5 romantic experiences in Santorini


There’s a reason so many couples choose the beautiful island of Santorini for their honeymoon. The glowing cliffside from sunrise to sunset is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before and the romantic experiences are plentiful. If you’re in search of some ideas to spice up your itinerary, we have five unique experiences to add to your list. Be sure to book your trip during the season as poor weather cause the island to practically shut down between November and March.

Caldera Massage Studio

One way to get relaxed right off the bat is to book a couples’ massage! You may have traveled a far distance and this is the best way to unwind and refresh. Their Sunset Glow Package is the best value – it includes a complimentary bottle of wine or Champagne, a 60-minute massage for two, and a private viewing deck to experience the sunset from.

Sunsets Restaurant

The best way to watch the breathtaking sunset and avoid the crowds during golden hour is to experience it with a bottle of chilled Santorinian Assyrtiko at this restaurant overlooking the cliffside. This intimate dining experience has the perfect view, delectable cuisine, and an extensive wine list. Not to mention the friendly and accommodating staff who welcome any request.

Santo Winery wine tasting

Thira, the island’s main city, is in the middle of the island and there is no shortage of restaurants to enjoy but, there’s something special about the infinity-balcony setting at Santo Winery. Taste all the flavors of the authentic wines produced on the island and you’ll find yourself shipping a whole crate home.

Perissa black sand beach

Escape the crowds and enjoy a tropical cocktail on a relaxing sunbed along the shore of Perissa Beach. You will feel like you’re in a different place when you step onto this side of the island. Stop in to one of many bohemian-style restaurants for a beachside lunch after the sun has worn you down.

Sunset catamaran cruise

You’ve experienced the island from above, now see it from the sea. If you haven’t noticed, everything in Santorini revolves around their breathtaking sunsets. Each one is unique but all of them are beautiful. Book a private or shared catamaran and depart from Ammoudi Bay. You don’t have to do this at sunset, it’s just as fun during the day to jump into the Aegean Sea and cruise around the moon-shaped island. 

These are only five romantic experiences to enjoy during a honeymoon, anniversary trip, or just for fun! The island of Santorini is full of surprises and hidden gems beyond the typical tourist attractions but it can be overwhelming to try and fit all of these experiences into one trip. No one said you couldn’t come back for round two.

    I’d love to do a sunset cruise, I’ve never done anything like that before. It must be great to see the sun dipping and the light changing. Not only must it be very romantic, it must produce some really atmospheric photos too.

    You know what you are doing with that sunset drinks for two picture. Here in Britain it’s not yet 4 o’clock and it’s dark and drizzly. You know how to get a girl searching for flights to Santorini!

    Any couple would probably know about Santorini and all its beautiful sights and sceneries. Besides the view, Santorini also has a lot to offer for any couple who wishes to have a memorable and romantic experience on the island. Before coming last year, we’ve heard about the must-do’s from a friend of mine and to be honest, I’m so glad we listened because it made our stay in the island even better. The relaxing massages, romantic sunset cruises around the island, and wine tastings just like those mentioned in the article are amazing! We’re already missing the island just by seeing this article.

    If you just had one image or one scene to sum up Greece, the Greek islands and all that they stood for, I expect that most people would opt for a picture of Santorini.

    A massage and a complimentary bottle of champers, yes please! Having a private viewing deck afterwards sounds amazing, such a good way to spend quality time with your other half. How long do you get to enjoy it? I went on a catamaran ride last year but during the daytime and it was amazing, so I love the idea of doing it at sunset when it’s all the more peaceful and romantic.
