Hello everybody. I need some help planning my upcoming trip to Greece.
We’ll be flying to Athens on the 19th of July. Maybe spend a night in Athens and then head to the islands for 10 nights. We’re three 31 yr old straight guys looking to do some serious partying and some diving, in that order of priority. In between we’d like to maybe relax a bit, enjoy the sights and culture. This is very similar to Britta’s recent post so maybe repetitive, except that we need to have access to some very good diving at least 3 days out of the 10 days we have. One of us is an advanced diver.
So far we’ve only decided on Mykonos where we want to spend 4 nights. I’ve heard that any more than that and we’ll be broke! Mykonos will be our last stop before we head back to Athens. We were thinking we should visit 3 islands in all. So we still need to decide on 2 more islands where we can spend 3 nights each. We thought maybe Santorini could be one. But we’re not sure. And the 3rd island? We are having a hard time narrowing it down. Any suggestions would be hugely appreciated! We don’t have to necessarily be in the Cyclades either as long as it is worth the travel and we get some good nightlife and some good diving options during the day. Keep in mind we’re 31 and not exactly looking for a scene that has only college kids.
Also, if anybody has suggestions on accommodation in these places, that would be great! We’d rather be in a reasonably priced apartment than a hotel room.
