The ultimate check list for your island hopping in Greece

Greek islands ● 16 February 2018
 

Greek islands are waiting for you this summer. And because you know that they are numerous, beautiful and with different characteristics, you have chosen the experience of Greek Island Hopping. Congratulations! You will live summer vacation full of sea, gorgeous beaches, delicious food and hundreds of pictures amazing you with their beauty. While organising your island hopping in Greece, check this list to be sure you have arranged everything and taken with you all the necessary things.

Ferry tickets

Ferry tickets are the first thing you should take care of in the Island Hopping in Greece. You need to organise all routes and have a schedule for your transportation from one island to another. Plus, there is always the possibility of overbooking, so be sure to book your ferry tickets early. If you want to avoid the expensive prices and the strict schedule, you should consider the option of Greek Island Pass (learn more), a super cool ferry pass, which gives you the opportunity to visit up to 7 islands, make several routes between the islands and have the flexibility you want during your holidays. And all of these paying only for the price of one ticket!


Where to stay

Accommodation is also something you should definitely book in advance. Don't make the mistake and come to the Greek islands in July or August without having booked a hotel or hostel on every island you visit. Most islands are fully booked, so be sure to make your reservation early. It needs a good planning, but you can relax and avoid worrying about a place to spend the night. When arriving on the island, the last thing you want is to spend time to look for a hotel.

Necessary things

Don't make the mistake to think that only your swimsuit and your sunglasses are necessary. Remember to be very careful with the sun, which in Greece during summer can be dangerous. Totally necessary things are your sunscreen protection and the hat. An umbrella will also be useful in case you visit untouched islands where most beaches are unorganised.

Rent a car

In small islands, like Koufonisia, you can walk from one beach to the other or to Chora. For larger islands, there is public transportation, which however is not very convenient. Buses are often overcrowded and the schedule is rare. A wonderful option is to take the caique to go to the beach and feel the sea breeze on your face watching the sea gulls following you. But if you want to explore the island and have flexibility, you should consider the solution of renting a car, especially in large islands. This gives you the freedom to discover many places, where you can't go by bus and make an unforgettable road trip.
