#GREEKISLANDS

Welcome to OUTstanding Greece! A beautiful and lively southeast European and  Mediterranean country that is not only full of rich and monumental history but also has a very ancient and unique culture that we all are affected by and adopted from in our own cultures and life, and of course the birthplace of Democracy. There are thousands of islands spread out throughout the Ionian and Aegean seas, each one with a breathtaking view, unique location and a potential to get closer to heavenly views! 

Kos
One of the most eastern islands of Greece, off the Anatolian coast of turkey, is a beautiful island and one of the Dodecanese islands of Greece. Like Greece’s rich history, you may find on this island many Greek and Roman landmarks and ruins, and since it is a harbor town, you won’t be able to miss the 15th century Neratzia castle. The island is also filled with beautiful villas with breathtaking mosaics, shrines and columns. It is also believed to be the birthplace of Hippocrates therefore it is also called the island of Hippocrates . Without a doubt the island is filled with beautiful beaches, the city of Kos itself has numerous day trip locations such as the Bodrum. Of course the food is eclectic and authentic to the Greek culture, however because of the rise of tourism in the 1970s, you will be able to find many lavish restaurants, hotels, and a vibrant night life. What a perfect and magical place!
 
Mykonos
Were sure you’ve heard of Mykonos , a small island in the Cyclades group of islands in the Aegean Sea, for it’s lavish summer party destinations, clubs and beaches. Along some of the calmer places in Mykonos, you won’t be able to miss out the huge dance clubs that bring DJs from all around the world, the late parties and the day parties as well. It is Greece’s most famous cosmopolitan island where there’s always a party to go to, a lavish restaurant to eat at and hit some of the shops and boutiques along the shore. it is believed in Greek mythology that Mykonos is made up of petrified giant’s bodies killed by Hercules, and probably named after Apollo’s grandson, Mykonos. But hey, as beautiful as the history and mythology of basically any Greek island or city is, this is where you can mingle with all type of people, from celebrities (hi Lindsey Lohan!) to your everyday families and young travelers. It is of course gay friendly and a great gay destination to party up and unwind. Important to mention that the XLsior festival , a huge gay festival that will be celebrating 10 years this year will be taking place in Mykonos . (More about the festival below)

Santorini
Another small island in the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea, once ruined by a volcano in the 16th century, is now shaped ruggedly, however, the whitewashed, cubic houses that cover the island on both it’s principal towns of Fira and Oia, are a true spectacular view and experience . The sunsets from this island are something that you cannot miss, and the architecture that is world renowned and recognized for its whitewashed houses and stacked up all the way to the top of the hill. Just imagine spending a few days in one of these little romantic houses, a pool, and a view of the Aegean Sea that stretches as far as the eye can see and beautiful beaches with reddish and dark sands. A very romantic destination for you and your partner !
Rhodes
Rhodes is the largest island in the Dodecanese islands of Greece, located south east of the mainland and Athens. A total population of over 50,000, it has anything you need and want to see. Most importantly, Rhodes is the home of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the colossus of Rhodes. Besides that, Rhodes is packed with ancient ruins, archeological sites and museums that you must visit and a very interesting and breathtaking views .

Rhodes has over 500 hotels, a great nightlife for all communities, amazing variety of bars, clubs, restaurants that serve you Greek culture on a plate and of course great cheap and expensive places to shop! A must visit on your next gaycation!
 
Crete
The largest and most populous of the Greek islands , lies about 100 miles south of the mainland, and is the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. As for the history and culture of this island, it dates back to the Paleolithic age, and housed many lost civilizations such as the Minoans and Mycenaean civilization. The rich history of this island is visible and felt throughout the island, and definitely recommended to stay there for about a week or more in order to really suck in all the culture and see as much of the archeological sites as possible. Besides the beautiful culture, the beaches and the resorts are absolutely breathtaking, including Spinalonga , the largest natural palm forest in Europe . In Crete you will find all types of people from all over Europe , mainly, due to it’s great tourist attractions and great accessibility to all locations. Such a great island for all people, all types and of course gay friendly!
 
Athens
The heart and soul of ancient and modern Greece, the beautiful capital , Athens, is definitely a city you won’t be able to miss. Athens is a beautiful depiction of the ancient world with many landmarks from the 5th century BC , the monumental Acropolis, the Parthenon , the temple of Zeus ,the ancient agora of Athens and many more beautiful and ancient structures from the ancient civilization. There are also many museums that you may visit, of course the acropolis museum on the top of the list. It’s truly a trip back in time. The area names Plaka is probably the one that you might hear about right away upon arrival, it’s filled with hotels, ritzy restaurants, artisan shops and so on.

Even though Athens is not an island, it is obvious that before you hit the islands you must go through the beautiful capital and stay in the lavish and boutique hotels, with beautiful interior designs and breathtaking views and of course a colorful and welcoming culture!
