We know that searching for a romantic destination just for the 2 of you can be quite stressful. Where to go, what to do, where to stay… Well, worry not, because we will share you with our local knowledge about the best destination for couples, Santorini.

Here are our pro tips for a memorable romantic vacation for you and your loved one.

Wine tasting tour

The Mediterranean climate and the unique volcanic terrain of Santorini result in excellent vineyards that produce some of the finest wines worldwide. The most popular is the white Assyrtiko grape, a dry drink with a citrusy, earthy flavor. There is nothing better than a wine tasting accompanied by a local appetizer while watching the sunset over the caldera.

Fine dining

A dining experience with your soulmate at a fancy restaurant with mesmerizing views of the sparkling Aegean Sea should not be missing from your itinerary. Oia, Imerovigli, and Fira town are just a few of the island’s romantic settlements that host many cliffside restaurants with fresh seafood. Our suggestion is Petra, an awarded restaurant in Oia with a wide variety of menu selections and amazing vistas.

Yacht cruise

The beaches of Santorini are unique and many of them accessible only by boat. So rent a private yacht and explore the island’s scenic beaches. Don’t expect to find white sand beaches, instead, be ready to be amazed by colorful rocks and pebbles made out of the volcano eruption years ago such as the Red beach and the black-pebbled Perissa beach. And if you are thinking about popping the question, there is no better setting than a sunset cruise with caldera views.

Movie time

In the scenic Kamari village is the famous Santorini open-air cinema. Surrounded by lush vegetation and tall trees, the cinema has comfy chairs and atmospheric lighting, creating a romantic setting under the starry sky. Plus, there is a bar where you can grab a drink or some popcorn to share with your loved one. All the movies are in English, so you don’t have to worry about translation.
