Honeymoon destinations in the Greek Islands
The Greek islands have to be the most romantic of honeymoon locations – after all, this is the land of Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, and the islands are awash with romantic myths and legends. We at The Co-operative Travel have honeymoon packages in the Greek islands that will take you to the very birthplace of the Gods.
When you’ve just spent hundreds – maybe thousands – of pounds on the wedding of your dreams, you want a honeymoon location to match it. Yet an exotic honeymoon thousands of miles away isn’t always on the cards. This is why the Greek Islands make such wonderful honeymoon destinations. They offer the ultimate in luxury and romance – at a very low price.
Where to book your island honeymoon
The only problem with Greek honeymoon packages is deciding where to go. Should you stay on the ancient Isle of Crete, birthplace of Zeus, father of Aphrodite? Or how about Samos, home to Hera, Goddess of Marriage? Not surprisingly, the temple forms a popular backdrop for couples booking wedding packages abroad.
Greece was where great romantic poets like Lord Byron came for inspiration, and practically every island has crumbling, romantic ruins dedicated to some god or other. Lush green Corfu may not be rich in antique treasures, but its lavish sunsets and tumbling cascades of wild flowers are entwined with the language of love, making it a popular honeymoon destination for those booking spring weddings.
You need to think carefully about the time of year you’re getting married. If you’re having a summer wedding, you may find the lush green Ionian islands of Corfu, Zante and Kefalonia more to your taste than the hotter, drier Dodecanese islands such as Kos and Rhodes, which lie closer to the Turkish mainland. In winter, though, these are the islands that stay the warmest.
Feeling the heat – in more ways than one
Booking a honeymoon near the Greek mainland gives you the chance to hop from island to shore, exploring sites like the temple of Aphrodite, in the village of Aphrodisias – surely a “must see” on any honeymoon itinerary. Honeymoon destinations in the Sporades or Saronic islands are best for this and Skiathos is popular.
If you are looking for a luxury honeymoon destination with plenty of nightlife, then chic, cosmopolitan Mykonos, in the Cyclades, is for you. However, if you’re looking for something strikingly different, then a honeymoon package on the volcanic island of Santorini is on the cards.
We at The Co-operative Travel have honeymoon locations in all the popular Greek islands, giving you a honeymoon package that’s both affordable and memorable.
