Daydreaming about Greece all day every day! Thinking of all the pitta & tzatziki, Mythos (that's greek beer btw), and of course, the unreal views, sunsets and beaches. The Greece withdrawal symptoms are hitting HARD. So this is what we know about getting into Greece...
Updated June 9th, 2022
Yes! Greece is open for tourism, in fact we'll be here ALL summer long on both our Greece Island Hopper and Greece Sailing Adventure. Here's Greece's latest entry requirements... Dun, dun, dunnnnn. Greece has dropped ALL Covid related entry requirements meaning both vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers can enter without the need or a PCR test or having to show proof of vaccination.
The best time to visit Greece is Springtime, April to early June, and Autumn, September to October. You'll find the temperatures to be warm but not tooooo hot, as we know Greece has the potential to get VERY hot & steamy during the summer months. During these months you'll find that Greece is not as busy compared to the height of the summer. Although Greece is 10/10 whenever you go, just if you go in the summer.. make sure to take plenty of suncream (environment friendly if pos)!
Not sure about you, but I've been dreaming of lying on a white sandy beach, Aperol Spritz in hand, eating halloumi gyros all day and then going to watch a BANGING sunset. That has Greece written all over it if you ask me. We just want to live our best life in Greece! So once that time comes, here are some bucket list ticking activities & places to visit for when you are in Greece!
Syvota, one of the smaller Ionian Islands, is a MUST visit. Seriously. Think of paradise, and you're basically imagining Syvota. Syvota is also one of the most beautiful islands in the whole of Greece. The blue lagoon is mesmerising, the sand is golden, and it's famous for a reason. Swimming, snorkelling sunbathing are just a few of the activities on hand when visiting Syvota's blue lagoon. Trust us when we say it's not to be missed. Soooo, you know what to do.
World. Famous. Sunsets. Yeah, we said it. The sunsets in Greece are OUT of this world! Gaze out onto the well-known white villas of Santorini while the sun is setting across the ocean. Hues of oranges, pinks, purples and golds all creating what we like to call a magnificent, 10/10, jaw-dropping sunset. Defo one for the 'gram, make all your friends & fam jealous while you're at it! Alexa, play Sunset Lover by Petit Biscuit. See you in Santorini for sunset!
The windmills in Mykonos are a bucket list activity, 100%! A famous spot for travellers and photographers, overlooking Mykonos and the ocean, there are 16-grain windmills which have made quite the reputation for themselves. Get yourself some fab snaps in front of the windmills, and take in the fantastic view in front of you.. The bright blue sea, white villas, clear blue sky and mountainous landscape of Greece.
You know what we say, don't quit your daydream! Until next time.. hopefully on a beach in Greece!
