Santorini

Santorini

Rising out of the crystalline waters of the Aegean Sea, Santorini is the result of an erupting mouth of a volcano that has left a dramatic legacy of black and red-sand beaches and an enormous caldera draped by white-washed houses and blue-domed churches. A harmonious Mediterranean backdrop, shaped by the sharp contrast of the ivory village clashing with the bold black of the volcanic soil, opens up to the traveler in an awe-inspiring paradise that is Santorini.

Oia Village

The village of Oia is the island´s most iconic, and equally touristy, destination. Reflecting perfectly the idea of Santorini that dwells in everybody's mind, the settlement sits 150m above the sea level developing down the slope of the volcanic caldera. The postcard-like view of the village is characterized by its peculiar white and blue houses and cave houses dug on the caldera cliff, originally owned by fishermen. From here, the vantage location offers a sweeping view of the volcano as well as one of Santorini´s most suggestive sunset spots. Shops, museums and art galleries line up neatly down Oia's main road and its narrow crescents that can be easily explored on foot. The village is surrounded by vineyards, providing wine to the local restaurants and bars which are particularly renowned for their fresh seafood.

Red Beach (Kokkini Paralia)

The unique colour of the sand and the breathtaking volcanic landscape make this beach an attractive destination for the thousands of tourists that flock to the island every year. Its particular rock formations treat travelers to stunning views, and the smooth, mirror-like sea creates a contrast with the bold red of the shore. The beach is pebbly and not ideal for lying, though its rock formations make it perfect for snorkeling.

Santorini National Airport

Situated North of Kamari village, Santorini's Airport (JTR) is only 6 km away from downtown Fira. The airport is connected to the capital by a bus service, and the journey takes approximately 20 minutes. Buses are not frequent and may not run throughout the whole day: you will find a schedule outside the airport, before the exit. If you wish to get a private or shared transfer, you can either book it in advance (one option: www.santorinitransport.com) or find one of the companies located at the arrivals terminal. As the bus service is not particularly efficient, renting a car is also a valid option, especially if you are planning on going on a tour of the island. You will find 3 car rental desks located at the arrivals terminal.

Donkey Ride

Santorini's "mule taxi" is a tradition that is unfortunately renowned worldwide, as donkeys are used to walk up the steep climbs of the island and are a main attraction for tourists. Travelers are urged not to use donkeys as means of transportation because of the poor condition in which the animals are kept.
