If you’re after a quiet getaway either by yourself, as a couple or with the whole family, Santorini makes a great choice for your holiday this year, as it not only offers many great opportunities to relax but also a good selection of great entertainment to suit everyone of all ages!
Located in the Cyclades group of Greek islands, Santorini is a beautiful and very unique island that has very interesting shape thanks to its volcanic origin. Here you will be able to enjoy stunning beaches, beautiful landscapes as well as the many activities and attractions that are sure to keep you busy throughout your holiday.
This stunning resort is one of the most popular on the island and rightly so! Here you will find a good selection of beaches including the main Kamari beach. This stunning example of a volcanic beach is black in colour and is one of the longest in the whole of Santorini! But don’t let the volcanic nature of the sand put you off as it is just as soft and perfect for laying on when catching those sizzling rays of sunshine! The waters are a beautiful tone of blue and offer many opportunities to go for a swim or enjoy water activities including diving and snorkelling, a great way of seeing what lies beneath the surface!
If you love ancient history then you’re in the right place as the ancient city of Thira is located directly above Kamari on a mountainous ridge that overlooks the area. Here you will be able to see ancient ruins that are now open to the public including the 150 seat amphitheatre!
If you’re after decent nightlife then Kamari is the place to be in Santorini! You will find many fantastic bars around the resort including Groove Bar, Prince Bar, Splash Bar and many, many more! Don’t hesitate to try out different places and party until the early hours!
Compared to Kamari, Perissa is much quieter but thanks to its location that has it sitting not too far from Kamari, you can enjoy both the peace and quiet of Perissa as well as having easy access to the facilities of the more popular resort of Kamari! That is, as long as you don’t mind traveling.
Perissa’s sleepy village atmosphere will have you relaxed in an instant and with it’s beautiful black sand beach, you will have every opportunity to lay back and relax in front of huge, white cliffs while staring out into the deep blue sea. The contrast of colours in the scenery here is quite remarkable!
If you would like to keep active the sea here is more than calm enough for a swim and with a selection of dive centres around the resort, learning to dive can be easy, so you can explore beneath the surface and discover what the undersea world has to offer.
With Kamari and Perissa towards the south east of the island, in the north you will find the traditional and picturesque resort of Imerovigli. This beautiful village is situated high on a cliff that overlooks the stunning blue sea, making it the perfect destination for romantic getaways and honeymoons.
The convenient location gives you easy access to explore the north of the island, which has a good selection of beaches and villages. If you love keeping active then why not try hiking up Scaros Rock where you will find an ancient castle at the top as well as stunning views of the surrounding area!
