One of the most photogenic Greek islands is Santorini, which is a Greek wedding and honeymoon paradise. It is extremely beautiful and it is no exaggeration to say that Santorini is considered as one of the most romantic places in the world. What makes Santorini so charming that so many people choose it for the proposal, their wedding in Greece or/and their honeymoon? Weddings in Santorini are a must, so if you decided it, you may want to combine it also with the honeymoon afterwards.
The fascinating beauty and the atmosphere of Santorini attract many tourists, so if you want to spend your honeymoon away from the mass tourism, the best time of the year is May, June, September and October, in order to avoid the crowds and enjoy privacy.
In Santorini, you will never forget the white villages perched precariously on steep cliffs overlooking the sea in the volcanic caldera. You can sit with your beloved one forever enjoying the magnificent view in one of the luxury and romantic hotels with the honeymoon suites. See 10 Best Santorini honeymoon hotels from Tripadvisor
An unforgettable moment of your honeymoon will be the sunset, when you admire the sun sinking into the water and get lost in the magic of the gold Greek sunlight mirroring at the calm sea and brightening the volcanic hill. The sunset in Santorini is known as one of the most impressive sunsets in the world, and the best spots to watch it are the villages of Oia and Imerovigli. The white houses of Oia are the most characteristic picture of the village, and the pink reflection of the sun makes the scenery breathtaking. In Imerovigli, you catch the sunset at a higher point and enjoy an expansive view. Don’t miss out the sunset cruise excursion, which gives you the advantage not to be stuck to one spot but to chase the sun from the inside of the caldera.
But Santorini is worth a honeymoon journey not only for its sunset but also for the things you can do the rest of the day. Santorini has crystal waters and astonishing landscape. The natural setting and the dark volcano sand is something no one can forget. What the beaches lack in golden sand and emerald waters, they make up for with their impressive view and the imposing cliffs that surround them. Furthermore, Santorini has also significant museums and archaeological sites, such as Akrotiri, where you can learn about the Cycladic civilization and the culture of this amazing island.
Santorini is also worldwide famous for its culinary culture. A lot of cooking and wine tasting tours are being organized and include the visit of some local wineries and vineyards, where you can be informed about the wine-making process and then cook with a local chef and eat special dishes. Can you imagine a better way to show your love to your spouse than having dinner with him or her under the stars watching the moon mirroring at the waters of the caldera?
