The magical island of Santorini is appropriate in the middle of the gorgeous, blue Aegean Sea. The Greece you've always dreamt of comes to life with this island with the white buildings and streets. Most with the hotels with this island are small but luxurious. For a traditional Greek experience, consider residing at small, family owned hotels. Many of these family run hotels have just a couple of rooms or suites available.
If you are searching for privacy, consider Astarte Suites. This family run hotel just has nine suites. It is located in the very least populated area of the island. Each suite is unique. Each suite has Jacuzzis, flat-screen televisions, and king-size beds. Breakfast is served in your private balcony.
Take a few.5 mile hike from Fira to Oia. Be sure to take water and wear comfortable shoes. The views with the ocean along with the volcano are spectacular.
Check out the ruins of Ancient Thera. This ancient city includes remains from multiple periods like the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine. Once you get to the ancient city, you can look down and see the black sand beaches. Kamari Beach is one of the hottest beaches on Santorini.
Enjoy a later date at the sea at Red Beach. The beach is termed for reddish volcanic sand.
