Earth’s most romantic place: The Greek Islands


 Jane Robert’s guest post article, continued from the preceding page:

Getting to the islands

Couples that want a romantic getaway to spend their honeymoon or even to spend quality time with their loved ones should totally tour islands in Greece. The island scenes are spectacular and offer a serene and captivating mood for a romantic time.

One can reach all of the islands by ferry and some of the islands by plane from Athens (or on direct flights from other European countries as well). The ferry is usually crowded with many people crossing to the islands for different purposes. However, the ferry ride does offer an amazing look at the water.

Travelling to an island by plane is a thrill for every couple since one can enjoy a nice aerial view of the island they are going to tour. The passengers also get a memory of a lifetime when the plane descends over the sky-blue sea as it comes in for landing.

Spending time on the islands

The vast coastlines on the Greek Islands offer couples a chance to hang out and enjoy the cool breezes from the sea. To access the beaches, one can walk, take a local bus, or go on a boat ride.

The beaches offer a serene environment for couples to enjoy themselves. With warm waters and white or golden brown sands (red or black on volcanic Santorini), the beaches are amazing places to spend one’s holiday. Endless parties, restaurants along the beachfront and regular evening events keep things lively at some beaches late into the night — and sometimes until dawn.

Scuba diving is available at most islands in Greece, and gives one the chance to view the under waters in style. The crystal-clear Mediterranean Sea offers an amazing view of underwater treasures for couples that are willing to give scuba diving a try.

Famous Greek sights

Visitors to Greece always visit the amazing sights that are found on the various islands. These places hold the history of Greece and offer a good way to relax after long swimming hours.

The Venetian castle of Skopelos, which is reached by a narrow maze of whitewashed alleys, is home to the rich 13th century culture in Greece. The walk to the ruins gives one a view of the harbour and welcoming tavernas.

The Drogorati cave in Kefalonia offers a cool and extensive site of limestone formation with impressive stalagmites and stalactites. The caves are 60 metres deep — huge enough for people to host concerts in them.

If you are seeking a romantic place to spend your honeymoon or escape for a romantic getaway, be sure to consider visiting the Greek Islands.
