Santorini conjures up images of white-washed houses, blue-domed churches and dramatic cliffs. Swim in the spectacular hot springs of the Santorini Caldera, explore the ancient city of Thera or enjoy a picturesque cable car ride up to the Old Town, all before embarking on your search for the iconic blue-domed church with beautiful sea views. The southernmost of the Cyclades, it enjoys great weather from early spring to late autumn and with the island's never-ending vineyards, Santorini is simply Greece at its traditional best!
Santorini is like no other Greek Island, its dramatic crescent shape was created from a huge volcanic eruption thousands of years ago. Towering cliffs on the west coast afford possibly the best and most famous views in the whole of the Mediterranean! While on the east coast the volcanic sand beaches offer a diversion to many other attractions, from Perissa’s fantastic array of watersports to the silky black sands of Kamari – a legacy of the island’s volcanic past.
Visit the capital of Santorini, Thira, single travellers can clip-clop their way up to this ancient town on a donkey or alternatively take a cable car up which offers spectacular views over the caldera! Perched on the top of the caldera rim, Thira overlooks the Aegean Sea and offers authentic shops coupled together with beautiful architecture that is unique to the island of Santorini. Explore the city further and you will find picture perfect tavernas and might even stumble across the iconic blue-domed church if you are lucky! To see the island’s famous sunsets, Oia is the place to go and if you fancy it take a dip in the hot springs!
I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
