Greece : Athens And The Islands - Travel Documentary

To the Rhythm of Bouzoukis
In addition to quite exceptional archaeological wealth, Athens is also a modern city. Proud of their beauty and a lifestyle protected, amongst other factors, by distance, the Greek islands each have their own personality. Crossing the Aegean sea, the film takes the viewer deep inside a lifestyle of exceptional quality. Brushing aside the clichés, Pierre Brouwers and his superb camerawork give a wonderful insight into eternal Greece, a fascinating backdrop to the country’s evolution into the modern era.
Geography of the islands. Economy. Population. Traditions. Everyday Life. Tourism.
ATHENS: the Ancient and Modern city. the Acropolis and major landmarks. Museum. Nightlife. Piraeus.
ISLANDS: Hydra. Poros. Aegina. Euboea. Mykonos. Ios. Santorini. Feast of Pentecost.

25 - Greek Islands: Cyclades Pt. I

Living the ultimate dream of island hopping the Aegean Sea. Since childhood I've always wished to be in Greece. But discovering the treasures of each island is the dream of all dreams. After spending two weeks in the mainland including two Ionian island, I set off from Rafina port and set off for my first island, andros.

Without doing too much research , I left my first island for surprise. I based myself in a cheap hotel in the beautiful sea town of Batsi. Here I enjoyed nice walked in blue and white, a nice swim at a nearby beach as well as a nice sunset swim in town. Although hitchhiking was a failed attempt in the mainland, the Greek island was the exact opposite as I was picked up by a friendly group of Greeks who brought me down to Ormous Korthiou. Here I walked over to a beach I booked marked called OLD WOMAN JUMP, a beautiful beach with an iconic pilar.

Directly south is my next island, Tinos. Tinos is an interesting island as its church, our lady of Tinos has an annual pilgrimage where people crawl from the sea up to the church. But aside from that as well as the beautiful villages I discovered above Tinos, my iconic memory in Tinos was the cheap Airbnb in the village of Arnados. For 60 dollars and two nights, I had an incredible view over half of the island and other Greek islands. With a home cooked meal and local wine, I had the view of a lifetime.

Onward to my next island and the final one in this video, I made my way over to Syros, an island I remember as having the most incredible port city, Ermoupoli. It's a Venetian city with beautiful colored buildings, a maze of walkways that hugs two steep hills overlooking the harbor and beyond. Here I also managed to hitchhike to the other end of the island to have lunch with newly made friends and enjoy a swim at a local beach. Here I took a nice quiet walk to the edge of the island, and realized, I made it.

Concluding this video, I set off for Serifos to continue my Aegean Sea voyage. :) cheers

Mykonos Greece, The BEST party Island! What to do

Follow us on Instagram -
All the gear we use -

Mykonos is one of the best greek islands to visit. It's filled with beautiful landscapes, idillic beaches, and a devilish nightlife.

When visiting Mykonos you have to visit the great Mykonos beach clubs. During our most recent visit, we went to Nammos and Scorpios which are the 2 hottest clubs on the island. Also, you have to visit Mykonos City Center or Mykonos old town. This is where all the famous white Mykonos Instagram photos are taken. The city has beauty like no other in the world. When deciding what to do in Mykonos, you have to plan for a slower day of travel than usual. Getting around the island can be a bit slower than other locations.

In our mykonos travel guide, we show you the best beach clubs, where to eat in mykonos, and how to have a great mykonos party during your vacation.

During our time, we stayed at the Utopia hotel which is part of the Mykonian collection. A group of 5-6 hotels that are ~30 mins from Mykonos town. It's great because you have access to so many pools and a private beach club, but the 30 min drive to the city can be annoying at times.

Thanks for watching! You guys rock :) - Scott & Collette

22 - Greek Islands: Corfu & Paxos

Enjoying my first days across Greece. Cliff jumping Corfu, time slowed down in Paxos, & beautiful beaches in Antipaxos.

The beginning of a long and amazing voyage across Greece, a dream come true. From Sarande, Albania, I caught a mid day ferry to the port town of Corfu of the island of the same name, Corfu, my first island. The first few hours of my arrival was spent walking around the former Venetian town and old fortress. Due to budget reasons and the fact that high season just started, cheap accommodation was only found in the north of the island near the town of Sidari.

After hitchhiking much of the Balkans, I figured why not try hitchhiking the island. I found myself catching rides over to Palaiokastritsa, a beautiful beach area with a small fortress. After a nice swim, I made it over to a local cliffside bar to jump from before making it back to Sidari's Canal d'amor to catch the sunset and take in the fact that I made it. :)

After a successful acceptance to stay with a couchsurfing host on Paxos island, I made my way down to my next island. Paxos is one of my favorite islands as it's the perfect place to slow down time and simply relax. I spent most of my time in the port Gaios, Loggos, and the sea town in the north Lakka. I also managed to take the short boat ride down to Voutoumi beach on Antipaxos, one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever swam in, cave hopping and soaking under the Ionian sun.

These island are the most perfect start to an amazinf two months in my dream country. From here, continues my voyage across north east Greece. :) Cheers

Kefalonia Island - The Best Beaches In Greece

In our opinion, Kefalonia island has the best beaches in Greece! From Myrtos to Assos to Platias, this island is truly blessed with beaches. But that's not all that there is to offer here! In this week's episode, we rent another car on Kefalonia and explore for a few days. We drive all the way around the island (except for the Southeast) and see many beautiful places including the Paliki Peninsula, Assos Town, Myrtos Beach, Fiskardo, Argostoli, Sklavos Winery and much more! We eat delicious greek food, swim in some of the most beautiful water we've ever seen, meet new friends and try new wines!

This island is famous for having some of the best beaches in Greece, and while we agree that there are some spectacular stretches of sand, it's really the raw nature and laid back vibe of Kefalonia that we loved.

This is definitely one of the best islands in Greece and we will return one day to explore some more! For now, check out what we've seen so far!

VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION:

We're at our second island here in Greece this is Kefalonia. We just picked up this little ride from ETAM KCG Travel here on the island, we're going to be ripping around, checking out this place. It's famous for it's rocky coastline, pristine beaches and tasty wine. It's one of the largest islands in the Ionian Island chain and also one of the largest islands in Greece, so we definitely need a car.

So in this episode we're exploring Kefalonia. Let's do it guys!

We just checked into our hotel, this is White Rocks on Kefalonia Island. Which we're so happy about because check out our view from our amazing room. This hotel is set on two breathtaking blue flag beaches and we have a view of them right from our room here. It's incredible so we're so happy to be here for four nights and wake up to this view every morning. So we're just going to drop off our bags and go explore Kefalonia.

We spent the afternoon hanging out at the beaches near our hotel, and then we came out to this place, this is Sto Psito Restaurant. We've been told that they serve up traditional food using local ingredients and we're excited to try Kefalonian wine and the specialties as well. Plus there are supposed to be amazing views from the sunset terrace. I can tell already that it's going to be gorgeous so let's get in there.

We're now in Argostoli which is the capital of Kefalonia. This city like many places in the south end of the island was rocked by an earth quake in the 1950s so it's been rebuilt, but there are still nice buildings like this church here behind us and there's a beautiful seafront promenade that runs for probably a couple of kilometers so we're going to go hit that up right now.

So it wasn't until 1864 that these Ionian Islands became a part of Greece, before that they were occupied by the French, The Russians, The Italians, The Turks, so they've basically had a really different history from the rest of Greece. So they have their own traditions which we're getting to witness here today because their wearing traditional clothing and they're dancing and having a parade to celebrate 1864 when they officially reunited with Greece.

We just drove about an hour from the capital to come all the way over here on the other side of the peninsula to this little place, this is called Petani Beach and it's gorgeous but it's super windy and super wavy right now so we won't be swimming, but we're going to chill out in this little tavern for now and have some lunch.

So we just finished up a tasty lunch on the beach and then we drove for another twennty minutes and now we're in the little town of Lixoury. We're on the Paliki Peninsula and there is hardly anybody here. The drive took us through a lot of undeveloped areas and now we're in this town and I don't see anyone around there's just a bunch of fishing boats and it's pretty cool. So now we're just going to walk around, explore the plaza, have a coffee and explore this little town a little bit.

another short little drive from Lixoury town brought us here, this is Xi Beach. The sand here is unique in that it's really rust color and kind of reddish and there's mud here that you're supposed to rub all over your body and it's like a spa treatment for your skin.

So we're going to walk along this sand for a little bit and then this afternoon we're supposed to go for a wine tasting, so we don't have very much time to hangout on Xi Beach here but we'll do a little stroll on the sand here and then hop back in the car.

Last night when we ate at that Tavern we had that Sklavos wine that I said we just loved and today we're going to meet Mr.Sklavos, we're at the Sklavos Vineyard and I think we're going to walk around the vineyard and maybe try some more of this delicious wine!

Lose yourself in Greece islands Kythira (Cythera)
Kythira (Cythera) is an island in Greece situated
opposite the south-eastern tip of the Peloponnese peninsula. It is one of the seven main Ionian Islands, although it is distant from the main group.
The island is located between the Greek mainland and Crete, and from ancient times until the mid 19th century was a crossroads of merchants, sailors, and conquerors. As such, it has had a long and varied history and has been influenced by many civilisations and cultures. This is reflected in its architecture (a blend of traditional, Aegean and Venetian elements), as well as the traditions and customs, influenced by centuries of coexistence of the Greek, Venetian, and Ottoman cultures.
Must see on Kythira ( famous tourist spots) :Church of Agios Georgios, the castle of Kythira, cave in islet Hytra, Melidoni beach, Kaladi beach, Paleopoli Beach, monastery of Panagia Myrtidiotissa, gold Icon of Panagia Myrtidiotissa, Church of Agia Despoina, winery in Martesakia (Pitsinianika), Fonisa waterfall at Mylopotamos Cythera, Katouni bridge (19th century)...

17. The Bluest water EVER | Sailing to Paxos and Corfu | Sailing the Greek Islands

This week we continue our adventures in the Ionian Islands as we head for Paxos and Corfu. We leave Meganisi and need to navigate the Lefkas Canal, this is the second canal we have conquered in weeks (after the Corinth Canal) and we enjoy the challenge. The canal is well signed and the bridge opens on the hour and we are lucky to make it.

The wind is light during our sail towards Paxos, 7 knots and we reach a constant 4 knots boat speed. We are fortunate we are in no rush and are happy to just be sailing. As we approach Paxos, a small bird joins the crew and is happy with the location. Paxos is beautiful, we see the bluest water we have ever seen and we spend days mesmerised and feel fortunate to have the bay to ourselves.

We move further north to Corfu and enjoy the 'city' life. Corfu is a vibrant metropolitan city and it's really nice as a contrast to the Cyclades during winter. The weather continually changes during the week and we spend the days finding different peaceful anchorages. We spend time in Ipsos, Stefanos and Kassiopi on Corfu Island and they are all pleasant anchorages for Kawai. This is the last stop in Greece, as we next head to Croatia. Follow our Journey

Please subscribe if you want to see more sailing videos, and if you liked the video please give it a thumbs up as this helps us. If you have a question please ask, we will always get back to you :)

About us:

Our names are Jason and Tracey and we traded our house, cars, business, job and security for freedom, adventure, travel and living simply amongst nature and the seas on our 45 foot Hanse 445 sailing boat, Kawai.

We don't know exactly where the winds will take us at this stage but over the next year we hope to sail to Turkey, Greece, Montenegro, Croatia, Italy, Spain, Morocco, Gibraltar, Canary Islands and then across the Atlantic Ocean.

Jase loves making travel videos and we decided to upload to youtube to share our adventure. We really hope you enjoy and feel free to drop us a comment any time to chat or subscribe to follow along :)
