Places, People and Culinary Delights
When it comes to choosing destinations to visit, restaurants to dine at and experiences to engage in, good advice can be hard to come by. Sure, there are the obvious recommendations that will be nice, but chances are high these locations and restaurants will be crowded in summer.
Abeona is here to give you the secret tips and recommendations that are still harboured by the locals and Greece enthusiasts.
Explore the iconic islands of Santorini, Mykonos, and Naxos, known for their stunning sunsets, whitewashed buildings, vibrant nightlife, and beautiful beaches. While Santorini and Mykonos are popular destinations, you might also want to consider visiting lesser-known islands within the Cyclades.
Islands like Milos, Paros, and Naxos offer stunning landscapes, charming villages, and fewer crowds, allowing you to experience a more authentic side of the Cyclades.
Located in Pyrgos village, restaurant Selene offers a gourmet dining experience with a focus on modern Greek cuisine. Their innovative dishes highlight local ingredients and flavors, paired with an extensive wine selection.
Another, even more, secret tip is located in the fishing village of Pollonia. There, Medousa, a family-run restaurant known for its warm hospitality and seafood specialties, allows you to feast on fresh fish and seafood dishes while taking in the sea views.
While these restaurants offer memorable dining experiences, also consider exploring local tavernas and street food stalls, where you can savour traditional dishes like Greek salads made with local ingredients.
When it comes to the Dodecanese Islands, Rhodes with its medieval Old Town is a must-see. The Dodecanese Islands are blessed with picturesque coastlines and secluded coves. Consider that besides the most popular islands Rhodes and Kos, exploring lesser-known islands like Symi, Patmos, or Lipsi can offer a more tranquil and authentic Greek experience, with charming villages, pristine beaches, and rich cultural heritage.
Tucked away in a quiet corner of Patmos Town, To Kafeneio offers a cozy and authentic atmosphere for foodies. Sample their homemade dishes, including their mouthwatering moussaka and perfectly seasoned souvlaki, before you dig into their excellent desserts.
Experience the unspoiled beauty of Skiathos, Skopelos, and Alonissos, where pine forests meet crystal-clear waters, making it an ideal spot for nature lovers. Venture beyond the popular beaches of the Sporades islands to discover the true hidden gems.
For example, on Skiathos, seek out Lalaria Beach or nearby Tsougria Island for secluded and pristine shores. Take a boat tour or go scuba diving in the northern sporades marine park to witness the underwater wonders, including vibrant marine life, shipwrecks, and protected ecosystems.
Abeona recommends you to engage in a fine dining experience at the Kivo Art & Gourmet Hotel Restaurant, located near the town of Skopelos. Their menu features creative dishes made with local ingredients, accompanied by an extensive wine list.
