Santorini is one of the most enchanting islands in Greece and you can fully experience it with Santorini Private Tour. It is a rocky island just opposite the volcano, with black and red beaches and its cities hanging on the caldera and the cliffs of the volcano offering unique views and fantastic sunsets. In our opinion, you should go to Santorini when you have the opportunity.
Sunset in Santorini
If you do not experience it up close, you can not understand why it has come to be considered an attraction of the island. And while the sunset in Oia is one of the most famous, the truth is that wherever you enjoy it and just being in Santorini and getting lost in the colors of the setting sun is enough on its own! In Fira you can enjoy this magical time of day on the roof of a bar in the “eyebrow” of the caldera drinking a cocktail. In Oia, tourists during the golden hour flock to the ruins of the castle to capture the moments in their cameras. In Imerovigli the terraces of luxury hotels offer the ideal combination of relaxation and enjoyment away from the crowds.
During the summer months, Santorini sinks from the crowds. If you want to avoid the hordes of tourists who rush to take a seat for the natural spectacle that have made it famous in your world we have the solution. Two more wonderful places to enjoy the sunset on the horizon of the Aegean are from the Skaro of Imerovigli or from the lighthouse of Akrotiri.
Built at 260 meters above sea level, Fira, the capital of Santorini, dressed in typical Cycladic colors, look like they have climbed to the edge of the cliff. The dazzling white of the houses in combination with the volcanic vertical rocks that emerge from the bottom cause the admiration of those who see Santorini for the first time from the sea. As for the view from the settlement to Nea and Palia Kameni, what can one say? The privileged position of Fira in the Caldera is offered for endless hours of relaxation.
The most photographed preserved settlement of Santorini that is famous all over the world for the enchanting sunset at the Castle! Oia with its picturesque alleys, impressive captain’s houses and the many churches with painted domes will steal your heart. It is about 40 minutes from Fira by car. It is considered more “quiet” than the noisy Fira with the intense night life and an ideal destination for romantic getaways from everyday life! Here you will find very good restaurants and an interesting market for works of art, antiques and ethnic objects.
For your stay in Santorini you have many choices. There are luxury hotels with private pools that reach to the edge of the cliff offering stunning views of the deep blue sea and hostels for romantic getaways. Also, there are mansions, old captain’s houses or campsites for cheaper holidays.
Beaches of Santorini
Black beach, red beach, organized beach or secluded bays, with sand, pebbles or shores surrounded by steep, white cliffs. One thing is for sure. The beaches of Santorini have a special, wild beauty. In Red Beach with the imposing red and black rocks you will swim in dark blue crystal clear waters with underwater hot springs and you will sunbathe on red sand, which alternates with black pebbles.
Continuing to White Beach you will enjoy your swim overlooking the impressive white rocks that surround it. Choose the organized beach of Perissa and lie down on very thin black pebbles. You will find a similar landscape with fine black sand and dark pebbles on the beach of Vlychada. In Perivolos and Kamari you will find the most popular beach bars of Santorini, while in Ammoudi (port of Oia) after your dives you will eat fresh fish in the taverns operate by the sea.
Spa in the warm waters of the volcano
It is one of the best experiences you could give yourself when you go to Santorini. Spa dip in the warm waters of the volcano! Depending on your place of residence in Santorini, look for the departure points for the boats that go to the volcanic islands of Palia and Nea Kameni (Gialos, Ammoudi, Athinios).
Make sure you wear light clothing, have a pair of sneakers with you and of course do not forget to get plenty of water. Wild and steep cliffs of red and black shades, volcanic rocks and the crater of a volcano with a history of many millions of years are waiting for you. Dare to dive in the hot springs of Palea Kameni and indulge in the healing properties of the thermal volcanic spring.
