Santorini is a group of islands on the Aegean, and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece. It also happens to be the only inhabited caldera on the planet. When you approach the island by boat, you know you’re in a special place!
Santorini’s stunning landscape of blue waters and world-famous caldera have made it a sought-after wedding destination. The breathtaking views of the orange sunset against the backdrop of the volcano attracts couples (and kisses) seeking nothing short of the best romantic experience.
Areas near the Kamari and Perissa beaches are favored by tourists, but others nestled in cliffs – such as Oia and Fira – are also gaining a lot of interest for their stunning views, tranquil atmosphere, and numerous cafes and shops. If you want to explore archaeological sites, head to Pýrgos, Karterádes, Emporió, Ammoúdi or Messariá. Some of them are quiet while others are bustling and cosmopolitan. Sip on a red or white at a vineyard, gaze at the sweeping views of the sea from a cliffside, or spend some time learning about the local culture at a winery-museum. Don’t forget to sample fresh goat cheese, caper and white egg plants at a local restaurant.
You’ll definitely want to catch some action at the beach; the best ones include Red Beach, Perivolos and Agios Georgios, which are distinctive in their own way. You can go on a diving adventure, walk on black and red volcanic pebbles, party at a tavern or beach bar, or play at a beach volleyball court. Note that are some nudist sections at some beaches.
