Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I always was under impression that ONLY Adriatic sea has that gorgeous blue color and crystal clear water.But my daughter who has seen Adriatic sea for many years when she was younger told me that this sea was even more blue and clear.She was fascinated.
Weather was great even it was September and it was not so crowded as during the top season.
And you can eat souvlaki (meat meal) for 2.5 Euros

Or seafood

Accommodation was what they presented it to be with photos and totally satisfactory (and more then that for the price).
Honestly here in Australia one can not find half decent accommodation for ONE night for the money of 10 nights there in Greece.
And beaches and coast are simply great.Yes Croatian coast is one of the most beautiful I have seen but this is totally comparable.

I had a similar impression about the blue of the Adriatic Sea, and this after having been to Greece. I only saw the sea around Greece at the edges of the mainland, though (no island trip), and this was 23 years ago. On your daughter's photos, there isn't much deep blue, but that may be due to the near-shore sand.

Same here.Aegean Sea is where I have been then but this where my daughter was is Ionian sea. Also islands seem to be something different and much more beautiful.
And also I do not like that much when coast is flat and no mountains around like where I have been in Greece and also here around Brisbane...maybe because I have those memories of Adriatic coast with mountains and stone everywhere.And honestly I can't forget that pine's smell on Adriatic coast...nowhere else they smell like that I suppose...ah memories :)
