Best Things to Do in Santorini

Best Things to Do in Santorini

I'm now in the Greek islands called the Cyclades and I have decided to visit my favorite island first: Santorini which is an island formed by a volcano and has great cliffs or summits in the area known as the Caldera where Currently there is the town of La Oia which is incredible with its white / blue buildings and one of my favorite places in the world to photograph.

The Oia is famous for two reasons, the first one is for its infinite pools with incredible views of the horizon and neighbor islands. Hotels with these visas cost between 300 and 600 euros a night in high season.

The second reason why La Oia is famous is because it is the preferred place on the island to enjoy the sunsets as they are unique in the world, full of colors and one of the reasons that makes Santorini one of the most beautiful and romantic places in the world.

In addition to the Oia there is another area on the island with great cliffs and views called Fira, this is the largest town and you will also find the largest number of restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The cost to stay here is between 100 to 300 euros per night.

The most famous beach in Santorini is Perissa which is a black sand beach. Perissa is the largest beach in extension and also has many beach bars where you can swim until dawn. It is also the cheapest place in the island where you can stay, you can find hostels of 10 euros the nights.

There are also tours to the rest of the volcano and hot springs on the island although in my opinion they are not the biggest attraction on the island but you can try them.

You can reach Santorini by plane as it has an airport, or by ferry from the neighboring islands or Athens itself. Once in the island, there is public transport of buses that I recommend to use, it is not very expensive but you should check the schedules online and in the main square of Fira. From Perissa to La Oia can be a journey of more than an hour, the island is long in extension.

Santorini is not the best Greek island for beaches, but definitely has the best views as you can see in the following videos.
