Best Things To Do in Santorini

Volcanic activity plays a role in many of Santorini's popular activities, from swimming and sunbathing at the molten-dyed beaches to witnessing consistently gorgeous sunsets from the cliffs at Oia. Another option is to dive right in: Try sailing the clear blue caldera where the city of Atlantis was said to have stood, or bathe in the hot springs surrounding the Santorini Volcano (Kameni). If you're more of a gastronome, take a tour of the Boutari Winery in the town of Perissa. Santorini is home to several wineries and is especially known for its strong reds.
