Crete Honeymoon: Best Hotels & Isolated Beaches for Couples


Isolated beaches to create romance

Crete is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world because of its natural beauty, rich cultural heritage, its amazingly luxurious hotels and resorts and of course the world-famous Cretan cuisine and hospitality. It’s no wonder then that thousands of couples from all over the world choose to spend their honeymoon there. Spending your honeymoon however can be a bit of a double-edged sword. On one hand, the Greek island is one of the most beautiful and romantic destinations in the world, but on the other, newlyweds are after privacy and this can be in short supply in such a popular destination.
The best hotels for couples in Crete earn that title because they offer lots of privacy to their guests, and you can easily find them by searching for honeymoon hotels in Crete on Google and other search engines. Ideally, you should be looking for hotels that offer honeymoon suites, preferably with private swimming pools. You will be surprised by how many you will find. It is up to you to choose the best one according to your tastes and vacation style.
But what happens once the newlyweds decide to step foot outside of the hotel? Is it possible to relax and enjoy some intimate moments on a beautiful beach without being surrounded by families and other tourists? The answer to this question is yes, provided of course that you know some of Crete’s most beautiful secret beaches!


Located about 70 kilometers south of Heraklion, this is easily one of the most gorgeous and most isolated beaches on Crete. It’s name comes from the Turkish word “Agas”, a local administrator, which implies that the beach was owned by a Turk official during the past. You can get to its general location by car, but the beach is only accessible by well marked and easy to traverse foot path. It should be noted that apart from crystal-clear turquoise waters Agadiko also boasts a cave with stalactites and stalagmites which are said to drip holly water. If you are looking for a very isolated yet gorgeous and unique beach to spend a day of your honeymoon in Crete, Agadiko is the perfect choice.


Kamara means arch and this gorgeous beach takes its name from a unique, natural arch that can be found in its location. Now that the famous “azure window” on Malta (where the scene of Daenery’s and Khal Drogo’s wedding was filmed), is no more, this unique and isolated beach will definitely feature in a lot of your honeymoon photos. The beach is sandy and close to the famous Geropotamos beach and despite the amazing landscape, it tends to be very private. There is a catch however: it is only accessible by boat which means that you will have to rent one, if you have the appropriate license, or hire one. Thankfully, there are a lot of tourist boats in the area and they will have no problem dropping you at the beach and then coming back to collect you after a few hours.


The name of this beach can be translated in Greece as Canyon of the saints. The beach is located at the end of the eponymous canyon, which is very close to the town of Matala, known as a very popular destination for hippies during the 60s and the 70s. The beach is named that way because monks used to live in the caves of the canyon. There are still some monks living there today, but they avoid contact with people. The only way to get to the beach is by trekking through the canyon. The trek is about 50 minutes long, but the landscape is really beautiful. You can make your Crete honeymoon even more special by camping for a few days in this gorgeous and very isolated location!
