Bored of reading lengthy travel guides and never reach the end? Read our short and to the point “travel guide” of Santorini and smash your time! Santorini is one of the most popular Geek islands which is natural beauty is second to none. Here we will point out the 10 MUST things to see in Santorini.


Thira is the main town of the island where all the action is. Walk around the slated allies, take glances from the cliff edges and get inspired from the island’s unique atmosphere. Tip of the day: Drink your coffee in one of the cafes which are located on Thira’s cliffs.

Explore Oia

Oia is the northern city of the island worldwide famous as the best point to watch the sunset. In the summer thousands of tourists grab their drinks and sit waiting for the sun to set. There is a connected “path” between Oia and Thira ideal for hiking.

Volcano and Hot Springs

Opposite from Santorini you can find the Volcano (known and as “kameni”) from where all started. Due to volcano eruption that happened many years ago Santorini has red and black stones everywhere. Next to the volcano the hot springs can be found.

Santo winery

Santorini produces famous wines due to the quality of their local grapes. Take a tour at the Santo winery, be privileged to sample the different varieties and buy your own bottle as a souvenir. Don’t overdo it as the Santo wines are “sneaky strong”.

Red beach

Red beach is the most popular and natural pretty beach of Santorini. The beach is located some steps away from the ancient site of Akrotiri. Due to its small size the beach creates a crowded atmosphere and many days visitors prefer not to make it all the way down to the beach and instead marvel this unique scenery of red and black volcanic rocks from the top.

Black beach

Amongst Santorini’s most “wanted” beaches, especially among young travelers, are Perissa, Perivolos and Agios Georgios, which sprawl one after another to create the longest black sandy beach on the island; busy beach bars, diving and water sport centres and beautiful-people-watching! Could you ask for more?


Thirassia is part of Santorini’s complex and is opposite from the majestic Oia. Thirassia is a part of a bigger island but got sunk and its local residence is known for their hospitality. The natural landscape and its untouchable architectural heritage attract the travelers’ eyes. Traditional fish taverns challenge visitors to appreciate the Greek local homemade cuisine.

Visit Ancient Akrotiri

Ancient Akrotiri is a fascinating and important archaeological site, which provides a rare glimpse into urban life in the Minoan period. Named the “Minoan Pompeii,” the flourishing town was at once destroyed and preserved by a volcanic eruption. Today it has been partially excavated and is protected from the sun inside a large shed.

Visit Donkey Brewery

Let’s be honest. When you hear Mykonos, you imagine endless clubbing, drinks everywhere and wild night life. Amazing bars can be found in the town, such as Scandinavian bar, Caprice and in the outskirts the world famous clubs such as Cavo Paradiso, Paradise club and many others. Most of the beaches also host very vivid and lively beach bars where you can find people drinking and dancing from early in the morning.

View from Profitis Ilias Chapel

Profitis Ilias Chapel is one of the highest points of the island and the view is breathtaking. If you prefer to admire Santorini’s sunset in a more private way overlooking the vertical cliffs of the island Profitis Ilias is the place for you. Do not spread the secret if you want to maintain the peace and quietness of the spot!
