It’s All Greek to Us

The rocky islands of the Santorini archipelago were formed thousands of years ago after one of the largest volcanic eruptions in history. In the ensuing centuries, Santorini played a vital role in the development of Greek and Minoan culture. Today, with its breathtaking scenery and charming whitewashed villages, Santorini is a naturally romantic vacation mecca. Modern attractions include a burgeoning wine industry, excellent restaurants, and water sports, all set against the shimmering, turquoise backdrop of the Aegean Sea.

Fresh Things to Do

Featured Activity

  • For Your Viewing Pleasure

    From legendary sunsets to its iconic caldera, Santorini is one of the most naturally breathtaking islands in the world. Stunning views and scenery can be found pretty much everywhere you look, but below, we’ve outlined a few of the best places to check it out.

    Amoudi Bay. You’ll descend 300 steps to reach it, but the hike to petite Amoudi Bay is worth it. Located below Oia, this is one of Santorini’s most visited sites due to its jaw-dropping sunsets, caldera views, and calm water for swimming. Charming tavernas dish up fishermen’s catch of the day.

    Fira to Oia Hike. There aren’t many better ways to get the lay of the land than this 7-mile trek. The leisurely-to-challenging walk meanders through various village streets and stunning coastal paths. The views out over the water and towns are unparalleled.

    Skaros Rock and Imerovigli. The small village of Imerovigli offers sweeping views of its own, but for a truly remarkable vantage point, walk out to Skaros Rock, an ancient fortress and small peninsula jutting out from the village.
