Day 3: Folegandros - Santorini

7 day route from Paros to the Cycladic Islands

Santorini

Of all the Greek island resorts, the prize for most romantic definitely goes to Santorini. The name is commonly understood to refer to all five islands of this small archipelago: Thira, Therasia, Palaia Kameni, Nea Kameni, and Aspronisis, shaped in a ring and rising from volcanic origins.

Santorini’s unusual history resulted in some dazzling natural attractions: beaches with black sand, turquoise seas, cliff-side grottos, and exquisitely beautiful sunsets. The backdrop of such a stunning landscape helps to underscore the snow-white houses and blue church cupolas. This color combination has become Santorini’s calling card and now adorns hundreds of advertising photos.

The island’s largest population centers are Thera, Oia, Phoenicia, Athenos, and Kamari. Some are frequented for the chance to enjoy the view of the caldera and volcano, while others for their proximity to the beaches. In Thera, an almost mandatory point on the itinerary is a visit to the church of St. Mina.

The best beaches are considered to be Monolitos, Kamari, and Perissa. In the summer there’s no shortage of vacationers, so it’s better to head for some seclusion at Columbo beach in the eponymous cape.
