There are so many stunningly beautiful Greek Islands to escape to perhaps the hardest decision is which one to choose! Let us take you on a journey to some of our handpicked favourites to help you make up your mind.

If your idea of a holiday to a Greek island is one where time stands still, then look no further than Meganisi. With its tranquil beaches, steep cliffs honeycombed with caves and a population of less than 2,000, Meganisi is one of the most picturesque and peaceful islands in the lonian.

If you prefer something a touch livelier then perhaps Paxos is for you. Equally as restful a holiday paradise as Meganisi, Paxos looks and feels like one big, lush, olive grove. It is a Greek island in miniature, with some fabulous walking routes.

These off-the-beaten track locations are just two of the many destinations offered by Traveltime’s partner for the lonian and Aegean islands. Our partner, an independent holiday company, specialises in great-value holidays to the Greek islands and has been named Best Tour Operator to Hellenic Europe at the British Travel Awards for three years running as well as Runner Up in the Telegraph Awards for ‘Favourite Specialist Tour Operator’ category 2013.
