One of the world’s most famous honeymoon destinations, Santorini is perhaps the most famous and distinctive of the Greek islands. Iconic for its blue domes that dot the coast of the caldera, and a clifftop so dramatic it seems unfathomable that so many hotels and homes have been perched precariously upon it. It is a destination to without guilt spend whole days by the pool, only breaking for a long lunch in the restaurant next door. Come evening, you will want to be in the best position possible for one of the world’s most famous sunsets – fortunately, from the caldera side of the island, it is impossible to miss.
With not much space to afford large complexes, boutique hotels are the order of the day, with a maximum of twenty rooms apiece, which only adds to the romance of the destination. The joy of the island is how slow-paced it is, giving newlyweds the opportunity to relax after their big day in a beautiful setting. That being said, should you get itchy feet there are a handful of things worth doing – hikes along the cliff tops, exploring black and red sand beaches, visits to up and coming vineyards for tours and tastings or a private sunset cruise along the coastline for the ultimate Santorini evening.
