40 year old single traveller

Hi

I'm looking to have a weeks holiday in Greece. I don't know where as the choice is overwhelming. I'd like a beach holiday to relax and unwind during the day but with some nightlife in the evening. Restaurants, bars and maybe a nightclub if I'm still awake :)

I don't want to be surrounded by couples and families. But maybe fun people doing the same as me.

Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

Hi there

If you are flying to Heraklion ( Crete has two airports Heraklion and Chania) then have a look at Stalis and Hersonissos, if you enjoy beach time then I would look at Stalis which has a huge long sandy beach, and Stalis is also very close to Malia if you fancy a bit more of a crazy night.

I suggest doing some You Tube searches of all recommendations which will give you a feel for the different places.

Have a look at the lovely town of Rethymnon which is roughly half way between the two airports. It has a long beach running east of the town and you could walk along it until you find a quiet spot. At night you will find plenty of bars and tavernas, music bars and clubs.

You could try Sissi, it's quiet enough that you'll not feel lost in a big resort, but big enough that you'll have the chance to meet other single travellers in it's various bars. It's also close enough to Malia should you want something a bit more lively.

Sissi also has a late night music bar at COBA and if you are still awake and want to dance :-) Kera Bar https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Rev…
