The perfect romantic honeymoon in Greece
is a private charter sailing cruise
. In most cases such a honeymoon will be cheaper than a land based version in a hotel in Athens
. But besides the costs, the most idyllic and romantic places can only be reached by yacht. Even a ferry wouldn't do (so-called island hopping), since these ferries infrequently dock at the commercial ports of the islands rather then at the more appealing areas in which you can find the lovely fishing ports and the important ancient greek archaeological sites and temples. In my point of view, especially these picturesque places will make for a romantic honeymoon Greece
When you require a skipper, there are two main options to choice from for your holiday cruise:
- A motorsailer (a gulet, caique gullet) that is a classical wooden vessel with captain, deck hands, hostesses and chef cook. Really oozes romance for your honeymoon and comes with all the luxury you require.
- The modern version, the megayacht or superyacht, which adds speed and grandeur with equal luxury for your romantic honeymoon in Greece.
Most honeymoons take place in the Cyclades and the Dodecanese (the Aegean Sea), the yacht charter bases are Samos, Kos, Rhodes, Paros, Syros, Lavrion and Athens. To widen your options also have a look at Fethiye, Bodrum and Marmaris from which you can take a Blue cruise or Blue voyages along the Dodecanese islands
and the Turquoise coasts of Turkey
. Similar, you could start your romantic honeymoon in Greece and explore the nearby turkish coasts as well.
The ideal length of such a cruise is certainly more than 7 days, at least 10 days and preferably 2 weeks.
