the beauty of greece islands

Posted on December 15, 2007 by dorisch

Approaching the Greek Islands, whether on board a ship, train, or plane, your first impression will always be of mountains.

The mountains of Greece are rough and rugged; rocky not rounded and gentle like the Appalachian Mountains; wild, not snow-capped and majestic like the Alps. From afar, Greece appears harsh and unwelcoming. And perhaps, this is the reason why people today are drawn to its untamed landscape. What has defied ancient civilizations before from conquering the Greeks has become the very magnet that draws tourists in.



Well, Greece has plenty of beaches too. Being primarily a multi-island paradise, practically everywhere you go, you are bound to find a beach ranging from family-oriented, to all-inclusive, private, full-facility, remote (i.e., less than civilized), naturist, and full nudist. One of the best ways to explore the beaches is via the greece ferries.

You can book your greece ferry tickets online via Fantastic Greece as you plan your itinerary for your beach hopping experience. You can reach various islands and beaches by traveling in the greek ferries and personally, I have found Mykonos to an attractive place to visit.

As Greece’s playground, Mykonos is popular among jet set visitors. In fact, many Greek and international celebrities have their summer residences here. It’s not unusual to find many familiar faces you’ve seen in magazines and movies walking the roads and having dinner at small, street-side tables of a local Greek taverna.

Mykonos is one of the Cyclades, a group of islands on the Aegean Sea, which includes Tinos, Siros, Paros, and Naxos. A top tourism destination, it offers everything that a Greek Island paradise offers and more – crystalline waters, windsurfing, taverns complete with seaside views and loud music, and even full nudity.
