5 unique suggestions for your honeymoon

Alonissos ● Astypalaia ● Corfu ● Crete ● Koufonisi ● 10 August 2017
 

There are some Greek islands that are being typically suggested for a wedding in Greece or the honeymoon. On these islands, like Santorini, Folegandros and Milos, the scenery and the romantic atmosphere is truly amazing, but there is a great chance that you have visited them. Plus, the prices may be high because more and more couples choose them. Alternatively, if you search for your honeymoon destination in Greece, you can visit some islands that are not as widely known for the honeymoon as the abovementioned, but they can offer you something else: privacy and unique experiences away from the conventional romanticism, which may tire some honeymooners, who don't want to see all around people in love. These are off-the-beaten-path suggestions for your honeymoon. Enjoy and pack your suitcase for a different journey!

Koufonisi

Koufonisi in Cyclades is a totally alternative destination for your honeymoon. You won't find there luxury hotels and romantic guesthouses. The island, although it became touristic the last years, is virgin. Some rooms to let or traditional hotels by the sea, a few taverns with fresh fish and 4-5 bars either by the sea or in the narrow streets of the typically Cycladic Chora are the facilities you can expect. But what is really amazing with Koufonisi is that you can truly relax there. You can swim in stunning, emerald waters, be in contact with nature and forget stress. The island is tiny, and you can spend your day just walking around, admiring the astonishing sea and live your love with your other half.

Alonissos

Alonissos in Sporades is a low profile Greek island with lush greenery, wonderful beaches and traditional, well-preserved villages. In Alonissos, you will find the privacy you want for these precious moments of your life in a relaxing scenery. Furthermore, one of the greatest assets of Alonissos is the day trip by boat in order to see monachus monachus, the protected species of seal, which lives in the sea around Alonissos.

Astypalaia

Astypalaia is captured between two worlds. It belongs to the island complex of Dodecanese, but its heart beats for the style and aura of Cyclades. A Venetian Castle at the top of the hill, white-washed houses surrounding it and churches with blue domes make Astypalaia the island that combines the best characteristics of Dodecanese and Cyclades. Astypalaia can offer you the unspoiled atmosphere of an off-the-beaten-track island together with charming and impressive beauty.

Astypalaia


Corfu

Corfu is not an untouched by the tourism Greek island, but it has kept its nostalgic, charming character. Corfu Town is among the most beautiful and elegant cities in Greece, if not in Europe. Its traditional, Italian architecture, the neoclassical buildings and the well-preserved palaces give to Corfu Town a unique charm you will adore. There is no better place to stroll around hand in hand with your beloved one than in the old town of Corfu that will remind you of the most beautiful cities in Italy.

Crete

Crete is also a touristic island, but it can offer you some really private options. Accommodation in Crete has a great variety, and you can stay in all-inclusive hotels and luxury suites, where you will spend the whole day by the sea, swimming, drinking, eating, watching the sunset and living romantic moments with your other half. Elounda (Crete) is the ultimate destination for this kind of vacations, where you can relax, get rest and forget everything else.
