Santorini Beaches and walks

Step out of your hotel in Santorini Greece and enjoy a walk from Fira to Oia.  If you particularly enjoy watching the sunset, you should start this walk at about 4 in the afternoon.  Take in the beautiful sights and fresh air all the way.

The views at Amoudi Bay are absolutely superb.  Make sure that you take the time to enjoy some delicious fresh seafood and perhaps even a cocktail as you enjoy the calming effects of the sea.

The black, volcanic sand of Perissa Beach and the contrast it creates against the crisp blue water makes for a truly unique day at the beach.  Enjoy a day by the sea and enjoy some sun and the calming effects of the water.  The Red Beach is another famous spot and is certainly worth visiting.

The view from Skaros Rock is another one of the top local attractions.  Visitors and locals recommend that you wear appropriate hiking shoes and clothes when navigating this pathway.  It can get quite steep and a bit slippery so proceed with caution and take your time.  Make your way up during the cooler hours of the day to avoid getting too hot and tired.
