Volcanic Sand Beaches
For a unique coastal experience, head over to one of the many beautiful beaches along Santorini’s shore.

Find comfort in a sun bed or hammock as you sip on a refreshing cocktail all while you take in the rays in the Mediterranean. We recommend visiting Red Beach, Perissa, and Kamari.
Admire the Architecture
You don’t need a guided tour to take in the beautiful architecture of Santorini. Whether you choose to take the streets by foot or see the town for a day by donkey ride, you’ll come to admire the historical structure of the island. Be sure to stop by the villages of Oia, Firostefani, and Imerovigli.
Tour the Local Wineries
The wineries of Santorini are unlike any other. The local wine produced has a unique taste due to the volcanic soil and climate they are produced in. Spread along the countryside, you’ll definitely want to tour the local wine scene. There are plenty of wineries to choose from, some of our favorites being Art Space Winery, Antoniou, and Santo Wines.
Indulge in Mediterranean Cuisine
Boasting incredible ingredients grown in rich volcanic soil, you can’t go without tasting the food of Santorini. Some of the island’s most famous ingredients include sun-dried cherry tomatoes, fava beans, capers, and white eggplant. A few of our must-taste restaurants include Selene Restaurant, Aktaion Restaurant, and Argo Restaurant.
Take in the Sunset
When it comes to breathtaking sunsets, Santorini certainly delivers. No matter where you catch the sun setting it’s sure to be beautiful, but there are some notable locations you’ll want to visit to get the absolute best views. The village of Oia is one of the most popular sunset watching destinations but be sure to get there early and expect a crowd. Another great option is to watch the sunset by boat.
