Pick n mix your dream Ionian islands

If you are dreaming of an idyllic Greek island holiday look no further than the Ionian archipelago – and if you can’t decide on one destination why not swap to another island or hop again to make the most of your sunshine break? For lazy days and late nights the islands are the perfect pick ‘n’ mix!

Greece and the Greek islands are Olympic Holidays’ heartland and the Ionian islands are very much family favourites where warm, gentle waters wash golden sands and rocky coasts. Zante is the third largest of the islands with a vibrant capital, sleepy countryside and beaches galore which bathe in gloriously hot summers made comfortable by mild sea breezes. In the popular town of Tsivili there are tavernas along the shoreline creating a feel of traditional Greece as well as plenty of bars and restaurants for nights out on the town!

Laganas beach fills a sweeping bay, its shallow waters are perfect for swimming, and at each end of the beach Laganas and Kalamaki offer a heady blend of sunshine days and lively nights. For watersports, check out friendly Argassi, or for sheer loveliness, look south to Gerakas Beach.

If you find it hard to choose your favourite Ionian island from Zante, Kefalonia, Corfu, Paxos and Ithaca, island hopping is the answer!

Let Olympic Holidays’ expert team create a bespoke holiday – hop or swap islands and mix it up with stays at welcoming ‘come and go as you please’ studios with self-catering or B&B options to laid-back luxe or an all-inclusive resort with kids’ clubs, entertainment, sensational pools and watersports.
