Everyone craves escaping to Greece for their dream holidays and more often than not the mental image one paints upon hearing the word ‘Greece’ consists of magical beaches, whitewashed houses, cobbled pathways, and eternal sunshine, and they’re not wrong. However, you can find this and many more in destinations that often get overlooked by the common visitor. Mykonos and Sanotiri are awesome, don’t get me wrong, but in my humble opinion, there are many other places that are just as good but not nearly as appreciated. Here are some off-the-beaten-track places to visit in Greece if you’re after seeing other fish in the sea - pun very much intended!
In the words of Henry Miller, ‘It takes a lifetime for someone to discover Greece, but it only takes an instant to fall in love with her.’
According to recent studies that have taken place solely inside my head, there is not one single soul that has visited Greece and didn’t fall in love with it immediately. The glorious sun, the omnipresent sparkling sea, and the impressively delicious cuisine are good enough reasons to make you consider relocating for good.
Maybe the -otherwise gorgeous- islands of Mykonos and Santorini are not really your scene. Maybe you’d like to celebrate putting a ring on it with a good book on a hammock by the sea, or relaxed drinks on a quiet, homey bar. Thankfully, the diversity of destinations in Greece make it possible for even the most alternative of couples to find what they’re looking for; so don’t cross Greece out of the list just yet and check out below the alternative way to spend your honeymoon in our magical country!
