Santorini

Overview

Whitewashed villages cling to the cliffside on this enchanting Greek isle. Topped with traditional blue domes, Santorini’s serene skyline is instantly recognisable. Volcanic-sand beaches, sapphire seas and a partially-hidden caldera make up the coastline, while inland you’ll get to explore less crowded settlements and quaint vineyards.

Seascapes and sunsets

Santorini does sea views like no other Greek island. Take in world-famous panoramas from the clifftops and come night-time, you’re in for a real treat. The skies light up in orangey-pink hues and as the sun sets over the hillside village of Oia. It’s truly magical.

Beautiful black-sand beaches

Showcasing the island’s dramatic volcanic past, the dark sands along the east coast provide the perfect backdrop to a day’s sunbathing. Blue Flag Kamari Beach sits at the foot of the Mesa Vouno Mountain, while further south in Perissa, you’ll find a shimmering black-pebble shore and a multitude of water sports.

Charms of the capital

Overlooking the edge of an extinct volcano, Santorini’s capital Thira boasts a unique setting. Photo opportunities are endless, al fresco restaurants are waiting to seat you and the view, of course, is out of this world. If you’re looking for peace in this town’s hustle, the cobbled streets wind into tiny, more tranquil villages.
