When it comes to choosing honeymoon destination, the Greek islands are almost always on the top of most couples’ lists. The reason why this happens is the fact that the islands in the Aegean and the Ionian Sea are almost always listed among the most romantic destinations in the world, making them ideal for couples looking to celebrate their first days of being married and officially together forever. Islands such as Santorini and Mykonos are known all over the world for their unique beauty and romantic atmosphere and as such, they even attract hundreds of couples that choose not to just spend their honeymoon there, but also to get married there!
There is however one mistake that pretty much all couples seem to make when it comes to spending their Greek honeymoon on a Greek island: they stay on the same island for the duration of their honeymoon trip. Yes. You read that right! One of the worst mistakes that a couple can make during their honeymoon in Greece is to spend it all on one specific island. Why is that though? Why should someone visit more than one islands in Greece during his or her vacation or honeymoon there?
Each island is unique
Greece is rather small when compared to other European countries such as France and Germany, what it lacks in size however, it more than makes up for when it comes to variety of landscapes and atmospheres. There are literally hundreds of islands in Greece and almost no two are alike. Others, such as Santorini, are known for their unique features and natural beauty. Some, like Rhodes, are known for essentially transporting their visitors to another place and time because of their rich cultural heritage and architecture. Finally, there are even some islands, such as Mykonos, known for their parties and vibrant night-life. In other words, each Greek island has its own atmosphere and “style” which is why one should experience as many of them as possible during their trip to Greece.
Most of the islands are quite small
Another thing that one should know about the Greek islands before planning a honeymoon trip is the fact that most of them are really small. In fact, the most popular ones, namely Santorini and Mykonos, are nothing but two dots on the map. This means that they can be explored rather easily and quickly and one can see everything they have to offer in a just a few days. Now, it goes without saying that a couple during their honeymoon will find things to do even if they are bored of one place, but if this going to be your only trip to the Greek islands, why not make it count? Why not make it the experience of a lifetime?
The islands are pretty close together
The most famous islands of Greece are basically located next to each other. Granted, it will take you a couple of hours by boat to get to them, but getting to them is relatively hassle-free, fast and easy. It’s also quiet cheap too. One thing you should keep in mind is that many travel agencies offer cruises to the Greek islands and some even offer cruises specially designed for couples on their honeymoon. Those can be the best way to enjoy your honeymoon in Greece since they will take you to the most popular destinations, allowing you to experience them all and decide which is the most romantic. Also, if you don’t like a particular island – let’s say that the night-life of Mykonos is not too much to your taste and liking – you can just opt to stay on the boat!
