Visiting Greece in April can come with many benefits. Since it’s off-season, you can take advantage of discounted rates from many hotels and activities. Best of all, the beaches and tourist attractions are less crowded, allowing you to enjoy utmost serenity and finally, that much-needed break.
When planning your trip to Greece, you need to think about where you should go. If you need help with this, here are some of the best places to visit in Greece in April.
Famed for its magnificent stretches of crystal-clear waters and vibrant nightlife, Kos is a must-visit on your trip to Greece. When visiting Kos in April, you can have some fun times at the beach, but the sea might still be quite cold at this time. Nevertheless, you can do many other fun activities on the island other than frolicking at the beach. Enjoy scenic strolls in the main town and learn about the island’s history through its ancient architecture dating back to the Byzantine period. Treat yourself to some retail therapy and go souvenir shopping at the handful of shops scattered all over town.
April is one of the best times of the year to visit Athens. It’s the spring season, and the city looks magical, with poppies and daisies blooming all over the neighbourhoods. The warm and sunny weather makes it ideal for sightseeing. Best of all, there will be fewer crowds of tourists at the city’s top attractions, such as the Parthenon and The Acropolis Museum. There are many things to do in Athens in April, but the best way to jumpstart your trip is to explore its charming streets. Visit parks and gardens to admire the city in full bloom.
Kefalonia is the largest island in the Ionian and one of Greece’s most beautiful islands to visit. While you may have already seen Kefalonia on pictures and postcards, the reality is way better than any capture. Like all Greek Islands, Kefalonia is home to beautiful beaches. And if you come here in April, you can enjoy warm to hot temperatures, and you can even have the entire beach to yourself since tourists won’t be coming just yet. To make the most of your visit, stay in a beautiful Kefalonia villa with views overlooking the Ionian Sea.
Formed over three thousand years ago due to a volcanic eruption, Santorini is the remains of the rim of a volcanic crater, known as the “caldera”. As the most popular of all Greek Islands, your trip to Greece in April won’t be complete without making a stop at this stunning island. There are many things you can do in Santorini but taking a tour of the island should be on top of your itinerary. Stroll through whitewashed villages overlooking the sea and visit beaches made up of black lava pebbles.
Paros may not be as popular as Santorini and the other islands in Greece, but it has plenty to offer for all kinds of tourists. Located in the heart of the Cyclades and can be reached by ferry from Athens, Paros is home to beautiful beaches, vibrant nightlife, and ancient monuments. While in Paros, check out the traditional fishing village of Naousa, which has one of the most beautiful ports in Greece, and try windsurfing at the Golden Beach.
