Sadly, it has happened more than once to head to a supposedly wild beach or destination in Greece, only to find it chocked full of tourists. If you can ignore them, good for you!

If you want to visit something off the beaten path, you need to jump in your car, and start driving until you discover it by yourself. Even so, Greece is full of surprises, but chances to meet those huge tourist buses in the wilderness are low.

As the best places are also the most difficult to access, you may need to work hard to earn your tranquility and to enjoy wild and secluded beaches we all see in photos taken off-season.

If you can’t be bothered with travel planning, you’re welcome to browse the guided tours and book the one that suits your style.

Where do you want to go?

Offbeat Greece is the sum of over 20 years of travel.

I am Violeta, and I’ve been on road trips across many places in Greece back in the times before the internet, the GPS and the digital cameras. I shot the photos of my first Greece holidays on film. I wandered through olive trees and rocky landscapes, on dirt roads that took me off the beaten path, many times without intention.

I lived in Crete for a winter and I loved every minute of it. Crete is one of my favorite destinations in Greece. From Heraklion to Chania, and from Rethymno to Agia Galini, Cretan roads offer scenic drives, full of excitement and scattered with small taverns where you can taste the most amazing foods.

Greece was the country I had chosen to be my first home away from home. I find pleasure in returning for a small vacation, a long weekend, or an adventurous road trip whenever I get a chance. I’m a short flight away from Athens.

Shall we meet for a chat and a drink?
