Movies to help relive the Greek holiday experience


Oh how we wish we were sitting on a beach in the Greek islands. Cocktail in one hand, magazine or newspaper in the other. Life couldn’t get any more perfect.

Then we wake up and realise we’re stuck at home making home-made cocktails and enjoying a backyard slip ‘n’ slide.

But no matter! We can still relive the Greek summer holiday experience through these movies listed below:

Boy on a Dolphin (1957)

The Guns of Navarone (1961)

Zorba The Greek (1964)

For your eyes only (1981)

Shirly Valentine (1989)

The Big Blue (1988)

Captain Corelli’s Mandolin (2001)

The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants (2005)

Mamma Mia! (2008)
