Greece’s Santorini is truly one of the most incredibly romantic honeymoon getaway destinations in the world – and why wouldn’t it be with all that it has to offer? Honeymooning here is like a dream come true. When you have a chance (and how could you miss it?) be sure to see as much of the ocean as possible from the white sands of their many beaches and marvel at the shimmering shades of blues.

Go out to explore the hidden and private beaches that offer their own piece of heaven, and be sure to experience as many sunrises and sunsets as possible from any place with a view. Relax in the sun by the pool or the beach, indulge in the exquisite meals and fine wines, and exchange a kiss or two underneath Santorini’s sunset!

5 Places to Visit
Where to start? Santorini is full of some of the most amazing places in Greece, so be sure to experience as much of it as possible. Explore the ancient villages and iconic cities and then indulge in food and wine in some of the best restaurants on the island!

If you’ve imagined Santorini as a collection of white houses on the edge of a cliff overlooking the deep blue of the ocean, then Oia is the place to live out that fantasy! Perched on the edge of the caldera, Oia presents itself as a maze of narrow streets and breathtaking views – this unique experience is unlike anything else!

Amoudi Port
Food, food, and more food! For a romantic dinner with a spectacular view of the sunset, treat your significant other to an exquisite meal in Dimitris Taverna and finish it off by indulging in the local wine. Although the sunset is perfect company, dining by the water at any other time of the day is magical too!

Ancient Akrotiri
Away from the sun and the beaches there is a whole other side to Santorini! If you and your partner are interested in history, then a trip to the Akrotiri ruins is a must! The archaeological site presents a new and intriguing way to experience Santorini’s past. For some expert advice, consider a tour with Akrotiri Santorini Guided Tours.

This charming village is located at the heart of Santorini, and is conveniently close to the Perivolos and Perissa beaches. Take the day to explore the village and admire the ancient architecture (like the churches and the castles!) and take as many photographs as possible to capture these romantic moments!

Rim of the Caldera
Amoudi Port is perfect for a romantic dinner, but so is the rim of the caldera. It’s also the most breathtaking place for some spectacular views of the picture perfect sunsets. Pure magic!

5 Things to Do
Santorini, known as the ‘crown jewel of Greece,’ is one of the most unique and wonderful places to visit – and an incredibly romantic place for a honeymoon! It’s not hard to see why with all the amazing experiences on offer. So go ahead and have fun!

Make a Bucket List!
Before you really get started, fill up your bucket list with all the wonderful things you expect to do in Santorini. Include new and unique experiences, like sailing with Santorini Sailing to a private beach! If that’s not your thing, put down a wine tour with the Santorini Winery Tour and a private tour with Omega Travel Santorini.

Hike, Climb and Soar!
Santorini is rich in adventurous experiences – from jumping off the cliffs at Amoudi Bay to hiking the Fira Trail, and exploring the hot springs. Although the views from up high are just as stunning twenty-four hours a day, they’re just that more special at sunset! And to make the experience that much more exciting, consider riding a donkey up the mountain of Old Fira! Check out Santorini Car Hire for all your donkey-riding fun!

Hit the Beaches!
What is a Santorini experience without the beach? You will absolutely get a little sunburnt – but how else could you get that perfect Santorini tan? Rent a lounge and an umbrella from your hotel to avoid the worst of the heat, and then just kick back with your partner for a relaxing day admiring the shimmering blue of the ocean.

Watch the Sunset
Watching the sunset up high is one of the most amazing things in all of Santorini—especially if you get to see it bounce off the famous white houses in Oia. Watching the sunset is truly one of the most spectacular things to do in Santorini – next to their food! So why not combine them at a restaurant like Nichteri Restaurant.

Create a Unique Experience
Make Santorini your own! Test your limits on the edges of a cliff and experience new and exciting cuisine! Santorini is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and certainly an amazing place to visit to truly enjoy the Greek experience. You and your significant other can expect to return home with a tonne of memories (hopefully captured on film!) and a relaxed beachside glow!
