Santorini

Santorini Yacht Charter Guide

Rising brusquely from the Aegean Sea, the island of Santorini is surrounded by steep cliffs, 1.000 feet high, resulting from one of the biggest volcanic eruptions ever recorded  in history, which made a circular island into a crescent that wraps around a caldera crowned with whitewashed settlements that cling to their tops and trail down their sides. Santorini is situated at the most southern point of the Cyclades in the Aegean Sea and is probably the most famous of the islands.

Santorini, considered one of the most romantic places on earth,  is famous for its incredible sunsets, fine wine and breathtaking views and is certainly a must destination for a yacht charter. The island has some of the most unique beaches in Greece, including “Red Beach” a pebbly beach with a stunning red backdrop and  “Kamari” characterized by its impossibly black sand.

 

Oia is the most famous village in Santorini, known for its quiet life and stunning sunsets. This complex of charming houses in narrow streets, blue domed churches, and sun-bathed verandas  is carved right on the cliffs and visitors will enjoy walking around the picturesque village admiring the traditional Greek architecture, cafes and tourist shops. Oia has several cultural attractions, including the Maritime museum, and one can easily distinguish between the houses built for Venetian sea captains and the more traditional “cave houses” of the villagers. Oia also has a small port called Ammoudi, which can be reached by a set of 300 steps leading down.

Firá, the Santorini’s picturesque capital, Imerovigli and Firostefani are other beautiful villages, perched on the caldera, that are certainly worth the visit. Getting around the island is quite easy. You can rent a car or you can take the rare chance to travel around the island by donkey.

visiting santorini

Enjoy the magnificent view at Franco’s bar in the town of Fira while listening to classical music and venture to the famous taverna “Metaxi mas” in one of the most graphic villages of the island called Exo Gonia; for many this is the best restaurant on the island. For those looking to dance the night away until the early morning hours, “Enigma” club is the most famous night club of the island with an incomparable view. There is nothing better than watching the sun rise while enjoying a drink.

 

thirasia & aspronisi

Just a few miles away  you can find two tiny islands called Thirasia and Aspronisi, which are part of a volcanic crater that emerged from the sea. Thirasia is serene and undeveloped and untouched by tourism to this day. It is characterized by narrow streets, colourfully painted blue, green and yellow houses and plenty of flowers that have been planted throughout. The capital, Manolas, is situated right opposite Santorini and has a beautiful monastery called Koimiseos from which visitors can enjoy a magnificent view. Apsronisi, literally meaning “white island’, is a small rocky uninhabited private island. It has two pebbly beaches and a small harbor, and as it is not visited by tourist boats, can make for a beautiful secluded anchorage.

nea kameni & palea kameni

Nea Kameni, meaning “new” and Palea Kameni, meaning “old” are two small islets in the center of the caldera of Santorini and are considered the youngest volcanic islands in Greece. Both islands are completely covered in volcanic stone. Visit Nea Kamani to view the volcano’s crater, a short twenty minute walk from the harbor. At  Palea Kameni you can swim in the hot springs; the water’s temperature is around 33 Celcius and contains sulfur, known for its skin benefits.
