June 2015: It's another bumper year for Greek island holidays with tourist numbers up 10.5% in the first five months of 2015. Holiday visitors are spending more too with receipts from tourism rising 12% on last year. Problems with the Greek economy have failed to put off holiday visitors not only from the UK but from Germany and other European countries too. Fears of a slowdown in the market have proved unfounded as the good exchange rate with the Euro and cheaper prices across Greece have attracted more visitors than ever to Greek Island beaches. Holiday visitors to the Cyclades are up on last year, while visitors to the islands in the Ionian stay pretty much at last year's levels. Holidays on Crete and Rhodes are down slightly however, prompting caution over passing last year's record for Greek holidays.
