ashworthacca said:Beach holidays everytime for me. Going to Stoupa in Greece in a few weeks, usually its the Greek Islands.My favourite is Lefkas/Lefkada.
In Mrch/April we usually have a week in Portugal, truly wonderful beaches.
good on you martin. We have a 40ft yacht berthed in vounaki which we use in june and september.. either side of the busy season. Sailing around lefkas, meganisi and kefalonia has to be the best way to spend time ever. Water is gorgeous. Can go anywhere that we want to even up to croatia or italy. Find deserted beaches and bays to go for a dip or sunbathe on deck or on the sand with some food. Then pull alongside at a taverna for a draft beer in a frozen glass, a greek salad, some tzatziki and a slow roasted joint of lamb... What in blue hell could be better?
For me.. Thats a beach holiday. Only i choose the beaches. I wouldnt even dream of going to somewhere like tenerife again. Last year i took my girlfriend to Parga which is on the Greek mainland, Ionian side about an hour north of Preveza airport. First week in June, nice and quiet but not deserted.Plenty of things to do, lovely little island in the middle of the bay to explore, boat trips out to paxos to see dolphins and caves. Big sandy beach, medium stoney beach and small secluded stoney beach. Great place and recommend to anybody
