Faliraki can lay a pretty decent claim to being the first ever lad's holiday destination. It was back when a lad's holiday generally meant a long weekend in Blackpool with your mates that a few groups of lads decided to think bigger, and Faliraki on the Greek islands seemed to fit the bill. Word spread and within a few years it was a Mecca for groups of lads and ladies from all over Europe after the same things, fun in the sun and BIG nights out. The 'Faliraki effect' has now been replicated the world over, but Faliraki still remains one of the top summertime destinations for a lad's holiday. And the fact that it's been around for a while means that it does everything 100% right for a lad's holiday.
Bars In Faliraki
Life is pretty straightforward in Faliraki, there are two streets for you to make a bee line for: Bar Street and Club Street, and both contain what their names suggest (if only everything in life was that simple!). Bar Street is home to a wealth of cocktail and beer serving establishments and is where all the like-minded groups of lads and ladies congregate from around 10pm. Favourite bars include Ziggy's for cocktails (legend has it that this is where the 'Fishbowl' was invented); for some serious karaoke head to KGB, or if there's any footy on hit up George's bar
Clubs In Faliraki
Around 1am the focus changes to Club Street, where you need to decide what you want out of the rest of your night. Matrix is a super-cool club with a nice chill out garden to head for when things get too hot on the dance floor; Bed Club dishes out some clubbier tunes and gets the big name DJs in throughout July and August, and Faliraki's first and most famous club, the Q Club, is still the place to be and guaranteed to be going off until 5am. Tough call!
