Santorini Saga

Let's start with the iconic Santorini. This postcard-perfect island instantly sets the mood for romance with its dramatic cliffs, whitewashed houses spilling down to the sea, and some of the most magnificent sunsets you'll ever witness.


Stroll hand-in-hand through the narrow lanes of Oia, stopping to admire the blue-domed churches and perhaps snap a photo framing the caldera's volcanic majesty. For an enchanting evening, find a delightful taverna with sweeping waterfront views to savor some local specialties like fresh seafood and creamy feta.

But Santorini has so much more to offer honeymooners. Embrace your adventurous side with a guided hike along the rim of the caldera, marveling at the layers of multi-colored volcanic rock face. Or visit one of the island's excellent wineries, where you can tour the underground cellars and savor exquisite Assyrtiko white wines infused with Santorini's distinctive terroir.

For a truly memorable splurge, book a couples' massage overlooking the caldera - as the Aegean breeze caresses your skin, you'll achieve a state of complete tranquility.

Crete Chronicles

To experience the more authentic side of Greek island living, journey to Crete - a magical island steeped in ancient history and traditions. Venture inland to hilltop villages like Arolithos which move at a blissfully relaxed pace. You'll quickly become enamored with the Cretans' warm hospitality as you feast on food straight from the land and sea, sip incredible local wines and raki, and absorb stunning views of mountain slopes meeting brilliant blue waters.

In Crete, make time to immerse yourselves in the island's rich heritage.

Explore the archaeological site of the ancient Minoan Palace of Knossos, where legends like the Minotaur and Labyrinth were born. Or visit the bright graves at Arkalokhori, wandering amidst vibrant wildflowers and witness traditional Cretan basket weaving and woodcarving firsthand. After a day of discovery, restore yourselves with a leisurely Greek coffee or plates of creamy dzatziki and fresh-baked bread at a family-run taverna.

Nightlife Nirvana

If you'd like a dose of energy and nightlife on your honeymoon, vibrant Mykonos beckons. The island's reputation for hip beach parties and chic scene is well-deserved, but Mykonos also charms with its iconic 16th-century windmills, rustic Cycladic architecture, and labyrinth of colorful streets made for wandering. Don't miss exploring Mykonos Town, where you can browse boutiques, people-watch from waterfront cafes, and discover wonderfully photogenic corners around every turn.

For a glamorous day in Mykonos, claim your patch of sugary sand on one of the famous beaches like Psarou or Super Paradise. Sip crisp Greek wines as you lounge on plush day beds, then join the pulsating beach party scene as the sun dips low. As night falls, the energy shifts to the island's upscale bars and nightclubs, where you can revel in romantic revelry until the wee hours.

No matter which islands you choose, you'll discover that the Greek Islands have an undeniable romantic essence. Wake up early to witness a soul-stirring sunrise over the Aegean. Cool off from the island sun with a dip in the sparkling sea. And of course, indulge in the flavors that make Greek cuisine so celebrated - fresh-caught seafood, inky olives, crisp greens, and honey-drenched baklava for dessert.

As night falls, the magic amplifies. Perhaps you'll share raki toasts and melodic Greek music at a family-owned taverna, dancers whirling in rapturous folk tradition. Or seek out secluded seaside spots to revel in stargazing, the inky tranquil night accented by the lights of distant islands and fishing boats.

Book your honeymoon in this island paradise, and unlock memories that will spark joy and romance for years to come.
