How to have a romantic honeymoon in Santorini?
Hike the paths of Santorini
Creating memories that will last a lifetime by exploring the breathtaking Caldera, the volcanic beaches, and the lunar landscapes during your honeymoon in Santorini. You can also enjoy romantic walks in Oia and Pyrgos, villages, and take in the beauty of the mesmerizing island. Santorini has many traditional paths which connect the villages. Nowadays they are still used by the inhabitants, as well as by the visitors, for hiking and exploring the Santorinian land.
Wandering through Oia’s pathways may be more appealing to those who do not enjoy hiking. Surrounded by the blue horizon overlooking the peaceful village is a great place to enjoy the sea breeze and gaze into the blue sky.
If you are specifically seeking a peaceful and more private place, Pyrgos village is your ideal choice. Nothing is better than walking while holding hands with your loved one on the scenic island of Santorini.
Booking a catamaran or private yacht cruise is an absolute must. Choose a tour around sunset time to ensure the atmosphere is as romantic as possible. It is a highlight of visiting Santorini to sail around the island with your beloved, so do not miss out on this delightful experience.
Dive into a Delicious Dinner and enjoy cocktails
The traditional Santorinian cuisine is worth experiencing, especially while enjoying stunning views. At least once during your honeymoon, be sure to indulge in a romantic dinner by candlelight during sunset at a restaurant with an amazing view over the caldera or the volcano.
Ultimately, the fastest way to someone’s heart is through their stomach! You can also enjoy your favorite cocktail in the natural landscape of Fira or Caldera cliff.
Sunbathe on Eros Beach
Eros is the Greek god of sensual love and desire. Naturally then, Eros Beach is one of the most romantic in Santorini. A quiet and private getaway surrounded by sheer white cliffs and covered with the typical black pebbly sand of Santorini. The waters are crystal blue and get deep quickly.
See the Heart of Santorini
The Heart of Santorini is a hole in a rock that is shaped like a heart lying on its side. It is a charming sight that creates an exquisite frame for views of the caldera. As a bonus, it is a spot not so widely known about yet, so the chances of you having the place to yourself are high.
Wine-making in Santorini dates years back. The local method involves cutting back the vines to almost ground level and weaving them into little baskets, in which the grapes grow protected from the harsh winds and volcanic sands. It is highly recommended to experiment
with Santorini’s unique wine-making process with your other half.
Visit the most romantic bookstore
The calming vibe of your honeymoon in Santorini sets the ideal setting for reading. Atlantis Books in Oia is the most picturesque bookshop on the island. The name is fascinating since Santorini was once considered to be the island of the lost Atlantis. You will find a collection of various books in English and several other languages.
In this “cave,” there are reading spots with the companion of music, an idyllic and fairy-tale scenery. An absolute must-visit if you and your partner are book lovers!
