Greece is one of the best gay honeymoon destinations. It’s packed with history and outrageously romantic settings. Your Greek honeymoon will begin in Athens. Here you’ll discover iconic buildings from the ancient world and dine in a top restaurant. You’ll then visit the two most romantic destinations in Greece: Mykonos and Santorini.
Mykonos is, of course, the most gay-popular Greek island. It offers the perfect combination of luxury hotels, buzzing nightlife and Cycladic elegance. The island’s whitewashed buildings provide impeccably Instagramable backdrops. Over in Santorini, your Greek honeymoon will reach its apex on an island that’s become a byword for luxury and romance. It remains one of the most sought after honeymoon and wedding destinations and it’s perfect for a gay honeymoon in the Greek Islands.
Throughout your trip, you can expect VIP treatment and upgraded accommodation in each of the three hotels. Also find out more on our dedicated gay honeymoons in Mykonos and gay honeymoons in Santorini pages. You can also visit our gay weddings in Mykonos page.

Day 1 And 2: Athens
Transfer to your centrally located hotel and check into your suite. You’ll find a bottle of champagne and an elegant flower arrangement waiting for you. Your Greek honeymoon begins in a fitting location: Athens was the capital of same-sex love in the ancient world.
After a drink and some refreshments, take a trip to the Acropolis and discover the wonders of Greece’s distant past. This citadel overlooking Athens holds the remains of various buildings from antiquity, the most iconic being the Parthenon, a former temple of the goddess Athena. It’s considered to be one of the greatest archaeological masterpieces in Europe.
You’ll feel very cultured when you return to your hotel for some luxury spa treatments. In the evening you’ll have a romantic meal at Spondi, the only two Michelin star restaurant in Europe.
Be prepared for an early start if you want to get the fast ferry to Mykonos.

Mykonos is famous for its whitewashed buildings and winding Cycladic streets of shops, restaurants and bars. It is, of course, a great destination for gay travellers. You’ll no doubt be paying a trip to Jackie O’ Beach Club.
The famous Mykonos Windmills can be found right by Little Venice. If you’re looking for more cultural attractions you could take a boat to Delos for a day trip. Here you’ll find a major hub of Greek mythology with many ancient ruins to explore.
A great romantic location in Mykonos is the Oniro Sunset Bar. It offers panoramic views of the Aegean and Mykonos Town.
