Unspoilt scenery, sun drenched beaches, fabulous food and the friendliest of local people, a family holiday to Greece is a great idea. Thanks to its thriving tourism industry, picturesque landscapes and gorgeous weather all summer long, the Greek islands lend themselves to enjoying a blissful family holiday. But with so many different islands to choose from, which one should you head to for your next family holiday?
For families who’re on a tighter budget Corfu is the best island to head to. Pebbled coves, idyllic beaches and a quaint old town to explore, Corfu is really popular in the summer and has an array of reasonably prices eateries making it ideal for families. With flights to the island regularly leaving most UK islands it’s also one of the most accessible Greek islands and there’s an Aqualand waterpark there too, perfect for a fun filled family day out.
A Greek island that’s always been popular with tourists Crete has lots going on for families as the largest of all the Greek islands. The landscape is so diverse that it makes it ideal for families who want a number of different things from their holiday, from swimming in crystal clear waters to cycling along winding roads though the white mountains. Kids will love the opportunity to enjoy water sports in the sea and with an abundance of restaurants and café bars in the main Ag Nik resort, you’ll never be short of somewhere to stop for an ice cream. With Tots to Travel you’ll find a number of child friendly villas in Crete that are perfect for a family holiday to Greece.
Very much like Ibiza, glamourous Mykonos has a party reputation that mean most families instantly discount it from their options list. Whilst it’s true that Mykonos’ night life is a defining feature, it’s also an incredible beautiful island with a charming quieter side that families will adore. Tons of shops and restaurants line the white streets of the town which interlock like a maze, meaning there’s plenty of exploring to do. Families should stay in the Ornos resort just 5 minutes away from the town where you’ll find a stunning beach and all the amenities for an unforgettable family holiday.
So with inviting clean waters, luscious food and incredible views, you’ll now have to have a full family discussion to decide which Greek island to visit first.
