- Greek Islands All inclusive holidays
The Greek Islands vary in size considerably, but together they share a massive 16,000 km of coastline - that's 16 million metres of shore to explore - and this alone explains why all-inclusive holidays to the Greek Islands are so popular with sun-worshippers, as there's a lifetime of beaches and cliff walks to explore. The beaches alone offer a diversity of landscapes, some with dark volcanic sand, others with pebbles and boulders, and still more with a backdrop of grassy-topped dunes once you step away from the water's edge.
Where to go all-inclusive?
Different estimates indicate that there are 6,000 different land masses in the Greek Islands, of which more than 200 are inhabited by a permanent population. Crete and Rhodes are two of the biggest, and are also two of the main markets for cheap all-inclusive Greek Islands holidays, so consider putting these near the top of your list if you're not sure where to try first. The larger island groupings are in the Ionian and Aegean Seas, whereas the land dotted around the coast of mainland Greece itself tends to be in the form of much smaller islets, of which there are about ten just off the mainland shore.
Savour the summer breeze
While there are many different microclimates that can make all-inclusive holidays in the Greek Islands feel very different from one another, there is one common thread that may appear throughout the summer. The Meltemi might have a hot-sounding name, but it is actually a cool air current, and as it blows across the islands it can take the edge off of the hottest days. This might not be welcomed by everyone, but it will bring some relief for many holidaymakers who need some respite from the heat of the summer sun.
Staying cool while all-inclusive
If the Meltemi doesn't arrive during your stay, there are plenty of ways to stay cool on cheap all-inclusive holidays in the Greek Islands. Your hotel or resort is likely to be designed so that you don't have any reason to leave - and that probably means a pleasant outdoor pool to take a dip in. The price you pay for your ticket will generally include refreshments whenever you want them too, and especially if you just need to cool off, then non-alcoholic beverages should be in ready supply, so just ask at the poolside bar to see what you can get served.
