Greece is one of those countries that is instantly recognisable from photos, from the crystal blue Aegean, to the wonderful panoramas of the mainland, this country should be on top of everybody’s bucket list.
And it just so happens that some of the best islands in the whole of Greece are the best value destinations.
Jet2holidays has a bunch of holiday packages at loads of stunning Greek locations that will make you want to just pack your bags and go right now.
They are even offering package holidays that only need a deposit of £60 when booking for next summer.
These packages include the whole holiday, not just the flights, and there really is something for everyone.
Look at Zante for example, the classic party place that’s famous around the world for its amazing nightlife.
There are loads of iconic clubs in the area including the iconic foam parties and clubs who regularly work with BBC Radio 1.
The place is perfect for an Instagram session, from Smuggler’s Cove to Banana Beach, this really is paradise.
The island hugs Laganas, a bay of clear blue sea and home to the Zakynthos (Zante) National Marine Park that has all sorts of marine life, like super-cute loggerhead sea turtles.
Laganas in Zante has everything to offer, no matter what type of holiday you’re after. There’s Tsilivi Waterpark for those who are after a bit of an adrenaline rush, mini golf for a more chilled out afternoon, or fast paced water sports on Banana Beach!
The place is amazing value for money, and is perfect for anyone who’s looking for a laugh and a great time.
If amazing beaches are more your thing, then you can head to Corfu, one of the largest Greek islands.
Corfu has nothing missing in terms of night life either, with Kavos’ 80 bars, but this isn’t all the island has to offer.
You can hop on a speedboat and jet across the idyllic seas toward the Blue Lagoon near Syvota on the mainland – or if you’re in the mood for something different, try riding an inflatable settee, yes you read that right.
Incredible activities also include watersports and bungee jumping, you need to check out what Kavos has to offer.
But Corfu is big, and it’s not hard to get away from crowds and go and find your own little idyllic beach to sunbathe and while away the daylight hours if that’s what you want to do.
As though you didn’t have enough options already, there’s Malia in Crete, Greece’s largest island.
Malia is a tourist Mecca, with streets filled with authentic bars and restaurants along the Malia Mile to fulfil all of your relaxation needs.
There’s also an abundance of boutique shops that are perfect for an afternoon’s shopping over at Aghios Nikolaos, with plenty of places to stop for a cheeky cocktail in between.
If you’re thinking of venturing further into Crete, you couldn’t go far wrong with an off-road safari through huge mountains and gorges, there’s so much more to Crete than Malia.
Not to mention the island’s classic clubs and the massive summer festival Malia Live – party options are in no short supply.
Slightly less well known, but equally as amazing is Kalithea in Halkidiki.
Halkidiki is actually on the mainland, in the north of Greece, but that doesn’t mean it’s cold and it sure doesn’t mean it’s boring.
In the summer, Kalithea plays host to some amazing DJs and events that would rival any club night on the islands.
The best part about Kalithea is that it’s still picturesque and not quite as developed as the other destinations.
You can head to Paliouri – Athitou Street, the main stretch through the area, with is home to a massive hub of nightlife and swanky bar terraces.
There are also plenty of restaurants by the seafront for that perfect Mediterranean vibe, not to mention the massive amounts of classical Greek history – this is the perfect holiday spot.
These deals offer amazing value and choice, with options ranging from 2* to 5* hotels, they cater for everyone.
Flights depart from nine airports across the UK, Manchester, Leeds, East Midlands, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Belfast, Stansted and Birmingham – so get booking!
I’ll see you there!
