Tips / Destination

Greek Islands are great vacation destinations for both fun and relaxation. Whatever you’re looking for, know what is in store to make the most out of your stay.

If you haven’t secured a room before your trip, don’t worry. When you arrive at the port (if traveling by ferry) you will be bombarded with locals offering rooms to let, as well as taxis, buses and car rentals to take you wherever you need to go.

The beaches are the main attractions on most islands. Big, popular beaches are well equipped with bars, cafés and water sports, but if you’re looking for those amazing Instagram-worthy locations, you’re going have to put a little effort into it. Some of the best beaches on the islands are off the beaten path so be prepared to explore.

Keep in mind clothing is a somewhat tangible thing on some island beaches. Topless beaches are common and some beaches are even fully nude.

Depending on time of year the climate on the islands is often dry and windy. Despite the wind, sunburns can happen quickly so be prepared with sunscreen, hat and sunglasses to protect yourself from the elements. When the sun goes down the temperatures can drop significantly so remember to bring warm clothes for the evenings.

When the sun gets hottest in the afternoon, do like the locals do and head indoors for a nap to escape the heat. When the sun goes down, dress up and hit the clubs for some of that infamous island nightlife. The party usually goes until dawn so you will be grateful you took that nap.

If you want non-stop excitement, head to an island like Mykonos where the beach clubs keep the party going day and night.
