honey moon destination!

We are planing a honeymoon for this year,but struggling to find a destination that is not too far from the UK, is not too expensive and most importantly is not overcrowded with tourists.This is difficult as our wedding is in August!

I read that Skopelos is still quite quiet and not too built up,what are your opinions?

Also I was wondering if it will be really too hot there at this time of year?

Any information would be a great help!

Hi becrew!

I stayed in Skopelos in August and I think that this place is for you!

Skopelos isn't still a too touristy place, very green and not to much hot. There are a lot of beaches with very few people, romantic places and very good greek tavernas!

You could also visit the near Alonissos, still less touristy and very wildest of Skopelos.

I think Skopelos would be great but for a wedding Alonissos would be quieter. We were also thinking of getting married in Skopelos after a fabulous time there last year. I think August may be busy(iish) as still the school holidays - we were there in September - but i may be wrong. I have written a really long review on skopelos that will tell you more about the place!

Congratulations on your wedding and whether you choose Skopelos or Alonissos I am sure you have a wonderful time.

Best wishes to you both

Hey and welcome becrew:-) Although the isle gets pretty packed in August.. it is the peak month.. doesn't really seem so.. since the isle is relatively large, it doesn't seem.. or feel.. that crowded;-) I admit I haven't been there in August in a while.. I usually go in Sept;-) Take a look at www.skopelosweb.gr/ for some general info as well as accommodation options whether in Town or at one of it's beautiful beaches;-) You can also check out www.alonissos.gr/ where you'll find the Marine Park.. google for some fascinating info;-) Congrats.. and Happy Honeymoon planning.. always EnJOY!
