Santorini, the Greek island of the Cyclades, is the perfect destination for a romantic holiday for couples. This precious gem that is located in the Aegean Sea is famous for its charm and magic of its sunsets, its crystal clear sea, its special red-black colors and the wonderful trips and excursions that can be arranged every day.
The surreal landscape of the submerged caldera and the white houses perched on small hills that form the backdrop to the deep blue of the sky and the sea, steep lava cliffs, narrow streets to cross with a bike or a scooter create the island’s magical atmosphere. The caldera in this place, which is the large crescent-shaped bay that overlooks the sea, is all that remains of what was most likely the largest volcanic eruption the history of our planet.
The natural sceneries that Santorini has to offer its guests are really many: the beautiful sunsets of Oia, where the vibrant sun shines bright red will captivate you and make you spend unforgettable romantic moments; particularly, you will enjoy the village of Fira with its dominant colors of blue and white, full of beautiful views and especially exceptional views of the sea.
It is wonderfully romantic in the evening when the lights of the city reflect on the dark sea creating a one of a kind scenery! Visit Persissa, by the unique black sand beach, Imerovigli, an oasis of peace and tranquility that is on the top of the Caldera and offers beautiful views of the sea volcanoes or the village of Akrotiri which has a lovely church and a site of important archaeological interest.
Being on an island, you certainly can not miss the beautiful beaches on which to lie down to take a bit of sun, dive into the calm crystal clear sea or simply relax in the company of your loved one. Sand, rocks and coves are waiting to make you spend absolutely unforgettable moments: the Red Beach, as it is due to the particular red color of its sand, the Perissa beach which owes its charm to its length and to its unique black sand, Perivolos beach which is quiet and breezy and where you can enjoy water sports and admire the white greek-style homes that surround it. Finally, the beach of Cape Colombo, one of the least crowded beaches in the island.
Santorini, therefore, is the perfect place for a romantic escape from your everyday life! Beaches, sun and relaxation await for you to enjoy the exciting and unforgettable days.
