Getaways on Secluded Greek Islands

Some of the best destinations in the world are in the Greek Islands, where the combination of breath taking scenery, beautiful beaches and fascinating history provide unforgettable holidays. Resorts in Corfu and Crete are popular because they offer a mix of all inclusive services that appeals to visitors looking for relaxed yet scenic getaways.

Corfu is in the Ionian Sea and has a rich history owing in part to its location on the north western frontier of Greece, as well as in Greek mythology, as its Greek name, “Kerkyra”, is related to Poseidon, god of the sea, and Asopos, which is a Greek river. It has recently become a popular tourist location, particularly in the south of the island, where beaches and nightclubs are surplus in places like Kavos. Acharavi in the north offers a lazy, more relaxed outlook on life for those who prefer quiet evenings enjoying local cuisine in the tavernas.

Crete is the largest island in Greece in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, in the southern part of the Aegean Sea. It’s also a centre of the country’s cultural heritage, and yet with unique local traits, having once been the home of the ancient Minoan civilisation. Malia in the north is a big tourist attraction, where sea, sand and cocktails are on the menu every day, while Aghios Nikolaos is similar but slightly lower key, and Rethymnon is great for family holidays.
