True Diversity

The 16,000km or so of Greek coastline is as diverse as it is extensive. Choose from secluded bays and coves, picture-book sandy beaches backed by dunes, or dark volcanic sands. Explore coastal caves flanked by steep rocks, pebbly shores and coastal wetlands, all lapped by the clear waters which make both the mainland and the thousands of Greek islands, so popular.

Numerous organised beaches cater to most needs with their umbrellas, sun loungers and restaurants, along with water sports facilities. As well as water skiing, windsurfing and diving, the adventurous can try two-person parachuting, jet skiing and kite surfing. All organised beaches also have lifeguard towers ensuring safe swimming in the area. And for those who crave solitude, a more remote spot away from the masses can always be discovered.
