If you are having your honeymoon in autumn or winter, naturally you go to Paris. If you are having your honeymoon in spring or summer, of course you come to Greece and the Greek islands!
What better place to spend a long relaxing day at the beach and then see the romantic sunset from a cliff top? Here are our suggestions with the top 5 honeymoon islands in Greece.
The tiny island of Hydra is found only 90min boat ride from Athens. The most special thing about Hydra is that no motor vehicles are allowed there and all transportation is done on foot. Locals also use donkeys and small boats. The stone mansions that are constructed amphitheatrically around the port give an amazing view in the day, while at nights the romantic lights create a romantic atmosphere.
One of the relaxing gems in the Ionian Sea, Kefalonia is large in size and provides wonderful honeymoon accommodations. We suggest you stay in villas on the southern side of the island, above the wonderful beach resorts of Skala, Lourdas, Lassi and Avithos. Of course, do not miss to rent a car and explore the marvelous villages of Assos and Fiscardo on the north, the exotic beaches of Myrtos and Antisamos, and the many sightseeing of the island.
With elegant Venetian architecture, green landscape and cosmopolitan style, Corfu is a great honeymoon place. The northern side of the island, especially the regions of Agios Stefanos and Kassiopi, has many villas to enjoy a private stay. The Old Town of Corfu amazes visitors at first sight and is ideal for sightseeing walks. Do not miss: the sunset from Loggas Beach!
The island with the Medieval touch. Rhodes is famous for the fabulous beach resorts, the beauty of nature and the Old Town. Lose yourself in the paved streets of the Old Town of Rhodes, walk up to the Acropolis of Lindos and swim in the exotic waters. Do not miss a visit to the Valley of Butterflies close to the village of Theologos and to the Medieval Springs of Kallithea.
