Honeymoon Help !

My daughter and son in law want to spend 7 to 10 days in Greece in mid-May for their honeymoon and asked for my help to find a good place since they know nothing about Greece. Problem is I also know nothing about it. They want some place that is romantic and on the sea or just a "cute village."(my daughter's words) They like nice things (good places to eat, nice views, etc) but also like to be a little adventurous (snorkel or even scuba diving, maybe horseback riding, or maybe 4-wheeling) They also would consider some time on a sailboat. They can budget up to $3000 for the lodging. Anyone have some suggestions??

Hi there

I'm just politely curious as to why they have chosen Greece for their honeymoon when you say that they know absolutely nothing about it? What they really need to do first is to sit down with a good guide book ( Rough Guide is hard to beat) and read it through, making a list along the way of places/islands/resorts that appeal to them based on their personal preferences, then come back to those specific forums with some questions. We all have our favourite locations in Greece but a honeymoon is a special time and they need to ensure that they pick exactly what they want, rather than what we suggest. Plenty here ready to help but they really do need to do a bit of homework first. Thanks.

Greece has hundreds - even thousands - of places on the islands which will meet the preferences you have stated. The Greek islands are gathered in different archipelagos. Like GB says - look up a good guide book and narrow their choices, then return here for some more specific questions.

The main archipelagos are Cyclades:






North Aegean:






and then Crete is the largest island and a main goal on its own:
