Choosing Greece as a honeymoon destination is guaranteed to add to the romance of your trip as a newly married couple. Greece offers delights that will excite your eyes, your taste buds, and your sense of adventure. Here are some Greece honeymoon destinations ideas.

Santorini

Santorini Island is as unique and exciting as your honeymoon should be. Santorini was the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions ever recorded in the world. The result of this eruption created an island that is unlike any you will experience elsewhere.

The beaches of Santorini Island are not only distinctly different from each other, but from those you’ll find anywhere in your travels. Red Beach is one of the most beautiful in Santorini. It features warm water and red and black pebbles. Cliffs of varying colors surround Red Beach.

When enjoying your honeymoon in Santorini, you’ll want to visit the small village of Oia. This romantic setting is home to charming restaurants that offer breathtaking views. Enjoy a local wine that has been made with grapes grown in volcanic soil giving it a unique taste. A walk through Oia, especially during sunset, is the perfect way to end an evening.

Mykonos

Mykonos is another romantic honeymoon destination. In addition to the beautiful beaches, traditional architecture, and walkable streets that are filled with places to eat and shop, you can expect to enjoy a wonderful hotel experience and magnificent sunsets. Mykonos is known for Super Paradise Beach where people who enjoy crowds, music, and partying enjoy spending time.

Little Venice in Mykonos is the ideal spot for the couple who wants a taste of Italy. The two-story Venetian-style buildings at the seafront of Mykonos Town will not disappoint. If you decide to stay in Little Venice for a night, the sunset from any of the terraces in the area will make the perfect spot to watch the sunset while sipping a glass of wine and toasting your new life together.

Corfu

Choosing Corfu as a honeymoon destination offers a number of beaches and landmarks to visit. Glyfada Beach, though popular and crowded, should be on your to-do list. The calm water and view make it worth your while. Dassia Beach is smaller and thanks to its proximity to the town area, allows access to shops and restaurants.

Sidari, on the northern coast of Corfu, is home to the Channel of Love (“Canal d’Amour). Swimming through this passage as a newly married couple is a once in a lifetime and very romantic experience. For a touch of history, visit the Achillion Palace, the Church of Saint Pyridon, or Paleokastritsa Monastery.

Crete

Crete makes a memorable honeymoon destination for the adventurous, nature loving couple who enjoy long hikes. Samaria Gorge is the longest gorge in all of Europe and is home to a variety of flora and fauna. Ravens, hawks, and owls call the cliffs home. The Cretan wild goat is the most well-known resident of Samaria Gorge. Flowers, trees, and shrubs will capture your eye during your hike.

There is also an incredible variety of things you can do here, such as spend the day on the beach, enjoy the nightlife, go shopping, and see some of the most memorable sites. For example, the Palace of Knossos is a place that you will love to spend some time because it shows just how historical the island really is.

Athens

Athens is a favorite destination for tourists and can make a great honeymoon spot. It’s a city that flawlessly combines the old with the new. The markets and bazaars of the central market at the Agora will provide hours of strolling, exploring, and shopping. The Ancient Agora is also worth a visit as it used to serve as the political, social, and commercial center of the city. The Acropolis is a must-see when in Athens. Apart from the breathtaking architecture, the view of the surrounding area is spectacular. A boat trip to Hydra Island makes for a wonderful day trip.

You should definitely consider visiting Greece for your honeymoon. There is so much to do here that you won’t regret it.
