5 good reasons to go

Multi-coloured beaches
Multi-coloured beaches
Santorini’s unusual beaches are unlike any you’ve seen before. They come in lots of different shades of white, black and red, all bordered by the turquoise blue sea. If you want to see the island’s black, volcanic sand, head to Vlihada, Kamari or Baxedes-Paradeisos. The stunning Red Beach and beautiful White Beach are just as described!
Perfect for romance
Perfect for romance
Santorini is a romantic paradise island! This Greek island is the ideal, idyllic setting for a romantic getaway. Head to one of the hotel complexes for a good pampering session. Several hotels offer special access to some of Santorini’s finest beaches. There’s definitely magic at work here!
The sunset over Oia
The sunset over Oia
Oia is a pretty, typically-Greek village in the northern tip of Santorini. It has lots of little white houses and blue dome rooves. It’s definitely worth visiting the Maritime Museum, Museum of Musical Instruments and the castle ruins. But what makes Oia so special is its view over the bay and its incredible sunsets.
Volcanic hot water springs
Volcanic hot water springs
The Santorini archipelago was formed when the volcanic caldera was flooded. The volcano, which is still active, formed the island of Nea Kameni. Once you’ve climbed the volcano and enjoyed the unrivalled view over the bay, why not unwind in the hot water springs. It’s rather magical bathing in this supernatural volcanic setting.
Fresh, light food
Fresh, light food
Greek food is unbelievably tasty. In Santorini, why not order a meze, stuffed vine leaves, Greek salad, moussaka, kleftiko or keftedes, which are absolutely divine. For dessert, have some refreshing fruit or yoghurt with honey. Don’t forget to finish off with a coffee or ouzo, an alcoholic drink flavoured with aniseed.

Culture and history

Fira, your first stop on Santorini

Fira is a great place to start exploring Santorini. When you visit Fira, you either need to climb lots of steps or take the cable car. The city’s adorable little streets lead to beautiful cathedrals, the Archaeological Museum of Thera, Santozeum Museum, and you’ll have stunning views at every turn. From different lookout points, you’ll enjoy impressive views over the caldera.

Incredible ancient sites

Archaeological digs have revealed that Santorini was inhabited in 2,000 BC. Archaeological sites at Akrotiri and Thera provide remarkable evidence of this fact. Visit these ancient cities for an insight into the island’s fascinating history.

Raise a glass to wine cellars

Santorini’s volcanic soil is extremely fertile and therefore perfect for vine-growing. Head to the island’s wine sellers and vineyards to learn more about local wines, especially vinsanto. Vinsanto is a sweet wine made from several varieties of grape such as Athiri, Assyrtiko,  and Aidini. Wine-tasting is definitely in order!

Outings

On the island of Thirasia

If you’d like to explore beyond the main island, then head to Thirasia. The island looks similar to Santorini but it’s significantly quieter as it has fewer visitors. Head to Thirasia by boat and explore Manolas port and Korfos village. Climb the steps in Manolas to gaze out over Santorini. The perfect, little hideaway on this Greek archipelago!
