60-Second Geography

Santorini

Rising out of the Aegean sea, Santorini is really a jewel among the many wonderful Greek islands. Set in its volcanic rim, surrounded by the bluest of water, the island and its villages are one of those destinations that find their way to the top of many traveler’s “must see and do before…” lists.

 

  • 70% of tourist arrivals are in the months from May to September. Famous for its white buildings set against the blue seas, Santorini sits on a volcanic structure and a cataclysmic eruption may have given rise to the legend of Atlantis.
  • Greece is one of the most affordable of European destinations.
  • The villages of Thira, Firastefani and Oia are perched high above the sea on the side of the island most often visited by travelers.
  • The main port at Athinios will take you to Thira, the island’s capital. Thira, and the smaller town of Oia, offer the visitor the culture of Greece, quaint hotels, a wide variety of shopping experiences and great dining all set on the edge of a volcano from which one can sit for hours and enjoy the view.
  • Oia’s port is easily accessible from the town and surrounded by sea food dining and taverns. After a meal, the traveler can return to the top of the hill by donkey.
  • The villages of Perissa and Kamari have black sand beaches on the eastern side of the island. The black sand is beautiful, but – and this is a real warning – very hot in summer: wear beach sandals! 
  • Public transportation on the island is cheap and pleasant, though sometimes crowded. Scooters, motorbikes and autos are available for the more adventurous. Diving centers are available across the island; scuba and snorkeling are favorite activities here.
