Why You Should Visit Greek Islands in September

By Poundtravel

Greek Islands in september

Greece is a much-loved holiday destination. And its islands surrounded by turquoise waters, covered by rocky hills or sheltering ancient ruins, make us dream with open eyes.

Longtime favorites, Santorini – Thiraas the locals call it – is visited annually by over 1.5 million tourists worldwide. Named by the Greeks and Thira, it is located in the Aegean Sea and is part of the Cycladic archipelago. Black and red sand volcanic volcanic beaches contrast with the deep blue of the sea waves and the whites of cascading houses on the fiery riverside of Fira. If you are passionate about archeology, you can visit the Prehistoric Museum and the ruins of the Minoan settlement Akrotiri.

Answer 1 of 5: Leaving Athens and heading to Karpathos, we have just over three weeks at this time of the year to go Greek island hopping. I really want to get to …

Island of Kos, part of the Dodecanese archipelago, is the place where the father of medicine, Hippocrates, was born and raised. Surrounded by the mountains, it takes you from the first moment with its olive and olive groves. Here you can find one of the most massive trees in Europe, called the Hippocrates Platan, delightful beaches with fine sand and blue waters. If you arrive on the island, you must visit Thermes Beach, appreciated for the thermal springs that flow directly into the sea.

If you love the sun and want to enjoy it, learn that in Lefkadasummer temperatures start in May and last until October. It is part of the Ionian Islands group, with lush vegetation, dotted with coniferous forests, blue waters and incredibly beautiful landscapes. The island is connected to the mainland by a floating bridge. The most populous part of the island is in the eastern part, due to its beaches included in the world’s most beautiful.

Comforced by the blue waves of the Ionian Sea, Corfu is a delightful blend of hidden bays, quiet beaches and encampments included in UNESCO heritage. That’s because the old houses were all hand-sculpted either by the Byzantines or by the Venetians. Angelokastro Castle, Vlacheraina Monastery and Mandraki Marina are among the favorite destinations.
