Missing Out on Something You Really Want to do or See

Holidays are often the perfect opportunity to try something new and unexpected, but equally, if the thought of doing something or visiting a particular location isn’t making you want to jump up and down with joy and there’s something else you’ve been looking forward to, follow your instincts!

Forgetting to Snap Some Photographs

We’re strong advocates for living in the moment and not through a camera lens, but as the Greek Islands are so beautiful, snapping a few pictures of the stunning ocean sunsets, that superb seafood dish you’ll never forget the taste of, or of yourself all decked out in your snorkelling gear will ensure you won’t ever forget the small details of your sailing getaway.

Not Wandering Off the Beaten Path on Your Sailing Getaway

There are a variety of incredible beaches, restaurants and sightseeing locations on the Greek Islands that are consistently recommended because they provide an excellent feel for the history of island life. However, it can sometimes be easy to forget that exploring other parts of these beautiful islands will also lead to breathtaking secluded coves and lookout spots with spectacular 360 degree views.

Not Sampling the Best of Greek Cuisine

If you spot a sweet ice cream parlour or walk past a restaurant that smells incredible, we highly recommend popping in. We think it’s important to note that you don’t have to be an adventurous eater to have an outstanding culinary experience, so as Greek menus are bursting with fresh seafood, vibrant locally grown vegetables, and sweet melt in the mouth desserts, choose something with ingredients you enjoy and you won’t be disappointed.
