Honeymoons in Greece: Explore Lesvos
Greece is a beautiful country full of dramatic coastlines, amazing scenery, historical sites, culture and wonderful food so it’s no wonder a lot of couples consider it as a honeymoon destination. The authentic Greek island of Lesvos is no exception. Although Santorini and Mykonos may be the first islands that spring to mind when you think of romantic getaways, as the third largest island in Greece, Lesvos has something to offer all honeymooners and is ideal if you want a Greece honeymoon destination with a difference! It’s relaxed, unspoilt and not overrun with lots of tourists, plus as an off-the-beaten track destination for honeymooners it means you won’t be surrounded by other couples also seeking romantic seclusion and fun!
In terms of good value for money, you also can’t go wrong with Lesvos - peak holidaying season in Greece is April to October, ideal for honeymoons, but this means prices can rocket - less so on this authentic Greek island - which is ideal if you’ve just spent a lot of money on an amazing wedding day but still want a perfect honeymoon!
Lesvos is a short flight from Athens and there’s several flights each day making it ideal to combine a few days in Greece’s capital with a few days on Lesvos!

Where To Eat & Drink On Lesvos
Every ideal Greece honeymoon has lots of romantic meals out and Lesvos is a great island for foodies - it even has its own food festival each year! Lesvos is also a sustainable destination with most produce grown locally - there’s nothing like the taste of fresh salads, olives and vegetables,all produced near the tavernas serving you! Lesvos is famous for its olive oil, local cheeses and honey. The island is also the home of the world famous Greek spirit Ouzo! This aniseed flavoured drink is traditionally served in small bottles and you pour iv over ice or very cold water. Locals drink it with small plates of food called meze and it is ideal for long, slow lunches or dinner, savouring time together, fresh air, beautiful views and amazing Greek hospitality. The Greeks love food to share and so it’s ideal for a romantic meal when you get lots of meze to share and can sample different dishes together.
