Greek Islands

Glorious coastlines & ancient wonders

Tailor-made holidays to the Greek Islands

Introduction

Serene, sun-kissed and steeped in history, the Greek Islands have long been a Wexas favourite. Whether you're a sun-worshipper or a student of the ancient world, these mesmerising islands offer the perfect summer or autumn break. Speak to our specialists, who are on hand to help you tailor-make your ultimate Greek Island holiday.

Incredible coastlines

Greece, and particularly its islands, are famed for their sparkling seas and gorgeous coastlines, which range from idyllic beaches to dramatic cliffs. And, while they certainly tick the relaxation box, they also offer the chance to get active if sunbathing isn't your thing. From kite surfing to kayaking to spotting dolphins and turtles, there's plenty to keep you occupied between soaking up those rays. Then, if you head in land, you'll discover hidden villages, ancient ruins and glorious hiking trails all just a stone's throw from the water's edge.

Ancient wonders

Of course, Greece is famed for its ancient wonders, with colourful mosaics, neoclassical villas and the remnants of once-grand temples among the myriad treasures on show. Perhaps you'll make for the ruins of Delos, marvel at the spectacle of Thira, perched above the Santorini coast, or wander the cobblestones of Rhodes' medieval old town. Corfu's impressive fortress is another highlight while on Crete the Minoan Palace of Knossos is, no matter your views on its divisive restoration, one of Greece's most important historical sites. Whichever you choose to visit, it's impossible not to be awestruck by the sheer scale and beauty of it all.

Fabulous food

Food, glorious food. No matter where you travel to, the Greeks know how to put on a feast and you'll soon find your time in the country enveloped by the sheer variety of fabulous food on offer. Expect plenty of traditional dishes, with influences from the Ottomans to Italy, all showcased using the finest, freshest local ingredients. Expect rich stews, delicious cheese, fragrant olives, stuffed vine leaves and a wealth of delicious seafood. Yum!
