DIVE INTO SUMMER 2022
Go Island hopping around the Greek gems
With a coastline of about 16,000 km, including the mainland and some 6,000 islands (of which only 227 are inhabited), Greece is one of the world’s premier sailing destinations. Blessed with warm weather, four different archipelagos and seven island chains, sailing holidays here are safe and easy-going – in the company of the sea god Poseidon himself. Sink your toes deep into the sand and listen to the warm Aegean waters lap the shore as you have nowhere else to be. This is island life. Swoon at the majestic beauty of Crete or indulge in the pulsing nightlife of Rhodes. Wander through lush wildflowers in spring on Kos.
Trying to find your way around 14,800km of coastline on the Greek islands and mainland (not to mention the hundreds of beaches awarded Blue Flag certificates for environmental cleanliness) isn’t easy. So we’ve focused on the beaches that make you want to drop what you’re doing and book your holidays to Greece right away: There are so many great beaches on Kos, but you’re not leaving without experiencing Agios Stephanos beach. Likewise, Balos, Preveli and Elafonisi beaches are must-sees depending on where you’re holidaying in Crete, just as Tsambika Beach and Saint Paul’s bay in Rhodes.
Dine like a local and taste the real Greek flavours
A ripe tomato dipped in the sea. The musky scent of oregano and sage carried on the breeze. The faint jangle of goat bells. Peach nectar trickling down salty skin. The distant throb of an outboard engine, slipping over the horizon. Moonlight over marble.
Throughout the year festivals dot the Greek calendar. Ubiquitous Saints Days occur year-round from small village to big city. Carnival (also known as Apokreas) is a time for dress-up and parades; Patras Carnival is the most well-known. The fabulous, suitably famous Greek Easter is a week-long springtime celebration. And the main summertime event is the Athens & Epidaurus Festival, when the exquisite ancient Theatre of Epidavros and Athens’ Odeon of Herodes Atticus (right by the Acropolis) are the headline venues of this cultural feast with a top line-up of local and international music, dance and theatre.
