Things to do in Santorini range from exploring the archaeological remains from the ancient times to hiking the island's trails with the sight of its active volcano never too far away. You can witness the fatal consequences of the volcano's eruption at Akrotiri, a Minoan Bronze Age settlement largely buried under a thick layer of volcanic ash, which preserved it for posterity. Steep red cliffs contrasting blue waters remain a mesmerizing feature of Red Beach, which attracts tourists in search of a leisurely day in the sun.

Where to stay in Santorini

The vast majority of visitors to Santorini flock to the island's western side, where popular towns like Fira and Oia offer rooms with sweeping views of the caldera and the sea. The beach hotels on the eastern side of the island remain less crowded, though they offer more affordable lodgings without skimping on modern amenities. Keep in mind that even private inns and budget hotels hike their prices at the start of each tourist season, so think ahead and take advantage of discounts by booking well in advance.
