If you're looking for a few ideas for a true luxury Greek honeymoon, have we got some ideas for you!

Top 5 Greek honeymoon destinations

Santorini was created as the result of an enormous volcanic explosion that took place almost four thousand years ago. Today, the island is known as one of the best honeymoon destinations in the world because of its picturesque sunsets, white washed buildings, and quaint villages are easy to fall in love with.

Mykonos is an island full of life, colour, vibrancy, small cafes, restaurants, art galleries, and boutique shops. It has all the character and architecture of the Greek islands with a rich, cultural cosmopolitan feel. Be sure to visit the 16th century windmills, nearby Little Venice, and of course – the beaches. Hotel Cavo Tagoo is a small, upscale beachfront boutique hotel within walking distance of Mykonos Town and offers traditional Greek design with sleek contemporary lines and a sexy infinity pool overlooking the sea – a true honeymoon destination.

Rhodes is one of the largest of the Greek islands and also one of the most dynamic in terms of attractions and offerings for travellers: beaches, ancient archaeology sites like Lindos, medieval settlements, traditional villages, and castles. With over 300 days of sunshine per year, the island named the "Island of Roses" is an incredible Greek honeymoon destination. Located near Lindos, the Atrium Palace Thalasso Spa Resort offers romantic luxury honeymoons where guests can relax overlooking the secluded bay of Kalathos or enjoy a stimulating spa session at the resort's Anagenesis Thalasso Spa.

Crete is the largest of Greek islands with all kinds of terrain: from mountains to hillside pastures, remote farmlands, olive oil, coastal settlements, and of course, lots of beach real estate. The main highlights of the island include Chania, a bustling portside city with colourful shops and incredible seafood restaurants for a truly romantic dinner; Heraklion and the ancient archaeological palace of Knossos; the beaches of Ierapetra; and the popular Malia for British travellers.

Sifnos is one of the more little-known Greek islands but was best known in ancient times for its silver and gold mines. The island is easily reached by ferry from Athens and is a great spot for honeymooners because it is relatively quiet, less busy than other Greek islands, and a place to really relax and getaway from the busyness of life. Today, those looking for beaches stick to the Bay of Vathi, a rare quiet beach in the Cyclades. Those interested in history will enjoy Kasto, a well-preserved medieval town with ancient columns that seems like a living museum all its own.
