Top 5 things to do on the Greek Islands!

The Greek Islands have been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember! Clear water, sandy beaches & plate smashing all come to mind when I think ‘Greek’. Last summer I finally made my way over to the Greek Islands! After a lot of research into different tour companies, I decided to do a Greek Island Hopping tour.

Looking back on my 11 days hopping through the Greek Islands, I have put together a list of the top 5 must-do things when visiting this idyllic part of the world.

1. Explore Ancient Athens!
Seriously, this place takes the cake! Exploring the Pantheon and the Acropolis, the home of Greek Mythology and the very first Olympic games was such an incredible experience. The area around Monastiraki Square is a melting pot of old and new that you can spend hours

2. Take in a sunset in Oia
There is a reason this is one of the most famous spots to watch a sunset in the world! People flock here in the thousands to catch a glimpse of the sun dipping into the Mediterranean Sea. Do not forget to charge your camera; this is one sunset you will not want to miss!

3. Do a ‘Slammer Shot’ in Ios
The idea of putting on a helmet and slamming a fire extinguisher or skateboard into your head doesn’t sound appealing at first, but once I plucked up the courage to give it a try it was quite fun! A must-do in Ios!

4. Smash plates and eat Greek in Paros
Make sure you spend at least one of your nights immersing yourself in the Greek culture! One of my most memorable nights was spent linking arms with my newfound friends, dancing, smashing plates and eating the most tender octopus I’ve ever had!

5.Get lost in Mykonos
Whitewashed cobblestone streets make up the twisting alleyways throughout Mykonos. You can spend hours meandering through the alleys, stopping at eclectic shops & restaurants at every turn!

A big thanks to my guide, Sarah, from Med Experience for revealing all that the Greek Islands have to offer over an incredible 11 days!

A Fabulous Trip

Thank you for arranging a fabulous trip.

I must admit, the hotel and the staff at Mykonos and Santorini were fabulous and went out of their way for everything we needed. And the place of course was ‘breath taking’.

I would like to thank Dhwani & Travelmartindia team so much for such a wonderful trip. J
