Few holidays live up to the idyllic standard set by the Greek islands. Days of saltwater, sunshine and fresh seafood tempt travellers to this volcanic island cluster, which sparkles white and royal blue across the Ionian and Aegean Sea. Greek Island cruises are a popular way to take on the area, allowing travellers to experience the iconic diving in Greece as a regular daily activity. Those without their sea legs can simply ferry between the islands, watching the photogenic Santorini sunset one day, and visiting a local olive oil farm on Crete the next. Found just north of the Mediterranean waters, it’s of no surprise that sailing Greece’s islands takes travellers into a utopian setting of calm bays and long balmy days. Of the some 6,000 islands found off the country’s mainland, just over 200 are inhabited, leaving visitors with an overwhelming list of destinations to choose from. Though many boast a quaint charm and sleepy atmosphere only a few tantalise those wanting to dance the night away or waste afternoons sipping cocktails in a decadent day club. Topping the list of party islands is the rebellious and ritzy Mykonos.
Here you can eat five star meals and see world famous DJs to a postcard backdrop - Buddha Bar’s ceviche seabass and champagne with rose syrup is a typical morning tea on this island. Here on Mykonos you can also watch the lifestyle of the rich and famous with Greece cruise ships and super yachts docking at the Port of Mykonos, as many cruises around Greece tend to start or end on this central island. If your name is being called by the scuba diving Greece has on offer, then sailing the Greek Islands is a necessity, leaving you to explore the coral cliff walls of Chios or the shipwreck off the coast of Kea, and even swim with giant loggerhead turtles off Marathonisi. There is no question of doubt - the Greek islands offer holidays like no other.
