Santorini!

Hello! Welcome back to my blog.

This post is all about beautiful Santorini! Santorini has to be the place I see most on Instagram and I can definitely see why, it’s just so photogenic everywhere you look! The landscape of Santorini is like nothing I have ever seen before, it was devastated by a volcanic eruption causing the landscape to have a very rugged coastline in the shape of a crescent moon which ultimately gives it the most fantastic views! And of course, Santorini also has the most fantastic sunsets, the best place we found to see the sunset was in Oia however, you need to make sure you get there very early, at least 2 hours before sunset to find a spot, that’s if you want to sit down anywhere! And beware sitting down at a bar also comes with a price, we paid 5 euros each for a small coke!

While we were in Santorini we stayed in a place called Imerovigli a cute town more central of the island. However, after visiting Oia I wish we had stayed there but it was way too far out of our price range, it was also very easy and cheap to catch public transport from Imerovigli to Oia. On the day we visited Oia we actually walked the coastal path from Imerovigli. This took about 3 hours however, it was so worth it as it had the most amazing views, in fact this walk/hike is actually what a lot of people recommend you to do in Santorini.

We were only in Santorini for a total of 3 nights, so we spent two half days travelling, one full day visiting Oia and the other full day taking a boat from Fira to Nea Kameni where we swam in the hot volcanic springs and hiked around the crater of the volcano, this was a really good trip and only took about 4 hours. If you do, do this trip I would recommend wearing sensible footwear as Sam really badly stubbed his toe and also not wearing your favourite swimming costume as it will be stained brown from the volcanic springs! I’ll live a link here to the company we went with. You also may want to take into consideration that when walking down to the port from Fira it takes a good 20-30 minutes as it is so steep. There was no way we were going to be able to walk back up it so we took the cable car up costing 8 euros per person, another cost factor you will have to take into consideration when booking this trip. However, instead of taking the cable car you could also take a donkey up the steep path, which is a very touristy thing to do but I would not recommend this as I think that it is so cruel!

I hope you enjoyed my post on Santorini and I will link my Santorini Travel Diary below.

Lots of love, Melissa x
