Best Low Budget Summer Destinations In Greece
Greece’s busy season is quickly approaching and the word ‘holiday’ comes to a lot minds. The Greek Islands are perfect for a summer holiday, but if you rather not break the bank, here’s a list of the best low budget destinations!

The Small Eastern Cyclades
Great for nature lovers with amazing beaches and it’s not too crowded! These islands have something for everyone with crystal clear water, caves, and even an old pirate haven! The small cyclades include Pano and Kato Koufonissi, Donoussa, Iraklia, and Schinoussa. All have regular ferry connections with Naxos, Amorgos, and Piraeus.

Kythira in the Ionian Islands
Tourism has not reached its peak just yet on this island so its still quiet. Visitors can walk through traditional villages, the medieval castle of Hora, and then enjoy the pristine beaches. No plan is necessary here and it’s best to just explore.

Serifos in the Cyclades
With only 1,400 people living on the island, there’s still plenty to do here! The main attractions are the white Hora and the white chapels among the Venetian castle. The sites to see are the small swimming bays for a swim, the Taxiarches Monastery, the Byzantine Church of the Panagia, the Cyclops cave, and more!

Astypalaia in the Dodecanese
Yet another island with beautiful beaches and clear waters. Also worth a visit here is to see the Venetian castle and the Monastery of Agios Ioannis.

Parga in Epirus
Not as quiet as some of the other islands mentioned, but picturesque nonetheless. The most popular beaches are Platys Gialos tou Valtou and Necromandeio at Acheroussia.
