I'm going on holiday to Greece at the beginning of June. I wonder which region is the most beautiful? I care about the sandy beach but I would also like to visit some monuments. I would like to go to the island. Maybe you can help me choose which one I should go to and recommend a reliable hotel? Is June the right time for a holiday in Greece? What's the weather like then?

I liked skiathos very much. Island from the movie Mamma Mia. In June, it's warm in Greece :)

• NAXOS – in June I always recommend staying on Ag. Giorgios Beach directly adjacent to the Port town; because SO handy just to stroll in for cafes, dinner, nightlife, or to get bus for far-out beaches -- no need for car except when u want to explore around the island. However Ag. G has only 3 "upscale" hotels and their location isn't as good as some simpler places. Often people ask me about posh places with glam websites ... which in actuality are way back from a beach, isolated, require car rental even to get a cup of coffee. But these people are going by "smart-phone research" instead of some real homework.
•SANTORINI – the big push is for Oia by the super-luxe crowd, bridezillas, others affected by promo... and indeed it does have the superluxe places. However, I like Firostephani best .. it has hotels with great caldera views, pools etc, at half the price -- and it isn't jammed from 10am - 4pm, 6pm-sundown with cruise crowds, package-tour throngs etc... in fact no one stops at Firostephani except the smart few who book rooms there. My routine, with newbies like u, is to catch the 8:15 bus to Oia (a handy Firostephani stop just behind the rim-side hotels), and enjoy Oia views & take pix early, before the human "rush hour". But that may not be for you... its just my opinion, based on 5-6 visits to Santorini, I forget which.

Best Time to Visit Greece for Good Weather. May to October has lots of sunny weather. July and August are the hottest months. Beaches in Greece are best for swimming and sunbathing from late May to early October. And beautiful beaches, charming cities, and delicious food. I don't want to miss at this time to visit
