The area and getting around
According to many, the Greek islands are full of charm. Santorini is washed by the Aegean Sea and has the privilege of being at the perfect location for the best world sunsets. Santorini’s pretty whitewashed towns are pictured thousands of times as well as the blue-domed churches and the steep-edged crater, known as the caldera. In chic Oia, the taverns overlooking the sea offer great cocktails and nibbles while admiring the shades of yellow, orange and red on the horizon. Fiira, the capital of the island is also worth a visit, where you will also get great views of the Aegean Sea as it is perched on top of the caldera ridge.Amazing beaches on the Cyclades Island

The island also offers great sunlounger-filled beaches on the east coast. The coastline on this side of the island is lined with black sand beaches and on the south coast, we can find the traveller’s favourite - dramatic Red Beach! We can’t deny the huge allure of this unique island. Is it in your bucket list already?
Travellers and activities
An island is not just about beaches, sun and sunsets. The island’s interior is dotted with vineyards and traditional little villages. Santorini’s lauded wines are the dry whites and the Visanto, an amber-coloured dessert wine. These wines are made of assyrtiko, an indigenous grape variety. Go for a wine tasting at a local vineyard, sample some nibbles and local produce while enjoying a great scenery. Santo Wines is one of the largest in the island and they offer short tours of the making process and a wine sampling from 6 to 16 wines, by the caldera edge. Raise a glass and cheers!Santorini for walking lovers
In and around the villages you can enjoy lovely walks. One obvious walk is from Fira to Oia, the scenic caldera edge pathway starting in Fira and heading north to Firostefani and Imerovigli. Continuing straight you will reach Oia but be aware this part of the trail is rougher beyond Imerovigli. This is a great 6 mile walk in one direction or 12 if you decide to walk all the way back. You can also opt for a combined hike and sailing tour and get a chance to soak in the thermal hot-springs at Palia Kamena. This is the Nea Kameni Volcano and hot spring route. For a more deserted place to explore, Thirasia is a neighbouring island full of natural splendor you can hike up the hill and get stunning views of the caldera and Santorini. Plan ahead, take plenty of water and wear the proper walking gear, especially in the summer and remember the best time to strike out is in the morning or in the evening.
