Honeymoon in Greece

Trip Planning

Honeymoon in Greece - Crete - many people ask us their holiday questions and we are more than happy to help...



Hello, my fiance and I will be honeymooning in Crete Greece and will be spending 5 nights in Crete. We will probably fly into Chania and I was looking for suggestions of where to stay?

I really like Casa Delfino and have written to them already and am awaiting a reply. I am wondering if we should stay 3 nights in Chania and then go to another town for a few nights?

Or do you suggest staying the whole time in Chania and doing day trips.

The places I absolutely want to visit are Elafonisi Beach and also Agios Nikolas.

I also thought that Rethymnon looked kind of neat as well. We love to have fun, meet people, talk to locals and just relax drinking wine and eating good food. We want our honeymoon to have fun days on the beach but also stay in charming areas where we can really experience the culture and life of Greece.

Any itinerary suggestions?

Can we go to Agios Nikolas for a day and have dinner there then go back? How would we get there from Chania?

Thank you for all of your help!!! Lisa








Honeymoon in Greece

Hi Lisa, Chania is a very romantic town so you have chosen well. Make sure you stay in the old quarter near the harbour, as this is where the most atmospheric little laneways are, and lots of lovely boutiques and jewellery studios. The Casa Delfino would be ideal, and depending on your budget you could stay there for 5 nights, hire a car and do some day trips.

However, based on some of your destinations, this might not be ideal as both Elafonisi and Agios Nikolaos are a little far away from each other.

So we have made a suggested itinerary for your honeymoon in Greece here. This is based on three nights in Chania in the west before heading east for one night in Rethymnon, one night in Agios Nikolaos.

Day One
Arrive Chania airport and make your way to the old town (taxi) 13 km
Stay at Chania - Casa Delfino

Day Two
Pick up hire car early and travel to Elafonisi for the day 150 km round trip
Stay at Chania - Casa Delfino

Day Three

Enjoy both Chania and Rethymon
Stay at Rethymnon - Avli Lounge Apartments


Day Four
Drive to Knossos and Agios Nikolaos 200 km
Stay at Agios Nikolaos - Hotel Du Lac

Day Five
Drive to from Agios Nikolaos to Chania Airport 200 km

Can we suggest you concentrate on the west side of the island and forget about Agios Nikolaos? As you can see it makes a very big exciting trip but you won’t have a very relaxing honeymoon in Greece.

If you take this suggestion then here is a revised itinerary. A good Crete travel guide will give you exact details.

Day One
Arrive Chania airport and make your way to the old town (taxi) 13 km
Stay at Chania - Casa Delfino

Day Two
Pick up hire car early and travel to Elafonisi for the day 150 km round trip
Stay at Chania - Casa Delfino

Day Three
Enjoy both Chania and Rethymon
Chania to Rethymnon return drive – 120 km
Stay at small village – Ano Vouves -  (25 km from Chania)

Stay at Elia Guesthouse

Day Four

Drive to Knossos and Agios Nikolaos 200 km
Stay at small village – Ano Vouves

Stay at Elia Guesthouse

Day Five
Drive from small village Elia Guesthouse to Chania Airport 30 km

In all these places you will be able to have fun, meet people, talk to locals and relax and taste the great food of Crete Greece.
