Your husband surprised you with tickets to Santorini and you leave in a couple of days. Here’s how you can spend an unforgettable honeymoon in one of Greece’s most beautiful places!

Where to stay

There is no shortage of wonderful hotels to stay in Santorini. From Oia to Fira, you can book a room for every budget.
Fira is the place to stay if you want to spend your nights partying and socializing. There are countless bars and clubs that will ensure you’ll sweat off that second piece of wedding cake. There is also the magnificent caldera for you to sit and watch the famous sunset of Santorini.
If you want a more quiet choice for your stay, Oia is the answer. With an air of luxury and finesse it will take your breath away. Again, the sunset is amazing there too.
The perfect place for honeymooners is Firostefani to the north of Fira. It’s a small village on the cliff with a view that will renter you speechless. A spectacular view to the volcano this village is filled with luxury hotels and apartments with balcony pools you wont want to step out off!

What to eat

You will not have any trouble finding good food in Santorini. With top chefs and fresh produce and fish, you will definitely be satisfied.
Try all the local delicacies and bond over food and great wine. Relax, if you drink one more glass, your husband will make sure you’ll get back to the hotel in one piece. That’s one of the perks of married life after all!
Don’t forget to try the honey and sesame glazed peanuts and pair them with a red sweet wine as dessert. Take it from me, it’s a game changer!

Where to swim

Santorini will not bore you! With a wide variety of beaches, you just have to hop on your rented car and visit one. You can even choose them by color: red, black and golden! A hat, a good sunscreen and a bathing suit is all you need. In some of the beaches the bathing suit isn’t required.
The most famous one is the red beach near the Akrotiri village. A definite must see!
