When it comes to family vacations, many people across Europe choose the Greek shores for a variety of reasons. The fine weather and the lovely beaches are probably the main reason, but there are also many historical towns or family-friendly resorts where you can spend quality time with your loved ones.
Among the most popular destination for families coming to vacation in Greece is Halkidiki, located on the mainland, bordering the Aegean Sea. With seemingly endless stretches of beach, lots of small villages for exploring the Greek way of life and having an authentic trip, complete with all the local flavors and textures. It also features a host of fun activities such as watersports – kite surfing, windsurfing, scuba diving and water skiing among others.
The next family destination is Kos island. This is great for families that like the great outdoors because it has some stunning beaches, great parks and plenty of historical sites to boot. They are all easily accessible thanks to the island’s network of bicycle trails which makes getting around with your kids not only safe but also fun. For a more historical experience, head to the medieval town of Kos.
Rhodes is also a great place to take your family for the summer break. With places outside of town such as Valley of the Butterflies and with the Marine Aquarium in town, your kids are sure to have their days filled with lots of interesting thing to see and do. Also, you’ll find Rhodes is not lacking in the beach department, because, let’s face it, you’ll want to go home with a nice tan and happy memories of lazy days spent on the beach.
So don’t be afraid to bring your family to Greece, whether for a holiday on land or even a more adventurous one on a yacht charter.
