the Greek Breakfast excellence 



The Hellenic Chamber of Hotels goes on with its ambitious initiative to establish a breakfast menu in all hotels of the country through the exclusive use of local Greek products and each destination’s cuisine.

In a timeframe of five years, the chamber aims for guests at hotels throughout Greece to become acquainted with the local gastronomic wealth and local products via Greek breakfast.

According to Mr George Pittas, such a program needs time and hard work since it’s mainly all about hoteliers changing their attitudes.

For years there was an attitude that either underestimated breakfast as a meal or served it based on international standards (continental American or English breakfast),” he stressed.

Hotels that take part in the “Greek Breakfast” program will receive a special seal to display on their premises. The seal ensures quality standards and can also be used as a promotional and marketing tool to increase clientele and competitiveness. According to a study conducted by Agropole, a food and agribusiness-consulting company, the serving of Greek breakfast in hotels in the short term would bring a steady clientele, an increase in bookings by 15 percent, a rise in turnover by 10 percent, while the hotel promotion through mass and electronic media would grow by six percent.

Oh that Jump!

In one of the most famous beaches of Greece, the Navagio Beach (“navagio” means “shipwreck”) in Zakynthos, a group of adventurous people did base jumping free falls!

Navagio Beach takes its name by the shipwreck which was washed offshore on a secluded beach of Zakynthos and today is one of the most alluring sights on the island.

The shipwreck happened in 1982, when the ship Panagiotis, carrying contraband cigarettes from Turkey in international waters in order to sell them at an agreed point, lost its course and fell into the rocks of the northwestern side of Zakynthos. Until then, the beach was called Agios Georgios.

Due to the inaccessibility of the area the waters have remained crystal clear, and during the latest years of Greek crisis, this particular Greek beach become of the most popular, and often the first in popularity

among world travelers. 

Today it appears to be already sold by this governent, but nobody tells clearly if it is or it m is not.For more, go to our  What a Beach Page
