It is probably one of the top 3 islands in the world! The landscape, which has been caused due to the volcano activity thousands of years ago, together with the white villages that are perched on cliffs overlooking the sea, the astonishing sunset and the luxurious hotels make this island our number one recommendation for honeymooners!

It is combined nicely with Naxos, an island with beautiful and mountainous mainland and stunning sandy beaches! You can find our complete travel guide about Naxos here!

In addition, the cosmopolitan character and the amazing nightlife is an extra plus!

Do not forget to visit one of the Unesco World Heritage sites in Greece (you can find the complete list here), Delos, which is very close to Mykonos.

Near Mykonos is also Tinos, with nice food and in the past was famous for its glorious religious tourism! But nowadays, Tino’s secret has been revealed and many have started to visit this island for the tranquillity that it offers and its beautiful beaches.

Rhodes and Kos

They are relatively close to its other and they are accessed easily as they both have international airports with hundreds of connections.

Rhodes has the old medieval city (another Unesco World heritage) and beautiful mainland and beaches.

Kos has also nice sandy beaches, great history (it is the birthplace of Hippocrates – the Father of Modern Medicine) and luxurious hotels.

If you select Kos, you can visit quite easily Kalymnos and then Leros (a real hidden gem) and then if you have time Patmos!

If you select Rhodes, then it is quite easy to visit Nisiros and stunning Symi (you can check our mini travel guide about Symi here!)

Another destination that you should consider is Athens. It might not be one of the most beautiful capitals in Europe, but it is one of the oldest capital for sure. It has an incredible history and we think that at least 2 days stop in Athens would be great! There many different things that you can do and nice museums that you can visit or you can just walk around the narrow alleys and get lost in time! You can check our list of the best hotels in Athens and select the best hotel for your amazing honeymoon!

What is the best time to visit Greece for a honeymoon?

I would say that June to end of August is a very touristy period and quite hot!

Probably May and September would be ideal for a honeymoon in Greece as it is still quite warm and without the buzz of the crowds you can relax and have one of the most romantic moments in your life!

  1. Spring is also great time to travel. The sun is hot but temperatures stay still quite low. Unfortunately, the sea may be too cold for swimming in Greek islands.

    • You are quite correct Niko! Especially if you visit south Greece, like Crete, Rhodes, Santorini etc, spring is very nice. But in North Greece the past years, the weather can be quite unpredictable with rain and winds.
