Why the greek islands are the best choice as a holiday destination this year

 I love the Greek islands; the food, the weather and the people. Having visited three now (although I'm not too sure Zakynthos counts!) it's definitely a high contender for future summer holidays. My first trip to the Greek islands was to Zakynthos in 2012, in 2015 I visited Kefalonia and in 2016 we headed to Lindos in Rhodes. On each of my holidays to Greece, I've fallen in love with the country - the weather has always been glorious, the people are always friendly and the views are some of the best I've seen.

The weather in Greece is pretty much always glorious in the summer. It is roasting hot, with balmy evenings perfect for strolling through pretty streets. It's exactly the kind of weather you want when you think of escaping the UK! The Greek islands are the perfect place to relax and get that all important vitamin D. When we go to Greece it is to escape the 9-5 and it is the best place to sit by a pool all day reading and playing cards. We often take boat trips whilst in Greece too and I've seen both turtles and dolphins whilst on the trips which was pretty incredible. It's amazing to see wild life in the sea.

Possibly my favourite thing about Greece though is the food. Beautiful pitta bread with refreshing and delicious tzatziki is the perfect starter, especially if you're eating on a rooftop, my favourite kind of restaurant. With plenty of choice, even a fussy eater like me enjoys Greek food. I've had some of the meatballs I've ever had in Greece, and Chicken Souvlaki which is easily one of my favourite dishes.

The Greek islands truly are one of the most stunning places I've seen. From beautifully clear sea, to stunning mountain landscapes, it truly is flawless and a lovely place to spend your summer holiday. There's plenty to see, from gorgeous seaside towns to ruins and beaches. The people are also very friendly too, which is always nice when you've gone away for your holiday. I can't wait for my next visit to the Greek islands, I've been eyeing up Santorini for years, and would love to visit mainland Greece too - especially Athens.

Have you been to the Greek islands?
