Years ago, it was thought that a vacation in Greece was only for those people who were on their honeymoon. But this incredible Mediterranean country has so much to offer every type of traveler. So, if you are looking for history, culture, natural beauty, the great outdoors, or an island setting, Greece has everything you need. The best part is you can combine all those things together for a once in a lifetime vacation if you want to experience it all.
There are dozens of beaches on all the Greek Islands, but the most spectacular ones can be found on Kefalonia. This is the largest island of all the Ionian Islands. During your vacation in Greece, you can choose from 36 beaches on Kefalonia. Each beach offers glorious views of the sparkling turquoise water with cliffs looming above.
The most popular beach on this Greek Island is Myrtos Beach. It is a mile and a half long, which is perfect if you want to take a walk along the shoreline. The best beach for swimming is Petani Beach, thanks to the extremely clear water. Platia Ammos offers a secluded cove, while Megas Lakos has red sand that shines under the sun for Instagram worthy photos.
The best family adventures during your vacation in Greece can be found on the island of Rhodes. There are plenty of family-friendly resorts on this Greek Island. At least one day must be spent at the largest water park in Europe. The Faliraki Water Park has multiple water slides, lazy river, and a wave pool. More fun in the sun and the sand can be had over at Faliraki Beach.
And for those days when you don’t want to be in the water, I recommend venturing over to the Valley of Butterflies or the Rhodes Aquarium.
Many travelers think that the only history to be found in Greece is located in Athens. However, Thessaloniki is another large city that is filled with an abundance of history. I recommend beginning by climbing the White Tower to see the city from a different vantage point.
From there, you can wander around the streets until you reach the Galerius Arch, ancient churches, and the city’s castle. Just don’t forget to spend a little time at the Roman Market to soak in the history of the location.
Lots of thrilling adventures can be found when you head on your vacation in Greece. Particularly on the island of Samothraki. This island may only be 11 miles long, but it really packs a punch when it comes to fun. To the north, you can hike trails while discovering waterfalls and canyons. I highly recommend taking a day trip to the Kremastos Waterfall. A guide is needed for this adventure, thanks to the tough terrain. Another stunning waterfall to add to your list is the Paradeisos Waterfall.
If you aren’t feeling adventurous one day, or you need a little time to recover, the Therma sulfur springs will be waiting for you.
Traditions and cultural events can be found all over the Greek Islands. But the island of Chios is the best choice when you want a vacation filled with culture. Multiple museums are scattered around the island. I also recommend wandering around under the mastic trees to discover some of the Byzantine churches and medieval castles.
Keep those mastic trees in your thoughts throughout the day too, because you can try some Mastiha liquor in an end of the day drink. The liquor is made from the resin produced on the trees you walk under while on this island.
Any traveler searching for a luxurious vacation in Greece will want to choose to visit the Halkidiki Peninsula. This pseudo-island is attached to the mainland yet feels like it is an island far in the Aegean Sea. Luxury hotels and resorts line the shoreline. Many of those accommodations offer an on-site spa, which is perfect for those days when you need a little pampering.
Along the main road, you will discover boutiques, entertainment venues, and restaurants that serve delicious cuisine. The beach bars and clubs are the perfect destinations for day and night. Although, you may find that sleep is hard to get when you are out having fun twenty-four seven.
These are the experiences every type of traveler will love while on a vacation in Greece. I know you can find a destination that checks off all the boxes on your dream vacation list.
