Hi all,

First post since I used to do this on VT.

We have two families with young kids going to Greece for a week in June. I have a shopping list of requirements that I have not been able to put together from my research. Hopefully one of you can come up with a suggestion or two.

All Inclusive resort (ya, pains me to write that on this website)
Somewhere in Greece on a coast
Somewhere where we can break out of the confinement and take trips to visit ruins or interesting towns that are somewhat close by.
4-5 Star with kid-stuff to entertain them.
Nice beach with clear blue water and good watersports (snorkling!) a big plus.

I wont rule out Crete either. I just do not know much about Crete or really anywhere in Greece.

Anyone have anything for me?

Thanks so much.

Rich.

Not sure about the All Inclusive bit but Skiathos fits the bill in regard to the rest. And I'm sure there is an a/i Resort on there now too. You can sit on the beach and watch the planes land over your head!

Check Kos Island. Plenty of AI options around. Try to check location carefully, maybe Tingaki or the resorts on Lampi beach or Psalidi, but not the ones far away.

To be honest, as an indepentent traveler, Kos is not my favorite island, exactly due to all those commercialized large AI complexes. But it is a very family friendly island which offers great tourism infrastructure. There is a very good bus network on the island, a tout-tout tourist train and even a small bike lane network (a rarity in Greece). Plenty of boat trips to near by islands and islets are available while there are a few mountain villages to explore (say Zia) and some sightseen like the famous ancient Asclepion 3-4 kms outside Kos Town, remains of a Roman house and Odeon, the three of Hippokrates, a mosque and a knight's fort on Kos Town and a few other sites around the island. Many different small sea side towns and resorts and plenty of nice beaches to explore.
If watersports and good amenities is a must, would you consider maybe FB instead of AI? There is a Mark Warner resort on Kos, worths to check it out.
