Travel Bloggers Greece’s founder Elena, from Travel Greece, Travel Europe, recommends Naxos for families. “Naxos has long golden sandy beaches with safe warm waters for young kids. It also offers a large choice of family-friendly accommodation and activities. Naxos Town Chora is ideal for families, in the evenings the harbor becomes a pedestrian walk making it safe for children to roam around and play”.
Family Travel expert Celeste, from Family Experiences Blog has been to most islands in Greece and likes the larger islands of Rhodes and Crete. “On these islands, families can find organized beaches with calm waters for young kids. There is much choice in excellent family luxury resorts and there are things to do for older kids and teens such as outdoor activities and water parks.
The islands near Athens are great for combining a beach vacation with a visit to the Greek capital. Hydra is my favorite because cars are not allowed on this beautiful island making it a safe place for young kids”.
Limitless Travelling blogger Katerina believes that Corfu is a great choice for families. “Corfu hosts some wonderful resorts that are perfect for relaxing and comfortable holidays with children. Corfu’s beaches are safe and well organized with playgrounds and water attractions. It’s worth visiting the Aqualand Water Park – considered one of the best in Europe -, the Karagiozis shadow theatre and local folk festivals”.
Callie thinks that Halkidiki, and more specifically the second of the three peninsulas is an ideal place for families in Greece. “I think that it combines ingredients for all tastes. The first leg is for kids who like going out and it has nightlife. The second leg is for sea lovers, it has the best seas in Greece. It also combines a lot of greenery along the sea. Good food, a variety of prices, warm water, a lot of good campsites and also some of the best hotels of Halkidiki”.
Katerina loves camping in Greece. “We love camping, and we stay in Halkidiki with our caravan almost all summer. Its beaches are incomparable!” Katerina is the mother of two teens. “Travel with my teens is great! We prefer to visit places with museums and archaeological sites so we can explore the subjects that my kids have learned about in school. This way, we combine learning with fun”.
