Santorini in December

Hi Guys

I am planning my honeymoon in the month of December. Exact dates being 19th - 27th December.

Santorini island looks beautiful as a destination.

However, my concern is whether the island and other surrounding areas for food and water activities along with the resorts on the island will be open during that time or not?

I read somewhere that the island shuts down in December.

Could anyone please advise on this and suggest a nice itinerary for a week holiday in Greece keeping the weather in mind.

es,they will be shut down.look for islands that are ''open'' all year long,places like chania in crete,rhodes town in rhodes etc..does it have to be an island holiday?december is winter in greece,so it would make more sense to go to the mainland,where are great areas,like nafplio or monemvasia castle,both in the peloponnese

December isn't the time for a honeymoon in any Greek island (or mainland). Postpone the trip at least 5 months, or go somewhere else.

Hi Akshat

Santorini is a beautiful destination for a honeymoon but not in December. Weather won't be good, the sea will be cold, most businesses will be closed. For the best chance of winter sunshine in Europe, you really should consider the Canary islands and Madeira although of course, there are never any guarantees
