Even if August is almost over, it’s never too late to schedule your summer holidays. While talking about summer, I can only imagine spending my summer days yachting around a beautiful Greek island such as Santorini. So, I decided to write this brief article for anyone who doesn’t know much about Santorini, but he wishes to visit it!
Santorini is a Cycladic island that promises relaxation and unforgettable holidays. The morphology of Santorini is a result of volcanic activity of thousands years. The buildings of the island have not been constructed at the sea level, but at the edges of the inner walls of the Caldera, as a result the island creates the image of a huge colorful rock. From the top, you can take some amazing pictures and admire the breathtaking view. Keep in mind that Santorini is very photogenic so I am definitely sure that you will manage to get that ‘perfect shot’ for your facebook!
Moreover, Santorini is famous for its dazzling sunsets, which can be enjoyed from Oia. The resort captivates visitors from the afternoon until sunset. You can also have short leisurely walks through the picturesque streets of Fira, the capital of the island, which will satisfy you to the fullest. There, you can visit the Museum of Prehistoric Thira and the Archaeological Museum and learn a lot about the history of the island. Other settlements that will surely be memorable to you for their delicacy and grace are Imerovigli, Firostefani, Kamari and Akrotiri.
The beaches are also part of the reddish volcanic landscape: Red Beach, Perivolos and Vlichada are among the best known. Their beauty is unique as it seems that the history of the volcano is still alive.
Finally, Santorini is famous for its gourmet cuisine and the highest taste wines, which are really worth trying. If you are into trying local cuisines and searching for new gastronomical experiences, then you can visit the local restaurants and spend some nice time eating Mediterranean dishes and drinking excellent wine.
