The Greek Islands are among the most popular destinations to spend your honeymoon. Especially Santorini, which has been attracting newlyweds from all over the world. You sure have seen Santorini's iconic chalk-white buildings with cobalt-blue domes on your Instagram feed numerous times. Now, it’s your turn to experience beauty! Stay at one of Santorini’s unique cave-style hotels like Divine Cave Experience, enjoy local wines, swim in the Aegean Sea, wander the streets of provincial villages, and catch the mesmerizing sunset that paints everything around pink and honey-gold. It's best to plan your Santorini honeymoon for spring, autumn, or early summer. This time of the year, the Greek Islands are less crowded.
