Greece’s safe and hospitable seaside resorts and large hotel chains are ideal family-friendly holiday destinations. Hotels right next to the beach with the full panoply of family-friendly facilities: playgrounds, kiddie pools, child entertainment programmes and sports. Islands throughout the Ionian and Aegean and coastal resorts on the mainland await you. Come enjoy the sun and sea together with your loved ones on a perfect tailor-made holiday.
If you love Greek islands then take note: Tinos, Naxos, Paros, Syros, Sifnos, the Sporades, Mytilini, Crete, Lefkada, Kefalonia, Corfu, Aegina, Evia and Thasos are some of the best places to go in Greece for families. The mainland coast is just as interesting. Some of the ideal family destinations are in Messinia and Mani, around Parga, Halkidiki and Pelion. They boast a large range of hotels and resorts that cater to the special demands of family vacations.
Leaving the hotel opens up another vast range of things to do. There are archaeological sites and museums, workshops where the kids can watch artisans demonstrating their crafts, kitchens where they can take cooking lessons, paths to exciting castles, fortresses, chapels and windmills. The family can also rent bikes, canoes or boats, to go exploring through the villages and around the islands. Kids of all ages love snorkelling and if they are slightly older they could learn to sail or water ski.
On your family holidays in Greece, everything is organised for you. The only thing you need to do is sit back and enjoy!
