Meanwhile, there is so much to do for newlyweds on this idyllic island. Read on to discover the five best ways to spend your honeymoon in Santorini, Greece.
1. Book a private tour of Santorini
Group tours can be fun on a normal holiday in Santorini. However, for a little more money, honeymooners can experience a private tour of the island. This way you can see all the sights on a romantic Santorini honeymoon with a knowledgeable guide, without anyone else hanging around.
2. Wine tasting in the Greek Islands
When in Santorini, do as the locals do – experience the delicious local wines on an official wine tasting tour. Raise a glass to each other at one of the island’s wineries, without the need of a designated driver, while making sure the tour includes Santo Winery with its incredible views.
3. Enjoy a romantic catamaran cruise
Instead of spending time with the crowds on one of the big tourist boats, book a private catamaran cruise around Santorini. Among the options available you can choose a romantic dinner cruise, or just take to the water for an hour or two, marveling at the views of the island along the way.

9. Take a helicopter ride over Santorini
For the ultimate in luxury, enjoy a helicopter ride over the island and the caldera, seeing all the beautiful sights from the air. If you have plans to visit another island, for instance Mykonos, combine the trip, then take a boat ride back to Santorini at the end of the perfect day.
