From the myriad of gold sandy beaches and hidden coves along Corfu’s long coastline to the small bays and inlets of Ithaca, there’s a Greek island beach holiday to meet everyone’s expectations. Some shores are more sociable, where sunbeds, parasols and watersports are provided and where sun-seekers can enjoy a Greek salad or a glass of something chilled. Other lesser-known beaches, some reached only by boat, are the quintessentially idyllic escapes, short on facilities but plentiful on peace and quiet. Wherever you choose, beach holidays on Greek Islands promise warm sunshine and welcoming blue seas.
Child-friendly beaches with shallow seas
The Greek Islands boast plenty of child-friendly beaches with gently shelving sands and shallow seas, including award-winning Gerakas beach in Zakynthos, just a short walk from Simpson Travel’s Crèche and Children’s Club at Periyali Villas. Simpson’s other Crèche and Children’s Club, at Mousses Villas in Lefkada, is located near to Agios Ioannis beach making it easy for little ones to play in the sand and paddle in the sea.
Relaxation or activity on a Greek island beach holiday
Greek Island beach holidays are a great choice for couples too, from the relaxation promised on a secluded, peaceful beach in timeless Paxos to the pleasures of sea kayaking off the coast of Kefalonia. The inland hamlets and scenic countryside of Crete give way to endless beaches along its extensive coastline while tiny Meganissi’s glorious white beaches and Paxos’ secluded coves all entice the visitor to enjoy a true get-away-from-it-all Greek Island beach holiday.
