THE BLACK BEACH, THE RED BEACH, THE BEST BEACH
Santorini is also famous for its colorful beaches, due to the volcano. Perissa hosts the famous black beach, which is also the longest beach on the island, fully organized with umbrellas, beach chairs and shops (among which is a beach bar). Adjacent Perivolos’ beach is also black. Of special interest is the red beach, that is a bit harder to get to. Admittedly, the best beach of Santorini is Vlichada, a very organized beach with red cliffs looming over the swimmers. More Details
MEGALOCHORI, PYRGOS, EMPORIO, KAMARI, FIROSTEFANI
There are many picturesque Santorini villages to visit: Megalochori in the west plain that overlooks the caldera, Pyrgos, at the highest point of Santorini, that naturally offers magnificent views, Emporio, the largest village with a beautiful castle, Kamari, a sought after destination for travelers from all over the world, and Firostefani, quite close to the capital, at the edge of the caldera, an essential destination in Santorini.

ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES OF SANTORINI
The ancient, prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri is one of the most important archaeological discoveries of the past decades. It was built in the Neolithic era and was considered a very important city in the Aegean, until it was destroyed by the volcanic eruption that also brought down the Minoan civilization. You can also visit the archaeological site of ancient Thira at Mesa Vouno that was built in the 9th century BC and was inhabited until the Byzantine era. More Details
SEA TRIPS AROUND SANTORINI
The volcano of Santorini makes the sea around it very interesting. A boat can take you to see the caldera and its hot springs, as well as the surrounding islands, such as Thirassia. With a lot of sunscreen and good company, this could be a trip to remember, whether you prefer a sailboat or something more modern. If you’re an experienced scuba diver, then Santorini can offer you even more thrills, as the sea bottom, due to the volcanic eruptions, hides caves and cliffs and shipwrecks. More Details
THE SANTORINI VOLCANO
Santorini used to be circular (which is why it was called Στρογγύλη, Greek for ‘Circular’). The various parts of the volcano, such as Nea Kameni, Palaia Kameni, the Christiana islands, are places to visit. You can easily arrange a trip there by boat, but you can still enjoy these places from afar, as Fira offers magnificent views. Sadly, you can’t visit the underwater volcano of Columbo, unless you have scuba gear. Santorini is essentially what remains after an enormous volcanic eruption that destroyed the earliest settlements on a formerly single island, and created the current geological caldera. A giant central, rectangular lagoon, which measures about 12 by 7 km (7.5 by 4.3 mi), is surrounded by 300 m (980 ft) high, steep cliffs on three sides. More Details
