you want for your island hopping, and then visit the recommended islands to explore another side of Greece.

Cyclades are renowned for their wild nature, the untouched beaches and the crazy nightlife, but that doesn't mean you can't find some islands that are ideal for you. Tinos is an excellent option if you are fond of religion, as it has in its main town a famous orthodox church dedicated to Virgin Mary, which is considered to be miraculous. Tinos has also wonderful traditional villages, where you can stroll around and eat delicious food. Syros, which is located in a very short distance to Tinos (less than 1 hour by ferry), is a very good option for senior travellers too. It has an impressive, well-preserved neoclassical harbour with elegant shops, cosmopolitan restaurants and a romantic atmosphere ideal to relax and get rest. After Syros, you can go to neighbouring Naxos. Beautiful organised beaches, Greek restaurants with tasteful and affordable local cuisine, a lovely Chora and top ancient sites are its strongest assets.


The island complex of Dodecanese has two amazing islands that combine cosmopolitanism and top touristic facilities, all-inclusive hotels as well as fully organised beaches with historical monuments and the opportunity to travel back to ancient and medieval Greece. Rhodes and Kos are located in a very close distance to each other, and you can visit them both in order to have a great time. Patmos is also a perfect choice for travellers over the 50's. The medieval town, the monastery of Saint John, where he wrote the Apocalypse, together with the elegant character of the island won't leave you untouched.


The Ionian Islands have the advantages that they are developed and characterised by long-year experience in the tourism sector. Corfu is a wonderful island with exotic beaches and the best-preserved town in Greece with its Italian architecture and the pebbled narrow streets impressing everyone. Lefkada should be also a stop during your Greek Island Hopping thanks to its fascinating beaches. Another asset of Lefkada is that it is connected with mainland Greece via a bridge, so your journey can be convenient by car.


Sporades is the ultimate island complex for senior travellers. Verdant nature, all the amenities you need, sandy-easily accessible- beaches and a relaxing atmosphere constitute the perfect scenery for your holidays in Greece. Skopelos has a unique main town, which is built amphitheatrically with colourful neoclassical houses and has numerous local shops and paved streets for your evening walk. Skyros has an authentic touch, which will surprise you. It is better to combine both islands in order to have a general impression of Sporades and discover several gorgeous beaches, where the film "Mamma Mia" was shot.
