Is there a country more romantic than Greece? Sure, there are countless places all over the world that are known for their romance and all, but there's something about this country, particularly its popular Greek Islands, that really oozes romance. The stunning island of Kefalonia is a good example. From the beaches to the villages, a lot of places on this island are perfect for a romantic getaway. It'd even make for a great honeymoon destination too! Why? Because Kefalonia offers a ton of romantic things to do. These five are arguably the best.
Escape To A Remote Beach
Is there a place more romantic than a remote beach? Think about it: a vast expanse of sand and sea that's all your own. Whether you spend an entire day or even a whole month here, you'll feel like you're the only two people in the world. And Kefalonia has tons of remote beaches
to spare, each more beautiful than the next! There's Dafnoudi beach, for instance, known for its gradient sea of aqua jewel tones. The Platia Ammos beach, on the other hand, with its stunning crescent-shaped shoreline, is a natural wonder the likes of which you won't see anywhere else!
Cycle Along The Coasts
While you're already at the coasts of Kefalonia island, apart from just relaxing on the beach and swimming in the sea, a scenic bike ride would definitely help your romance blossom more. Fortunately, as a means of public transport
, there are a ton of bike rentals in Kefalonia. You can easily get one each and spend the entire afternoon just cycling along the shorelines of the Greek island. This is better to do if you went here around spring or autumn, where the heat isn't as extreme and the salty sea breezes will waft against your face.
Sail Away on The Ionian Sea
Speaking of renting, did you know that you can also rent a boat in Kefalonia? If you want to get to another part of the island by sea, or perhaps even the other Greek Islands that are nearby as well, sailing away on your own (or rented) boat will do the trick. You can make a holiday of it, packing along some delicious local delicacies
,especially homemade wine, and playing music to set the right mood. Moreover, imagine how stunning the Mediterranean sunset would be when you watch it from your boat on the Ionian Sea! Now that's romantic!
Stroll Through Assos
Although Kefalonia's towns
are all charming and beautiful in their own right, Assos is just on another level. This coastal village, famous for its pastel-hued homes and the stunning isthmus that’s surrounded the Ionian Sea, are all kinds of breathtaking. Viewing it from a distance alone will make you feel some sort of way. And when you get to the town yourself, you can walk hand-in-hand as you marvel at the colorful streets, the bougainvillea-ladened alleyways, and the secret corners that are perfect for a romantic rendezvous. How's that for a honeymoon experience you won't soon forget?
Go On A Wine Tour
Nothing gets you in the mood quite like wine, right? Just once sip and you won't be able to stop, especially if it's produced in Kefalonia. Although the island's own homemade bottles aren't exactly the most popular in the world, they're good enough for a pair of lovers who are here for a honeymoon or for a simple romantic getaway. What more if you see how they're made by going on a wine tour of Kefalonia? See the marvellous vineyards and taste local wine that they produced themselves. At the end of the day, you'll be intoxicated, not just by the wine, but by the charms of the island as well!
Kefalonia has huge potential to be a popular honeymoon destination someday. The island is such a romantic hotspot, not just by how beautiful of a paradise it is, but that there are so many things you can do as a couple here too!
Of course, spending some quality time with your significant other in your luxury home
is another great romantic thing to do here in Kefalonia. It makes all the difference!
