So, you’ve decided to take the big step and planning everything even during these unreal moments the whole world is going through.
The honeymoon trip is equally important as all other items on your to do list, as it needs to be as romantic and relaxing, as possible so that you return back home full of lifetime memories.
Greece is the obvious (of course not the only) honeymoon destination, and for a good reason. Who wouldn’t want to spend their time laying under the sun, swimming in exquisite crystal clear beaches and consuming all kinds of fresh, delicious food and drinks? Top these with some of the most important archeological sites and you’ve got everything in one trip!
Athens, although it might not be the first thing that comes to your mind when thinking of a honeymoon trip to Greece, it is certainly a stop worth doing in the beginning or before heading back home. A visit to the Acropolis, the new Acropolis museum and the Ancient Agora is a must do. Check the Top things to do in Athens in two days article.
Santorini might be the first island which comes to your mind when planning a honeymoon in Greece. There is no doubt that Santorini is truly breathtaking. It is certainly an island that everyone should visit at least once offering a spectacular sunset, staggering views and picture perfect towns and villages to visit.
If you plan to visit a second island (and we suggest you do so) then choose one that is less popular.
Greece has the 3rd biggest coastline in Europe with more than 6000 islands and islets out of which over 200 are inhabited. So why visit only one when you can choose from so many!
Here are some suggestions
Naxos, the biggest and greenest island in Cyclades known for its turquoise seas and white sandy beaches.
Folegandros, a small island close to Santorini offering pure relaxation. A visit to the Orthodox church of Panagia where you may enjoy a magnificent sunset is a must do.
Milos, although it is becoming a popular destination, with more than 80 beaches to visit. To get most out of it rent a boat for a complete island tour… you wont regret it.
Last but not least for those who are in love with the sea the best way to explore Greek islands is by boat. Consider renting a sailing boat (skippered or not) and spend an unforgettable week doing island hoping.
