Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away. Have you ever thought about planning a romantic weekend on the Greek island of Santorini?
Every summer Santorini welcomes the visitors with its stunning beaches, great caldera sunsets and enchanting towns. But February is Santorini’s coldest month and many tourist activities are closed. So, why do we believe it is suitable for a Valentine’s Day trip?
First, because it is beautiful. Even in winter. Indeed, in winter the island is all to yourself, without the usual horde of tourists. This also means 100% privacy, an important detail for a couple’s trip.
Second, Santorini is not dead in winter. More and more people are choosing to spend Valentine’s Day on the island and hoteliers and restaurants are meeting the demand.
In other words, on Valentine’s Day you can have the best of summer and winter Santorini.
So, here is a short list of things to do during a romantic weekend in Santorini.
A romantic dinner is a must on Valentine’s Day!
In Santorini there are numerous restaurants with stunning sea views and tasty menus. Which one to choose? Well, first you have to decide which town to go to.
Fira is the capital of Santorini.
Walking through the streets of Fira you will see those typical Greek buildings with white walls and blue domes you saw on Instagram. The town has a great atmosphere but it is also the vital center of the island. For this reason you will find chic boutiques for a last minute gift and, of course, open bars and restaurants.
Instead, Oia is quieter but it is famous for being the best place to watch the sunset in Santorini. This makes the town the most romantic spot on the island to spend Valentine’s Day.
If wine is your thing, a wine tour is a great way to spend your romantic weekend in Santorini.
We promise that exploring the cellars, discovering the wonders of the island and sharing the wine tasting with your significant other will give you a ton of good memories.
For those who love relaxation, what could be better than a couple’s massage? And what about looking at the caldera from a wonderful infinity pool?
In Santorini there are many spa hotels and wellness centers that offer packages designed specifically for couples. You can choose from yoga, hot stone massage, jacuzzi, beauty treatments and much more. All these typically offered in exclusive and well-kept facilities.
There is no better way to explore Santorini and its caldera than a boat trip.
The boat guarantees privacy, freedom and a certain amount of adventure. This is why it is definitely an excellent option for your Valentine’s Day in Santorini. And this is especially true for those boat tours that also include overnight accommodation on board.
Who knows what can happen under a starry sky, swayed by the gentle movement of the waves … perhaps a marriage proposal?
