With more than 6,000 islands total, with 227 inhabited, in Greece, the selection is overwhelming. Which one is perfect for your next vacation?
Just off the western coast of North Africa is a chain of islands that, although they belong to Spain, feel worlds away from the mainland. Majestic volcanoes, serene beaches and variety from island to island make the Canary Islands a worthy vacation destination. When opting to visit the island of Tenerife and when not hiking along the rugged coastline or climbing to Spain’s highest point, including the mainland, spend a day in the port city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, one of the biggest towns on the island, and you can do so on a budget.
The Greek tradition of health and wellness runs deep; travelers can find a multitude of therapies to meet their wellbeing needs, from healing spas, herbal therapies, hypnotherapy, massages and more. In Greece, the approach to wellness focuses on the “whole” and the ways in which the mind, body and soul interact. A state of balance is achieved through a good relationship between the emotional and natural state, which can be found throughout Greece at its more than 800 medicinal spas.
