Sometimes, it feels like Greece was made for some lovin', doesn't it? From its history and heritage to its natural beauty, any couple won't help but fall deeper in love with each other when they're here. Specifically, when they're on the islands like Crete, Santorini, Folegandros, Hydra, and Paros. More than just the Mediterranean paradises, these are also some of the most romantic Greek Islands out there. They have a certain magic to them that makes them the perfect destinations for a honeymoon or a romantic getaway. If you're a couple, it's high time you learn more about these amazing islands!
! Though it's one of the largest islands of Greece and the entire Mediterranean, it remains one of the area's most romantic destinations. Take a look at its beautiful beaches
, Venetian towns, and rustic provincial lifestyle. Even when it gets pretty lively here, the energy is just enough that you and your special someone can still get lost in all the rural beauty. The whitewashed towns are signature Mediterranean charms, making you feel like you're relaxing on a postcard. And if you get lucky enough to score a fairly quiet spot on the island, you won't ever want to leave!
You can't have a list of Greece's finest islands without mentioning Santorini
. It's not one of the most popular destinations in the world for nothing! What sets Santorini apart from all the others is that it maintains a great balance between the provincial charms of the Greek countryside and the luxuries of the Mediterranean. For your accommodations, for example, you can either choose a room in one of the island's many five-star resorts or rent a luxury villa
for just the two of you. And don't worry about the crowds too! Santorini has countless hidden spots just waiting to be discovered.
Folegandros is perhaps the least-known out of all the Greek Islands on this list. But that doesn't make it any less romantic. In fact, some may argue that it's relative obscurity that makes it a perfect escape for couples. Even though it's fairly near Santorini, Folegandros is nowhere near as busy as that island. You can even say that it's a quieter version of the former, complete with the famous whitewashed towns and glittering coasts. But what you really ought to check out in Folegandros is the Church of Panagia! You might have to hike up to get there but all your efforts will be worth it!
Located in the Aegean Sea, any couple would do well to consider Paros as one of their top choices for a honeymoon destination. It's a quintessential Greek Island, complete with whitewashed towns, amazing beaches, incredible views, and more. Many might think that's far too ordinary to stand out but when you actually get to Paros
, you'll discover that it has its own set of charms. The bright bougainvillea flowers that decorate the streets, for example, are as Instagram-worthy
as ever. And the old-school taverns? A charming peek into the island's history and heritage! It's all truly fascinating!
Even though this island is named after the Greek god of war, you can still feel Eros's touch here on Hydra
island. Especially at night. Admittedly, there's not much to see in Hydra. Sure, it has its fair share of stunning coasts
and charming towns nothing really out of the ordinary. What you'll see here is what you can also expect in the other Greek Islands. But what does make Hydra such a great destination, even for couples, is its lively nightlife scene. The bars that line the dock to the other hotspots throughout the island, you can have the most fun at night here!
The Greek Islands make for the perfect destinations for a honeymoon, a romantic getaway, or even when you're single and you want to find someone new in your life. You need to especially focus on these five paradises too!
