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 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.
