Destination Spotlight: Santorini

Destination Spotlight: Santorini

From spectacular scenery showcased in multiple Hollywood films (including the new Mama Mia! Here We Go Again), to unbelievable sunsets over the Caldera, Santorini is reknowned for white washed houses amidst cliffs and blue-roofed churches. As one of the more well-known Greek islands, Santorini is a popular destination for couples and honeymooners due to it's romantic scene. But there's something for everyone on this island, including a variety of beaches to archaeological sites to vineyards. Looking to take in some of the island's best views? Hike along the Caldera rim from Fira to Oia. 

To experience local flavors, Fira is home to authentic tavernas where visitors can dine on mezedes (appetizers) and sip on anis-seed flavored ouzo. The island's vineyards of Pyrgos and Megalohouri are known for volcanic wines like the amber-hued Vinsanto and the dry white Assyrtikos, perfect for pairing with the Santorini's grilled fish dishes. 

History enthusiasts will want to visit Ancient Thira which straddles a high promontory, and is home to Greek, Roman, and Byzantine ruins. While the Museum of Pre-Historic Thira in Fira has frescoes and pottery on display from the Minoan town of Akrotiri that was destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 1650 B.C. 

Time to relax? Santorini's perpendicular coastline offers a beach for every style. The family-friendly Monolithos is backed by rock formations, those looking for windsurfing and jet skiing can head to Perivolos or Perissa, and couples seeking seclusion can hop on a donkey for a trek to one of Oia's initimate beaches along only-in-Santorini blue waters.
