Greek Isles: How to Make It Your Most Romantic Vacation Ever

Originally posted on The Huffington Post on July 7, 2015

As we hit the heart of summer, many people are planning that trip away. Husbands and wives, lovers as well as people in a relationship all look to a vacation to rekindle romance or jumpstart affection. If you are looking to renew your love this summer, the Greek isles can be the perfect place to do it. You can help the Greek economy and find true romance in the process. My husband and I took an amorous Greek vacation last summer and we thought it was spectacular.

Here are my 10 suggestions to make your Greek vacation the most romantic one ever:

1. Head to the island of Crete. Crete is the biggest island in Greece but when you are there, it doesn’t seem that way at all. There are crystalline blue waters and picturesque sunsets that fill the perfect sunny days.

2. The food in Crete is terrific. Make sure to indulge in shrimp saganaki and greek salad. Then, set the mood by sharing some Greek vino indigenous to Crete like Vidiano white wine.

3. While in Crete, you should stay at one of the sprawling resorts in the area of Elounda or Aghios Nikolaos. We stayed at St Nicolas Bay Hotel and it was truly spectacular. Our villa was directly on Mirabello Bay, which made for romantic evenings of skinny dipping. Make sure to check out the Art Gallery “Argonaftis” where they carry art from a variety of Greek artists. We found a painting that reminded us of our kids frolicking in the sea.
