Looking for some peaceful relaxation? Of course, there are the usual destinations like Bali and Hawaii, but lying majestically in the middle of the Aegean Sea is Santorini Island, one of the southernmost islands off the southern coastline of Peninsular Greece. Like most islands, the main gist of Santorini is its ability to lull visitors into a euphoric sense of tranquillity and relaxation.
THE must-do activity when visiting Santorini is to catch the sun setting into the Aegean Sea. One of the best places to catch this awe-inspiring scene is at Oia, the scenic village of Santorini built on a steep slope and showcasing its iconic white houses. Santorini is also famous for its many beaches such as Kamari, Perivolos and the black sand beach of Perissa. Regardless of which beach (might we suggest visiting them all?) you visit, be assured that it will be an unforgettable experience! You won't find too many vehicles on the island that is made more for evening strolls and exploration.
Speaking of unforgettable experiences, why not also take the opportunity to visit Nea Kameni, a small island untouched by man not far from Santorini? The catch? It is home to an active volcano (and hot spring) which travellers can choose to explore!
The only drawback about visiting Santorini is finding it hard to leave once you are there! Don't believe us? Visit Santorini yourself and experience its alluring beauty!
