Friday Feature: Santorini

Santorini is one of Greece’s most popular islands, due to its stunning features, delectable cuisine, and unforgettable activities. A few notable features of Santorini are: the Caldera views, stunning sunsets, luxurious hotels, sun-kissed beaches, breath taking volcanoes, and so much more. If you are planning a trip or honeymoon to Greece, we recommend pairing Santorini with stops at two other islands, as well.

Best Time to Visit Santorini

The best months to visit Santorini are from April to early November. If you are a honeymooner, we suggest visiting between June and September for optimal beach and swimming weather. If you are looking to save money you should go in April, May, October, or November.

Things to Do:

Spend the day at the beach. If we are being transparent, Santorini is not the Greek island most known for their beaches, however there are still beaches that are worth checking out (like Perissa and Kamari Beach).

Hike from Fira to Oia. This hike is one of Santorini’s most sought out experiences. Hike along the edge of the Caldera and walk through towns like Oia and Imerovigli. The entire hike is just over 6 miles… so bring your sneakers!

Sunset catamaran cruise in Oia. Santorini is known for its stunning sunsets, but enjoying a sunset on a private catamaran in Oia… well that is truly unforgettable. You can even arrange to be dropped off at dinner and feel like the VIP that you are.

Taste the flavors of Santorini. Enjoy true gastronomy in Santorini with incredible food and wine experiences. We love visiting wineries, like Santowines, for an incredible wine tasting experience. For dining, you can not go wrong with a local fresh fish tavern.

Featured Properties: Mystique, Canaves Oia Suites, Katikies Kirini Santorini, & Istoria Hotel.
