Arguably one of the most popular islands in Greece, the honeymoon island otherwise known as Santorini combines beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters, spectacular scenery; think 360 degree views of magnificent oceanic blue waters and Grecian cliff side punctuated with traditional white and blue houses, ancient towns enriched with history, incredible food and wine, and THOSE sunsets.
The Top Three - What to do:
Day trip to the beach town PERISSA; a beautiful beach situated just southeast of Fira. Perissa beach features black sand, crystalline calming water and spellbinding views. Whether you prefer to snorkel, float atop the Mediterranean Sea or simply sunbake with a good book, Perissa accommodates to all. After you’ve finished on the beach, head to one of the many local restaurants or bars for a post-swim meal and well deserved drink (you are on holiday after all!!).
Take in a SANTORINI SUNSET. Few places match the bewitchingly beautiful sunsets that locals are so lucky to experience day-in-day-out. I romance mecca and home to creating truly surreal twilight moments, the town Oia is the go-to for aw-inspiring sunset views. Whether with a partner, group of close friends or simply taking it all in on your self, witnessing an ethereal sun-down moment in Santorini is a bucket list must.
Dine at KIPARI WINE RESTAURANT. All you need to know: the food is delicious, the service is fantastic and the Mediterranean restaurant offers one of the best views… ever! An outstanding culinary experience, make sure your place your reservation well in advance and request a table alongside the edge of the balcony for the best view in the house.
