Family Trips to Greece
Greece is home to some of the most spectacular beaches on Earth, with everything from picture-perfect white sandy stretches to volcanic black sands and even red beaches. If you’re dreaming of spending your days enjoying the sun, sand and the sea, it’s easy to put together the perfect trip here. You might want to take a catamaran cruise in Santorini, sailing around the dramatic caldera on a luxurious vessel with stops along the way to experience unique Red Beach that might make you think you’ve landed on Mars. Naxos is one of the top options, with stretches like Plaka, famous for its stark white powdery sands and aquamarine waters, although the shipwreck beach in Zante is particularly unique, often depicted in ads showcasing the country’s beauty with its strikingly white beach, sandstone formations and rusty shipwreck edged by surreal blue waters. There are beautiful beaches near Athens along the Athenian Riviera, pink sands in Crete and in breathtaking Kefalonia, home to Myrtos Beach with its sea that changes from sapphire to turquoise and electric blue. The islands are popular for sea kayaking too – Mykonos is just one of the islands popular for this fun pursuit where you can paddle while immersed in the awe-inspiring scenery.
