By now you’re surely sick and tired of all the cold, but sunny days are sure to come. And when they do, you’d better have a good vacation plan so you don’t waste any sunshine.

Did we say sunshine? Funny how the Greek islands were our first association with that, right? We bet you’re starting to visualize them yourself, with their sandy beaches, clear blue water, white little houses so let’s keep the mental image alive…

We’re basically talking about 6000 islands and islets spread around the Aegean and Ionian seas. Not all of them are inhabited, but about 227 of them are and they’re all ready to welcome you. Of course, the most hospitable for tourists are: Santorini, Crete, Corfu, Rhodes, Mykonos, Skiathos, Ios and Zakynthos.

Santorini is probably the most beautiful and a genuine paradise for sun lovers, shoppers and photographs. Crete is the largest island and its size covers both beaches and mountains. Corfu is a feast for the eyes with its olive groves and orange gardens and it’s simply Heaven if you enjoy long walks and good food. Rhodes has a lot of Turkish influences and it’s basically a medieval jewel. Mykonos is a surfer’s paradise and it’s also a very interesting blend of history and modern glamour. Skiathos is famous for its walking routes and if you’re truly looking for relaxation, the natural beauties of this island will do the trick. Ios (which means flower) is a diver’s paradise thanks to its blue-green clear waters and it’s also a great place to try exotic foods. Zante can be your own personal haven thanks to its multitude of secluded beaches and it’s also a wonderful place for diving and climbing.

And something that applies to all of the Greek Islands – their clubbing scenes are constantly evolving and from year to year you’ll get more and more options for your crazy summer nights. For your daytime entertainment there’s always sun bathing and swimming, but as you’ve already read above, you can also dive, snorkel, sail, climb, water ski, windsurf. And let’s not forget about the impressive number of archaeological remains of the Ancient Greek culture.

So what are you waiting for? Choose an island, book a flight and check out our App to see who else is going. And don’t worry about money – there are more than 250 camping sites so you’ll be saving a lot on accommodation.
