Welcome to a sun-soaked journey through the Greek Isles! We’re about to embark on a virtual voyage that will transport you to three of the most heavenly beach destinations in Greece. The aquamarine waters, golden sands, and laid-back vibes of these coastal havens are waiting to wash over you. Whether you’re dreaming of your next vacation or simply seeking a momentary escape, join us as we explore the enchanting beaches of Kefalonia, Corfu, and Paros. Let’s dive in and make some memories
- Corfu: The Jewel of the Best Greek Islands!
Corfu, a gem among the Greek islands, proudly claims its spot on the podium of your top island destinations. From the mesmerizing shores of Paleokrastritsa and its serene monastery to the vibrant nightlife of Sidari and the enchanting “Canal d’amour” beach, the coastal retreat of Agios Georgios, and the historic charm of Corfu’s old town, this island offers an array of experiences to cherish this summer.
The best time to visit Corfu is undoubtedly during the spring (from May) and summer months (until late August). While April and September may witness some rainfall, it’s a far cry from the heavier downpours of November and December, which are best avoided. However, the winter rains have a silver lining, making Corfu one of the greenest and most picturesque Greek islands.
Corfu’s history is a tapestry woven with influences from the Venetians, Arabs, and British, who held sway over the island for centuries. Exploring this rich historical past is a delight, but the true magic of Corfu lies in its paradisiacal beaches, delectable wine, and exquisite virgin olive oil. You can indulge in a private Corfu full-day wine tasting tour or a 5-hour private Corfu & Achillion Palace tour, adding a layer of exclusivity to your visit.
As you plan your Corfu getaway, ensure you’ve secured both your flights to Corfu Airport and accommodations at the best available prices. This ensures a dream holiday experience on one of the most captivating Greek islands.
Getting There: Your journey to Corfu begins by booking flights to Corfu Kerkyra Airport.
Where to Stay: For a tranquil escape from the city’s hustle and bustle, consider “Akti Barbati Houses,” located a mere 100 meters from the picturesque Barmpati Beach. This charming accommodation promises a comfortable and memorable stay, ensuring that you’re well-rested and ready to explore the treasures of Corfu.
- Kefalonia Island: Nature’s Paradise in the Ionian
Prepare to be captivated by the highest peaks in the Ionian Islands as you embark on a journey to one of Greece’s most exquisite destinations, Kefalonia. Situated to the south of Corfu and Lefkada, Kefalonia is renowned for its enchanting sandy coves, offering a delightful playground for beach enthusiasts. Notable among them are the pristine shores of Myrtos Beach and the alluring Antisamos Beach, each a gem waiting to be explored.
For those with an appreciation of nature’s wonders, the Melissani Lake is a must-visit attraction, celebrated as one of the finest natural marvels in all of Greece.
If you have a taste for fine wines and delectable cuisine, Kefalonia will not disappoint. This island is a gourmet’s haven, boasting traditional flavors, exquisite local wines, heavenly honey, and exceptional virgin olive oil. After a satisfying food tour, treat yourself to a romantic evening on a traditional wooden sailing boat, where you can bask in the breathtaking sunset over the shimmering sea.
Getting There: To start your adventure on Kefalonia Island, secure your flights to Kefalonia International Airport. Your journey to this natural paradise begins with this simple step.
Where to Stay: For a truly rejuvenating experience and the luxury of a sublime pool, consider booking a room at “F Zeen” at the best available price. Here, you can relish panoramic views of the Ionian Sea and lush gardens, ensuring a serene and tranquil escape during your visit to Kefalonia.
- Paros: The Quintessential Greek Island Experience
If you were to select a single Greek island in the serene Aegean Sea for your vacation, Paros Island would undoubtedly be the frontrunner.
Our affection for Paros runs deep, and it’s not hard to see why. The island boasts an array of spectacular sandy beaches, picturesque traditional villages, and iconic white houses adorned with those signature blue roofs. Here, you’ll also discover charming fishing ports that lend an air of authenticity to the island. Paros is often likened to Santorini, but with a more tranquil ambiance, and it bears a resemblance to Mykonos, minus the bustling nightlife.
For the ideal Paros experience, consider planning your visit in May or June, or perhaps in September. During these months, the climate is perfect, and accommodations tend to be more budget-friendly. However, if your schedule demands a visit during the peak season, rest assured that Paros remains an exceptional destination. Be mindful, though, that accommodations and ferry crossings may come at a slightly higher cost.
The most convenient way to reach Paros is to book flights to Athens, Mykonos, or Santorini, and subsequently board a ferry. The journey takes approximately four hours from Athens and a mere 30 minutes from Mykonos. In recent years, Paros has also established an airport that connects with Athens and Thessaloniki, offering more travel options. To maximize your savings, book your flights, accommodations, and tours in Paros at the best available prices.
Getting There: Secure your flights to Mykonos, from where you can smoothly reach Paros via a 30-minute ferry ride.
Where to Stay: For an extraordinary experience adorned with vibrant bougainvillea and a warm welcome from the host, Stefano, we wholeheartedly recommend booking your room at the best available price at “Stefano Apartments.” This accommodation gem stands as one of our bestsellers in Paros, promising a delightful and unforgettable stay on the island.
As we bid adieu to our tour of these three Greek beach paradises, we’re left with the salty breeze in our hair and the gentle lull of the waves in our hearts. Kefalonia, Corfu, and Paros have revealed their unique charms, and we hope you’ve found inspiration for your next coastal escape. These destinations are more than just picturesque postcards; they are slices of heaven where time slows down, and worries wash away with the tide. So, keep those beach dreams alive and who knows, your next adventure might just be a flight away from these unforgettable Greek shores!
