Sunrise and sunset are truly magical times of the day and best enjoyed with a stunning sea view. There are plenty to choose from here, but the village of Oia on the island of Santorini offers sheer perfection. Head up the hills just before dusk for delicious sundowners and a truly memorable evening.

What could be more romantic than visiting a temple dedicated to the goddess of love herself, the great Aphrodite? There are numerous temples to this deity all over Greece; however, if you are visiting some of the breathtaking archaeological sites in Athens, head for the remains in the north-west of the Agora to wander among the stones of the Temple of Aphrodite Urania.

If you simply want to get away from it all and indulge in luxurious tranquillity, the islands of the Little Cyclades are ideal; meanwhile, the immaculately unspoilt and peaceful beaches of Naxos are the perfect place to relax and unwind.

You can be as active or as relaxed as you like with sailing holidays in Greece. Whether you decide to try new sports, admire the fascinating culture or simply relax on the stunning beaches, you and your partner are sure to enjoy spending some quality time together in this most romantic part of the world.
