Every once in a while, spending time in nature and disconnecting from our overconnected world is a necessity. But forgoing all comfort may be a daunting task for many. That’s why there is glamping, a way of life that takes camping to a whole new level and gives the opportunity to enjoy camping without too much compromise. While glamping may not be a well-established trend in Greece yet, there are a few glamping sites where you can experience it at its best.
Located on Santa Maria Beach on the northeastern coast of the island of Paros, the Santa Maria Surfing Beach is a camping complex offering a variety of accommodation to its visitors, including a collection of beach huts (read wood cabins) in a natural setting. Equipped with electricity, as well as two single beds and a closet, the cabins can accommodate up to two people. Ideal for young people and backpackers, the cabins allow for happy moments in nature with the basic necessities at an affordable price.
Located in Sarti, in the picturesque region of Halkidiki, Armenistis Camping & Bungalows is conveniently located by the beach and boasts a collection of living spaces for all tastes, as well as a restaurant, a café, a bar, and sports facilities for adults and children.

But you can also choose a sturdy sea-view tent, equipped with a double bed and a sofa bed or bunk bed, a kitchen, and an outdoor patio with a sea view. For big groups, the youth hostel tents are ideal.
