Party: Paradise Beach in Mykonos is where the beautiful people mingle, where you’ll dance your sandals off and where you’ll watch the sun come up and go down as music fills the air. Grab your glad rags and make sure you spend a few days topping up that tan, before you hit the party capital of the island.

Relax: Paros and its little neighbor Antiparos are perfect for long lazy days in the sunshine. Grab a water taxi and head for one of the breathtaking sandy beaches, where you’ll find a little taverna, a couple of other lazy bones, loungers and the perfect spot under the hot Greek sunshine.

With the kids: Head for Crete. The largest Greek island is a perfect kid’s paradise. There are miles of beaches, loads of restaurants and eateries, bucket loads of water parks, excellent child friendly hotels and amazing facilities across the whole island.

Couples Greece holidays: Without a doubt, the best choice for couples looking for Greece holidays is Santorini.
