What to do – My Recommendations
Wine Tasting – Santorini
Being a romantic getaway, Santorini is the perfect place to try a few glasses of the island’s traditional wine. Exploring some of the quaintest wineries, you will get the opportunity to try signature wines such as Assyrtiko, Kykteri and Vinsanto. You can upgrade your experience to sample some of the local delicacies; learn how to cook the local dishes and choose the perfect wine to compliment.
Aquaworld Aquarium & Reptile Rescue Centre – Crete
If you love animals as much as I do, you’ll enjoy visiting Crete’s first aquarium. Located east of the islands capital, in the town of Hersonissos, Aquaworld Aquarium and Reptile Rescue Centre is an amazing place. Offering a home to animals that were rescued or injured, the centre encourages a hands on approach with turtles, lizards, snakes and marine life; it’s an excellent day out for all the family.
The Water Park – Rhodes/Faliraki
The Water Park 12Km outside of Rhodes town is the best park on the island. A variety of slides, roller-coasters and restaurants mean you can spend the whole day here exploring. From the extreme speed slides such as the Kamikaze to the peaceful Lazy River, The Water Park is a day out you’ll never forget.
