Pelion Peninsula, Greece

In Central Greece, it’s dominated by a mountain range and is lush, green and dotted with charming villages. Its beaches are set in pretty rocky coves and wooded inlets, and are a mixture of sand and shingle. The water is perfect for swimming and snorkelling.

Pelion is a taste of traditional Greece and ideal for a quiet getaway. Many Greeks take their holidays here and you’re less likely to find yourself surrounded by Brits.
