Famous for their unusual colours, the beaches of Santorini are a sight to behold, each with its own character and all unbelievably beautiful. The maroon rocks of the Red Beach and Ammoudi in Oia are spectacular, equaled by the pristine pebbles of the White Beach. The steep cliffs of Vlychada create an otherworldly ambience that takes your breath away, and the black sands of Perissa, Perivolos and Kamari have to be seen to be believed. Some other beaches to look for are Columbo, a secluded beach beneath an imposing rock with unusually warm waters, the quaint Cambia and the charming Armeni harbour, where charming, traditional tavernas offer fresh fish and seafood in a timeless island ambience.

Nowadays, one can admire what remains of Santorini’s rich past in the remarkable archaeological excavations of Akrotiri, the Aegean Pompeii, as well as at Ancient Thera. The Archaeological Museum and the Museum of Prehistoric Thera at Fira showcase significant findings from there and around Santorini, whereas the Maritime Museum in Oia offers a peek into the life of local seafarers through the course of time. As for the famed Kastelia, the best-preserved ones are those of Pyrgos and Emporio, whereas the ones at Oia and Akrotiri are almost entirely gone, with just their ‘Goulas’ watchtowers still standing. The imposing Skaros Rock at Imerovigli has but a few ruins left standing of its past glory, but it is still worth a visit for its breath-taking views to the archipelago and the sunset. As for the beauty of Santorini’s architecture, it is all around us, alive in every step we take and awaits you to explore it.
