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.
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.
