Destinations in Greece

  • Athens

    Athens

    Centre of the ancient world, Athens is every bit as glorious and atmospheric as you'd imagine.
  • Crete

    Crete

    The birthplace of Minoan civilisation was bound to be beautiful, cultured and rich in history; the island’s Riviera-rivalling beaches, mysterious caves and deeply traditional, hospitable locals are unexpected extras.
  • East Peloponnese

    East Peloponnese

    Named after an ancient hero who won a chariot race and then a kingdom, the finger-shaped Peloponnese is a timeless corner of mainland Greece…
  • Folegandros

    Folegandros

    Over Santorini? Meet its sister island, the quiet and less touristy Folegandros, less than an hour away by catamaran.
  • Halkidiki

    Halkidiki

    Aquamarine skies, turquoise waters, crystal-white sands: Halkidiki's beautiful Blue Flag beaches are underpopulated, unspoilt and utterly Instagram-worthy.
  • Ionian Islands

    Ionian Islands

  • Kefalonia & Ithaca

    Kefalonia & Ithaca

    Impossibly ultramarine waters, plunging volcanic mountains and hidden pebble beaches: the Ionian pairing of Kefalonia and Ithaca is a haven for seafaring romantics.
  • Mykonos

    Mykonos

    Mykonos was the first Greek island to be ‘discovered’ in the Fifties; Chora, the main town, rapidly gained a reputation as the Cyclades’ most happening harbour.
  • Santorini

    Santorini

    This rugged Aegean beauty, the southernmost of the Cyclades, is famed for its sunsets, wine and the turquoise sea that surrounds it.
  • Spetses

    Spetses

    Accessible only by sea, it’s easy to see why Spetses is the retreat of choice for affluent Athenians. The best way to enjoy the town’s mansion-strewn skyline is from offshore: waterskiing, sailing or swimming in the sun-sparkled Aegean.

DIVE IN

DIVE IN

Underwater explorers will love Gayana Eco Resort's coral-dotted, marine-reserve dive centre (the treks into the Borneo jungle won't disappoint, either). Bali's Alila Manggis is splashing distance from seven of the globe's best dive sites and is edged by sublime snorkeling waters. Sumba, an hour's flight from Bali, is a hush-hush travellers' secret, and at Nihiwatu you'll sample the island's best: incredible ocean views, breeze-cooled outdoor living and world-class surf breaks in reach. A speedboat ride from Amanzoe, a marble-hewn hilltop haven in southern Greece, is the island of Dokos, whose diver-drawing coast lays claim to the world's oldest known shipwreck.

The modern Aphrodite

The modern Aphrodite

Nibble grapes in your daybed at clifftop hideaway Iconic Santorini, while gazing down at the mortals by the sparkly blue sea below. And if you need to vary the view, island-hop your way around the Cyclades. This. Is. Bliss. 

IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR

IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR

After-dark holiday entertainment needn’t mean sangria-crawls down the Magaluf mile, especially when you’ve got the cocktail-clinking of Palma’s Old Town a few miles up the Mallorcan coast: book a place among the beautiful people at Puro Hotel’s buzzy, DJ-soundtracked beach club. Sunsets at San Giorgio in Mykonos are crowd-pullingly spectacular, but that’s not the end of the entertainment, rather an invitation to dance the night away under the stars. Glamourpusses: dress up in your designer best for martinis in Miami or champagne in St Tropez
