Vacation in the Beautiful Greek islands

Greek Islands ● 08 September 2017
 

Certainly, you have heard about the beauty and the huge variety of the Greek islands. Greece has literally endless islands, and each of them has its own stunning landscape. If you want to lie on lunar beaches with a breathtaking view of a volcano, you should visit Santorini. If you want to party all the time, you should definitely spend your vacations in Mykonos, and if the goal of your trip is to explore unique beaches with your other half, Milos is an excellent destination for you. But one thing is for sure: there are some things you can do on the Greek islands irrespective of the choice you have made. It doesn't matter the island. Greek islands are amazing places to spend your vacations.

Greek islands are famous for their emerald sea waters that are the clearest in whole Europe. The experience of swimming in these waters will be unforgettable, and you will feel the refreshing aura that will truly relax you. Most beaches are sandy, and you can lie on them, under the warm sun, for hours.

Milos

However, Greece has not only astonishing beaches to offer. The truth is that Greece is a mountainous country with high altitude. The most amazing thing is that the mountains are near to the beaches, and you can thus hike and then swim or vice versa. If you are a fan of hiking, you should wake up early because after 12 o’clock, it is very warm in the summer, and explore a magnificent landscape from the top of the hill. If you are a fan of adventure, can you find a better combination?

Meteora

Furthermore, the Greek cuisine is an exquisite sample of the Mediterranean food, which is popular worldwide. On every island you visit, you can find local restaurants that serve a variety of dishes on a reasonable budget. The Greek cuisine is more affordable than the French or the Italian, and the greatest of all is that you can eat fresh fish in prices you could not even imagine. Creative seafood, traditional recipes and the legendary ingredients of the Greek cuisine can offer you an abundant culinary experience.

After dinner, you can enjoy the vivid nightlife of the Greek islands. Even on the quietest island, there is always a bar where you can drink raki, ouzo, wine or amazing cocktails. Greece is a country that never sleeps, so it is impossible to feel alone. Having fun is a must on the Greek islands, and summer is the best time of the year for that. Either you are in Paros or Kythnos, the night ends only when the sun rises.
