Why Santorini is the travel destination of your dreams

Cyclades ● Santorini ● 28 October 2017

Greek Island Pass gives you the opportunity to travel affordably to/ from Santorini during your Greek Island Hopping. Santorini is the last stop in Cyclades, a dream destination for so many people worldwide. Words are not enough to describe the beauty of this volcanic, romantic place for your vacations in Greece, but we will try because you should know why Santorini is the travel destination of your dreams. White-washed houses hanging on the caldera, tiny white chapels at the edge of the cliff, the breathtaking view of volcanic caldera and the beaches with the extraordinary beauty are only some of the reasons that make Santorini so popular.

You may have heard that in Santorini, you will enjoy the most impressive sunset of your life, and it is true. You will catch the sun sinking into the sea and feel the magic of the gold Greek sun mirroring at the crystal blue waters and colouring the volcanic cliffs pink and orange.

The stunning villages with the view of the whole caldera, such as Oia, Firostefani Santorini and Fira Santorini, are the trademark of the island. Romantic and elegant create an amazing setting not only for the sunset but also for walking around the whole day. Oia is the ideal place to feel the aura of caldera, listen to jazz music in one of the wonderful cafés and bars, enjoy your dinner or lunch in luxury restaurants and understand the mystery of this place. Fira Santorini is your best choice to do both. Watch the magnificent view as well as have fun in the clubs of this settlement, which prove that not only Mykonos is a Greek island with vivid nightlife. Still, you can combine both Greek islands thanks to your possibility of Island Hopping in Greece, and combine which island has the best nightlife.


The beaches in Santorini are different than the golden sandy Greek beaches with the emerald waters. The geographical characteristics of the volcanic island, the extraordinary landscape and the caldera created an impressive setting with red and black colours. Red Beach (Santorini), Vlychada, Perissa Beach (Santorini), White Beach (Santorini) and Kamari Beach (Santorini) are beaches with wild natural beauty, which creates an outstanding scenery around the lunar coves.


Santorini has also a rich and long history, which makes it the dream travel destination for those, who love ancient history. It was the cradle of the Cycladic Neolithic civilisation, which has been destroyed by the eruption of the volcano around 1,650 B.C. In Fira Santorini, there are two significant museums, the Prehistoric Thera Museum, which presents the most important murals found at the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri Minoan Site (Santorini), and the Archaeological Museum of Thera, which hosts statues and findings from the Archaic, Geometric, Hellenistic and Roman Periods. The archaeological site at Akrotiri Minoan Site (Santorini) is definitely worth a visit as it was constructed around 4,500 B.C. and was covered by ashes and lava due to the enormous volcanic eruption around 1,650 B.C., and thus, it was preserved intact through time.
