Seaside digs on the Greek islands don’t come cheap, but this 3-star hotel offers real value for money.

Bang on Golden Beach, an expanse of powdery sand that’s very popular with windsurfers and families, the hotel has its own surf centre.

Spread across several floors and whitewashed buildings, rooms are pretty basic, but you’ll spend most of your time on the beach or in the water.

Like the homey welcome, the food at the restaurant is honest but tasty Greek fare at decent prices.

Please note - we hope to one day have live prices for you, but for now, here are some useful links for you to compare prices...

Fishing tours on the Regina

Fishing tours on the Regina

Aiki, Greek Islands, Greece[8.9 miles]

The Regina is a wooden kaiki (fishing boat) available for slow cruises from Aliki. The skipper, Dimitris Skiadas, comes from a long line of local fishermen and knows the Aegean inside out. You can try fishing using traditional nets, and grill your catch on board, or just snorkel around hidden coves and sea caves.

Best for ages: 8+ | £20 | 3-7 hours

Panagia Ekatontapiliani

Panagia Ekatontapiliani

Paros, Greek Islands, Greece[11.2 miles]

This huge church, whose name derives from the Greek for ‘100 entrances’, has architectural, artistic, and historic interest. Look out for the 11th-century frescoes and 4th-century sculptures taken from the temple of Demeter nearby. The Byzantine Museum on site has an interesting collection of icons and wood carvings.

Kiteboarding at Pounta Beach

Kiteboarding at Pounta Beach

Paros, Greek Islands, Greece[12.3 miles]

A wide, sandy beach on the narrow strait between Paros and Antiparos, Pounta is the island’s kitesurfing centre, thanks to the steady sideward winds. Even if you aren’t a kite boarder, it’s entertaining to watch the action from the comfort of a sunbed.

Best for ages: 13+ | £40 | 1-3 hours

Venetian castle of Naxos

Venetian castle of Naxos

Naxos, Greek Islands, Greece[16.6 miles]

Naxos was the capital of the 13th-century Venetian conquests in the Cyclades, and the Kastro fortifications bear witness to its importance. Gothic gates, cobbled narrow streets, Roman Catholic cathedrals, mansions with heraldic coats of arms, an Ursuline school (now the Archaeological museum) – are all still lived in.
