Greece has a coastline that stretches over a thousand kilometers, looking out on thousands of stunning islands. Idyllic beaches fringed with pine trees, sheltered bays and coves, and glittering clear blue waters beckon travelers from all over. One is spoiled for choice when it comes to the variety of islands or beaches to choose from.
Whether it’s the pink-white sandy beaches of Crete, the unique Red Beach on Santorini or the popular Elia in Mykonos, Greece’s coastline will not disappoint. You can lose yourself in the beach party vibe, get your adrenaline pumping with some extreme watersports, or simply lie back under the sun, soaking in this special paradise. Greece’s outdoors, however, is not all about the islands and the rugged coastline but also about the mountains. While the Mediterranean borders most of the country, the interior is 80% mountainous with beautiful thick forests. Its intriguing limestone topography attracts rock climbers to put their mettle to the test, availing of spectacular views from dizzying heights.
If you’re overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of its outdoors, Greece’s ancient cities with their rich history won’t disappoint either. The cradle of western civilization, Athens, ticks all the right boxes for the history buff. Head to the majestic Acropolis or the Theatre of Herodes Atticus to understand why the Greeks were so instrumental in shaping civilization. Move a few centuries ahead to Meteora to marvel at the Byzantine monasteries perched precariously on towering rocks, or walk the cobbled streets of the Knights in medieval Rhodes.
Socializing is big on the Greek agenda and the squares in the towns and cities are great places to feel the local vibe while sipping coffee or enjoying a shot of ouzo. Greek food is all about fresh produce, whether its the feta, authentic olive oil or fish straight from the sea, the flavors are sure to tickle your tastebuds.
