Greece

where is the best to go for a nice beach, nightlife and romantic views?

Hi all, I have never been to Greece and in this September me and my boyfriend are going for our anniversary. We are looking for something romantic, beautiful views and SAND beach....We are 25 and 32 years old and would also like to enjoy some night life....At the same time we would like to see some historical parts that aren't too far. Where would u recommend us to go? which island? resort? what offers the best combination of sightseeing, nice beaches and night life? Many thanks in advance!

If you go to Samos you can enjoy the beaches and nightlife as well as have easy daily access to Ephesus in Turkey for your historical exploration.

I would recommend Naxos Island

Its a few hours by ferry from Athens (Piraeus port)

We really loved the island, and hired a little car to explore the coast and inland- its really lovely

Be a bit more specific please... DIY or package? Where from? For how long? What kind of accommodation? Is hiring a car an issue? Direct flights to final destination or willing for some bus/car/ferry ride to reach it? Is budget an issue?

I suggest Rhodes Island, it has a bit of everything. September is not high season, although all resorts and facilities are still open. Do not book a place, so that you can find what is the best for you. There is not any risk, you shall find a lot of free accommodation, and better prices, instead of booking in advance.

thank you for your time and help! we were actually considering Santorini but having doubts as many people say there are a lot of rocks on the beach......:-S

thank you for your interest :-) we were thinking of getting a package, flying very likely from Geneva or Lyon....The budget is not fixed, but around 700-1000 euros per person incl. flights. We would be going for 9-12 days, thinking of going out twice, spending two days on sight-seeing and the rest - beach!

Santorini is beautiful- exquisite. But the beaches have volcanic pebbles, and not pleasant for sunbathing or relaxing on. Good for a walk though.

Be advised that the Red Beach in Akrotiri on Santorini is closed now because of a dangerous rockslide and the possibility of more to come.

Milos will be fine for your needs, (rent a scooter)
Santorini is a life time memorable , (easy with public transportation but always a bike is must)
Mykonos is a romantic also clubbing -day and night- island (rent a scooter)
Enjoy a nice and safe trip!

I think there is no point suggesting places, then find out there is no package from Geneva or Lyon.I think a better approach is to work the other way around. Check what packages are available within your budget, then list them here and people would be happy to offer advice and help you narrow it down.
To be honest, I doubt you have many options (if any) from those airports though...
