If you’re interested in an all-singing and all-dancing holiday, look no further than the Greek Islands. You don’t need lots of Money Money Money either: there are plenty of affordable ways to enjoy the land of plate smashing and calamari. In fact, the more authentic and off the beaten track the islands are, the more reasonable they tend to be price-wise. Take a look at my top picks below for the places with the best cinematic scenery (impromptu cliff top church wedding not necessarily guaranteed).
With stunning landscapes, secluded beaches and charming towns, Kefalonia will give you a real taste of authentic Greece. Cave Drogarati is always waiting to be explored. It’s one of Greece’s oldest caves and is home to a romantic, sunlit underground lake. Take some inspiration from Mamma Mia! and travel around the island on a motor-cruiser to discover all those special, secret spots.
If you want to Take a Chance on one of the world’s most iconic destinations, the blue-domed white buildings of Santorini are sure to capture your imagination. Famed for its amazing sunsets, the island has long been the place to flock to for loved-up couples and honeymooners. Spend the warm evenings overlooking midnight blue seas with a glass of wine in hand; it’s the perfect end to a spectacular day.
The perfect balance between sandy beach and lush greenery, Skiathos is somewhere I Do, I Do, I Do recommend going to. Head to Troulos for picturesque walking trails, or up to Banana Bay for some lively nightlife to prove you’re a Dancing Queen. For something a bit different, the forest at Koukounaries is home to a tranquil, natural lake and a variety of species of birds. Why not spend the afternoon there?
Don’t worry, you have read this right. Croatia is on my Greek Islands list. Why, you ask? The upcoming second Mamma Mia! film was shot there. Although the two destinations are over 1,000 miles apart, they share many of the same beautiful features. If you did want to experience this lush, green paradise, use SENTIDO Kaktus as your base for all your adventures.
Well, I’m sure wherever you go you’ll ABBA amazing time! Which island sounds perfect for you, or are you more tempted to try Croatia? Let me know in the comments below.
