Holidays to Santorini
If you had to choose just one Greek island to visit in your lifetime, Santorini should be it. This is the island that graces the covers of tourist brochures to Greece, with its whitewashed villages sprawling atop cliffs overlooking the glittering Aegean Sea. Here you can find superlative beaches, historic architecture, rugged coastlines, and quaint villages just waiting to be explored.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Santorini
Santorini lays claim to some of the most spectacular sunsets in the world, and the best place to catch this fiery display is from the town of Oia. Spend an afternoon exploring the hilly streets lined with gleaming white houses with cobalt blue domes. As the light starts to fade, head to a cafe or restaurant terrace where you can watch the sky transform into a vibrant display of red and orange streaks as the sun sinks into the sea over the Ammoudi Bay.
Beautiful beaches are another huge draw to Santorini. Perissa and Kamari are very popular for their long stretches of black sand and clear aquamarine waters. Red Beach is a feast for the eyes with its rust coloured cliffs and red sands that are lapped by the gentle waves of the Aegean Sea. For those seeking a more intimate beach experience White Beach is a treat. This pretty swathe of sugary sand can only be reached by boat, which means crowds are rare and tranquillity is a given.
Visitors on a holiday to Santorini can explore the villages around the island to take in fascinating ancient ruins, striking architecture, and breathtaking views. Tour the intriguing cave homes of Vothonas, climb to the picturesque Venetian castle in Pyrgos, or take a step back in time in the ancient town of Akrotiri, perfectly preserved under a layer of volcanic ash. For panoramic views of Santorini and the neighbouring islands, head to Ancient Thira with its sun-baked ruins sprawled across a ridge high atop Messavouno Mountain.
