Haven’t made your plans yet? Scary articles and misleading coverage of Greece make you have second thoughts? Take a moment to see for yourself great value at a great price. Greece is a living paradise all year long, especially when it comes to its islands.
While most people go away in June, July and August, a trip to the Greek islands is actually a great destination in September and October. With the weather still mild and warm, you can enjoy the azure waters away from the crowds and in a more budget-friendly manner.
Not only are flights cheaper and easier to reserve in the off-season, but accommodation and ferry tickets often are, too. Many cruise lines also offer special discounts in September, and there are many worthwhile events to attend, and other attractions.
Besides the Halkidiki peninsula and the islands of Samothraki and Thassos, most of the Greek islands are perfect to visit during off-season and will still cater to tourists. Each island has something special to offer: Ios, Mykonos, Santorini, Paros, Naxos, Crete, Delos, Corfu, Rhodes and Skiathos are definitely among the most loved ones.
