Famous for its majestic sunsets, cliffs and the whitewashed, cubiform houses of the two principal towns Oia and Fira, Santorini is very rich in gastronomic experiences and romantic hotels, especially for couples.

If you are curious if there is something more to add in your To-Do list-another unforgettable experience for the honeymooners could be a helicopter tour above Santorini.


Beaches, olive groves, mountains, vineyards, history, and spectacular scenery.

This is Crete.

Crete is the largest island in Greece and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean, measuring 60 by 260 km.

As such Crete forms a significant part of the cultural heritage of Greece and it was once the center of the earliest known civilization in Europe, the Minoan civilization.

As per the Greek mythology, Zeus was born in Crete and with the Phoenician princess Europe, they had three children. Minos, who was one of them became a great king who founded the Minoan civilization.

Honeymooners will enjoy Crete because the island has many things to offer and can be a truly romantic and unforgettable getaway.

Crete has some of the best private and luxurious resorts in the Mediterranean, so you can find your intimate place and have a special time away from the world.

Superb honeymoon suites with every luxury imaginable, beautiful dining experiences, spa and hundreds other tempting things for both of you.

During your time to relax together, you’ll find plenty of things to keep you busy in Crete, because Crete is not only a romantic, but a historical place too.

The Palace of Knossos and the Archaeological Museum are the places where every tourist visits in the capital Heraklion, while Chania is a city with a beautiful Venetian harbor from the 14th-century.

Chania Town is the second largest city in Crete and it is a really nice place to visit. If you stay in Chania you will be tempted by its waterfront restaurants and interesting narrow streets. There is located also the Nautical Museum of Crete with interesting collections starting from the Bronze Age.

When you see Chania, you must see one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, Seitan Limania Beach. Nestled in a narrow canyon leading out to the open sea Seitan Limania Beac has all you have dreamed of. White sand and turquoise waters that turn to deep blue when you go further into the sea.

Truly romantic.

Crete is a natural choice for a romantic honeymoon. The ultimate place to relax together and offers amazing sceneries, beautiful beaches, tasty food.

If you get tired by the luxury or the rays along the island’s sandy coasts, you can visit and hike to one of the longest canyons in Europe, Samaria Gorge. Another must-see romantic spot in Crete is the Old Town of Rethymnon. A popular touristic place Rethymnon is located west of Heraklion.

The charming Old Town of Rethymnon dates back to the 11th century and was influenced by Turkish and Venetian culture.

In Crete is also the famous town Agios Nikolaos, known for its boutique-lined streets, so during some of your romantic days of joy, you can spend some time shopping together.

Those seeking the sun must visit Elafonissi which is one of the most beautiful beaches in Crete and Greece.


Mykonos is another gem from the Cyclades islands and is a synonym of elegance and style.

Renowned for its nightlife and upbeat atmosphere, Mykonos could be an ideal summer honeymoon choice for those who prefer the cosmopolitan life or want to go for a honeymoon hangout full of fun.

Mykonos offers a vast variety of different culinary experiences-anything from hip restaurants to little traditional taverns. Great restaurants and bars and a few great clubs offer something for any taste.
It’s a Party Time!

Mykonos is one of the favored holiday destinations in Greece not only for those who just got married but also for movie stars, artists and super-rich people. If you never heard about it, it is good to know the island of Mykonos is sometimes called “the Ibiza of the Greek Islands” because of the similarities with the Spanish peninsula – stunning beaches and lively nightlife.

The nightlife is one of the highlights of Mykonos. The other great things here are the wonderful beaches and the weather.

With a typical Mediterranean climate, Mykonos is sunny for up to 300 days a year, but it is good to mention that at times it can be a bit windy.

The main town of Mykonos is known as Mykonos, Chora (Chora means “the Town” in Greek) or Hora and is considered one of the most beautiful towns in the Cyclades.

Chora is popular with its whitewashed windmills, the trademark of Mykonos, with the lovely quarter with houses located on the seashore known as “the Little Venice,” and of course with the adorable romantic sunset views from the Little Venice captured by many who got “Just Married.”

Apart from the usual tourist activities, such as sunbathing, swimming at sea, adventure trips, gourmet restaurants or tours on a private yacht, the honeymooners can enjoy Yoga and Spa in some of the luxury boutique hotels or private villas on the island.

Of course, there are many other things you and your beloved one can do while staying in Mykonos, but I will leave this topic for another time.

Something extraordinary on the Mykonos island is the Mykonos Castle, also known Castle Panigirakis.

This place is probably the best for watching the breathtaking sunsets. With its superb location and traditional Greek flavor, the castle of Mykonos will imbue your honeymoon Memories with the aroma of colorful bougainvillea plants, and the sound of the Aegean Sea.

The beautiful Greek island of Mykonos can be an excellent choice for a romantic honeymoon vacation for couples who adore the more dynamic and vibrant life.

However, if you would love to visit Mykonos, but you are not such a big fan of the intensive nightlife, then visiting the island during the spring or in the early autumn can be a better solution for a pleasant honeymoon on a lovely, exotic island full with love,designer stores, souvenir shops,chic boutiques, and charming people.
