Ionian Islands

Navagio (Shipwreck )  By elkost FLICKRCCIonian Islands

With relatively fewer resorts and less tourism this is some of the picture postcard islands with the blue waters that straddle the Greek border with Turkey. Some of the more notable islands are Corfu, Paxos, Levkas, Ithaka, Kefalonia, and Zakinthos. While the unique climate receives more rain than some of the other Greek islands, this does result in a pretty landscape if forested groves and valleys set upon the blue seas.

The islands are large and don't make for easy day trips because of the distances in between them. then perhaps it's best to choose one or two islands on great beaches and settle in for a fantastic crowd-less vacation.

The Greek economic problems influence on vacations

Staying sensitive to the issue and checking travel conditions before you leave a prerequisites we would advise for any overseas trip and Greece is not any exception here. You will get a good deal but the economic conditions are not an open invitation to squeeze the last drop of value out of your vacation. Even some hotels and restaurants have closed and public transport strikes may need planning around. But All in all you can expect the situation to stabilise or improve because the creditors to really want Greece to pay back their loans and your tourist dollars can help.
