Romantic Greek Getaways for Couples
Are you searching for a romantic retreat for you and your significant other? Then Greece is the perfect destination for a romantic break away. Surrounded by numerous picturesque islands, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to white washed buildings, crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches, Greek tavernas and breathtaking sunsets.
The Greek Archipelago
Whilst there are 6,000 islands dotted around the Aegean and Ionian seas, only 227 are actually inhabited by locals. So if you need a little help on deciding which one of those 227 islands you should visit first, then let our experts at Going Luxury help you by providing you with a list of some of our favourite romantic spots in Greece.
The Island of Santorini traditionally serves as a destination for honeymooners who are looking for infinity pools and luxury hotels. But with its picture-perfect sunsets and dramatic views across Oia, this island can also serve as a beautiful place to escape for some rest and relaxation with your other half, whether you chose to celebrate a special occasion or simply escape life’s everyday stresses.
All the Rhodes Are Still Leading Me Towards You
Rhodes offers the perfect blend of history, ancient ruins, colourful bougainvillea, sandy beaches, romantic sunsets and cobbled streets where you can enjoy a stroll around several boutiques with your loved one.
Crete may be one of Greece’s largest islands, but that doesn’t make it any less charming. If Venetian Gondolas and the idea of sipping a glass of Prosecco by a harbour in Venice is your thing, then don’t miss the opportunity to watch the colourful array of boats whilst the sun sets over Rethrymnon.
The Island of Corfu is the perfect place for couples who wish to indulge themselves in glorious sunsets, picturesque views, endless sandy beaches and boat trips. This island is steeped in history that has been influenced by Venetians, the French and the British resulting in a multicultural destination that offers something for everyone.
Classy Cephalonia (Kefalonia)
Fascinated by history? Then Kefalonia is the perfect place to step back in time. This little Isle is packed full of magnificent monasteries, charismatic churches and charming castles. If you want to discover the romantic side to this island with your loved one, then make sure you pay the village of Sami a visit – one of the filming locations for Captain Correli Mandolin (a film inspired by the famous earthquake that struck the island in 1953).
Despite having a reputation for being a lively resort full of nightclubs and bars, the island of Zante is also home to one of the Mediterranean’s longest beaches making it the ideal retreat for couples who wish to soak up some sunshine. For couples who are feeling competitive there are also several arcades and bowling alleys, where you can challenge your partner to a game or two. If it’s a more relaxed vibe that you are after, then Zante also offers boat trips to a nearby turtle island where you can learn everything there is to know about turtle conservation along Gerakas Beach.
Kalamata – Endless Possibilities
From the endless cafes, restaurants, bars and chic gatherings after sundown, to the 5 km beach, folk museums, 19th century churches and art shops. There are many sides to Kalamata, making it the perfect blend of relaxation and action. Situated between the peaks of Mt Taygetos and the bay of Messinia, Kalamata really is a city that offers its guests an endless list of possibilities.
