You’ll be spoilt for choice in Santorini

Santorini offers a combination of picturesque white-washed architecture, idyllic volcanic beaches and delightful hilltop hamlets. But as much as the island will entice you with its beauty and charm, the list of things to do will surpass every expectation. 

The coastal town of Kamari has fantastic beaches, and some fascinating ruins waiting to be explored. Sample thirst-quenching vintages in the wineries of the island, or take advantage of the open-air cinema which runs over the summer months. Laze on the beaches, eat some local delicacies, and embrace the old and the new in capital Fira. Be sure to visit the once-buried city of Akrotiri, an archaeological treasure.

Beaches in Santorini.

Find your perfect Santorini beach

Family-friendly Monolithos beach is great for sports facilities – volleyball and basketball are on offer and it has shallow water. Further south, you will find the blue flag awarded Kamari Beach. Stroll along the promenade or find shade amongst the cosmopolitan cafes and bars. Encounter hidden coves near Oia in the north of the island. Famed for its delightful lighthouse, Akrotiri Caldera beach is one of the best for watching the sunset.

Historical sightseeing in Santorini.

Fascinating history and ancient treasures

Like all the Greek islands, there is ancient culture everywhere you look on Santorini. The Museum of Prehistoric Thira is a great place to start. It exhibits artefacts found at the nearby Akrotiri, dating back to the Neolithic period, 5000 years ago. Akrotiri itself, a few kilometres away, is an open archaeological dig of this ancient civilisation’s past. The Minoan culture was destroyed by the eruption of 1650 BCE. The city was fully preserved by volcanic ash – much like Pompeii.

Shopping in Santorini.

Shopping in Miami

Search through cobbled streets lined with exciting shops, beautiful galleries and high-end end retailers – all vying for your attention. From chic boutiques, to cheap souvenir and trinket shops, you can find something for everyone. Santorini has a wonderful range of options. Glamorous shoppers browse for bespoke shops around Oia. But for those looking to go on a spree, you will find a shopping centre in Fira.

Essen.

Food with friends

Food and drink in the Cyclades is something they take very seriously, because it is so good. Take tours of the acclaimed Santorini vineyards and award-winning wineries, and learn how to create Greek delicacies with a local chef. Go for dinner in Oia, often stated as the most romantic restaurants in the world. For fresh fish and seafood grilled on a traditional barbecue, head down to Ammoudi to a taverna along the docks.

Marvel at the spectacular views from Santorini’s Nea Kameni volcano. From the summit you can gaze down at the sea below and the village of Fira high above. Take a guided tour with an expert local guide to this active volcano and experience a natural wonder. After admiring the views, go for a relaxing soak in the ancient hot springs – just remember to bring a swimsuit.
