- Ride An ATV
If you and your partner decide to explore the island of blue tombed, whitewashed houses, then taking advantage of the ATV rides is a must. On-foot travelling and buses are good but not as thrilling as riding on an ATV especially when you have a better half to hold onto. Costing 30 Euros for one whole day, ride around the island of Santorini, from Fira to Oia to Imerovigli, and enjoy the cool breeze grazing your hair, giving a sense of absolute enjoyment.
- Watch The Magnificent Sunsets
A romantic getaway is not complete if you do not witness an astonishing sunset together. Luckily for the newlyweds, Greece is known for its marvellous nightfalls. Topping the list is the city of Oia in Santorini which is filled with spots where you and your better half can witness the breath-taking sunset views. Followed by this are Little Venice in Mykonos, Sounion in Attica, and Keri Lighthouse in Zakynthos that offer gorgeous views of sundown.
- Party in Mykonos
Generally, when speaking of honeymoon destinations, newlyweds are only able to experience enchanting sunsets, royal cruises, and magnificent structures, but a country that holds a whole package has a lot more to offer than these. An island of vibrance, Mykonos is a setting where you and your better half can indulge in having an unforgettable night of groovy music, delicious cocktails and delicacies with aesthetic views serving as a backdrop. A fun-filled night in Mykonos is a must to experience with your loved one.

- Cruise your way
A land of love complemented with deep blue seas calls out for a spectacular cruise experience. Santorini and Mykonos serve as popular islands in Greece.

SeaDream Yacht club, Windstar cruises, Crystal Cruises, Ponant and Star clippers are some of those cruises that will let the newlyweds hop from one island to another or smaller areas.
- Stroll On Movie Like Spetses
Serving as one of the most popular Greek islands for a romantic getaway is the charming Spetses.

From experiencing top-notch events such as the Armata Festival to exploring the turquoise beaches near The House of Bouboulina museum, this island is nothing less than a wonderland. So, hop on a ferry from Hydra or Poros and take advantage of this island, full of natural beauty.
