A wonderful touring activity is a day trip by boat to the volcanic islets of Nea Kameni, Palea Kameni and Thirassia, which are situated opposite Santorini, to swim in the hot springs of the area.
Due to its rich history, Santorini provides visitors with some amazing archaeological and historical sites. We first recommend visiting the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri, which is very well-preserved as it was buried under lava and ash for centuries. Some archaeologists believe that Akrotiri is connected to the Lost Continent of Atlantis.
You should also visit the archaeological site of Ancient Thira and will have the opportunity to admire remains of sanctuaries, houses, a theatre, a stoa, and a gymnasium. The view from Ancient Thira is simply magical. The ruins of the Venetian Castle ‘Skaros’ are located at close proximity to the Astra Santorini Apartments & Suites in Imerovigli. At this castle, Marco Sanudo raised the Venetian flag when the island was conquered in 1207.
The beaches on Santorini Island are some of the most unique in the Aegean region. The eruption of the Santorini volcano thousands of years ago resulted in the creation of some of the most dazzling beaches in the world, with colorful sand and pebbles, such as the Red Beach and White Beach near Akrotiri, and the black and grey beaches of Kamari, Monolithos, Perissa and Perivolos.
There are also some very beautiful Santorini beaches on the northern coast, including Armenaki and Amoudi, as well as the beaches of Baxedes, Koloumbos, and Vourvoulou. We recommend marking these beaches on your map of Santorini.
