Santorini Holiday Guide

Santorini illustrates perfectly why tourists so love the Greek Islands. The bright colours of the sea and the sky are matched by its multicoloured buildings, the climate is pleasant all year round and the island exudes a innate relaxing atmosphere.

The island is now a haven for peace and quiet, but this wasn’t always the case. It was a major volcanic eruption that formed the moon-shaped basin that makes up the island of Santorini, 3,600 years ago. The island was shaken again by a severe earthquake in 1956, which lead to the destruction of many ancient buildings. During the subsequent reconstruction, however, the style of the original architecture was closely followed to ensure the island didn’t lose its unique character.

Fira is the capital of Santorini, a major cruise port and the best spot on the island for a nice dinner and a night out. The charming Oia is one of Santorini's oldest villages, located on the northernmost tip of the island and is a perfect spot for a photo of the iconic white houses - the spectacular sunsets have been able to inspire many artists. In the village of Pyrgos you’ll find churches with blue domes, old taverns, houses and a 15th-century castle – great for history lovers.

Santorini also has a large number of beaches. Sunbathe on the island’s black sandy beaches at Perivolos and Perissa, while Mesa Pigadia and Pori are the best places to admire the rugged, rocky coastline.

Santorini's climate is pleasant all year round. The average daytime temperature in the summer is 29 ° C and 15 ° C in winter. Not surprisingly, some regions of the island can get very busy during the summer peak season. But that doesn’t mean your trip to Santorini will be anything less than unforgettable.
