If you want to discover one of the most mystical and beautiful environments of the world Greece is the perfect destination. Its cities and landscapes reflects centuries of history and knowledge; and the Mediterranean passion is present in every single place. Greece is surrounded by two seas, the Aegean and the Ionian and the wind conditions are appropriated for the practice of Kitesurfing. There's several spots spread along the coast and all of them enjoy reliable wind conditions for all year kitesurfing; flat shallow waters and white sand beaches will make visitors want time to standstill. From Planet Kitesurf Holidays we will advise you about the best spots and journeys for your kitesurfing holidays in Greece.

The number of tourists visiting Greece each year outway the total population of the country. The capital city of Athens is one of Europe's oldest city and the birthplace of democracy. Not surprisingly, Greece is the planet's third-leading producer of olives and around 7% of the world's marble comes from Greece.

Greece is no longer a cheap country. Prices have rocketed since the adoption of the euro in 2002. ATMs are to be found in every town large enough to support a bank – and certainly in all the tourist areas. If you’ve got MasterCard or Visa/Access, there are plenty of places to withdraw money. Credit cards are now an accepted part of the commercial scene in Greece just about everywhere. The main reason to carry travellers cheques rather than cash is the protection they offer against theft. They are, however, losing popularity as more and more travelers opt to put their money in a bank at home and withdraw it at ATMs as they go.

Greece can be divided into a number of main climatic regions. The Attica Peninsula, the Cyclades, the Dodecanese, Crete, and the central and eastern Peloponnese have a more typically Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and milder winters. In July and August, the mercury can soar to 40°C (over 100°F) in the shade just about anywhere in the country. July and August are also the months of the meltemi, a strong northerly wind that sweeps the eastern coast of mainland Greece (including Athens) and the Aegean Islands, especially the Cyclades. Spring and autumn are the best times to visit Greece; specifically May, June, September and October.

UK / EU passport holders: A full 10 year passport valid until at least 6 months after date of return. No visa required. Other passport holders: Please check with Greek Consulate (020 7221 6467).

No jabs are required to travel to Greece, but a yellow-fever vaccination certificate is required if you are coming from an infected area. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that all travellers should be covered for diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps, rubella and polio.
