Experience Santorini: what to do, what to see

Not all volcanic eruptions are disastrous. If it wasn't for one eruption 3600+ years ago, Santorini wouldn't be the rocky paradise it is today. Crescent in shape, Santorini, also called Thira, is an oasis in the Aegean. Santorini is the most romantic island in Greece and the Cyclades, a perfect place to spend a holiday for two.

Essentials in Santorini

Ancient Thira: Santorini was first inhabited by the Dorians in the 9th century BC. From temples, houses to the agora (the island's ancient market place) and theatre. There are great views from here as well.

Oia: One of the biggest draws for Santorini are its magnificent sunsets. The best viewing stop is the small village of Oia on the northern tip of the island. The view on the horizon is like none other. It'll help to have a Santorini car hire to reach more off-the-beaten-path places.

Beaches: The type of beach depends entirely on which volcanic layer is exposed. There are black beaches, white ones, red ones, pebbly ones from solidified lava. As you may have guessed, the water off the black beaches is by far the warmest.

Accommodations in Santorini

The hotels in Santorini, and generally all across the Cyclades, are higher in quality than those you'll generally find on land. From tiny and cosy pensions to entire private houses and luxury villas, the rooms are clean and the owners take pride in their customer service. The best rooms are located in Santorini but they're also some of the most expensive on the islands.
