Why a honeymoon to Karpathos?
Karpathos is perfect for couples and therefore really suitable as a honeymoon destination. You will find the Greek island at about 3.5 hours flying from the Netherlands and it is located between the larger islands of Crete and Rhodes. The flying distance is perfect if you live somewhere in Europe! In addition, Karpathos is just a wonderfully romantic place for couples. The island is nice and quiet especially in May / June and from mid-September and has beautiful places to swoon away during a sunrise or sunset. Let’s also especially the beautiful beaches on Karpathos not forgetting to give an extra romantic vibe to your honeymoon. In addition, of course, also very affordable in Greece. Okay, the plane tickets to Karpathos are a bit more expensive than to other Greek islands, but otherwise, the giant is not too bad! The accommodation you have in hand of course, but in terms of eating out or activities you do not have to worry, these prices are very affordable. With eating out, we usually pay about 25 euros with the two of us. A lot of activities do not have to cost anything like day trips to the beach, hiking, snorkelling etc!

Althea Boutique Hotel
Don’t you want to be in the middle of nowhere and just stay in a cosy village? Althea Boutique Hotel is maybe more your thing! This beautiful hotel is located in the village of Amoopi. Restaurants can be found here and the beaches are beautiful and easily accessible here. If you book a package to this hotel you do not necessarily need a car either. The bus just drives here.
Just outside the village Finiki, you’ll find Arpathea Villas. These villas are of a decent size and have great privacy! They even have an infinity pool in the garden. Again, you are a bit more remote, so a car is necessary if you want to eat or go to the beach. Yet if you do not mind so much you could walk to the town of Finiki which is about 25 minutes walk.
At about 5 minutes from the airport, you will find Poseidon Hotel. This hotel is best known for the restaurant that goes with it. This is being run by a Dutchman with his Greek wife. Angela has participated in Masterchef Greece and the dishes here are so very different than you will find in a regular Greek taverna. The hotel mainly has standard rooms, but they have one special suite with a jacuzzi which is perfect for a honeymoon to Karpathos.
