Mythical wonders, pine-clad mountains, heavenly cuisine, and beaches fit for the gods: Greece is a holiday hotspot millennia in the making.

From its dazzling islands to the ancient history of Athens, Greece holidays are some of the best in Europe. Whether you’re after a relaxing beach holiday, a rustic escape in the mountains, or an exciting city break, Greece won’t let you down.

For most, the main allure of a holiday to Greece lies on its legendary sands. Idyllic islands such as Zakynthos, Skiathos, Mykonos, and Kefalonia attract travelers year after sun-kissed year. Families flock to Corfu for safe sands and watersports. The pebble beaches of Crete are packed with beach clubs. Volcanic Santorini, with its blue domes and white cottages, has become an Instagram sensation for couples and luxury lovers.

In the capital, Athens, you’ll find a city bursting with ancient history, contemporary culture, and lively nightlife. Spend your days exploring treasures of the past and nights sipping cocktails in rooftop bars. The iconic Acropolis, visible from almost every terrace and rooftop, is just the tip of what this exciting city has to offer.

For a slower pace, visit rural Greece, where olive groves stretch out for miles. Hike up Mount Olympus or sail around the clear waters of the Pelion Peninsula.

With luxury hotels, family-friendly resorts, and welcoming guesthouses, Greece holidays really are the whole package.

For cheap holidays

Island hopping around Greece is a go-to for budget travellers, with most ferries starting and ending in Athens. An hour's ferry ride from the capital is Agistri, an unspoilt island with hiking trails, beaches, and authentic tavernas.

For budget-conscious travellers, consider Lefkada, a quieter Ionian island where hotels and resorts offer good value.

For unforgettable family adventures

With ancient temples, jumbo waterparks, and some of the best beaches in the world, Greece's islands are a firm favourite for family holidays. Naxos in the Cyclades has 100-plus miles of beaches with soft sands and safe, shallow waters ideal for young children. Corfu and Crete are also popular options for families.

For older children and teenagers, the beaches of Kardamena, Kefalos, and Agios Stefanos on Kos offer adrenaline-fuelled watersports and kid-focused fun.

For an all-inclusive holiday

Greece offers a wide selection of all-inclusive deals. For a romantic escape, consider adults-only hotels like Stella Island in Crete. Family-friendly resorts with waterparks, kids' clubs, and entertainment can be found in Zakynthos, Rhodes, and Corfu.

For sun-kissed beach getaways

From the sands of Mykonos to the pink shallows of Crete’s Elafonissi Beach and the beach bars and tavernas of Lindos and Faliraki in Rhodes, every Greek island has blissful beaches.

For a remote beach getaway, visit Skopelos, the set for Mamma Mia!, and seek out Perivoliou Beach on its northeast coast, a fantastic snorkelling spot.

For art and history lovers

Athens offers ancient history, contemporary culture, and eclectic dining. Explore museums like the National Historical Museum and the National Archaeological Museum of Athens. Wander the historic neighbourhoods of Plaka and Psirri, watch the changing of the guard at the Presidential Mansion, and walk up to the Acropolis.

For enchanting romantic escapes

With its sunsets over Santorini's caldera and the bohemian vibe of Hydra, Greece is perfect for romantics. Consider a boutique hotel like Lesante Blu Exclusive in Tragaki, Zakynthos, with its infinity pool and private beach, or Bill & Coo Coast Suites in Mykonos for fine dining on the beach.

FAQs about holidays to Greece

Is it safe to go to Greece?

Greece is safe, but it's recommended that you carry travel insurance and don't leave bags unattended. For the most up-to-date travel advice for Greece, check the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office.

Do I need to have a visa to go to Greece?

You can visit Greece for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa. That means if you're travelling to Greece and other Schengen countries without a visa, the entire trip must be within the 90-day limit.

What vaccinations do I need to go to Greece?

You don't need any vaccinations to visit Greece. For the most up-to-date advice, consult the NHS website before you travel.

Are there any local customs I need to be aware of?

Be respectful when visiting religious sites (covered shoulders and legs). Tipping is not mandatory but will be well received where the service was particularly good. Haggling and bartering are not common – the price is usually the price. Avoid the “OK” (forefinger and thumb pinched in a circle with the other three fingers up) as this is offensive.

What is the best way to travel around Greece?

The Greek ferry network is extensive, fairly priced and includes high-speed car ferries, catamarans and hydrofoils. Between November and April services are limited, though domestic airlines fly between the islands. A mainland train service connects Athens to Thessaloniki and beyond.
