Santorini

Santo­­rini, famous for its white-washed, blue-roofed architecture, picture-perfect seaside villages, stunning sunsets, beautiful beaches and delicious wine, is a favorite destination for honeymooners. We will book a luxurious suite for you, with views to the caldera of Santorini and a private infinity pool if you wish. Santorini is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Santorini is especially popular with those renewing their vows. You might choose to renew your vows on the balcony of a traditional cave chapel with sweeping views of the sea as your backdrop. Then, spend some time reflecting on your commitment to each other as you take a romantic walk through a hidden paradise we have discovered and will be happy to share with you. Later on, you can sit down to a picnic spread with local delicacies including a bottle of one of the best local wines, cheeses, dried tomatoes, olives, and other seasonal delicacies as you watch the sunset.

Nafplio

Another one for romantics, Nafplio in the Peloponnese is a magical and charming little town with an interesting history. This sweet, seaside town was the first capital of Greece. Today, it will charm you with its small squares, vine-covered neoclassical homes and the beautiful waterfront which is the perfect place to take a romantic stroll with your special someone as the sun is setting.

Monemvasia

If you are looking to avoid the crowds, Monemvasia may be more your flavor. It’s much more low-key than some of the other destinations on our list, but not any less desirable. When you first step foot into the old medieval castle town, you’ll be transported to another time with numerous historic buildings lining narrow, stone streets. The town is also the perfect location for exploring the nearby area which is known for numerous secluded beaches, snorkeling, and historic sites, which are rarely crowded. In the evening, wind down with your special someone over delicious local food and wine in one of the town’s charming tavernas.

Spetses

Easily accessible from Athens, Spetses might as well be a world away with its laid back vibe and natural beauty. The island has a number of lovely boutique hotels and is ringed with quiet, secluded beaches that you might even have all to yourself. All of this seclusion doesn’t mean you’ll have to miss out on the nightlife, there are plenty of cool places to have a cocktail or enjoy a stylish night out on the town. It makes a good jumping off point for exploring other nearby islands or embarking on a sailing trip around the Saronic Gulf. For the ultimate romantic finish to your day, book a horse-drawn carriage to take you for a ride around the beautiful harbor – it’s sure to make for a lasting memory of your honeymoon in Greece.

Milos

If you are hoping to get away to an island that feels authentic and untouched for your honeymoon in Greece, Milos may be the right choice for you. You won’t find the island crowded, but the beaches are numerous and are some of the best in Greece. The island has incredibly unique rock formations which you’ll be able to enjoy on a private or group sea kayaking or sailing tour to stunning caves and coves. The towns along the island’s coast are perfect for picturesque walks and when it comes to food, you’ll be spoilt for choice as there are endless places where you can sit down to a delicious meal and a glass of wine. You can also visit the lovely island of Sifnos, known as a haven for foodies, with a ferry connection from Milos.

Naxos

Naxos is an exciting option for the adventurous honeymooner, with more affordable prices than some of the more famous islands. You’ll find spectacular scenery, beautiful villages, centuries-old Byzantine churches, interesting archeological sites and much more. There are many beautiful beaches such as Agia Anna, Kastraki, Parthena and Mikri Viglia. It’s also easy to add on a trip to Paros which is only a short ferry ride away.
