Greek islands in world’s 9 ideal destinations

According to recent estimates by Euromonitor, Greece enjoyed a bumper 2015

USA Today includes Greek islands among world’s best nine destinations for solo trips in 2016.

According to the American newspaper, now more than ever, solo travel is gaining popularity, as the travel industry has seen a steady increase in single travelers in recent years. According to a study by Visa, one in five travelers set out on their most recent vacation alone. Not only do these types of trips enable travelers to meet new people and gain some independence — they’re an ideal way to explore these nine exciting destinations in the upcoming year.

Especially on Greek Islands, the article comments that it’s no secret the Greek economy isn’t doing great, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from traveling there alone — just make sure to take a few extra steps before going solo.

Rich history of Athens

While Athens has rich history to offer and is a good home base, the islands offer a perfect solo beach escape where you’ll be able to meet people and island hop when you get bored. Luckily there are thousands of islands to explore with ferries and flights providing easy access between them. Don’t miss picturesque Santorini, famous party spot Mykonos, beach-riddled Zakynthos, historical Ithaca, under-rated Syros, and of course the biggest island, Crete.

How to meet people: Traveling solo around the Greek Islands can be tricky if you are looking for travel partners, especially if you’re island hopping from place to place. Although they can be pricey, a cruise can be your best option. Cunard offers single-occupancy cabins on their Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria ships; both have expeditions in the Greek Isles. P&O also offers a variety of options throughout the Eastern Mediterranean with single cabins available on most ships.
