we are taking our holiday on one of the Greek islands this year but as we haven't been before we have no idea which one or which resort to chose! Can any one help?
We are a couple in our late 40's, we are looking for somewhere which isn't too rowdy ( but not too quiet! )
We want a resort where we are within walking distance to a nice beach and also the local tourist type shops.
We normally holiday in palm nova, Majorca and its a bit confusing looking at all the Greek islands and deciding which to chose!
Maybe any one that has been some where nice could recommend a island and resort?
Thank you very much
The beach is soft golden sand and you can wade out in the crystal clear sea for 50 yards and it's still only up to your waist.
There are plenty of bars and tavernas all serving traditional dishes along with an international menu.
I would say most tourists are mainly older couples or families with children.
how about you looking at TSILIVI its on ZANTE a great place to visit.Its very close to the hub of things not too rowdy but quiet.Nice beach etc you could have a look at it on Tripadviser.
I hope you get sorted and have a great holiday.
Rhodes is a good choice with plenty of resorts to choose from. My faves are Pefokos, Lindos and Lardos. Slightly more expensive cost of living than on Zante.
Corfu. Again, plenty of resorts to choose from. My problem with Corfu is the mosquitoes. They are rife, even during day time. This is due to Corfu being a very green island which can be a plus. Corfu town is exquisite and a must do if you go there.
Crete. The largest island of Greece. Lots and lots to see and do with loads of resorts. As this is the most southerly island, the weather "out of season" is good.
Some of the resorts (Ag Nicholas, Elounda) have a lengthy transfer from the airport. Up to 2 hours if on the free transfer.
Mykonos. Party island. I don't think this would suit you.
Peloponnese. On the mainland so not an island. This is where you find Olympia, Delphi etc.
Lots of exploring to do. I don't know enough about it as only been to the 2 places mentioned above.
