Greek summer – the must-see in the Mediterranean Sea
Greece is a small country located on the south-eastern border of Europe, between Italy and Turkey. Besides its impressive history, the country is famous for its islands. From the beginning of May to the end of September, the weather in Greece is perfect for swimming. Tourists from very cold climates who cannot stand hot weather prefer to visit Greece in April and October. In winter, the islands are not an attraction for Greece and other destinations like Pelion and Kalavryta can offer pleasant experiences for those who love winter sports.

The Ionian Sea lies in the west of Greece and has 7 charming islands. The waters are deep and calm all summer. The islands are green and full of trees. To understand the seabed of a place, you have to look at the geography of the mountains. The higher the mountains, the deeper the sea. In other words, the sea is a reflection, something like a mirror that shows them the exact opposite of what the land looks like. The deep waters of the Ionian Sea also allow boats to navigate without the risk of crashing into their lower part. So sailing in the Ionian Sea is ideal. It is also pleasant for catamarans who need calm waters to provide a luxurious experience for the tourist.
The beaches here are similar to those in Croatia, but the waters are warmer, which is a huge plus that enhances the vacation experience. The prices are also more affordable and the quality of the service you will get is better. For many years Italians lived in these islands, so the architecture is influenced by the Roman style. Due to its proximity to Italy, it has many Italian and European tourists in general. The nightlife is not very wild, but the natural beauty is superior. Corfu, Lefkada, Kefalonia and Ithaca, the homeland of Odysseus, are perhaps the best choices.
The aegean sea
The Aegean Sea stretches between Greece and Turkey. The most famous part is a group of islands called “Cyclades”. These islands are the most typical sight of Greece. The landscape here is very dry and the islands have very little vegetation. They have small white houses very close to each other with rounded corners to protect themselves from the wind. The area is of course beautiful, but if you decide to visit the Aegean, make sure you don’t do it in August and late July. During this period a phenomenon called “Meltemia” gives very strong winds and rippling waters. Whether you live in a hotel or sail with a boat, you will have a hard time swimming and having fun.
As a tourist there is a lot to see there. The town of each island is called “Chora” and is located in the center of the island. The cities did not have a built-in port to avoid pirate attacks. Even though the waters are not as impressive as in other places, the Aegean Sea is the most famous and it attracts tourists from all over the world.
People traveling from the United States as well as the Middle East are unfamiliar with the hidden gems of the Ionian Sea, so they spend virtually most of their time in Greece in the Cyclades and Athens. The popular islands of Mykonos and Santorini are here and it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that they are super touristy. If you want to experience glamor and have a really big budget, you can try these islands, however, we cannot guarantee that you will be happy with the level of service provided.
