Where to Go On Your Family Holiday In Greece

Family Holiday in GreeceThink of a family holiday in Greece and a host of appealing images spring to mind. Idyllic beaches and crystal-clear seas. It is great for families, as the Greeks genuinely love children, who in turn enjoy the informal atmosphere.

Sparkling blue seas, soft white beaches and wonderful small towns and villages make this the perfect family beach vacation in Greece destination.

Cephalonia has great beaches, attractive villages and towns. Luckily, it is big and mountainous enough to absorb the influx of holidaymakers. This is the perfect destination for your family holiday in Greece during June or September.

Other newly emerging destinations are the islands of Ikaria and Patmos in the eastern Aegean. Both are probably a little too quiet for all, though there are some really good beaches on the north coast of Ikaria.

On a family holiday in Greece with teenage children? Try the northeast coast of Corfu. You get the relative quietness while your teenagers can enjoy the night life. For a family beach vacation in Greece with small children Paxos, south of Corfu, is an excellent choice. It is a small island of olive groves and pinewoods with a handful of little ports and villages to enjoy and explore.

You can also contemplate a family beach vacation in Greece by planning a trip to Mykonos. The only problem is that there are too many beaches which makes choosing the best difficult. On the south side of the island alone are Ornos and Psarou beaches preferred by families, Agrari for idyllic relaxation and Psarou is great for windsurfing, water-skiing and diving.

In Santorini most beaches are covered in black, ash-like sand except for the most famous one, which is red. The main town, Fira, is found at the peak of the island and provides breathtaking views across the land and sheer cliffs that plunge into the azure water.

Family Holiday In Greece

From the ancient ruins at Akrotiri to Orthodox, Catholic and Byzantine churches, to fish-sellers on the streets of Fira, Santorini has a homely feel to it. An idyllic spot for a family holiday in Greece with lot of hotels that are not perched precariously on the cliffs.

Vatera in Lesvos and Kamares in Sifnos are great for a family holiday in Greece. Kamares maybe better because it is a shallow bay and the sea is generally calmer even on windy days. Both beaches have cafes, restaurants and even rooms or hotels on the beach.

Whether you are planning a family holiday in Greece or its islands, you and your family will always have a lot to do while enjoying the sites, sounds and beautiful scenery together.

    Had A Wonderful Time In Greece

    Having our family vacation in Greece was really a wonderful experience. We went to Psarou Beach Hotel and stayed there for a week.

    The place was so great. Their accommodation, food and service was topnotch. Its silvery sparkling sand and azure water were breath-taking. We enjoyed swimming, scuba diving and even tried windsurfing for the first time.

    Of course, what makes the place so majestic is its quietness. We had peace of mind and tranquility, far from the hustle and bustle of the city life.

    Hopefully we could go back there soon. Can’t wait any longer.

    A Love Affair WIth Santorini

    I love romantic movies especially when it is set in Santorini, Greece. There is something about Santorini that makes me feel like I want to be in love. That is why, it has always been my dream to visit there.

    It was late last year that my parents told us that we will have a family vacation and it was up to my brother and I to choose where we want to go. So, we chose Santorini.

    When we arrived there, it felt like heaven. The sea, scenery and the place was so great. It was like at any moment, I could just close my eyes and die.

    The hotel that we stayed in was so great. They had great accommodations, food and most of all, great people. When I get married, I want to make it happen in Santorini. It is like a heaven here on Earth.

      Greece with Teenagers

      You can go to the Northeast Coast of Corfu, they have activities and great nightlife for your teenage kids while you can still enjoy the serenity of the place.
