    Tips for planning your Greece vacation

    Oia, Santorini (#16 below)

    Just a few more tips before starting this list of the best Greek islands to visit!

    • These islands are very seasonal! Shops, restaurants and many hotels shut down over the winter months. April – October is the extended season for travel, although you’ll find more options for hotels, flights and ferries from June – September.
    • Consider a cruise to make the most of your time. A Greek island cruise will take you to multiple places without having pack, unpack and worry about transportation details. Read this Celestyal Cruises review to see which islands I visited during my cruise!
    • Carry cash with you. Many shops and restaurants don’t take cards, so having euro is handy for your couples holiday to Greece.

    Best Greek islands for couples

    It’s time to start planning the ultimate couples holiday to Greece. But, how will you decide which dreamy Greek island to visit first?! Let’s start the list off with one of my faves…

    1. Milos

    One of the best Greek islands for couples to visit is Milos! Part of the Cyclades, it’s a great island to visit and spend a week in full relaxation. This charming island has two main villages, Andamantas and Plaka, which are perfect for sitting at a café or grabbing dinner and then seeing the local sights. 

    The must-see spot on the island, and one that every tour bus and Aegean Sea cruise recommends is Sarakiniko, AKA Moon Beach. This unique rock formation along the edge of the sea truly looks like a part of another world! Wear some grippy water shoes to walk along the coves, soaking in the sights.

    Couples will love beach-hopping in Milos, too. Plathiena Beach offers many amenities in the summertime, and is a great way to spend the day.

    Another stunning, although tricky to get to spot is Tsigrado. You can view it from above, or climb the ladder to the cove and enjoy the waves. Nearby is Fyriplaka, which is a long beach with ample parking. Enjoy scenic views of the Andaman Sea and the colorful rocky shoreline.

    There aren’t large hotel chains on the island, which is part of the appeal! Couples will love staying in a vacation rental property throughout the island or in Plaka. Be sure to grab brunch on the rooftop café En Plo, which has beautiful views of Milos!

    A rental car is the best way to see Milos. To get to Milos, it’s just a short 2.5 hour ferry ride from Athens, making it a really convenient option on this list of the best islands in Greece for couples.

    You’ll want at least 2 full days to see the highlights, but a relaxing week-long holiday or honeymoon is perfect for this dreamy island in Greece!

    2. Zakynthos (a favorite on this list of best Greek islands to visit)

    Stunning water and coastline of Zakynthos

    Zakynthos is undeniably deserving of a spot of this list of best Greek islands for couples to visit. With its pristine beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters, and breathtaking sunsets, this Greek island offers a truly romantic escape with so much to see and do in Zakynthos

    Whether it’s strolling hand in hand along the shoreline, exploring hidden coves, or indulging in candlelit dinners overlooking the sea, Zakynthos creates moments of pure magic and enchantment that couples will cherish forever.

    Embark on an unforgettable morning couples’ adventure! Rent a boat for 3-5 hours and discover the stunning caves and waters of the mesmerizing Ionian Sea.

    Swim and snorkel in the crystal clear water and head to Cameo Island. It is well-known as a haven for turtles. For an exceptional experience, we suggest Fun at Sea as they offer top-notch services at great value.

    To reach Zakynthos International, you have two options. Firstly, you can take a 1-hour flight from Athens. Alternatively, you can hop on a ferry from Kyllini in mainland Greece to Zakynthos, which will take approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.

    The Ionian Hill Hotel has stunning views from your room balcony and pool terrace overlooking the Ionion Sea. The hotel is small and intimate which is perfect for couples looking for a romantic break.

    3. Ithaca

    Perfect couples holiday to Greece: Gidaki Beach, Ithaca

    The island of Ithaca, in the Ionian Sea, is one of Greece’s most underrated spots. It’s known for its dramatic landscapes, clear waters, and picturesque villages. Across the island, you’ll find hidden beaches, beautiful hikes, and some of the tastiest food in the country. 

    One of the prettiest and romantic villages on the island is Kioni: a scenic spot with colourful houses scattered across its hillsides.

    Grab a coffee and an ice cream from one of the charming cafes, then hike up to the nearby viewpoint to view the village from above. Ithaca is the best Greek island for couples who desire a variety of activities.

    For a romantic night out, venture out to Nikos Tavern in Vathy, where you can sample authentic moussaka and fresh Greek salads. Once you’ve finished your meal, stroll down to the waterfront to admire the mix of sizeable yachts and humble fishing boats. 

    Ithaca is home to plenty of secluded coves that will allow you to stake out a stretch of sand for yourselves. It could even be the best place in Greece for couples who love the sea!

    But if you’re not beach people, there’s plenty of activities to sign up for. Renting a scooter will allow you to cover the island from top to bottom, from the ruins of Odysseus Palace to the Pyramids of Exogi.

    Reaching paradise isn’t too complicated, either. While Ithaca doesn’t have an airport, the nearby island of Kefalonia does, and a ferry ride from there will take just over two hours. If you’re coming from the mainland, you’ll be taking a four-hour ferry across from the port of Patras.

    The best time to visit Ithaca is during the shoulder season: May, June, and September are all equally delightful. At this time of year, you can expect temperatures in the mid-20s and prices that are lower than in July and August.

    Greece can be an expensive country to travel to during those peak summer months, so if you can cut those prices down, it’s worth doing so.

    One of the most romantic guesthouses on the island is Familia, in the heart of Vathy. A beautiful boutique hotel, Familia offers up modern, stylish furnishings along with welcoming staff, a delicious breakfast, and a seriously comfortable bed.

    Ithaca is by far one of the best Greek islands for couples with its beautiful scenery, romantic villages and picturesque hillsides.

    4. Tinos (underrated gem on this list of best islands in Greece for couples)

    Adorable streets in Tinos Town 😍

    Tinos is among the less touristy and quieter Greek islands and therefore one of the best Greek Islands for couples looking for a relaxing and romantic holiday.

    It’s located in the Cyclades archipelago close to the islands Andros, Mykonos, and Delos and can be best reached by ferry from any of these islands or from Athens.

    Empty sandy beaches, picturesque villages, and the most friendly and warm-hearted people – that’s the best way to describe Tinos. The island is full of exciting and romantic places waiting to be explored!

    One place that needs to be included when visiting Tinos is the capital called Tinos Town (Chora). Its promenade is perfect for a leisurely stroll, especially in the evening to experience a romantic sunset. It’s also home to some of the best restaurants on the island. 

    One of the delicious restaurants is To Koutouki tis Elenis. Although the name is quite a tongue-twister the food, service, and atmosphere are outstanding!

    Another lovely place to visit is Panormos Bay which is less than 30 kilometers from Tinos Town. Think of a small harbor with fishing boats, cozy taverns, and cafés along the promenade. Together with Pyrgos, which is famous for its stunning marble-made buildings, it’s definitely one of the most romantic places on Tinos!

    There are many great hotels all around the island but one that can’t be exceeded is Big Blue Tinos. This 3-star hotel close to Tinos Town offers 11 cozy apartments with sea view and an outdoor pool. Thanks to its location facing the south, couples can enjoy the most romantic sunsets while having a drink on their own terrace!

    5. Koufonisia Islands

    The Koufonisia Islands, often referred to as the “Mykonos of the Little Cyclades,” may be small but has some of Greece’s most beautiful beaches. With its easy accessibility and laid-back vibes, it’s a great addition for couples on an island-hopping itinerary.

    This Cyclades archipelago comprises three islands – Ano Koufonisia, Kato Koufonisia, and Keros. Ano Koufonissi, the livelier of them, has hotels, restaurants, bars and more developed roadways.

    For more adventurous couples, free camp on Kato Koufonisia and hike to secluded beaches all to yourselves.

    What really makes Koufonisia special are its sandy beaches with clear turquoise waters. Ammos, Fanos, Italiada, and Finikas are a few of your best options with sandy shores, a rarity to the many rocky beaches in Greece. As you wander along the coastline, stop for a swim at the natural pools or cliff-jump off the rock formations.

    Being so small, you can easily get around on foot. But renting a bike or hopping on a boat taxi makes exploring the island even more convenient.

    When the sun sets, the island’s nightlife comes alive. Have a romantic evening at one of the taverns in Chora, like the fantastic Mikres Cyclades, where you can savor gastronomic Greek cuisine paired with fine wine.

    Despite its popularity, Koufonisia remains relatively affordable. Keros Art Hotel is a great modern boutique hotel option for couples who want to stay near the beach.

    Corfu also offers plenty of opportunities to soak up the sun, whether it’s on a beach or even just relaxing in your own private spot!

    But what really makes Corfu so special is its welcoming people and LGBT-friendly attitude. Everywhere across the Island you will be welcomed and made to feel at home.

    And if you’re looking for the perfect place to stay, try the charming village of Benitses. With its rustic streets and blue waters, it’s the perfect spot for you and your someone special to relax and escape from reality. The best place to book your stay is at Angsana Corfu Resort & Spa.

    So if you want a romantic Greek Island getaway, try Corfu! You can easily fly into Corfu International Airport from all across Europe.

    Corfu is the best Greek island for couples who are looking for romance and spectacular scenery.

    To add some adventure to your trip, you can venture to the waterfalls in Nydri. There you can swim in refreshing natural pools.

    Taking a romantic stroll through the charming streets of Lefkada Town or Vassiliki, with their traditional architecture and vibrant atmosphere, is also highly recommended.

    When it comes to dining, Rachi and Amente are must-visit restaurants for couples. Not only do they offer excellent food, but they also provide the best sunset views on the island.

    For accommodation, Porto Galini is a fantastic choice for couples. The resort offers two swimming pools and a spa, making it a perfect retreat after a day of exploration.

    9. Kefalonia

    Beautiful beaches in Kefalonia, Greece

    Though not yet a household name, Kefalonia offers all the sunny charm of the Mediterranean without the mood-killing crowds (and exploitative prices) of the more famous Cyclades to the southeast of the mainland. 

    Kefalonia is a paradise of white sandy beaches surrounded by cliff tops carpeted in lush vegetation, fascinating archeological ruins, warm and welcoming locals, and some of the world’s best seafood.

    Couples can explore mesmerizing natural wonders rooted in Greek mythology, such as the spectacular Melissani Cave, the legendary home of the nymphs. It could possibly be the best place in Greece for couples who love history.

    But if you’re not up for sightseeing, days in Kefalonia are best spent lounging on Myrtos Beach (or one of the 40 other beaches on the island), snorkeling, and sailing by sunset.

    You can reach Kefalonia by air or sea; the former will get you there quicker with less hassle, but the latter tends to be more scenic.

    It’s reachable by ferry from a few other Greek islands, mainland Greece, and across the Ionian Sea in Italy. If you’re flying, you can touch down at Kefalonia International Airport from several European cities, including Athens. 

    The island is brimming with honeymoon-worthy accommodation, and among the best is the adults-only boutique F Zeen Retreat. It features villas with private pools, expansive ocean views, stellar dining establishments serving fresh, balanced Greek meals, and of course, a spa offering lavender-infused couples massages.

    Perfect holiday: Elafonisis, Greece

    The island of Elafonisos is a slice of paradise and the perfect place for couples holiday to Greece. Especially, if you and your partner prefer the quiet Greek islands.

    Visiting Elafonisos in Greece is an unforgettable experience because of the unrivaled natural beauty of this small island.

    In ancient times, Elafonisos was connected to the Peloponnese by a small strip of land, making it a peninsula rather than an island. Nowadays, Elafonis is an island.

    The main activity on Elafonisos for couples is of course sunbathing on the gorgeous beaches, swimming in the clearest turquoise waters, and just enjoying time in paradise on Earth.

    The most famous beach on the island is called Sarakiniko, known for its long stretches of sand and exquisite turquoise waters.

    Half of the beach has beach bars with lounge chairs and umbrellas for guests, while the other half is a “wild beach”. On this side, you can spend time with your loved one completely alone.

    Besides spending lots of time on the beach, you can explore the ancient ruins.

    On Elafonisos, there is an ancient sunken city, the archaeological site of Pavlopetri, dating back to the beginning of the third century BC. It is believed to have been swallowed by the sea somewhere around 1000 BC.

    You and your partner can also throw in romantic dinners. On this little paradise island, you’ll find plenty to delight your taste buds. You can enjoy the freshest seafood and other delicious local food while sipping a glass of wine and watching the sunset.

    While it may not have the same name recognition as Santorini, the island of Paros with its stunning beaches, picturesque Cycladic architecture and laid-back atmosphere. It definitely rivals for the title of the best place in Greece for couples.

    What’s awesome about Paros is that it is a much more affordable and a way less crowded alterative to Santorini!

    And don’t forget to explore the charming village of Lefkes, where quaint Cycladic architecture and traditional hospitality await you. 

    One of the best places to stay on Paros for couples is in Naoussa boasting a range of boutique hotels. The adults-only Bohemain Luxury Boutique Hotel is a fantastic choice.

    With its unique combination of stunning beaches, charming villages, and breathtaking landscapes, the small island of Skiathos is perfect for couples who want a good mix of both, adventures and relaxing holidays.

    Because Skiathos has its own airport, it’s easy to reach as well. It may be one of the best and most accessible Greek islands for couples to visit.

    Some of the best places to see on Skiathos include Evangelisteria Monastery. This monastery is built on a mountainside and is surrounded by lush greens, making it a wonderful and calm place to visit. 

    The island has also many historically interesting spots to see and one of them is Kastro. Kastro is a medieval fortified site located in the north of the island.

    It was once the main settlement hundreds of years ago and is a great place to learn more about the island’s history. However, many people come here to enjoy a fantastic view of the deep blue ocean from the rock promontory. 

    Skiathos has more than 50 different beaches, one more beautiful than the other. This makes it a very deserving spot on this list of the best Greek islands to visit for couples!

    A very quiet and romantic beach is Mikros Aselinos Beach. Although it’s an organized beach featuring sunbeds, parasols, a tavern, and a small bar, it’s still one of the most peaceful and laid-back beaches. 

    When looking for the best places to stay in Greece for couples, Poseidon Villas in Skiathos Town is a great place to choose. This hotel is located on a hill offering breathtaking views of Skiathos Town and the Aegean Sea.

    14. Crete

    Stunning Elafonissi Beach, Crete😍

    Crete, the largest island in the country, is one of the absolute best islands in Greece for couples!

    It has two of the most beautiful cities in Greece, some of the outstanding beaches in the Mediterranean, amazing Crete food, wild mountain scenery and superb hikes.

    Chania is the most romantic city in Crete. It boasts ancient, Venetian and Ottoman Turkish buildings clustered around a gorgeous harbour lined with boutique hotels and restaurants. The 4-star Belmondo Hotel is one of the best, and some rooms have amazing harbour views.

    Its warren of centuries-old back streets is just as charming, with wonderful restaurants like the Well of the Turk hidden away in tiny ancient squares. It’s also worth taking the time to walk along the harbour wall to the lighthouse.

    Chania also makes a great base for exploring the west of Crete, whether by hire car, bus or day tours.

    The pink sand paradise of Elafonissi Beach is one of the most popular, its sands fringed with a frosting of pink made up of millions of crushed sea shells. Remote Balos Beach – reached by ferry – and Falassarna Beach are further north on Crete’s wild western coast.

    If you want to enjoy these beaches at their best, consider visiting in the shoulder season – June or early October are the optimum times – when the weather and water are still warm but most of the crowds have gone. This is the best time for couples to visit as you’ll find more seclusion and relaxation.

    Crete’s third city, Rethymno, is halfway between Chania and capital Heraklion. Its Old Town is gorgeous, a labyrinth of narrow medieval lanes and a huge town beach just beyond the old harbour. It’s another good base for travelling around Crete, with mountain villages like Spili and the beaches of the south coast within reach.

    16. Santorini (a popular spot and best Greek islands for honeymoon)

    Iconic views in Santorini, Greece

    Of course, you can’t have a list of the best Greek islands for couples without Santorini! It’s the most popular island in Greece when it comes to number of visitors, and offers incredibly romantic vibes for those in love.

    Santorini is located in the Cyclades in the Aegean Sea. If you’re wondering is Santorini worth it – well, its unique topography sets itself apart from many of the other islands in Greece! The villages are built on a volcano caldera! This means you’ll get stunning ocean views from most places on the island.

    Santorini is also known for it’s sunsets. Make your cocktail or dinner reservation for sunset and enjoy a romantic evening for two.

    The most popular spot on the island is Oia. With famous blue dome churches and sweeping caldera sea views, it’s a must-visit during your couples getaway to Santorini. 

    The port city of Fira is busy with shops and restaurants and lots of cruise passengers wandering the town. Imerovigli is more laid back, with far fewer visitors than Oia or Fira, if you’re looking for a quieter place to stay.

    One of the fun things about staying in Santorini is that you can find villas that offer private pools or spas, right on the coast! Watch the sunset from the privacy of your pool on the picturesque cliff. What beautiful memories to create with your loved one!

    Santorini is a must on anyone’s 2 weeks Greece itinerary. To get to Santorini, you can book a flight during the summer season from Athens or a handful of European cities.

    Alternatively, you can fly into Athens and take a ferry. High speed ferries can get there in 5-6 hours, and the slower ferries will take about 7-9 hours.

    Santorini is deserving of a spot on this list of the best couples holiday to Greece!

    Having a mix of secluded mountain landscapes and beautiful beaches, Amorgos Island is known for being unspoiled and great for couples looking for a remote getaway with each other. It’s one of the very best Greek Islands for couples to visit!

    Far from Athens, the direct ferry will take between 5.5 to 9 hours, depending on the route and company. Once you arrive, renting a car will be your best way to get around this relatively large island. 

    Ride around the island, passing traditional white-washed villages and dramatic cliffside coastlines. One of the best attractions to visit is the Monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa, a 40-meter-tall monastery hugging the rocks 300 meters above the Aegean Sea. Enter inside to walk the maze-like layout and be greeted by the resident monks with a shot of Raki and Greek sweets.

    Amorgos is home to epic mountainscapes and coastlines, with picturesque beaches like Mouros Beach, Agia Anna Beach, and Kalotaritissa Bay.

    And while you’re on your way to the southern tip, stop for a hike to the rusty remains of the Shipwreck of Olympia.

    Most people stay in Chora or the two port towns, Aegiali or Katapola. For a fantastic accommodation option, Aliori Art Caves is a creatively designed space with a beautiful pool overlooking Aegiali Bay.

    Amorgos is the best Greek island for couples looking for amazing scenery!

    best Greek islands to visit view of shoreline with hillside beach and blue water
    Dreamy Greek island for a getaway: Agistri

    Agistri is a tiny Greek island that is only an hour ferry ride away from Athens.

    Despite Agistri’s proximity to Athens, the stunning island still feels like a bit of an off-the-beaten-track destination. The island still has an authentic Greek charm, with uncrowded beaches and a slow way of life.

    Agistri is a great island for couples who want to take it slow and soak in natural beauty and small town charm. It only takes ten minutes to drive from one edge of the island to the other, and it’s easy to explore by foot or bike. 

    One of the most notable things to do on Agistri is visit the breathtaking secluded Chalikiada Beach. The beach is famous for being the island’s nude beach, but it attracts a wide array of folks—nude and not—who wish to take in the beauty of the turquoise blue waters and cascading seaside cliffs. The beach is only a 12 minute walk (uphill) from the main Skala port, or a four minute drive. 

    Other things to do on the island include renting a boat for a day, relaxing at a beachfront bar, taking a day trip to nearby Aegina or Athens, biking around the island, and beach hopping. 

    For a relaxing getaway, this is by far one of the best Greek islands to visit!

    25. los (best Greek island to visit for budget-friendly nightlife)

    greek village with white and blue buildings nearing sunset best place in Greece for couples
    Ios at sunset – so dreamy😍

    Ios island is one of the most incredible islands in the Cyclades and perfectly suited for couples who want to go Cyclades island hopping.

    The first thing you should know about Ios is that it is only accessible by ferry from Athens or other nearby islands such as Santorini and Milos, which is why it’s perfect to tack on to an island hopping trip.

    Ios is known as the “little sister” of nearby island Mykonos because it has good nightlife, but it’s quite different from Mykonos and a lot more budget-friendly.

    Ios is a small island at only 18 kilometers wide and 10 kilometers wide, but there’s still loads of fun things to do with your significant other, especially if you rent an ATV. 

    Some of the best things to do for couples are take a boat trip, visit archeological sites such as the Tomb of Homer and the Odyseas Elytis Amphitheater, and watch the sunset from the top of the old town (be prepared for A LOT of steps).

    You should also be sure to have a romantic dinner at the upscale restaurant Gramma’s. While there is a good nightlife scene on Ios, it is not overwhelming and if you choose to not take part you won’t even notice it’s there.

    The best place to stay on Ios island is near the port. This allows you to be close to the beautiful white and blue old town (Chora), beaches, and archeological sites.

    A lovely and cozy choice for couples is to stay at Olga’s Pension, a family owned boutique yet affordable hotel. Since Ios is a small island, most accommodations and restaurants are family-owned, which gives the island a nice hometown feel.

    All in all, Ios is one of the best Greek islands for couples to visit who want to spend a few days both relaxing and exploring. You do not have to worry about breaking the bank and you can enjoy the small island lifestyle.

    28. Folegandros (one of the most authentic and best Greek islands to visit)

    Cliffside views in Folegandros, Greece

    The island of Folegandros is a real insider tip for a couple’s trip to Greece because it’s not only beautiful, but also absolutely romantic.

    This dream island is still very quiet and authentic and gives you the Greek feeling at its best. It is part of the Cyclades, a group of islands a few hours south of Athens and not far from Santorini. 

    The fascinating landscape of this small mini-island is absolutely enchanting. It’s extremely rocky, with a rugged cliff, and the beaches of Folegandros are a sight to behold.

    The highlight, however, is the romantic Chora, perched on an imposing rock hundreds of meters above the sea. Here you can walk through the narrow streets, eat in authentic taverns and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.

    A little bit further on you will find the church of the Virgin Mary. It’s the landmark of the island and can be reached via a beautiful footpath. For a very special experience, you should visit this church in the evening, as the sunsets from above are more than spectacular. 

    Folegandros is an excellent destination for couples who love hiking, thanks to the beautiful landscapes and unspoiled nature. There are many well-marked trails around the island that will take you to spectacular viewpoints and secluded beaches.

    If you are more adventurous, you can rent a quad bike or scooter and explore the island. 

    For a romantic getaway, visit the traditional village of Ano Meria. Here you’ll find cozy tavernas and authentic scenery. For a couple’s vacation, there are some great places to stay on the island. We highly recommend the Onar Suites & Villas with its beautiful pool and stunning views.

    Then head down the coast, where you’ll find the village of Lindos. It’s another popular, beautiful destination to add to your Rhodes itinerary. Relax on sandy beaches, admire the white houses built on the hillside, and visit the Acropolis with some well-preserved Greek ruins.

    Further afield, the fortress of Monolithos offers stunning views of the sea. Or, take a day trip to pretty Symi island with colourful houses surrounding a picturesque harbour.

    Rhodes is accessible by direct flights from numerous European cities. You could also opt for a scenic, but long, ferry trip from Piraeus, Athens’ port. You can also get a direct ferry from Fethiye in Turkey – the journey takes only a couple of hours.

    Consider travelling to Rhodes in the shoulder seasons (May-June, September-October). This way, the weather is pleasant, the island less crowded, and accommodation more affordable. It’s truly an excellent couples holiday to Greece destination.

    Stay at the Lindos Blu Luxury Hotel & Suites with stunning views, beach access and an on-site spa. No matter what you choose to do, Rhodes will surely prove to be one of the best Greek islands for couples to visit.
