Holidays on the Greek Islands

I think that one of the main reasons for someone taking Holidays to Greece is the number and variety of islands here. There's no other country like it in that respect in Europe. A holiday on the Greek islands offers you the kind of relaxation you cannot get on the mainland.

Of course all of them offer the sea - and there are so many beaches to choose from! But they also offer spectacular countryside and other sights. Off the west coast there are the Ionian islands, including Corfu and Kefalonia, which are much greener than the islands on the other side of the mainland. Kefalonia is the island where the book and film Captain Corelli's Mandolin was set. So if you like what you saw in the film, then Holidays to Kefalonia is for you!

The large islands of Rhodes and Crete, south of the mainland, offer not only great beaches, but also beautiful countryside and historic sights - the ancient Minoan site of Knossos in Crete and the castle of the Templar Knights in Rhodes. Smaller islands include Santorini - an ancient volcano! - and Kos, not far from Rhodes.

All of the islands offer accommodation to suit all tastes and pockets, and I would definitely recommend that you should visit at least one of the Greek islands. Perhaps you could visit a different one each year!
