Romance, serenity, luxury, exorbitance; whatever you wish your honeymoon to be like, Greece is the place for your dream to come true. A Greek honeymoon is all you ever wished for.
Perfect weather, sunny skies, crystal clear waters are there awaiting for you. While in Greece, you must visit at least a couple world famous islands offering the ideal honeymoon package. Crete, Mykonos, and Santorini can be reached either by plane or ferry. Once you are there, make the most of it. Go on the island cruise or a sightseeing tour.
Santorini – the magic volcano island
During the day you can relax by the pool enjoying your refreshment, sipping your wine. Santorini has one of the best vineyards in the Aegean. Have your meals at an open air restaurant. There is a great variety to choose from. You must have a taste of the delicious traditional Greek cuisine, or if you are not in favor of new tastes, go for international dishes. At night the scenery takes a new face. Windy, narrow streets in the small towns and villages turn into vibrant, colorful pedestrian walks. Shops and clubs fill up with cheerful crowds and the party goes on until the early morning hours. When dawn breaks, everything falls asleep, and only a few early mornings “warms” may be seen roaming around.
However, you will find it difficult to stay in just one place. Every corner you turn, you see a completely different view more mesmerizing than the previous one. If you take a local boat to sail around the island, you will have the one and only opportunity to dive in the most crystal clear waters you have ever seen. You can sunbathe at a secluded beach, just you and your loved one. Soak in the warmth of the sun and refresh in the sparkling waters. You will experience the most treasured moments of your honeymoon in Greece.
On many Greek islands, like Santorini, you can travel back in time. Go on a donkey ride along the cobbled paths of the village. Escape from modern civilization and visit the old ruins. No matter how small the island may appear at first, you will soon realize one visit is not enough to absorb all that is offered to you so generously. A honeymoon in Santorini or Mykonos will be unforgettable.
Crete – the biggest island in Aegean
If you are looking for something more modern, a “city” away from the city, Crete being the largest island in the Aegean means it has a lot to offer for all tastes and budgets. You can settle in an elegant accommodation in one of its largest cities, Chania, Herakleio, or Rethymno. You can enjoy the comforts and facilities offered, at the same time you should visit the scattered villages along the coast or the ones nestled in the mountains. On Crete you can mix both the ancient civilization and the modern culture. You must visit the magnificent ruins of Knossos as well as the sandy beaches during the day and be entertained at local ‘tavernas,’ tasting local food to the sound of the fabulous and lively Cretan music and dance.
Once your honeymoon in Greece is over, you will find yourself planning for another trip to celebrate your anniversary.
