Post-Summer Getaways in Greece

Post-Summer Getaways in Greece For those unaware, post-summer is a great time to explore Greece. September and October are really the best months to visit.

For those who may not be aware, post-summer is a great time to explore Greece and experience it at its prime. September and October are actually the best months to visit. The sea is warmer having soaked the heat of the peak summer. The winds are mellow, allowing for fantastic sailing conditions. And the crowds have subsided.

It is also a time when most kids have begun school so it’s a great opportunity for parents to ‘steal’ some alone time. Alternatively, if the kids are joining you on your post-summer getaway in Greece, here are two suggestions covering both these needs.

 

Getaway no. 1: The serene town retreat of Porto Heli awaits

Within a two-hour drive from Athens lies the perfect setting for family holidays in the Peloponnese: Porto Heli. A beautiful place situated on a gulf with views onto the island of Spetses, especially magnificent if you choose to stay in Hinitsa bay.

Getaway no. 2: The adventurous Aegean is calling

Post-summer is also the best time to explore a handful of the most popular Greek islands, in one go! There is nothing like crossing the smooth Aegean sea, going from harbor to harbor. Hop from island to island, and fill your mind with the fascinating visuals of whimsical shorelines. Experience caves, crevices, and coves only visible at sea. Add some impressive pristine beaches with waters so crystal clear you won’t be able to resist a dip.
