Before you go to Santorini, you’ll need to find somewhere to stay. There are many amazing hotels for you to choose from and these will all make your trip great. However, if you want to spend some more time alone with your new partner, you should take a look at the Villas in Santorini by Bluevillas. You’ll be absolutely memorised by the stunning architecture and the views of the Aegean Sea. You’ll even have your own private pool, so you won’t need to worry about finding a sunbed or listening to the unrelaxing noise of children playing. Staying in one of these Villas In Santorini is an absolute must for any couple who are wanting to get away from everything and enjoy a beautiful place. Make sure to look out for the different villas available and find your perfect getaway.
Although you might have enjoyed a little more than a glass of wine at your wedding, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t try some more paired with the sunshine and beautiful views. The good news is that Santorini has some great wines on offer, especially if you take a trip to one of their famous wineries. The volcanic soil helps to create some amazing tasting wine that you’ll love. We recommend looking at the Santowines Winery which is the largest and most famous winery in Santorini.
Fira is the capital of Santorini and is a great place to check out if you’d like to enjoy some shopping or bars. This is a very popular tourist destination, so you’ll find that it is quite busy, especially in the summer. Although this might not be ideal when it comes to having a relaxing holiday, you’ll be able to get a look at the island’s capital and do some holiday shopping.
If you’d like to take some time away from your private pool in the villa that you’re staying in, you’ll love the stunning beaches that Santorini has to offer. The beaches in Santorini are quite unlike the other beaches on the other Greek islands. The volcanic land means that they are lined with pebbles and red or black or white sand. The water is very clear and if you visit the famous Red Beach then you’ll even be able to swim in some water that is warm. We recommend trying out the beaches here if you want a unique experience.
If you are going to Santorini on your honeymoon, you’ll need to take a trip to the volcano. This island rests on an active volcano and so there are tours which let you get to see it up close. Although this volcano is active, it is dormant, so you don’t need to worry about the safety aspect. It’s really interesting to note that the crater of the Santorini volcano is actually in the middle of the sea, unlike other volcanos! These tours will also let you take a trip to the hot springs which is a must for anyone on their honeymoon looking for a relaxing experience.
If you are a couple who like to get out and explore when travelling, Santorini also offers some great hiking. Because of the structure of the land, there’s plenty of hiking available for you to try out. Take in the sights of this volcanic island when you hike from Fira to Oia. There are lots of traditional Greek buildings and chapels for you to look at, so we definitely recommend this. If you can take the time to do a hike while on your honeymoon, you’ll have some amazing memories and stunning photographs to go with them.
Overall, we think that Santorini offers a lot for those who want to have a relaxing time on their honeymoon. The villas will provide you with the perfect getaway and you’ll be able to take boat tour if you feel like getting out and about. The beautiful weather will have you bronzed and your pictures will have everyone at home jealous. Taste the amazing authentic Greek cuisine while you visit the many wineries on offer. This is the perfect honeymoon location and you won’t be disappointed if you book your trip here today!
