More About Santorini

Santorini is perhaps the most fascinating and most talked about island of Greece in the Aegean. Only the name of the island is enough to unfold in mind pleasurable connotations, volcanic landscape, gray and red beaches, dazzling white houses, terraces with panoramic sea views , stunning sunsets, wild fun.

All this, together with remnants of lost civilizations discovered in the volcanic ash justify the epithets with which visitors identify Santorini and fairly is called, magical, indescribable, astonishing.

The volcano is still active, and the last eruption was in 1950, causing an earthquake that destroyed many villages on the island. The island's official name is Thira and its main town, Fira, is also the capital of the Cyclades islands.

Most holidaymakers stay where the beaches are, Kamari and Perissa, but these places really do not represent the island's amazing distinctiveness.

Santorini is a cosmopolitan island and is therefore quite expensive.

Santorini Ferry Port
Santorini Ferries

Approaching the island by boat the immediate impression obtained is this is a Greek island unlike any other. The island of Santorini was formed out of the lava from the volcanic eruption in 1660 BC. The central part of the volcano sank into the sea leading to the emergence of Santorini itself and the tiny neighbouring islands of Thirasia, Palaia and Nea Kameni close by.

There are ferries to Santorini from Athens Piraeus 2-3 times a day, from Rafina four times a week, Ios-Naxos-Paros 2-3 times a day, Syros twice a week, Milos twice a week, Sikinos - Folegandros 4 times a week, Mykonos-Delos daily, Rhodes twice a week, Crete daily. The island is also connected by air with Rhodes and Heraclion of Crete during the summer season. In general, Santorini is a great place to start if you want to go island hopping, since it is connected to most Cycladic islands.

Santorini Attractions

Today, Santorini is the only inhabited Caldera (volcano cauldron) in the world. Unlike other islands in Greece, the towns and villages sit densely on top of the massive cliffs of the Caldera and from a distance appear like snow capping the towering mountain tops. The coloured strata of the volcanic rock of these cliffs are spectacular in themselves: chocolate brown, rust red, yellow ochre, white and cream. The geological uniqueness however is not the only thing that makes Santorini a special holiday destination.

Beaches
Being a volcanic island, the beaches are not of the ubiquitous golden sand variety that you can expect to find on many Greek islands. The south-eastern side of the island gives the best beaches of wide black lava sand. Other beaches around the island consist of black sand strewn with pumice stones and black pebbles. Because the beaches of Santorini consist of black volcanic matter, the heat of the sun is absorbed rather than reflected. Consequently, the sand can get incredibly hot during the day so, to avoid burning the soles of your feet, wearing protective shoes is highly recommended. Kamari and Perissa are popular beaches on this southeast coast both with beautiful mountain surroundings and wide stretches of black sand. Santorini main beaches have water sports. In general, Santorini beaches are wide with mainly black sand. There are also lots of currents and the waves can get very high especially at the north east side of the island. Kamari and Perissa are popular beaches with their beautiful surroundings and black sand. If you seek calmer beaches, it is better to go to Monolithos, Vlichada or Agios Georgios. For snorkelling visit Amoudi. Read more about the beaches in Santorini

Nightlife
Santorini has a varied nightlife, and most bars and discos are in Fira, Kamari and Perissa. Fira is probably the most popular place, and here you shouldn't miss having a drink in one of the little cafes on the steep side. The amazing view, relaxed atmosphere and soft live Jazz music from The Zafora cafeteria, for example, will give you an unforgettable experience. Read more about the nightlife in Santorini

Food and Restaurants
You can get almost everything on Santorini - from traditional Greeks food to international gourmet dinners. Try the local wine Visanto and see what you think!!! In Fira on the side of the Caldera there are numerous eateries and grill taverns where you can enjoy all kind of foods from cheap souvlaki, Giros with pita bread and hamburgers to expensive up market restaurants .The same setting of eateries can be found in Oia, Imerovigli and all the other resorts of the island.

Weather
The weather in Santorini like in most of the Aegean islands consists of beautiful and dry Summers with temperatures reaching sometimes 35- 37 degrees but the Meletemia (north summer winds) decrease the high summer temperatures. The north east part of the islands is mostly windy while the west part is protected from the winds from the island of Thirasia. Winters can be cold and wet but never reaching bellow zero temperatures.

Shopping
Santorini is a bit of a cosmopolitan island, just the number of luxury yachts that stop here is very high for such a small island, so it is quite expensive. Many artists live here, and you can buy a lot of original stuff - hand painted umbrellas, ceramics, jewellery, art etc. You can also get nice icons, but be careful, anything older than 1821 needs a special permit to be exported. There is also local wine worth trying and taking with you, the famous fava beans of Santorini (best in Greece) , local cheeses and caper. Of course if you stay longer in Santorini and would like to have your self catering, there are major international chain supermarkets like Lidle, mini markets, green grosser and all kind of shops you will find in a city.

Although Fira is considered to be the best town for shopping in Santorini, Oia comes a very close second. In fact, for clothing, handicrafts and artwork it definitely surpasses Fira. The narrow cobbled streets are bursting with tiny little shops selling all manner of beautiful fabrics, jewellery, artwork, antiques, Venetian mirrors and souvenirs. The general ambience too is preferable to the busy streets of Fira.

In Oia you will find compact, jewel-like shops and art galleries with a much more sophisticated, ethnic quality to them. Furthermore, because of its stunning vantage point, Oia has inspired and attracted many artist. Consequently, it is not surprising that it is considered to be the artistic capital of Santorini and for this reason you will discover many small art galleries, often with work that is more imaginative and original than can be found in Fira.

Santorini is quite a small island, and it is easy to get around. There are local buses to take you to most places, but of course you can also rent a car or a bike. There are also taxis on the island.

The harbour of Athinios where the ferryboats stop is connected to Fira and the rest of the island by a well made serpentine road. Driving up or down this road can be quite an experience for anyone afraid of heights. The old port of Fira under the town is used only for passengers from the cruise ships. You can also walk up or down that road (almost 900steps) or take a donkey ride all the way. There is also a cable car taking you straight to Fira. As you arrive at Athinios you can rent a car straight away from the spot. Santorini has a very good road network and a car or a bike will make your stay more convenient.
