March Login Legend

Hands up if you’re the new March Login Legend! 🙋‍♀️⁠

Congrats to our new LL Queen, Ash. We hope you all enjoy this dreamy Greek sunset on your Pelikin screens for the month, we sure will. In light of our new Login Legend location (Ios, Greece), ⁠we decided to give you a low down of the best Greek island you should be hopping along. 

Famous for their snow white buildings, the bluest sea you’ve ever see and the most stunning sunset. Travelling to the Greek islands is an instagrammers dream. But what some don’t know, is the epic nightlife that goes on once the sun shuts down, and it’s insane.

Mykonos

Mykonos is a popular island for celebs and models looking to get the happy-medium of party and pretty views. They have some beaut beaches such as Eli, Kalo Livadi and Kalafatis beach. As well as some awesome beach clubs that stay open till early hours of the morning (5am). The ones not to miss out on include; Paradise beach club which hold big DJ set nights such as Tiesto, Nervo and Ministry of Sound. Tropicana beach club and Super Paradise beach club.

For afternoon activities there are cute shops along Matogianni that are perfect for holiday gifts. Alefkandra (also known as little Venice) and the Old harbour are lovely destinations to go dining.

Ios

If you’re heading to the Greek islands to go partying, then Ios needs to be the last location on your list, because no where will top it. Famous for the wild nights, late nights and being invaded by Aussies, Ios will be sure to provide you with the hangover from hell. 

The best beach clubs and night raves would include ‘Far Out Beach Club,’ which holds mental events every night including much alcohol. You can even stay on sight in their budget bungalows, luxury villas or spa hotel, but be careful, you may never want to leave.

Once partying at ‘Far Out’ for pres, head to the awesome night clubs in the town, including Traffic, Click, Coo Bar and Sweet Irish Dream. These clubs are based in Chora and don’t usually open until 1am but continue until the sun rises. There are loads of bar crawls that take you around them and give you a free singlet and shots on entry. 

If you want some more cultural beachy visits then we recommend checking out Manganari beach, Homer’s Tomb, Lorentzena beach, Milopotas beach. At these beaches you can take boat tours or attempt  paddle-boarding.

Santorini

Santorini is just as you may imagine. Couple after couple, photographers chasing them around for the perfect honeymoon pictures. Unreal sunsets, postcard picture views, but they also have a secret selection of clubs and busy bars during the night. The top handful to head to include Kira Thira, Enigma and Koo Club

During the day Oia is where you’ll see the famous town, Santo wine tasting is also not one to miss out on, taste the best of Greek wine bottles while overlooking the stunning scenery and leave feeling fuzzy. Or grab a quad bike and drive over to red beach to see the famous unique sand and stop off at white beach on the way to take snaps of the clay cliffs.
