Santorini: A cinematic holiday experience

One of the islands of Greece that have managed to gain world fame and hold the position for years in the most famous destinations around the world is Santorini. In fact, it is a complex of small islands that generously unfolds its graces to every visitor. From its eerie natural beauty and famous sunsets to its special architecture and picturesque settlements, the island is suitable for romantic holidays with an aura of naturalistic luxury.

The Santorini landscape balances perfectly between the curved, white, human interventions and the indomitable black and red natural stone. Surrounded by the deep blue of the Aegean and the dazzling blue of the sky, it looks like a living painting on which summer adventures and romance unfold. This unique morphology is due to its, still active, volcano but its charm does not stop there.

Santorini gives the visitor the opportunity to enjoy good food, to swim in crystal clear waters and to wander its picturesque settlements. It is necessary, however, to watch at least one of its famous sunsets from an alley or terrace of Oia. If, however, he wants to avoid the crowds, the spectacle looks just as wonderful from the church of Agios Ioannis Thalassinos in Oia, Finikia, Imerovigli or the old mines in Fira.

If we had to offer only one experience to each visitor of Santorini, this would be a one-day boat trip to the neighboring islands. In Thirasia he will admire the caldera, in Nea Kameni he will see the volcano crater up close and in Palea Kameni he will visit the thermal spring with the healing mud. And Thira, however, is full of wonderful images and experiences. Visit Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli and Oia to enjoy the view, the cave houses, which are carved into the rock of the caldera and the dozens of options for food and entertainment. Some settlements of Santorini are more cosmopolitan, some less, others are surrounded by huge vineyards while in others you will find tall castles. But everyone will give their own unique place to your trip.

Another element that makes Santorini unique is its incomparably beautiful beaches created by the volcano. Among them stands the Red Beach with the red and black rocks, the dark blue waters and the red sand that alternates with black pebbles. In Perivolos the visitor will enjoy fine sand and crystal clear deep waters while he will have at his disposal some of the most popular beach bars of the island, as well as cafes, taverns and infrastructure for marine activities. Vlychada presents a unique lunar landscape, with impressive white rocks, black sand and dark pebbles. For families, the beaches of Baxedes – Paradise and Monolithos are an ideal choice.

Santorini has a lot to offer to those who love intense emotions: from wonderful hikes on the beautiful paths of the island, visits to wineries and cable car rides from Gialos to Fira to its various archeological sites and museums such as the Archaeological Museum of Thira and the Museum of Minerals and Fossils. As for the food? It is expected to be unforgettable through local aromas and flavors such as white aubergines, tomatoes, fava beans and recipes such as honeysuckle, sponge and fish.

Access to the island is by boat, but also by air through the recently renovated airport of Santorini located on the east side of the island. With remodeled outdoor and indoor spaces, increased number of gates, checkpoints and check-in, a pleasant travel experience is a given. Every visitor can now experience a fully upgraded, modern experience of safety and comfort, starting and ending, in the most ideal way, his personal legend in the enchanting Santorini. It is not surprising, then, that the “lost Atlantis” of the Cyclades receives tourism all year round, with a special emphasis on the summer months. So if you are looking forward to a special vacation and see the pictures that only Santorini can offer, book your tickets immediately!
