Greek Island honeymoon Island Choices

First stop Athens - most couples want to stay a night or two in Athens!
Athens is the historical capital of Europe, dating from the first settlement in the Neolithic age. The highlight of Athens is the Acropolis, a must see for all couples honeymooning in Greece. A rooftop dinner overlooking the Acropolis is must do as well. The shopping area is the Plaka district. If you have an extra day you can visit Delphi believed to be the center of the earth, and Cape Sounion. ( the setting for many movies)


Honeymoon in Santorini

The Absolute Jewel of Greece

“a must see island”

We often can be heard telling honeymooners who call us " do not leave Greece without seeing Santorini" truly it is the highlight of Greece, Europe and maybe the world. Believe it or not, Santorini was actually devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC! This volcano shaped the way the island looks now.

Honeymooners love the beauty of this spectacular islands and do not want to leave their room or suite, hopefully it has a Jacuzzi or pool. It is worth it to splurge in Santorini. The whitewashed, cave houses are spread along the caldera, and there are two main villages on the island, Fira and Oia, both cling to cliffs above an underwater caldera (crater). They overlook the sea, small islands to the west and beaches made up of black, red and white lava pebbles.

Most couples want to stay in the beautiful hotels overlooking the caldera and the best views are from Oia. There’s great nightlife, excellent beaches, spectacular scenery and tons of romance make this one of the world's top destinations for honeymooners. There are many steps so hopefully you are in good shape, otherwise you will be getting a workout!

Fira is the capital of Santorini, a Greek island in the Aegean Sea. The Museum displays items from the destroyed Bronze Age settlement of Akrotiri, including wall paintings and ceramics. Fira’s clifftop location provides amazing views of Nea Kameni, a still-active volcanic island to the west. Fira is the touristy and busiest village ( the cruise ships pull in to the port) with the most amount of nightlife. The cruise ships do bring a lot of tourism to this town.

Fira is less expensive, so if you are on a budget you can get a great view for less than Oia or Imerovigli however there are downsides. Couples who choose to honeymoon in Santorini must speak to an expert to choose where to stay, its crucial the right spot is chosen and only an agent who has been there can really give you the correct direction and guidance. Our experts will be of great help in determining your best options!


The Village of Oia ( pronounced EE-AH)

Oia is a coastal town on the northwestern tip of Santorini, the most beautiful spot in our opinion on the entire island. We love to send couples to Oia, it has a lot of elegance and charm. Oia town has whitewashed houses carved into the rugged clifftops, and overlooks a vast caldera filled with water. You cannot stop snapping pictures all day, the light constantly changes and sunsets over the Oia castle at the end of town are the most popular.

Oia is the most expensive village to stay in, most of the hotels are five star hideaways such as Canaves Oia Suites ( we love this hotel!) Alta Mare by Adronis, Santorini Secret to name a few. These hotels know us well as we have been sending honeymooners their way for years, and our honeymooners benefit greatly by our contacts!

Imerovigli village on Santorini

Imerovigli is a quaint smaller village on the island of Santorini, Greece, adjacent to the north of the island capital Fira. Imerovigli is most famous for its beautiful sunset and its location raised up at a higher point than Fira. There are many hotels in this area and the village has some great little hideaways.

HIKING TIP: Our Greece honeymoon experts suggest that you can take a 2 hour hike from Fira to Oia, one of the best hikes in all of Santorini that you won’t want to miss.


MYKONOS - Fun Party Island with nice beaches, shopping and some hiking as well.

is Mykonos a great honeymoon destination?

Yes and No, it all depends on when you are going, and where you are staying. This is another reason to trust an expert Greece travel agent to help you plan. If you meet a couple who honeymooned in Mykonos and did not love it, chances are they booked on their own and chose a place that “looked” great online and had good reviews.

Mykonos is a beautiful island with some great beaches, landmark windmills, and fantastic night spots for partying late into the night. The island is most known for its summer party atmosphere. Paradise Beach is an area that has bars that blare thumping music. Loud and high end dance clubs often have world-renowned DJs and stay open well past dawn. Mykonos landmarks include a row of 16th-century windmills, which sit on a hill above Mykonos town.

For a little culture there are boat trips to the uninhabited ancient island of Delos and the extensive ruins there, among the best in Greece. Our experts tell our honeymooners how to spend their time and about amazing places to visit on the island. July is the craziest month to visit, and there are a lot of

Ancient historical site to visit on your honeymoon

Delos is the birth place of Apollo and Artemis, used to be a religious center for the whole of Greece in the ancient times, as well as the principal trading port in the Eastern Mediterranean during the roman times. Delos is uninhabited today and is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, receiving large numbers of visitors who flock to admire remarkable monuments and impressive mosaics.


Honeymoon in Paros

Smaller island that is less touristy yet easy to reach from a short ferry from Mykonos

Paros is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea best known for its beaches and traditional villages. Paros is an ideal Greek island honeymoon spot for couples who love beautiful beaches and quaint villages. For example, Parikia - the bayside capital, is a boating and transportation hub for the Cyclades region. It's also home to a landmark Byzantine church from the 4th century A.D. The north coast's Kolimbithres is a beach where naturally sculpted rocks form swimming coves, a must see on your Paros honeymoon

Paros is 13 miles long and 10 miles wide

The eastern edge boasts the island’s best beaches; to the north, the bustling town of Naoussa; in the center of the island is the ancient city of Lefkes. The Aegean Sea, which comes on gently along the sandy beach shore is brilliant turquoise, warm, glittering and crystal clear. The most popular beaches are Golden Beach, on the eastern coast that is known for great windsurfing, and the nearby Pounda Beach, nicknamed Music Beach for its D.J.’s, dance parties and spring break atmosphere.

Antiparos — a tiny island less than a mile off the western coast of Paros. The Agio Ioannis cave, a stony abyss of stalactites and stalagmites is where Lord Byron carved his name. There are very few mopeds and cars in the main town, the streets are as narrow as sidewalks, and covering it all is a bounty of bougainvillea.


PAROS ISLAND:

The Island of Romance and Seclusion


The cosmopolitan island of Paros in the Aegean Archipelago has a rich cultural history, stunning natural scenery, bountiful produce, and warm hospitable people. It is located in the heart of the complex of the Cyclades islands, a group of islands taking their name from the circle they form around the island of Delos, a sacred island in Greek antiquity.


Paros Beaches
Paros’ 120km of coastline offers a mix of stunning beaches, idyllic harbours and extraordinary natural rock formations. Parasporos, Farangas, Alyki, Pounta, Golden Beach, Dryos, Molos, Kolymbithres, Santa Maria are just a few of Paros’ beautiful award-winning beaches.

Paros Natural Beauty
The island of Paros is home to an absolute abundance of plant life. Wild flowers, herbs, fruit and olive trees, gorse and medicinal plants all combine to create a rich tapestry of colorful natural beauty and unforgettable sights. Much of the island’s plant life features in traditional spa treatments and remedies, including those used by the Yria Island Boutique Hotel Astir Spa.

Paros Wildlife
As well as plant life, Paros is a veritable oasis for wildlife. Its position in the Cyclades islands makes it a popular resting point for birds migrating north from Africa, and it is home to approximately 200 species of birds throughout the year, including gulls, cormorants, peregrine falcons and eagles. 5,000 marine species inhabit the coasts of the Cyclades islands and many of them can be found in the clear waters surrounding Paros. The island also boasts the largest fleet of fishing boats in the whole Cyclades, and delicious fresh fish forms an important part of Parian cuisine.

Marathi Ancient Marble Quarries
Visit the site of a historic marble quarry which produced the world famous Parian marble which was used by sculptors to produce masterpieces like Aphrodite of Milos (Venus de Milo). Legend has it that this very quarry produced the marble used for Napoleon’s tomb. From the quarry you can hike around the local area, including the Agioi Pantes mountain, the highest point on the island offering spectacular views of all the Cyclades islands.

Kelafou Hill & the Monastery of Saint Antonio
An interesting hike starts from the village of Marpissa in the south east of Paros, and leads up Kelafou hill, past the ruins of a Venetian castle, to the 17th century monastery of Saint Antonio and offers amazing views of the eastern side of the island.

Delion
Home to the ruins of a 5th century Temple of Apollo, this historic was built atop a hill to provide a direct line of sight to the sacred island of Delos. This location offers impressive views of the other Cyclades islands.

Naoussa Town
The pretty town of Noussa on the north coast of Paros is home to a picturesque fishing harbour and Venetian castle, as well as many churches. The nearby Kolympithres bay features extraordinary rock formations created by the sea, and a sandy beach with small coves. The 17th century Loggovarda monastery nearby is also worth a visit.

Lefkes Village
Located in the centre of the island, the picturesque traditional village of Lefkes has lovely winding marble paved streets and charming examples of classic Cycladic village architecture as well as the church of Agia Triada (Holy Trinity). Lefkes also offers a view of the island of Naxos. There are plenty of routes for hiking enthusiasts here – with a walk to the Monastery of Agios Georgios, and a 5km ancient Byzantine marble pathway connecting Lefkes with the village of Podromos.


Honeymoon in Naxos Greece

The Greenest island, mountainous and beautiful beaches

Naxos is the greenest island, only an hour ferry from Mykonos with beautiful high mountains and green valleys. Naxos is an ideal Greek island honeymoon hot spot for couples who want to escape the touristy island of Mykonos. There are beaches, many beautiful exotic beaches just a few minutes’ drive from villages where they still wear traditional dress, weave on old looms and live off the fruit of the land . Naxos has some lovely old churches, monasteries and Venetian castles! Naxos has been inhabited since the 4th Millennium BC and excavations around the island bring to light ancient artifacts and buildings on a regular basis. On Naxos you will find some of the most interesting places to snorkel and scuba dive in all of Greece.

Are you a scuba diver? A must dive, the “Lost Beaufighter”, a British bomber aircraft which sank during World Word II. It is in pristine condition


IOS - A quaint Cycladic village with a lively nightlife, perfect honeymoon hot spot for younger couples

Ios is on the way to Santorini set between Naxos and Santorini. By day, it is a lovely island with nice beaches, by nightfall every house is a disco, bar, fast food or boutique. Ios is not for anyone over 30, at least for not more than a day or so. It's like a Florida beach or Las Vegas at Spring break, if you are of college age this place is it! If you are older, married, and looking for a nice peaceful island forgets about Ios There are daily boats to Santorini and a couple a week to Sifnos and one boat a week to Crete, sometimes more in the summer.


Honeymoon in Crete

The largest island in Greece

Couples may or may not want to visit Crete. It is a less expensive island to visit, but does not have knock your socks off views. Couples do not realize that one of the most advertised and popular hotels, Blue Palace, is about 1.5 hour drive from the airport and the port, and can cost $250 to $300 USD just for a round trip transfer. There are not that many restaurants near the hotels either, forcing you to eat at the hotel and pay top dollar. Couples will save money going to Crete on their honeymoon, but then spend the money on cabs and food. We are not saying do not go to Crete, we just want to send a slight warning to our clients and let them decide.

Crete is the largest island in Greece, and the fifth largest one in the Mediterranean Sea. Crete is easy to fly to from Athens or a ferry from Santorini. In Crete you can discover the remnants of brilliant civilizations, relax on nice white sandy beaches, check out some steep gorges, and become part of the island’s rich gastronomic culture. Crete has many archaeological sites. The Minoan civilization was one of the most significant in the ancient world.

The largest and most densely populate region on the island of Crete is Heraklion (Iráklion). Nestling picturesquely among two imposing mountain ranges - a series of picturesque villages, vast valleys with olive groves and vineyards as well as the best organized tourist infrastructure in Crete.

The Greek Islands- Heaven on Earth

Why Choose The Greek Islands for your honeymoon?

Our honeymoon experts recommend Greece to couples who crave-

  • More than just hanging out on the beach for their honeymoon- Greece is a destination to be explored together, and it is truly an adventure
  • Couples who don’t want a “Sandals” all-inclusive vibe- you will not be partying with other couples in a hot tub, or sitting on one beach all day
  • Want over the top scenery and views- truly one of the most spectacular places on planet earth to see
  • A desire to learn and explore ancient history- brush up on Greek Mythology before you go!
  • The freedom to move around, and try a lot of different dining options- words cannot express or describe the remarkable dining scene
  • Love good wine- Greece is offering some amazing wines these days, at prices far lower than you find in Napa
  • Looking for a little fun nightlife and party scene- Mykonos especially can be a fun place to be in June/ July

Greece is not ideal honeymoon destination for couples who

  • Are looking for an all-inclusive honeymoon- nothing like Sandals here, the all inclusive concept would defeat the purpose of honeymooning in Greece
  • Have to have bathwater warm seas for swimming and snorkeling- the ocean is a little cooler in Greece, not as warm as the Caribbean, Hawaii or South Pacific.
  • Want to stay in one spot for a week- fly all the way to Greece, and you need to see at least 2 islands, 3 if possible, and 4 if you are lucky
  • Are on a specific budget- Greece can be expensive, couples need to factor in the transfers, meals, drinks, cruises, activities. It is less than French Polynesia.


Greece- Is it your ultimate honeymoon destination?

Couples who want an exploration as well as a relaxing honeymoon mixed with romantic dining experiences in quaint villages will find Greece to be an ultimate honeymoon destination. We recommend it for couples who also love being on the water, whether a sunset cruise, or Jet Ski ride around ancient rock formations. Another reason to head to Greece for your honeymoon would be for the accommodations. The islands have secluded, romantic hotels and suites that offer Jacuzzi’s and plunge pools with dramatic views and steps to the beach. Greece is great for couples who want a non-traditional resort feel with high end luxury hotels with spectacular views and luxury suites!

Cool and fun things you can do in Greece on your honeymoon

Explore ancient beautiful islands together by ATV, motorbike or rental car- seeing spectacular sites, beaches, dramatic hillsides, rock cliffs and stunning blue seas.

Discover endless great restaurants and cafes island wide with fresh ingredients and grilled local seafood. There are places to eat for every budget.

History buffs and lovers of art and archaeology will be in heaven - especially on Santorini with the newly found lost Minoan city in Akrotiri from the 5th century.


Are there all inclusive Greece honeymoon resorts?

The Greek Isles are definitely not an all-inclusive vacation experience like you see advertised on TV (such as Sandals resorts). A honeymoon in Greece is totally the opposite of all-inclusive concept where couples stay at one hotel, eat, drink, and do everything in one spot. If you choose Greece, then you will be out and about exploring the islands together in an adventure of a lifetime- seeing some of the most beautiful locations on Planet Earth, eating delicious meals at local romantic and seaside restaurants, renting an ATV or motorbike and exploring ancient ruins and secluded picnic spots overlooking scenery that you’ve seen in the movies.


When should we travel to Greece for our honeymoon?

This question all depends on what you want to experience for your Greek island honeymoon and the temperature you are most comfortable with. It can get very hot in Greece especially in the summer and could be unbearable for some. The hottest months are mid-June to beginning of September.

The Greek Islands are some of the most dramatic, beautiful islands in the world, and perfect for couples seeking an exotic island adventure with almost guaranteed sunshine and dry weather. The season begins April 1st to the end of October (most hotels are closed between November and March). April and May being shoulder season, June peak season, and July - August to mid-September are the highest peak season. End of September and all of October to the first of November are the low season. Our experts feel that if you want to spend a lot of time in the water and at the beach, that the best time would be June till mid September. April is way too cool, and May is getting warmer, the pools are heated starting in May at many hotels. The ocean is cooler than the Caribbean and Hawaii

April honeymoon in Greece

April is a great time to visit if you want to save money, avoid the crowds, and are not interested in lying on a beach all day swimming in the ocean. The ocean will be too cool for a swim (the water is not nearly as warm as the Caribbean or Hawaii) so the heated swimming pool, or Jacuzzi on your balcony would be perfect.

May honeymoon in Greece

May- May might be one of the best months to visit because it warming up around the islands, and still the busy season has not yet begun. Prices are still good, and the wild partying has yet to start. In May couples can start heading to the beach and take a swim without feeling like they stepped into an ice bucket!

June honeymoon in Greece

June- June is starting to heat up in Greece, and Athens especially can be brutally hot and challenging to be outside if you are sensitive to heat. The islands are more tolerable during this time, Mykonos is always a bit windy, yet the ocean is refreshing.

July, August and September honeymoon in Greece

July to mid-September- This is the very peak season of the Greek Islands, with July and August being the busiest of the three months. Couples can still enjoy the islands over the summer; however there are some pretty massive crowds in the more touristy areas of Santorini and Mykonos. Mykonos is by far the most crowded summer island with thousands of tourists and packed beaches. Cruise ships drop off thousands of tourists as well. We suggest couples consider other islands besides Mykonos in the summer such as Naxos, Ios or Paros which are not far from Santorini by ferry. Crete is also a nice option for the summer to avoid the crowds and save money.

October honeymoon in Greece

October- We love the month of October in Greece, the sun is shining, it is not too boiling hot, and the major crowds have subsided. The ocean is a little cool but very refreshing. The rates are a little lower and there are no line ups for dining or excursions, plus less traffic. You can go to Santorini until the end of October and still have a great time and get some sunshine, Mykonos until about October 17th is fine (most hotels close that week). Some of the other islands are fine to visit as well

Tips for peak summertime travel for the Greek Islands for your honeymoon:

Fly into Mykonos, and then take a quick 1 hour fast ferry to Naxos or Paros, which offer a more authentic Greek experience without the hordes of crowds and nudist sunbathers in Mykonos. Santorini is a must do and can be easily reached from Naxos or Paros. Ios is another good choice but does tend to be a party island for the younger crowds.

TRANSPORTATION to the islands

Many couples do not realize how many transfers and in-between flights or ferries are required, and ferries need to be booked well in advance. Booking with a travel agent is essential.

In destinations such as Greece, you typically will fly from Athens –> islands and then you can take ferries between islands depending on their vicinity to one another. We book ferries in Greece for you, which can be a very big challenge if you aren’t familiar with how travel works there.

Greece Honeymoon Budget:

Many couples fail to estimate how much they are going to spend. An expert travel agent can help you figure out what you will spend from personal travel experience to the islands. Depending on many circumstances, week-long (7 nights) stays in Greece during low season start at around $5500- 6000+ for airfare from larger airports, pre-arranged transfers included, and hotels. A week during high season (July to September) will be higher at least $7000+ for two, and a 10-12 night package with air will be in the $8-9000 range for two.

You will need to budget additionally for lunches/dinners/activities once there…and this does add up to about $2500-3000 for a week in Greece

Estimate at least $250.00 per day for two for food/drink depending on your own personal habits

Estimate between $50-150 per day for two for activities (museum passes, entrances to ruins, city tours, etc.)
