The 6 best Greek islands for couples trips: our favorite picks

There are tons of great Greek islands for couples, but we have a few favorites. Here’s our take on the best places in Greece to visit for couples. 

1. Santorini: the most popular Greek island for couples 

With its iconic cobalt-domed churches and stunning sunsets, Santorini sets the stage for a romantic retreat. Here, couples can indulge in luxurious accommodations and take leisurely strolls along narrow cobblestoned streets buzzing with centuries of history.

As one of the best places to stay in Greece, Santorini does get crowded in summer — and some Fora Advisors recommend other islands if you’re keen on having the most authentic experience. However, Santorini is also home to some of the best couples resorts in Greece, so if your goal is to do nothing but relax on a beach sipping cocktails while taking in the scenery, this is the island for you.

(Pro tip: the Andronis properties are all among the best places to stay in Santorini.) 

2. Mykonos: the best Greek island for couples seeking a mix of nightlife & relaxation

Mykonos is the best Greek island for couples that want to unleash their wild side and enjoy the most electrifying nightlife in the Mediterranean — then relax and recover all day on a beautiful beach. 

A favorite among celebrities and influencers, this luxury-filled island hosts some of the coolest clubs and venues in Greece, like Astra and Bonbonniere. But while the nights are filled with thumping bass and neon lights, Mykonos can also be quite tranquil during the day, especially as you venture away from the more populated areas.

3. Rhodes: the best place to visit in Greece for couples who love history & culture

Rhodes offers a comparatively laid-back setting for couples, but there’s still a spark here for those wanting a little nightlife. 

The island boasts beautiful beaches, charming medieval towns like Old Town and historical sites such as the imposing Palace of the Grand Master. Couples can explore Rhodes’ busy, narrow streets, indulge in authentic Greek cuisine at waterfront restaurants and experience a surprisingly vibrant nightlife. 

The combination of natural beauty, cultural richness and a touch of romance makes Rhodes an excellent choice for a couples getaway in Greece.

5. Crete: the best Greek island for couples that want variety

As one of the most unique places to visit in Greece, Crete stands out as the country’s largest and most diverse island. For many, Crete is a great candidate for where to go in Greece for the first time since it lets travelers sample a little bit of everything Greece has to offer. 

Crete has a rich cultural identity, unique gastronomy and plenty to do, whether you want to enjoy the gorgeous sights of the Mediterranean or get your blood pumping with adventure.

6. Paros: the best Greek island for couples eager to relax & recharge

Paros isn’t as well known as Crete or Mykonos, but it’s just as ripe for a couples trip — especially if you want to enjoy picturesque landscapes and quaint coastal villages. 

The island has a relatively chill vibe, even during peak travel season. And whether you want to lie on the beach or stroll through any of the island’s scenic towns, you won’t see the same kind of crowds typical on Santorini or Crete. 

Ultimately, Paros is one of the best places to stay in Greece for those seeking an authentic experience. Paros does have its more touristy spots, but at large, the island is much more laid back than Greece’s more popular destination — making it one of the best places to stay in Greece for couples who want a bit more privacy.
