Best Family-Friendly Destinations to Visit in the Greek Islands

Best Family-Friendly Destinations to Visit in the Greek Islands

Greece has thousands of islands, although only around 200 are inhabited. Among this latter number, many have a well-deserved reputation for offering stellar family holidays. Here are some of the best.

  1. Cephalonia

    Many of Cephalonia's beaches are ideal for young children or non-swimmers. Assos, Skala, and Vatsa are just some to try. Teenagers might appreciate Antisamos for its water sports and beach bars. The aqua park at Lixouri​ is popular with children of all ages, while parents could add a dose of culture via some of the organised activities at the Botanical Gardens.

  2. Crete

    Crete's size gives it an unparalleled choice of beaches. Agia Pelagia​ is one of the best for small children, while the pink sands of Elafonisi​ are unmissable. Older children might appreciate sea kayaking and a visit to Samariá Gorge​ or the Dikteon Caves​. The Minoan Palace at Knossos is a fascinating place to explore, and a trip out from Chania in a glass-bottomed boat provides a new perspective on the island's sea life.

  3. Corfu

    Famed for its sandy beaches, your family has plenty of choice on Corfu. Dassia Bay​ is great for all ages, thanks to its shallow waters and plentiful water sports. Corfu Old Town offers an abundance of museums, churches, and interesting architecture for a cultured day out. Fans of Gerald Durrell's "My Family and Other Animals" can enjoy visiting some of the places, such as Mouse Island, that are mentioned in the book, while two water parks offer a different sort of day out.

  4. Rhodes

    The island's east coast has many sandy beaches, and Lindos is one of the best. Rhodes also has a large aquarium, an aqua park, and a petting zoo that is famous for its ostriches. The medieval town of Rhodes is a UNESCO World Heritage site and Europe's oldest inhabited medieval city.

  5. Skiathos

    With its shady spots and sandy beach, the shallow waters of Troulos are perfect for young children, and parents will appreciate the proximity of both a taverna and a small supermarket. Agia Paraskevi​ is another sandy beach that is great for older children thanks to its water sports. Meanwhile, keep your children entertained while enjoying meals in Skiathos Town by encouraging them to watch out for aeroplanes coming into land at the nearby airport. Day trips to nearby Skopelos, the location for the first Mamma Mia film, are popular.
