Blessed with abundant beauty, a honeymoon in Greece has everything you need for a perfect romantic journey! While many couples will ‘fly and flop,’ there is so much to explore in this ancient land.

Extraordinary Santorini is usually at the top of any Greek bucket list. This volcanic island, the most photographed area of Greece, with some of the world’s most scenic sunsets over the caldera, will take your breath away.

Neighbouring islands are not to be missed either. Usually the next on the list is Mykonos, Greece’s party equivalent to Ibiza or Miami, the playground of the rich and famous during the summer with beautiful beaches, boutiques and glamorous nightlife. We love the lesser-known Cyclades islands like Paros, Tinos, Folendangros, Milos and Sifnos to name a few where you’ll find sandy beaches, whitewashed buildings, and family-run tavernas where you can drink red wine and feast on the freshest Mediterranean food. An island hop is a must.

Athens, with the Acropolis looming large, is one of Europe’s most underrated cities with incredible museums, street art, dining and nightlife. You can easily explore the mainland or take a short ferry to idyllic car-free islands like Hydra. There are much bigger islands too, such as Crete and Corfu, with beautiful beach coves, archaeological sites, picturesque towns, and stunning boutique hotels.


The best time to visit Greece a honeymoon is from April to October when the weather is warm. From July to August the weather heats up with temperatures reaching up to 40°C / 100°F on the mainland, although the islands benefit from sea winds during the summer. During winter, it can be cooler with average temperatures in Athens of 10°C / 50°F (many tourist towns quieten down and some hotels and restaurants will shut).


Is Greece good for a honeymoon? Yes, it’s perfect for a beach honeymoon with lots of great food, culture and history.

How long do you need for a honeymoon in Greece? We recommend at least 10 -14 nights to explore the country and island-hop.
