The 12 best party islands in Greece

Greece is one of the oldest countries and civilizations to exist. Yet, it has remained, even after all these years, as one of the most celebrated places. The luster that Greece offers combined with its rich history and vibrant nightlife is irreplaceable. The country has undoubtedly remained on the map as a top holiday destination for quite some time now.

Surprisingly, what sets it apart from other places is not the history it carries or the mythical tales of the gods that lived. But the vibrant nature, architecture, and the picturesque scenery it offers. More so, Greece offers a nightlife unlike any other country with its loud nightclubs, sailing clubs, and exciting yacht parties.

Here are the 12 best party islands in Greece:

Mykonos

Famously labeled as the Ibiza of Greece, Mykonos has the most enticing nightlife. The nightclubs offer wild parties where you may turn your shoulder to find someone famous beside you. It’s an island celebrated for its loudness where the music never stops, and the cocktails keep on coming.

Rhodes

Rhodes is an island that you are guaranteed to find crowded throughout the year. May it be summer or winter, partygoers in Rhodes Island are loyal to its multicultural and distinct theme. The nightlife is not limited to the nightclubs alone as the booze cruises take you on a trip to the sea while you dance the night away.  

Ios

Rhodes is an island that you are guaranteed to find crowded throughout the year. May it be summer or winter, partygoers in Rhodes Island are loyal to its multicultural and distinct theme. The nightlife is not limited to the nightclubs alone as the booze cruises take you for the party on the open sea. Or why not to throw your own party and go on a trip to the sea while you dance with your friends all the night away.  

Santorini

Santorini offers the best of both worlds with the variety in nightlife functions. On the one hand, you may find loud, electric nightclubs hosted by popular DJs and vibrant cocktails. On the other hand, you may relax by the pool of your hotel or open beaches as soft jazz music plays in the background.

Corfu

Listed amongst one of the top tourist destinations in Greece, Corfu has maintained a reputation as the party hub of the nation. Year after year, students from different parts of the world visit this glorious island for the lively parties and energetic nightlife it offers.

Kos

Whether you are someone who likes to groove to classical jazz or someone that sways to modern pop, Kos has something for everyone. An island with infinite choices but all equally spirited, Kos offers party-goers a destination unlike any other.

Paros

During its peak season, Paros Island is crowded with students from around the world. This not only guarantees a dynamic and flamboyant party culture but also assures a multicultural vibe. Be ready that the boat parties can take place at any time of day. The clothes for a boat party will be a bit different from the clothes you would wear for a normal party.

Zakynthos

An island that makes the whole party scene even better with themed nights, pool parties and get-together under the stars, Zakynthos is a must-visit. The party life offered at Zakynthos can range from a sophisticated gathering to a wild, electrical beach party, all depending on your preference.

Crete

With famous resorts like the resort of Malia and clubs including the Bikini Beach, Crete is just as huge a party hub as Mykonos. The turquoise waters, sandy beaches, and clear skies are a perfect recipe for a night you will never forget.

Thessaloniki

Though Thessaloniki may not be an island, its dynamic and stimulating party life can’t go without being mentioned. From live concerts to hardcore club nights, Thessaloniki really has it all.

Lefkada

A party scene distinct to the island of Lefkada with its secret beaches and deep forests, you will find plenty of places to host your party at. After all, what is better than a secret party filled with loud music in haunting and fiery places, such as the woods?

Paxos

It may be the smallest island in size, but in the amount of excitement and thrill it delivers, it’s certainly not short of anything. A lively social scene that is not confined to nightclubs but is widespread into the secret beaches and private yacht parties are what define Paxos the best.
