Even if your relationship status changes now and again, your friends are always your safest bet, that’s why getting on a boat with them to travel to an island remains a true classic. Whether we are talking about your school gang, a tight group of friends, or just new colleagues that are looking for a true bonding trip away from the office, an island getaway is always a good idea. Of course you have to choose wisely and discover the perfect destination for your type of group.
Dont worry! Let’s Ferry has the best ideas for group vacations and amazing summer destinations, with cheap ferry tickets. All you need to do is choose!

Zen: You know...they are the type of friends that hate planning and really enjoy their freedom to come and go as everyone pleases, without following a strict schedule. Here are the best islands where they can enjoy being alone, together:

Koufonissia
This is an island where you do not need a car since everything is at such close range that you are bound to bump into each other. Meet your friends at Italida, Pori or Pisina, three of the most beautiful Cycladic beaches, the most famous ones in Koufonissia. You can take the little boat to Kato Koufonissi by yourself since it is just a 10-minute ride that you can easily return from and meet up with the rest of the gang back at Fanos, even before your beer gets warm!

Leros
A surprising island with crystal waters and a peaceful lifestyle that you’ll adore. Pebbled or sandy and protected from the winds, the beaches here are perfect for a day by the sea. Whether you prefer sunbathing or diving to check out the shipwrecks that rest around Leros, you and your friends won’t know where to start: Cosmopolitan Alinda, secluded Agia Kiura or Krufos with its interesting cave? You can travel to Leros from Piraeus or from several Cycladic and Dodecanese islands.

Samothrace
Life on this North Aegean island is by far different from your usual beach - bar – cobblestoned alleys pattern you will find almost everywhere else. Here you will discover a fascinating morphology with hot springs and forests, combined with great food. The climb up to the natural pools becomes more and more demanding as you reach the top of Mount Saos. For fans of sandy beaches, Pachia Ammos is exotic, organized and just 15 km from the port of Kamariotissa. Samothrace is an ideal destination for groups of friends from Northern Greece, who want to spend 2-3 days on an island, without traveling forever to reach their destination.

Work friends: When you decide to bond with your colleagues over a shared vacation, you must make sure there is a variety of choices for everyone. Pick destinations that have interesting sites, nice beaches, refined restaurants and relaxed beach bars, and make everyone happy.

Rhodes
The Medieval City of Rhodes is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is considered to offer its visitors one of the most beautiful strolls found on the Greek islands, on the street of the Knights that starts from the port and ends at the Palace of the Grand Master. As for the island nightlife, you can choose anything between low budget canteens and luxury restaurants, with a large variety of options that will suit everyone. The island is also an ideal starting point for day trips to Chalki or Symi with your water cooler buddies that are soon to become water bottle besties.

Crete
Castles, towering mountains, the ruins of an ancient civilization and beaches where you’ll get to introduce yourself to Caretta – Caretta turtles. Perfect! Just a few sips of iced raki distillate, and this destination is sure to break the ice between colleagues that still don’t know each other very well. Each of the island’s prefectures has activities that everyone can do together or separately: Start with a group selfie in exotic Balos followed by a tour of the Old Town in Chania. Feel like testing your team work skills? Try to reach the Samaria Gorge or spend a night of free camping in Kedrodassos. Travel to Heraklion city and discover Knossos together. Feel like relaxing in luxury? Agios Nikolaos has Elounda and you can even go on a day trip to infamous Spinalonga. At sunset, make sure you have booked a nice table somewhere around Fortezza in Rethymnon and just relax with a little office gossip! Travel to all the major ports of the island by booking cheap ferry tickets to Crete through Let’s Ferry.

For night owls: Positive vibes, beautiful beaches and easy access to everything will make you want to relax and burn the midnight oil with the gang.

Skiathos
Skiathos is the queen of the Sporades complex, and it holds its crown tight not only because of its natural beauty, but also for its fantastic nightlife. The port serves up bars and clubs with exotic cocktails and fun-loving crowds. Fun on the island starts early at the beach bars like the one in Koukounaries that serves you a good dose of golden sands as a bonus. The view from Bourtzi, the famous castle of the island, while your favorite music plays in the background, is the best way to have fun and take in all the beauty of the glorious site.

The island is famous for its people’s longevity and relaxed lifestyle... until night falls and it’s time to have fun and drink some delicious Ikarian red wine, you can do a lot: Diving in the Seychelles, the tropical beach of the island, windsurfing in Mesakti, or walking in the gorge of Halaris to enjoy a wonderful view from Koskina Castle.
