What Are the Best Greek Islands for Couples?
After asking a lot of coupes which Greek island is their favorite we made a list of the five most visited islands in Greece. Here is the list:
But, if you are in doubt to visit the Greek islands or not here are the 15 Reasons To Visit The Greek Islands.
1. Santorini Island
When people think about Greece and the islands they immediately have a picture of the white and beautiful island of Santorini.
It’s the perfect place for honeymoon goers and couples to spend their time on this amazing island. With many small churches and fantastic sunset views, Santorini will leave you breathless.
This amazing island has one of the best hotels on the islands and one of our favorite ones for couples are Grace Santorini in Imerovigli and Katikies Hotel in Oia.
If you want to have one of the best sunset views you should definitely book a room in Astra Suites. The pool is amazing and the views are one of the best on the island.
2. Zakynthos Island
While Santorini is the perfect place for couples and we believe it’s the best choice, there is the small island of Zakynthos that you should definitely not avoid.
Zakynthos is famous for the clearest water and the perfect sandy beaches will make sure your other half will be pleased to the maximum. Amazing little villages and the Greek food to die for Zakynthos island is a perfect combination if you want to spend your time on a Greek island.
It’s also famous with the younger generations as a party destination so if you want to dance all night you can do that also on Zakynthos. Don’t forget to visit Navagio Shipwreck and make sure you spot the famous Caretta-Caretta turtles that are breeding on the beaches of Zakynthos.
If you are wondering where to sleep on Zante then our personal recommendations are Eco Resort Zefyros, Palatino Hotel, and Lesante Luxury Hotel and Spa.
Either one of these will make your holiday with your loved one unforgettable.

If you are a couple that loves to enjoy the beaches, many restaurants, and amazing sunsets than Mykonos is the perfect destination for you.
