Must-See Places In The Greek Islands
There’s a reason why the Greek Islands attract travellers from every corner of the globe each year, and while we can’t cover every must-see location now, here are just a few to tempt you to this beautiful part of the world on your next sailing getaway.
Stroll the Romantic Streets of Mykonos Town
Wandering down streets lined with sparkling white buildings with rich blue accents and adorned with beautiful pink flowers is a dreamy experience. You’ll very quickly begin to feel as though you’ve walked into one of those photographs you see in glossy travel magazines that are so out of this world beautiful you can’t quite be sure they’re actually real. Take it from us, the beauty of Mykonos Town is real. It just needs to be seen to be believed!
Enjoy Naxos’s White Sandy Beaches on Your Sailing Getaway
Renowned the world over, the beaches of Naxos are extremely special. Spend a few hours lounging and soaking in the spectacular sea views with a refreshing drink in hand, or, if you’re feeling more adventurous and the waters are tempting you, the coastline on the west of the island is the perfect place to try your hand at windsurfing!
The Charming Old Port of Naoussa on Paros
Watch fishing boats bringing in the catch of the day before sampling some super-fresh seafood in one of the many charming taverns and eateries. You’ll fall in love with the narrow winding streets, unique boutiques and incredible views. There are ruins of an old fort which used to protect the port and you should be able to catch a glimpse of one of the island’s famous windmills too.
The Breathtakingly Beautiful Panagia Gremiotissa on Ios
This hilltop church, whose name translates as Virgin Mary of the Steep Cliff, was constructed in 1797 and is more than worth the walk up. Its famous blue dome and impressive bell tower are even more spectacular up close, and you won’t want to miss out on the panoramic views of the island, the port and the sparkling Aegean Sea below.
