Santorini is a beautiful volcanic island off the south coast of Greece, famous for its scenery, amazing sunsets and unforgettable views.
Like everything else about the island, the beaches are extraordinary, with sprawling stretches of black volcanic sand and feasts of watersports facilities. Kamari and Perissa are popular beach resorts, both lively and energetic and separated by a large magnificent rock known as Mesa Vouna.
The island’s capital of Thira is a spectacular city on towering volcanic cliffs, a place for an unforgettable holiday. The steep city with winding cobbled streets can only be reached by foot or mule and boasts some of the best views in Santorini, if not Greece. Tavernas, bars, clubs and museums line the city’s main staircase, while the sunsets at night are unmissable.
Santorini is packed with beautiful volcanic scenery and interesting sights. Oia village is a renowned beauty spot, while lost civilisations can be seen at the preserved ancient Minoan city in Akrotiri that was destroyed by a volcano. Thirasia volcano and small islands off the coast are also worthy excursions.
The true beauty of Santorini holidays have to be experienced to be believed.
