Standards of these boats vary from simple to luxury, but all provide a relaxing way to discover the Greek Islands. As well as swimming stops, you will also be encouraged to discover local historical sites, view points and landmarks. Most boat trips stop at tavernas in small villages and harbours, so that you can try the flavoursome local food.
Food in Greece is generally simple and tasty, so it shouldn’t be hard to find things that even the fussiest child will eat. Eating is usually al fresco in the summer and the Greeks are very family-orientated, so eating out should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
Most family holidays tend to be based in a beach resort, however adventurous families may also enjoy visiting different islands, or exploring the historical sites of Athens.
Greece enjoys a southern Mediterranean climate and is best visited between May and October. Like other areas in the region the summer months can be particularly hot in the summer months. However if you stay in the shade in the middle of the day as much as possible, protect yourselves from the sun and keep hydrated, you will all have a great and enjoyable holiday.
