Sailing Holidays In Greece

Greece is a nation famous for its nightlife, with parties often running until daybreak. The action warms up with bars and cafes which, contrary to their European counterparts, offer more than just coffee, with alcohol and music running freely until late closing.

From there, the party moves onto the wide selection of clubs that are a fixture in any large Greek town. And with every taste catered for, whether it’s hip hop, techno or Europop, no visitor will be left disappointed.

Just about every city and every island in Greece has a night scene of note, so wherever a Greece sailing holiday takes you, you will be able to party it up in style. At the forefront of these clubbing meccas are the islands of Rhodes, Kos and Santorini.


Lying in the east Aegean Sea, Rhodes is one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations. While its Medieval Old Town draws thousands of culture seekers each year, it is a different kind of culture that the island is most famous for. Faliraki is the island’s major seaside resort, with five kilometres of sandy beach lined with restaurants, bars, cafes and clubs. As the sun goes down, the streets come to life with revellers and music of every type, giving Faliraki a unique atmosphere that is all its own.


Kos is another must-see. As well as almost 300 kilometres of stunning coastline, the nightlife is second to none. Kos town is the cultural and tourism centre on the island, offering a more sophisticated side to proceedings, with restaurants and cocktail bars balancing out the debauchery of ‘bar street’. Meanwhile, nearby Kardemena, with its heady array of bars, discos and clubs, is the place to go for all out partying.


Santorini may evoke images of picturesque villages and traditional cobbled streets, but there is much more than that to the Aegean island! Offering clubbing with a twist in keeping with the strict noise laws in place, many nightspots are tucked away – built into Santorini’s famous cave houses. The island also has a number of beach bars that, day or night, offer a fun mix of clubbing with more traditional beach activities!
