Out-of-this-world sunsets? Tick. Stunning sea views? Tick. Pretty whitewashed towns? Tick! Sensational Santorini is an all-round winner. Its white and blue villages that cling to the cliffside overlook an enchanting caldera, while below, the turquoise Aegean waters meet a crisp-white shore. Romantic Greek escapes this way…
- Foodies – World-renowned Greek fare is made even better with a few Santorini specials. Pomegranates thrive in this sun-drenched region, so expect these tiny red jewels to feature in many of your meals. The rich volcanic soil also gives you the chance to sample white aubergine. It’s bright-white in colour and much sweeter than its purple counterpart.
- Nightlife lovers – Are casual cocktails up your street? Eager for an ice-cold beer on the beach? You can easily do both. Some of the island’s bars are low-key and atmospheric, while others will be a bit livelier. You’ll also find a sprinkling of jazz bars around, if saxophone-filled soirées are your bag.
- Beach lovers – Thanks to it volcanic past, Santorini’s sand beaches vary in colour from black to burnt orange. Many of these spots are framed by breathtaking cliffs, creating the perfect backdrop to a day of swimming and sunbathing. The darker sand gets extremely hot in the midday sun, so don’t forget to pop on your sandals!
