Santorini Island At A Glance
Get on your moped and experience what island living is like – beaches of all shapes, sizes and color grace the shore, quaint villages decorate the cliffs, and a caldera formed by a volcanic eruption artistically dominates the area.
This is what Santorini island in Greece is like.
Santorini is the main island of Greece’s Cyclades and is comprised of 18 unique villages. These villages are:
7. Messa gonia
8. Exo Gonia
Like many of the Greek islands, Santorini is a hot destination for travelers looking for a unique beach destination.
True, the island is known for its beaches and villages, but more importantly, many know it for the Caldera in the middle of the island.
Things to Do In Santorini Island
- Renting a scooter on an island holiday is a must do activity that my husband and I never fail to do during a holiday and we highly recommend this when you visit Santorini Island.
Just bear in mind that you need to be a good driver to do this on Santorini as the roads are very narrow and windy.
We also recommend the following Santorini Island Activities
- Explore all the beaches in Santorini Island
Walk to Red Beach which has a magnificient red volcanic cliff.
The black beaches of Kamarri and Perissa are also a sight to see but remember that these beaches are where most tourists congregate.
For quiet and more private beaches, go to Monolithos or Vlihada ( Take a sandwich or some snacks with you as finding food here is not that easy ) . Also, black sand can be very hot so include some flip flops on your packing list.
