Beaches in Mainland Greece
Greece is blessed with an array of stunning sandy beaches, each with its own unique charm. From hidden coves to expansive sandy stretches, whether you're looking for family-friendly shores, water sports opportunities, or simply a place to relax and soak up the sun, there's a beach here for every beachgoer.
Voidokilia Beach (Messinia): This crescent-shaped beach in the Peloponnese region is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Greece. Renowned for its white sand, clear waters, and secluded location, this is a must visit beach.
Simos Beach (Elafonisos): Simos Beach is actually a pair of stunning beaches, Megalos Simos and Mikros Simos, separated by a narrow strip of sand dunes. The turquoise waters, fine white sand, and shallow shoreline make it ideal for families and sunbathers. Surrounded by pristine nature, Simos Beach is a haven for those seeking tranquility and unspoiled beauty.
Kalogria Beach (Stoupa): With its soft, golden sand and shallow, calm waters, Kalogria is perfect for both swimming and snorkeling. Framed by lush greenery and overlooked by the imposing Mount Taygetos, this beach offers a perfect escape with easy access to amenities and waterfront tavernas.
Kalamata Beach (Bouka): Kalamata Beach, known locally as Bouka Beach, offers a more cosmopolitan atmosphere compared to some of the other beaches in the region. Its organised facilities, lively beach bars, and views of the Messinian Gulf make it a popular choice for both locals and visitors.
Plaka Beach (Leonidio): Plaka Beach in Leonidio is a hidden gem known for its dramatic cliffs and clear, emerald waters. It's a haven for rock climbers, as the beach is flanked by impressive limestone formations. The rugged beauty and peaceful ambiance make it a favourite among those seeking a more secluded beach experience.
Nightlife in Mainland Greece
When the sun sets, Greece comes alive. Along the coastline, beach bars and cafés beckon with seafront views, cool drinks, and the mellow sounds of the waves. Meanwhile, quaint tavernas and restaurants come to life, filling the air with the enticing aromas of Greek cuisine.
For those in search of a more electrifying experience, urban centres like Athens, Thessaloniki, and Patras boast a thriving nightclub scene with dance venues of all sizes playing a mix of beats.
Even better, in cities like Athens, ancient sites are illuminated after dark, creating a magical atmosphere and offering a unique opportunity to delve into the historical treasures of Greece in a whole new light.
Food and Drink in Mainland Greece
In Greece, culinary traditions run deep. Indulge in the iconic Moussaka, a layered masterpiece of aubergine, mince, and creamy béchamel sauce - the ultimate Greek comfort food.
Take to the streets and discover the allure of Souvlaki, marinated meats sizzling on skewers, wrapped in warm pita and adorned with fresh toppings.
To finish your meal, it has to be Baklava - layers of crisp, golden pastry filled with a luscious blend of honey and crushed nuts. Each bite is a symphony of textures and flavours - good luck stopping with just one.
From the sun-drenched slopes of the Peloponnese to the high-altitude vineyards of Northern Greece, each region imparts a unique terroir to the grapes that become the wines of Greece. Try the indigenous grape varieties - Assyrtiko which yields crisp, mineral-driven whites, or Agiorgitiko from Nemea, and Xinomavro from Naoussa both of which result in bold, robust reds.
Don't forget to sample local spirits like Ouzo or Tsipouro for a taste of Greece's spirited side.
