Greece for Teens
Greece is an incredible destination to travel with teens to. It has postcard perfect scenery, exciting ancient history and food that’s to die for. Every member of the family will easily have dream holiday here.
What teen doesn’t want to spend their holiday relaxing on glamorous white sand beaches? And Greece is one of the best destinations in the world for this. Teens will especially love Voidokillia Beach, an award-winning, pristine, sheltered cove with dazzling turquoise waters. From here your family can hike to ancient caves, ruins and one of Europe’s most important wetlands, Gialova Lagoon.
The best way to experience Greece’s world-famous beaches is by island hopping on your own private yacht. Sit back and relax as your captain leads your family to the most exclusive beaches that only the locals know about. We’re talking super Instagram-able glittering, bright waters surrounded by blankets of soft white sand, washed with sun. With your own personal charter, your family can be as flexible as you’d like. Each member of the family can choose to spend the day as they please, whether that be swimming, snorkeling, or simply sunbathing.
If your family prefers a little adventure during your beach time, we recommend spending the day sea kayaking around Mykonos in the sparkling waters of the Aegean Sea. This will give your family a whole new perspective of the island and allow you to escape the more crowded, touristy areas to secret coves and hidden beaches just waiting to be explored.
Though the unbelievable beaches are one of the main draws of Greece, the country’s alluring ancient history and culture is the real star. Teens will have a deeper understanding and appreciation for the myths, legends and history of the birthplace of Western civilization. A guide can make or break a tour, and we know the best, so your family will have the ultimate insider access.
Explore one of the world’s most recognized and celebrated monuments, the Acropolis, in Athens. Your private guide will lead you around the complex past the Parthenon and the temple of Athena Nike, detailing the intriguing legends, mythology and history behind the compound. After exploring fascinating sites and museums, your family can take a crash course in the ancient art of mosaic making. Drawing from the inspiring monuments and temples surrounding you, make your own replicas of original motifs discovered at archaeological sites.
After days spent discovering Greece’s captivating past you’ll work up quite an appetite, and Greece’s well known and delicious cuisine will satiate any palate. Whether your teen is a foodie or more of a junk foodie, Greece has a range of delicacies from salty feta cheese, pillowy flat breads with the perfect char and succulent roasted lamb to buttery desserts soaked in sticky honey and punctuated by fragrant nuts.
There are tons of tours and cooking classes to choose from depending on your tastes.Visit the market to pick the freshest ingredients, then head to a local home to learn a selection of Greek recipes, all tailored to your family’s preferences.
For adventurous cooks, you’ll have the chance to discover the tricks and techniques of the oldest bakery on Mykonos, explore an abandoned village outside of Santorini for a cheese and olive tasting, or head to a farm for a sampling of the freshest, natural products and traditional Greek delicacies. Sharing a good meal with your family is ingrained in Greek culture, so live like a local and smash a few plates along the way. Opa!
