The Top Attractions of Santorini!

The magnificent island of Santorini is a top holiday destination and for very good reason! Its breath-taking beauty, enchanting ambience, and rich heritage attribute to its popularity, whereas a multitude of intriguing attractions add to its charms and pave the path for a memorable holiday. Let’s take a look at the top attractions of Santorini that are a must for those eager to enjoy this island to the core!

Without a doubt, the quintessential place to see and explore is the renowned caldera; the steep cliffs of the volcano that shaped Santorini in so many ways bedazzled with the iconic cubic cavehouses carved on its rocks are a wonder of natural beauty blended with human ingenuity. Exploring the caldera both on foot and on a private cruise to the volcanoes is an experience not to be missed. Equally stunning architectural wonders await at the famed Kastelia, for a medieval look at the top attractions of Santorini, with the evocative Kasteli of Pyrgos towering just above Apikia, and the neighbouring Kasteli of Emporio making it at the top of the list! Also worth a visit are the Goulas – the watchtower of the Kasteli – at Oia, and the Rock of Skaros at Imerovigli, both for their rich history but also for their magnificent sunset views!

Searching a bit further back into Santorini’s history, the archaeological excavation of Akrotiri has unearthed a highly advanced city – for many the Lost Atlantis – and a guided tour there feels like a journey back in time. A visit to the Museum of Prehistoric Thera at Fira, as well as the Archaeological Museum, are also included in our list of the top attractions of Santorini for a clear look into our homeland’s history. Last, but absolutely not least, the colourful beaches of Santorini are among its top attractions; start from the Red and the White Beaches, aptly named for the vivid colour of their rocks and sand, and move to the black-sanded Kamari, Perivolos and Perissa, whereas, for a secluded beach immersed in an idyllic setting, the beach of Vlychada is just what you should look for.
