Looking for somewhere special to take your loved one on holiday this year? Why not try one of the Greek Islands.Santorini
Oia, a town in the north west of this unique volcanic island in the Aegean sea, is said to have the most beautiful sunsets anywhere in the world. A picturesque town with houses built into volcanic rock, the result of probably the largest volcanic eruption in history back in 1500BC. Pyrgos is built on a hill and the views across the island are wonderful. The town has traditional houses in a maze of narrow streets and an interesting Venetian Castle. Perissa in the south east of the island has a lovely beach with clear blue water and smooth dark sand.Aegina
Aegina Town has narrow streets packed with interesting houses and shops. There are lovely restaurants and cafes where you can while away the time. Agia Marina is a touristic place but the beach is beautiful. There are some lovely restaurants and some great bars! The Barracuda is right on the beach so you can sit watching the sun set whilst enjoying a refreshing cocktail. Also, not far from the town, is the Temple of Afea in a lovely setting with some panoramic views.Thassos
Thassos is the northern most island in the Aegean sea and is also known as 'The Emerald Island'. Paradise Beach is an isolated beach with green hills and mountains one side and the clear blue Aegean sea the other.
