I am trying to figure out the best Greek island to visit for a girl trip with a group of my girlfriends. We love wine tasting, nightlife, beaches, shopping, and enjoying some of the culture of Greece. I have a feeling we'll need a place that has a lot of variety. As the group will be larger, we also need to have the location to have a lot of things going on that we can walk to, especially if we can walk to go out to eat or grab drinks somewhere. As far as I know, we don't plan to rent a car (unless we really have to). What do you guys think?

I have also heard great things about Halkidiki and the variety of things you can do. Crete also seems like a great place for what you are looking for.

The island of Zakynthos, lying on the Ionian Sea, is undoubtedly one of the most popular islands among tourists. With azure waters, beautiful beaches and plenty of resorts to choose from, this island seduces most who dream of sweet laziness in the sun's heat. Attractions include Keri, a small town where you can see the giant Greek flag in the world and the most beautiful sunsets on the island. There is also Kalamaki, a small resort, which is very easy to get to from the airport, which is of great interest. These places are much more interesting than California, where I live. Here almost every town has a safety index is 94. I think you like the Greek islands as much as I do.

Naxiots once made considerable fortunes exporting potatoes, cheese, marble and emery. Agios Prokopios and Agia Anna delight toddlers and teenagers alike with their shallow waters and beach bars. As you head south, the beaches get wilder: Plaka, where you can gallop across the dunes on horseback, Mikri Vigla for windsurfing and kitesurfing, and crystal-clear Kastraki.

Should you tire of frolicking on the shore, three supersized kouros statues are hidden in the hills and there are dozens of drowsy villages to explore. Try kitron, the local citron liqueur, at the Vallindras distillery in Halki or sample homemade wine and arseniko cheese under the plane trees in Ano Potamia village. No wonder Herodotus described Naxos as 'the happiest of islands'.

Where to stay in Naxos: Kavos is a low-key complex of boxy white villas, set among bright bursts of bougainvillaea, geraniums, and roses, above Agios Prokopios beach.
 

Greece Sets Developing Wedding, Luxury Tourism as Priority

Where in Mykonos is this?

I bumped into a pretty pic of Mykonos - I am still trying to plan that trip with my friends! We are still considering Mykonos, even though some people are iffy. I found this pic - it's so pretty. Does anyone have an idea where this is, and what the vantage point is? One friend is saying she would love to try to replicate the scene from this photo if we do make it to that island...

Best place for fresh seafood in Greece?

One of the things I love about Greece is the abundance of fresh seafood. What is your favorite destination for enjoying seafood? I know that any coastal area of Greece will have only he best, but I didn't know if you had some standout places. I love heading down to the shore as the fishing boats come in and watching people select what they want. One time, I asked if any of them were restaurant owners and I went afterwards to enjoy a great meal there.
