Ultimate Greek Island Hopping Guide
We all know that traveling on your own to magical destinations and partying like a real man is a privilege and a lifestyle that only an iconic man can experience! We gathered together the hottest destinations for your ultimate Greek Island hopping guide, so you can party, go out for drinks, lay on the beach and meet hot girls.
So one iconic destination for your next trip is Greece! Greece is one of the most beautiful destinations to visit once or I suggest more than once in your lifetime.
It is a colorful country in general, and has a natural beauty that it is rarely easy to find anywhere in Europe or even around the world, a unique beauty that whoever gets the chance to see it and experience this amazing country falls in love with it instantly.
Greece haves all kind of different landscapes, international and local cuisines to choose from, and its people, friendly and always with a warm smile to welcome you and help you.
If you do make it to Greece, I suggest you stay for couple of nights in Athens because from there the access to the islands is easier, quicker and cheaper and you can either get there by plane with daily charter flights or by boat. Get out and about and go out to see the capital, especially at night cause it’s a city that never sleeps and the city looks amazing at night anyways!
It's ideal, as the city offers a lot of activities for a man to see and to do! You can visit museum, art exhibitions, watch a basketball game, (the league has the best basketball teams in Europe even former NBA players play in few teams there), do some sports (water ski, jet ski, snowboard during winter), and of course, party until dawn in the country’s best bars and nightclubs!
After your get around in Athens I strongly suggest (start taking notes fellas!) to visit Mykonos! Yes! You heard right! Mykonos! The diamond of the Aegean sea and the most amazing cosmopolitan island that it is famous around the world for its beauty and the lifestyle.
Mykonos has been attracting people since the early 60’s and today, some very iconic celebrities. Onassis to start with, Marlon Brando, Liz Taylor, Tom Hanks, Lady Gaga, Gigi Hadid, Monica Bellucci, Giorgio Armani.
Of course, those people knew why they choose Mykonos and for a variety reasons! With the combination of white and blue, the island has one of the best beaches with deep blue turquoise combination of colors. Amongst the most popular are Super Paradise, Psarou, Ornos, Ftelia and Lia.
On these beaches you can find the best beach bars globally to party during the day and until dawn.
Santorini is really close to Mykonos, and it is part of the Cyclades islands complex in the Aegean sea. In my opinion it is the most romantic island destination you can stay on, with its unique colorful beaches overlooking the island’s volcano, to the most magical sunset you would ever witness in your whole life!
The combination of white and blue painted houses on the hill overlooking the island is one of the top reasons you would want to make your booking there.
The island has a wide range of choices even for the most demanding men, gourmet restaurants, luxury bars, as well as, prestigious hotels if you decide to stay in for the night.
Santorini has the most colorful beaches in the world, the sand colors you will find are, the Red beach, the locals call the beach red because the sand color has a combination of white and red sand stones due to the lava.
Another well known beach is Monolithos beach an all black colored sandy beach, Perivolos beach is another popular beach and personally one of my favorite beaches, make sure to get your sun tan also at Kamari beach, it is one of the most loved beaches (by the locals too).
Zakynthos it is well known for all its natural beauty, most travellers know it as Zante. This is an island where you can combine excellent local cuisine with golden sandy beaches and deep blue clear sea landscapes that only the Ionian sea has to offer.
On this island you can find a combination of peaceful and noisy atmospheres from crowded beaches, bars and restaurant to well hidden quiet ones.
One of the most famous beaches you gotta go to when in Zante is Laganas Bay (one of the most favorable as well as crowded) and it is under the board of the National Marine Park. I suggest to make a reservation in one of the local beach bars in advance so you can find a place for that sun tan.
Guys don’t forget to also go at Navagio Beach, probably one of the world’s famous beaches also known as Shipwreck beach and formally known as Agios Georgios.
Skiathos is another island located in the Aegean sea but in the north west side and it is partly in the archipelago of Sporades. On this island you can find an excellent and well balanced combination of clubs, bars, restaurants for the loud ones, and quiet beaches and tiny cafes for the quiet ones.
Make sure to navigate to any of the best beaches the island has to offer, among the most beautiful are Koukounaries, Banana Beach, Kanapitsa beach, Vasilias beach, Agistros beach and Kolios beach. All areas are packed with services, cool beach bars and restaurant so you can spend the day there.
Make sure you visit the old harbor and walk around the Papadiamanti street, and take a lot (I mean a lot of photos - we know you are gonna post them on Instagram) the town looks better at night and it is super romantic too if you are feeling like flirting.
An really picturesque island with all that natural beauty that you all gotta visit when island hopping in Greece.
Kos is an extremely small island with a lot of hidden beauty you will want to explore! The island is part of the Dodecanese islands complex and I strongly believe the most beautiful one!
The island’s landscape has influences from the Roman as well as the Greek empires in the early 15th century. If you walk around the old town and the harbor, make sure you pass by the ancient Agora (‘Agora’ is the greek name for ‘market’) and then start your drinks next to the sea.
Kos, one of Greece’s Dodecanese islands, is known for its abundant sandy beaches. It’s also rich with Greek and Roman landmarks, particularly in and around Kos Town.
The island’s must visit beaches (I promise you would be amazed, as I was!), are Paradise beach, Marmari beach (this beach is my favorite, loved every minute and the beach bar’s service was amazing), Agios Fokas beach (the locals call it Psalidi), Mastihari beach and Kardamena are the best beaches to spent your whole day ever.
