8 Reasons to Honeymoon in Greece

Santorini

Greece consists of over a thousand islands, only a fraction of them inhabited. From the party capital Mykonos to the more sober Crete island – there is one for every taste, but the flavours of Greece together conjure up an experience of romance, fit for novels.  If the pristine white structures with bright blue domes and cobbled streets (perfect for those stolen kisses) don’t kindle a deep bond of love, nothing will.

Feels like Heaven: I’m thinking of a that gorgeous song in the movie Bang Bang! I’m thinking the goddess-like Katrina Kaif, wearing white flowy dresses and the Greek God with six pack abs, Hrithik Roshan dancing to a backdrop that is as stunning as they are together. Now imagine you and your-spouse-to-be in that same divine location. Hand-in-hand, overlooking the sapphire waters of the Aegean sea in Santorini, picture perfect.

Enter a Postcard: The Greek islands present such splendid beauty, you might have to pinch yourself to believe you’re actually there, and not in a heavily photoshopped version of something ordinary. Spend some time at the birthplace of Zeus – the king of the gods – at the island of Crete, replete with some of the most beatific beaches in the world. If you love music, catch a concert at the Ionian island of Zakynthos, brimming with nature in all its unspoiled beauty.

Enjoy the Warmth: If you’ve seen The Big Fat Greek Wedding, you know what I’m talking about. Family is at the centre of Greek culture, and the people of these islands are more than happy to welcome tourists. The food is only one expression of the hospitality there is on offer, and what a delicious expression it is! Warm locals, present a wonderful opportunity to add that extra dimension to your travel – the possibility to enjoy the country as a local and really become at home on a holiday.

Affordable Luxury: It’s no secret that Greece’s economy is in trouble. Most experts believe, with the plunging Euro, now is the best time to plan a trip to Greece. You may think you’re doing their economy a favour, but in reality, they’re changing your idea of beauty for life.

At Home, at Sea: With so much to offer, you may want to go island-hopping and see  the Aegen sea in a way, not many have experienced. Watch the waters turn turquoise, then sapphire and pristine blue as you go from one island to the next.

A Sip of Wine: Wine is a big part of European culture, and so it is home to some of the finest you’ll ever sip. Santorini is home to the oldest vineyard in the world, making a wine-tour a must-do while there. A great way to taste some divine ‘Santorini’ white wine and meet a lot of wonderful people, you wouldn’t want to miss this.

Experience the Buzz: Mykonos, the most popular of the Greek islands is home to some of the best bars and clubs in Greece. Unwind to some great music and even better wine under the stars and meet some of the most diverse set of people from all over the world.

Steeped in History: Every history book you’ve ever read, be it The Odyssey, or historical movie you’ve seen finds a mention of Greece. These islands are steeped in history. Make time to visit the ruins of Acropolis in Athens and feel history come alive. Plan a day trip from Athens to UNESCO World Heritage site Delphi, one of the most important archaeological sites in the world.
