SANTORINI ISLAND & IMEROVIGLI
All the islands of the Aegean are unique in varying ways – some of them are tiny and perfect for relaxation, others are full of partying youths, some are simply made for big tours and exploring. One of the best things about Santorini is that you'll always have something new to do, as there are many options that span all the hours of the day.
Due to the volcano eruption, there are many different geological formations shaping the shores of Santorini and their landscape, and each of its beaches has a unique sort of environment. There is something for every taste, from organised, busier beaches to more secluded spots, and from vast shores covered in sand to small rockier bays. Even the colours vary, and you will find red, white, and black sand and pebbles, depending on the spot. Take your pick!
During vacations, we all want to indulge ourselves a bit, and Santorini has plenty of shops to explore and find a nice present for yourself or your loved ones. Most of them are found in the capital, Fira, but you will find a cozy little shop in pretty much every village of the island as well.
