When you are planning your honeymoon, it’s an easy choice to settle on a trip to Greece. The sheer number of gorgeous locations makes the country the perfect backdrop to your romantic getaway. But where exactly should you spend your time in Greece? To get the most out of your Greece honeymoon, we suggest curating a trip with multiple locations from this list of romantic locales.
Crete is an amazing place to unwind after the hustle and bustle of planning and executing a wedding. On the largest Greek island, you and your spouse will love taking long walks along the Venetian harbor, soaking up views from atop a picturesque lighthouse, or dining in one of the many waterfront restaurants. Picture a candlelight dinner, peering out across the Mediterranean enjoying amazing cuisine with the love of your life sitting across from you. You can even go horseback riding or enjoy a luxury spa. On top of that, Crete has around 300 days of sunshine a year, so you have more flexibility when planning your trip at a good time of year.
Santorini has made a name for itself as one of the best places to honeymoon in Greece. From its black sand beaches to unforgettable sunsets, Santorini offers the perfect canvas to paint the Greece honeymoon of your dreams. You will definitely not regret spending time around the island, soaking up the culture and seeing the best of what Greece has to offer.
Picture the two of you slowly approaching the most famous beach in Greece, cutting through pristine blue water on a charming boat. Once you embark upon Shipwreck Cove, you dive into the sparkling Mediterranean for snorkeling and discover majestic loggerhead turtles swimming about. After a day of adventure, you can both relax and soak up the gorgeous sunsets at the Kerri Cliffs. Zakynthos offers a truly special experience for honeymooners.
If you and your new spouse are the adventurous types, Meteora could be the perfect destination for your Greece honeymoon. Meteora has amazing hiking trails and breathtaking places to snap some photos. It has massive plateaus and rolling hills adorned with historic monasteries that are so beautiful they are nearly indescribable. In addition, the area is absolutely gorgeous during the winter, so you won’t be restricted to only the warmer months when planning your honeymoon.
Kefalonia is a lesser-known part of Greece but it offers everything you’d need for an unforgettable honeymoon. Between the pristine beaches and quaint island villages, the ambiance is incredible for a romantic getaway. In addition, it is perfect for those ‘foody’ couples out there. There are some great food tours and a popular brewery where you can fill up and live lavishly while celebrating your love. Are you more on the adventurous side? Check out Kefalonia’s Mount Ainos National park where you can go hiking, horseback riding, and scuba diving all in one place.
Corfu is absolutely teeming with beauty and history. You and your spouse will love sightseeing the hundreds of historic churches and monasteries scattered across the island. Corfu is also an amazing place to take olive oil tasting tours. The resort-studded shoreline boasts some of the nicest suites to spend your dream Greece honeymoon.
