Being with your children during your vacations is something unique, difficult and wonderful at the same time. There are many tips when travelling with your kids, but it is also important to choose a destination, which is family-friendly. In Greece, thanks to the great variety of islands for every taste, there are many family-friendly places, where you can have relaxing and calm holiday.

1. Rhodes

Rhodes is an astonishing island with wonderful beaches, traditional towns, like Lindos and the Medieval Rhodes Town, as well as big modern hotels, with all-inclusive packages, where everything is on your doorstep. Water-sports facilities, restaurants, cafés, wellness centres and everything you need just to switch off and relax.


2. Crete

Crete offers amazing beaches, significant archaeological monuments and a wide range of family-friendly hotels. Organised beaches, traditional towns, like Chania and Rethymnon, for a stroll with your children and great touristic facilities everywhere will make your vacations with your kids easy and unforgettable. Your children will also love Cretaquarium, the home of 2,000 sea animals and 200 different Mediterranean species.


3. Zakynthos

Zakynthos is the best place in the Ionian Islands for family holidays. Long sandy beaches with water-sports facilities, many things to do, like diving in the Blue Caves, and of course the protected sea turtle caretta-caretta, which is everywhere in Zakynthos. If you take an excursion boat in Laganas Zakynthos Bay, you will certainly see a sea turtle swimming in the crystal waters, an impressing experience for the kids.


4. Lefkada

Lefkada is a top water-sports destination in Greece. Kitesurf, windsurf and diving are only some of the activities you can do with your children. Lefkada Town has also many cafés and bars that your teens will love. Although Lefkada is an island, you can go there by car because it is connected to mainland Greece with a bridge. This is important if you travel with your kids as it is a cheaper option than the ferry and it is also more convenient by carrying your stuff.


5. Naxos

Naxos is one of the most family-friendly islands in Cyclades. It offers its visitor many interesting things to do, like archaeological sites and beautiful villages, while it has also family-friendly beaches, with soft sand, shallow waters, all touristic facilities and water-sports.


6. Kos

Kos has many all-inclusive hotels and top things to do and see, like ancient monuments and vivid nightlife, which is perfect if you have teens in your family. All beaches of Kos are sandy and organised, so you can relax without having to worry about anything.


7. Samos

Samos is an ideal island for families thanks to its long, sandy, organised beaches with crystal waters as well as the low prices in accommodation and food. In the two main towns of Samos, Vathi and Pithagoreion, you will meet many families with their children walking around and have fun.


8. Chios

Chios has unique beauty and medieval atmosphere. You and your family will be impressed by the beautiful, well-preserved villages of the island, and your kids will love the traditional sweets, the orchards and the mastic trees, which are everywhere on the island.
