Most favourite islands of Greece

Rhodes - the sunniest island of Greece with many holiday resorts. The lovers of history mostly head to the capital city Rhodes, which is an exhibition of long and colourful history of the island. There are a lot of good maintained sights of many different periods and styles. Not only the architecture, but also the nature is very beautiful here. Many daytrips can be directed there and surely will fascinate you. But what kind of vacation would it be without relaxing on the beach. Rhodes has quite beaches made of sand and also pebble beaches with bigger waves.

Zakynthos - a beautiful island in Ionian Sea is attracting above all with its fresh and diversified nature - enjoyable sandy beaches with crystal-clear water, interesting natural aspects and daytrips, not just by boat. It is almost a duty to buy a turtle souvenier here, a symbol of the island. Also here you can find agile holiday resorts with big hotels, but the real authentic greek atmosphere you can enjoy in the small quiet villages with lovely old churches, monasteries and many other sights.

Santorini - formerly called Théra, very romantic place with typical white-blue churches, which are creating the famous image of Santorini. Except old churches and monasteries you can also find and admire many other historical sights. Our tip for an interesting daytrip is the visit of the archeological site Akrotiri. The unique shape of the island is the consequence of a big volcanic eruption in the 17th - 16th century BC. After the eruption, the peak of the volcano collapsed to the ground and created a huge lagoon in the mainland. The volcanic activity also has affected the look of the beaches, covered by the colourful volcanic sand and stones. The most searched touristic destinations lie around the crater of the volcano called the Caldera. (map of Santorini)

Corfu - The Emerald island, the most green and northern of the Ionian islands. The capital city Corfu or Kerkyra offers its visitors the required comfort and entertainment. As holiday resort you can choose any part of the island, as there are appropriate accommodations in every bigger city or resort. Thanks to beautiful and clean beaches the lovers of sport activities, especially of snorkeling and scuba diving, can enjoy their holiday very much. On the island there is a nicely balanced ratio between the natural and historical sights because of what your daytrips should not get boring.

Kos - the home of Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine. The island is rather flat, good for walking and cykling tours, but has also its "mountain" - the peak Dikeos, 846 metres high, from where there is a beautiful view of the surroundings. Kos is popular especially for its lovely sandy beaches and although it doesn´t belong to the Greece´s largest islands, there is a lot to discover and many historical sights in every part of the island. One of the favorite holiday destinations is definitely the capital city of Kos, which is rich on architectural and natural sights.
